    What Quarantine Activities Are You Doing?

    I'm interested in how we are all using this Covid-19 time to stay productive and reconnect with things we've been putting off. Learning new things, picking up a new/old hobby, maybe even getting outside and exercising again. I think sliding into the comfort of Netflix or whatever we do to unwind...

    Rocky Patel On The Recent FDA Ruling

    More cigar specific, but we're all in the same boat. His estimate of the cost of post-2007 products is pretty scary IMO. Curious about what you guys think.

    Sad morning

    One of my colleagues in the orchestra passed away this morning. He had a massive heart attack during rehearsal and we lost him right there on stage. I've never seen anything like that before. It sobers you up very quickly. Obviously all activities were cancelled. I spoke with him about ten...

    Has anyone tried this? Is it just repackaged Bullseye Flake, or is it actually something different?

    Remember Pete Rose?

    Having a little more free time than usual these last couple of days, I got to thinking about the Big Red Machine. Most of you guys from my generation (I'm 48 now) will remember the Cincinnati Reds in their prime. Many will also remember Pete Rose and all the controversy which ended in his...

    Rossi Pipes

    I was down at one of the local cigar shops today, and I saw the has a few of the Rossi remakes for sale. I read up on them a little and discovered they have a long history and we're a competitors with Savinelli. The pipes I saw seem to be well made with no pits and good drilling. At around $60...

    Five Tins of Copenhagen

    Condor Original Long Cut- thank you alandadp!!!

    I finally was able to try the Condor that alandadp sent me a few months ago. The delay was because it arrived at my mom's house up here in the US and we didn't get back stateside until last week. Wow, what passes for OTC across the pond makes our versions (the Capt., the Prince, et al ) even...

    World Cup anyone?

    It's a pretty big deal down here. Even though México isn't a powerhouse, they managed to overcome the formidable squad from Cameroon. They'll need all of their newfound confidence as the face Brazil next week.  :lol:  Any of the brothers out there following?

    MisterE in Acapulco

    I just got home from a quick getaway down to Acapulco. We had a great time, ate waaaay too much, swam, but no sunburn...rained the whole time. No biggie, because Acapulco, rain or shine, is still a helluva good time. Me, with Ferndown and Marlin Flake from 2004, enjoying the view from our room...

    Quitting cigarettes with other forms of tobacco

    Okay. It seems that cross-addicting into some other form of tobacco is much like quitting drinking by only drinking beer and wine coolers. Same drug, different delivery. Granted, there are many who consider pipe and tobacco much as connoisseurs treat wines or fine whiskeys. But for the...
