  1. If the temps outside are acceptable, buy a small canopy tent such as this one from Eurmax. You can find them now for under $200. I have one that I use in the summer, as the sun beats on my patio all day long. I can't leave it up in the winter, as we get snow and ice in my area. But for the US Southeast area, I would think this would work fine. And if it's a bit too cool sometimes, you can get one of those propane tank heaters to use as a heat source.
  2. I made a rookie mistake last month. I ordered a 6-pack of Sir Winstons from a 24:24 in mid-December, but failed to record the box code. When the cigars arrived last week, they were wrapped in cellophane and without the box code information. If anyone purchased Sir Winnies in the 24:24 from December 16th and could provide me with the box code you received, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks !!
  3. While in Milan a few years ago, I found a tobacco shop in the Galleria that had nice stock, and I picked up a few boxes of the La Flor de Cano Italian REs (Casanova). Seemed to have decent selection and I found the prices reasonable.
  4. I find the arguments regarding taking less guaranteed contract $$ and making it up with endorsements somewhat questionable. For the most part, baseball players don't make a ton in endorsements. I read one article that stated in 2013, LeBron James made $42 million in endorsements, which was more than the top 10 baseball players combined made. In 2018, Clayton Kershaw (at #37) was the highest baseball player on Forbe's list of the World's Highest Paid Athletes. His salary was $33.238 million, and his total earnings were $34.5 million. Not a whole lot of endorsement income. https://www.forbes.com/sites/kurtbadenhausen/2018/06/13/full-list-the-worlds-highest-paid-athletes-2018/#278db8fc7d9f It's easy to forget how much $5 million a year is, when many of us who have worked our entire lives haven't even earned half of that amount. And we're talking another $5 million a year for 10 years ($50 million). Take the money. That's way too much to pass up IMHO.
  5. I'm always on the lookout for Montecristo Especiales, and hope to acquire a box of HdM Epicure #1s and QdO #50s in the near future.
  6. Love the RyJ Short Churchills, but haven't had any Connie A's yet. Guess I'll need to keep an eye on the 24:24 for these.
  7. I use the $3 Ronson Jet-Lites from Walmart. They are incredibly dependable and if I lose one or it breaks, no big deal. I've been using them for close to 10 years, and only one has crapped out so far.
  8. Rest easy, as you'll be very satisfied with anything you order from Rob.
  9. Great article, but it also saddens me to think of folks like Tom and Ernesto who live under such suppression.
  10. Good one !! Still trying to figure out what a Dsy is, though...
  11. So sorry to hear this, but thankful that your Mom's suffering is over. I still have my Mom, but I lost my dad 10 years ago. While they are no longer with us physically, they are still ALWAYS with us. Treasure your memories of your mom. RIP, Mom.
  12. Very nice !! Congrats and I hope it works well for you !
  13. Like #ayepatz said, these are discontinued, so I wouldn't wait too long to grab some. The prices can only go up and availability down.
  14. I grew up reading his columns in the local newspaper. Never realized he was a big deal outside of my area.
