    I am an idiot....

    Well, I was checking my bead tubes in my humidors and coolidor (how in the hell did this happen? I thought one medium humidor was all I need; now I have five humidors of various sizes and a large coolidor). I had my spray bottle of distilled water and was recharging the beads -- something I've...

    I am in dietary hell....

    My daughter received a book from a relative titled "The China Study" by T. Colin Campbell and she read it over the Christmas weekend. The basic premise is that scientific research into nutrition points to a vegan/macrobiotic diet leads to a healthier lifestyle and shows a higher probability of...

    Please pray for my father....

    My father is currently in a coronary care unit -- in large part to a dysfunctional thyroid that's causing havoc with his body. Not sure what all of this means, but the words "guarded but stable" seem to be the terminology being used right now. I normally don't do this, but I know he can use...

    Illusione M7 Magdela

    I woke up this morning and decided I wasn't going to let today get off to the frenetic pace life seems to be going lately. A cup of coffee, a quick walk with the dogs, and a decision to do some work prep on my deck with a cigar I haven't tried yet. I went to my basement, looked through my...

    My first two cigar evening....

    I'm not only new to Cigar Pass, but to cigars in general. Thanks to Cigar Pass, I am now finding a range of cigars to enjoy -- but to date, I'm a one cigar a day guy. Even then, I'm lucky to get in two or three in a given week. Until tonight. :) After a hectic day of ripping up the lawn...
