How's life? / When you see it, you'll s**t bricks...

I was out getting some fast-food last weekend, and when passing a building that I have passed hundreds of times before; I looked up. Needless to say I was surprised... I contacted the local newspaper to get the story behind the markings, I was told that the building and markings predates the Nazis use of the symbol.

Still not sure how I feel about it, regardless of the prior meaning of the Swastika; it has been forever tainted...

General Cigar Discussion / Medium cigar kicked my a$$!
« on: 04/06/2014 09:45 PM »
Two times it has happened that I had to put a cigar down, as I was getting too buzzed. First time was 1.5 years ago with a full strength cigar enjoyed on an almost empty stomach. Second time was yesterday, with a San Miguel Torpedo; medium strength.

It didn't even feel like a medium strength, more like medium-mild. I got like 2/3 in and I had to put it down as I was light-header to the point were it just was to much. This was around noon, so couple of hours since breakfast. I really liked it, so I basically retro-haled the whole thing.

I am having a cold at the moment, and have been quite pumped up on Otrivin nasal spray for a few days. I know that this can irritate the mucous membranes in the nasal meatus. Could be that combined with my extensive retro-haling that did the trick. Even took a couple of hours and a nap on the couch for it do back down.

Really caught me by surprise...

I've been looking for airtight tupperware boxes with rubber seals for some time now, and the largest I have been able to get my hands on is 1 gallon. This works great for singles, but is just to small for boxes (pictures). I have been looking for Rubbermaid online and on eBay, and it seems that I am able to get them shipped here but the shipping cost is almost $50...

But, I have found multiple shops that sells a type without a rubber seal. Will this work? The clips does shut the lid pretty tight, but I'm sure it's not 100% airtight. These are both cheap and easy to get, but can I use them as tupperdors?

I think coolers are easier to get, but I really like the ability to stack the plastic boxes.

So I ordered some sticks of Jared's big sale. This is what I got:



The six JDN Antano Peligrosa on the right was my order...

Truly awesome brother, thank you! :bow: The generosity of the fellow geeks is out of this world!
I truly appreciate this Jared, I'm going to keep you in mind when my ISOM orders start coming in  :shades:

One of these sticks are making me curious as hell, haven't dared open it...

So I just received this e-mail:
http://campaign.r20.constantcontact.com/render?ca=02059c5d-529e-44fe-92ea-762fba45fb70&c=db0f5630-bb75-11e3-8aad-d4ae526edd6c&ch=db5bef90-bb75-11e3-8ab4-d4ae526edd6c

I ended up ordering these; have no idea what they are. But they were so cheap I couldn't resist!  :cigarman:

+ I wanted to see how it goes though customs before ordering something more expensive.

So spring is arriving in Norway, but still the evenings and nights are pretty cold. I've moved my humidor and tupperdors into the bedroom, as the other rooms get quite hot during the day (high 70s).

I've read all the threads about high temperatures, and I don't really expect the bedroom to surpass 75'F for longer periods of time.

But what worries me a bit is the temperature swings in the bedroom, even without having any windows open it can still fluctuates between 65'F during the night and 73'F during the day. I expect the swings to become less as the spring progresses, as the night become warmer.

The humidor and tupperdors are stored in the closet, so the temperature rate is probably a bit slower than the ambient temperature.

I'll easily admit I am a bit OCD about my storing conditions , but at what temperature swings should I start to worry?

Cigar Accessories / Book: The Cigar - From Soil To Soul
« on: 03/30/2014 09:23 PM »
During yesterdays herf with Brian (bstessl) and Kent (05Venturer) i mentioned that I was reading The Cigar - From Soil To Soul by Didier Houvenaghel. Filled with cigar history and science, it's a very interesting read.

I recommend it for anyone who want to get a deeper understanding (and appreciation) for cigars and their history  :cigarman:

I bought some sticks from Jeff and they arrived a few days ago. We agreed upon, and I payed for:
5 x Headley Grange
3 x JD Howard Reserve

And here is what I got:


I'm just going to go ahead and call that a bomb, that is very close to double the amount of sticks!  :cigarman:

Thanks Jeff, true BOTL  :usa:
