Re: Cigars in Cinema

Does TV count?

Doctor Who, “The Ghost Monument” includes a cigar that lights itself with the snap of a finger. Jodie Whittaker is The Doctor.

Re: A Christmas humidity question...

I think you’re worrying about short term changes more than it’s worth. Those cigars travelled in a cargo ship on the ocean to get here and didn’t crack.

Tap water has different amounts of...

Re: Cain NUB & NUB

The blend? First, there was Oliva Cigars. Then, they tried coming up with some hip, new (very strong) blends called Cain. Somewhere in there, they started making these short, fat versions of the...

Re: Your cigar journey

Back during the 90’s cigar boom, I was working as an engineer in a lab near Cleveland. One of our technicians got promoted to head tech and set about redoing the lab in his image. This meant...

Re: Chinese Made Humidor Or Not

When we say coolerdor, weíre referring to insulated chests like you might take on a picnic. You can easily maintain RH in them with a passive system like beads.

You can find other threads on this,...

Re: Chinese Made Humidor Or Not

My experience is that most wood humidors just don’t remain that airtight. This is true regardless of cost. I’ve had 4 or 5 wood humidors over the years and only one holds moisture reliably (a cheap...

Re: Looking for a new laptop, need suggestions.

I’ll second the iPad suggestions. I bought an iPad Air 2 a couple of years ago to use like a Kindle reader. By now, I use it 90% of the time. I use my older HP laptop when I need a spreadsheet.

Re: Beats headphones anyone?

I have personally always disliked Bose products, ever since those muddy sounding, rear firing speakers that came out in the 70s. All hype!

Re: Just Found One Cool Site

Very cool!

For a little simpler stargazing, I like the SkyView app. You point your smart device toward a spot in the sky and it identifies everything the camera as showing.

Re: Whatís your favorite seconds

I like the Oliva 2nds, especially the Liga VM, which I think is the Melanio Maduro. The M robustos are also quite good.

Both CigarPage and Atlantic have 2nds or overruns from time to time. I’ve...

Re: Pushing the Seasoning

When the cooling system runs, it will pull moisture out of the air. It’s going to be hard, if not impossible, for some passive moisture sources to keep up with a mechanical cooling system. I think...

Re: Heading to Chagrin Falls today!

Tim Conway was also from Chagrin Falls. Pretty area, check out Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Or, follow the Chagrin River North to the lake and enjoy a walleye dinner on the water.
