Marevas (2/5)

  1. I watched a thing on this, IIRC its something to do with the national retirement plan they have, something about it required them to have a corporate backing in the US.
  2. To my knowledge, the main things China imports from Australia are Coal and Iron ore arent they? Even then China from my understanding pretty much controls/owns the Australian government.
  3. When Cuba allied itself with Russia and China didn't they consider that as an issue? Why cant they just take a loan out backed by Chinese banks? China has the capacity to make virtually anything they would need. I don't see why it should be such a big hindrance.
  4. Historically speaking, this has always been Chinas prerogative. One way trade is the norm for china. They export to you, and import as little as possible.
  5. I love how even though cuba is only prevented from trading with the US(and can trade with literally any other country) they call it a blockade. Correct me if I am wrong, but there is no ring of ships surrounding Cuba preventing non-US countries from trading with them, correct?
  6. Its interesting, cuban filler but sumatra wrapper. I wonder what that tastes like!
  7. I as well, i've had my dog Lucy since I was twelve years old. She's 17 now. Hoping I get a few years yet, as she is in good health but I literally have lived more of my life with this dog, then without!
  8. I'm sorry for your loss. Todays evening smoke will be for Tabitha!
  9. A Partagas Serie D No.5. I love shorter/petit robustos. A little bit of a rough start as it was too tight to draw, but after using my draw tool a bit got it going perfectly pairing with a dram of Blantons Single Barrel.
  10. Delicious RyJ on this beautiful spring day. Look at that gorgeous oily rosado wrapper. Delightful.
  11. Interesting to see things from the viewpoint of the old "Boston Blue Blood" type in modern time lol. For me a cigar is a luxury every man can afford. I have a hard time relating with "Ivy League" types though I find myself working with them more and more often as my career advances. Suppose its good to get a peak inside the head of people hailing from such lofty heights from time to time.
  12. As a person with a similarly unfortunate last name, i feel for the guy LOL! Beautiful wood work though.
  13. It would be very hard i imagine to run a business that operates in a socialist country like Cuba that makes top down decisions in this manner!
  14. Sorry for the loss... it is hard to lose a loved one, especially during the holidays.
  15. I plan to wait for two reasons, to see the data, and also to ensure that more at risk people then myself get it. I am very blessed to have a living wage job I can do from home, and while I do get quite bored being home all the time, i am safe and uh a bit fatter. lol.
