  1. Being the firefighter I am, I see some stacks all the way to the ceiling. I'm retired now, no I'd hate to see his insurance for this, that's a lot a smokes. How would I make up my mind, close my eyes, spin around and point. 😄 Oh, by the way, I came here for some post vaccine shot info....Not what I was expecting.
  2. I can't wait for the new Montecristo Herederos release. Some aged H. Upmann Petit Coronas Behike any
  3. Yes! Stay vary far away from instagram. I was taken for 1 grand. The "store" had others talking them up. So I thought, hey, if other shops are giving them props they must be good. I also say check reddit. That there is a good source. Good luck.
  4. Now that I have been made aware of this I see them in old western tv shows.
  5. That may be what is in the bottom drawer. Maybe a spring open type, push in to unlatch and pop out? Very cool item.
  6. When I say 250 count, I mean something like this. My bad. I am talking box count.
  7. What size are you considering as "Large"? 200 - 250? I'd like to see one that has pull out trays for open box's on the top 1/4, pull out bin's for loose cigars middle 1/4 with a drawer for cigar accessories such as punch's, scissors etc..., and shelves on the bottom 1/2 for storing and aging.
  8. Public safety. At last count 87 boxes and a few hundred loose in 6 different humidors for the Cubans, non-Cubans, and brand. Usually have one a weekend with a different scotch each time. Looking for that perfect pair.
  9. I read an article about that very subject an the Irishman. How some of the stars had specific cigars they wanted and that they had a hard time keeping them in stock. The article also mentioned that so many scenes had someone smoking a cigar in it that they had to have a couple of guys watching for continuity when a scene cut and when is started up again,making sure the cigar was the correct length. They even had to have the stand-ins have cigars. Just found the article. It is in Cigar Aficionado. If you are interested type cigars-in-the-irishman in your search bar and it should be in the results.
  10. You break it open after you down a couple of glasses of Louis XIII Black Pearl Cognac that sold at auction last month for $13,500 plus fees.....
  11. @Derboesekoenig Yea. I went back and read it again after I posted. Seen that they were just mentioned so I removed the post. Thanks...?
  12. HAPPY BIRTHDAY FELLOW AQUARIAN!!! Mine was the 5th. 56 but I feel, play, smoke, and drink like a 28 year old. The wife say's I act like a 5 year old.....We've been married 36 years, you think she'd know me by now. Fun fact: Accordingly, Aquarius is the most humanitarian astrological sign. Have a couple for me Rob. Stay healthy my friend. Tim
  13. So according to this article, the guys at the firehouse are feeling left out when I talk about knitting? Right....Maybe I feel left out when she talks about breastfeeding.....?
  14. Rob, Di and team, congratulations on 15 years. Lets wish for at least another 15 of good health, good friends, and great cigars! Well done! Tim
  15. @RDB glad she is ok. My mother was IN the hospital for a few tests because she had fallen a couple of times over the weekend. CT, X-Rays, everything comes back normal. We're told all is good. She can go home in the morning. Someone will be by to make sure there are no tripping hazards. 2:20am the morning of discharge; " Mr.. Tim we are sorry to tell you we just lost your mother. She coding and we were not able to bring her back. Sorry". So, if you believe in a god, thank him. Mother was 79. And according to the doctors, in great health.
  16. So guy’s I got some bad news today. Due to some damage done to my muscle and nerves in my right hand from several years of fighting fires and typing of all things, I developed Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. I had the surgery scheduled until I met an officer who lost the use of his hand due to a surgery gone bad, so I pulled out since I need my trigger finger and of course all the others. Now, two years later I am having tingling, stabbing pain, and numbness in my hand and my hand inadvertently opens up on its own. The orthopedic says that I have lost so much muscle in my hand due to the inactivity of the nerve, that I may lose my hand permanently because nerves and muscles do not regenerate very quickly. Secondly, I have recently been seeing a flash of light in my right eye, in the corner, looked like I had a hair. I called the doc immediately and was told to come in same day. Apparently this flash of light is what you see when the vitreous fluid sac starts to detach from the retina. After a short time the other eye will follow. Apparently there is no treatment for this other than “no sudden jarring moves or running or blows to the head.” I am writing this in hopes that with folks all over the globe in the forum, someone may have had this or knows of someone and some reassurance would be great right about now. Thanks to all. Tim
  17. 40 - 50 boxes at a time, in 1 containidor, will be a hell-uv-a container. I use the 41 quart weather-tight by IRIS. It holds about 12 - 14 boxes depending on your box size. It's like putting a puzzle together to fit as many as you can. I have 3 - 320 gram boveda's and run a wireless hygrometer / temperature monitor in it so I don't have to worry about opening the container. And it is not so heavy as to be a hassle to lift and not too big to be a pain to move. The 4 I have sit in a hall closet and are at a constant 65% rh and 65 degree f. I check on them every couple of month's, open the containers, make sure no mold or bugs popping up, then close um back up. I'd like to see some pics of your container when you get it figured out. It seams that everybody has their own set-up they like though. Good luck.
  18. Yep. Cool man. She would also talk about when you wanted to call someone the phone number actually started with a name and then numbers. If my memory serves me it was something like, Hello operator, please connect me to groveland 4372. Prior to that it was, hello operator, please connect me to Cunningham on the Richman line. Oh, I just remembered they were call switchboard operators when they would plug you in to a call. How times have changed. Now it's, Siri call Domino's pizza. lol......
  19. My mother worked as an operator when she started with the company and you would pick-up the receiver and tell her the number and she would pull different cords and plug you in. Kind of like what you see in the old movies or show's like Andy Griffith.
