Re: Sunday Morning Smoke

HAW, HAW, HAWWWWWW!!! No Vince, you didn't say THAT one!!! THAT'S what they're teaching the kids in our 35 million dollar high schools these days, ha, ha, haaaaa!!!

What you said was the Dow being between 2,000 and 3,000 when you were a kid. Sorry, but unless you were a kid at the age of 453, that couldn't have been possible. That's why I posted the link. ROTFLMAO!!!

Re: Sunday Morning Smoke

Good morning, it is Sunday April 13th 2008, a cool day here in da Burgh, Yesterday was the Bosses Birthday she was 59 , ( & still a mear child ) , But mentaltly she is the OLD lady in this relationship, cause I'm just a little punk kid compaired to her in maturity , I guess when I die I will still be a teen ager or even younger, who knows what is in store for all of US , I know for sure I enjoyed this life to its fullest !, could have I done more in my life , well sure but enjoyed it more , wellllll thats a hard call, I know what I did & what I missesed , well what ever I missed this time , I will try to fit in the next life , I believe there are a finiate number of souls & we get to live over & over again, till we have used up all of our lives & then & only then do we go to heaven or Hell, thats just my Opinion & like I have said before , opinions are like @$$hole$ , everone has one !!
it has been a quiet week at the shop, good days & bad , nothing outstanding happened, , whitch in a way is good, sales were wonderful on Friday , but lack luster the rest of the week, but with Fridays numbers it averaged out the week to welll Just about average ! , I did get a Humidor returned , the guy got it at Christmas & filled it with water & let it sit for a few weeks, instead of a few minutes , well when he dumped it out it was growning hair & the joints had swelled that the top didnt close , it is now a planter , I explained to him that it wasnt my fault he forgot about it for a few weeks or months, that I would get him an other one at a little bit of a discount but he wanted it free, well he ended up moving to a bigger unit & paying for it , But I did toss in a few bundle sticks to make him feel like he got some thing out of the deal, but I made enough on the humi to cover the sticks & still be able to make a credit card payment this month ! hahahaha , all I want to know is HOW can you forget a Humidor filled with water sitting in your basement? , well I just look at this "Gentleman" & see that he cuts about 3/4 of an inch off the top of a double corona & only smokes about 2 inches of it & puts it down , Gulps his drink & gets on his broom stick & flys away , A atrange bird to say the lest , I have know a few witches in my life but this guy is a devouted warlock, complete with the black eye liner & & pentagram chocker , a few tatoos of ocoult figures & a real strange maner about him self, BUT he has CASH , so I put up with him & a lot of others that Dont have CASH hahahahaha .
We had a few warm days hit the low 70's & I had all the doors open & aired out the shop 2 days in a row, then yeasterday my Grandsons first Soccor game of the year, COLD WINDY & WET , I sat on the sidelines hood up teeth chattering & watched a bunch of 10 & 12 year olds running back & forth kicking a ball & the game ending up a 3all tie , no over time or a shoot out , the next 2 teams were ready to take the field, so we vacated the field & got in a NICE WARM car & took the boys to Pacendros Pizza for a little after the game celebration & there grandmothers Birthday all rolled into one , hey I got off cheep this time !
Speaking of Cheep, I dont know what I did but all of a sudden my gas consumption on the Sable has gotten Mind blowing, , I have been averaging 19 to 21 MPG for the past year or so with it , NOW all of a sudden BAM last tank I got 25.7 & the one befor it 28.1, , I think some one is playing tricks on me & adding gas to my tank, Got to be a JOKE on them for sure since the price is just under 3.35 a gallon , I filled up last night at 3.25 a gallon took 9 gallons &had just under 235 miles ....... dammmmm I wish it did that good when it was new , But then gas was 95 cents & I drove 75/80 MPH on the highways just to keep up with the traffic, now I stay on the 2 lane blacktop roads 7 stay of the concrete super slabs & keep my speed under 50 & the RPM's under 2000 & BINGO great MPGS, unless some one is adding gas to my tank, dammmmmmmmm I hope this lasts a LONG time, I was thinking about getting a new one this summer, this one has 166K on the clock, BUT I think I might jusr need to keep it a year longer just to pass the 213K I had on the one before this one , I dont know, I guess if the right deal comes along I might go for it & just keep this one & trade in the wifes car, it is a lot older but only has 88K on it , she seldom drives when we go anyplace & I am not allowd to smoke in her car , so we go in MINE !
I have noticed a few pairs of pants have been getting a slight snug to the waist , so I jumped on the scale & scared myself , 235 , dammmmm Gotta get back to the tofu & water , cut out the apple raisin oatmeal muffins & start back WALKING everday , I was doing just fine till it got COLD last fall , I figured if it was cold enough to crack my cigar it was to cold to go out & walk well It is a lot warmer now , still cool but I dont think it will hurt the morning cigar , ahhh yea me & my Don Carlos #3 & coffee on a morning walk , this morning I had a Olivia series V lancero with my Sunday morning kona , Not bad but didnt light me up like the #3 , I guess old habbits are hard to break, but after all the years its no longer a habbit, it is a way of life , I will still be on the lookout for a better morning smoke , years & years of Gruling reasearch have gone into this project & years more to come I hope to find that elusive PERFECT morning cigar
the NUB ..... what can I say about the NUB ,,,, I had the Habano torp & the Cameroon Torp , Both lasted over 1 hour, SAM you got a winner here !! I have the Conn. to smoke soon, no idea when I will get to it , every one tells me its a mild smoke, but that means I need to smoke it first thing in the morning, ..... dammmmm reasearch will never stop ! hahahaha
I have a weee bit of Eathopian Yourgachef in my press pot this morning , not as crisp as the kona but a Nice coffee , it is matching up well with the gala apple & grapes I am munching on this morning, gotta get the FIBER in the diet , no movements with out it ! hahahaha , speaking of Movement, I guess its TIME hahahah Enjoy Vince

Re: Sunday Morning Smoke

Re: Sunday Morning Smoke

Well, I can understand a warlock, but evidently, there is a warlock missing a few points off the old IQ in Da Burgh as well.

Re: Sunday Morning Smoke

Goodmorning, it is Sunday 20 April ,2008a rainy day here in da burgh but we just had the real first week of spring, it was GLORIOUS , Blue skys hardly a cloud in the sky the temp was in the mid to upper 70's , it was a fantastic week sitting outside the shop sipping single malt scotch & smoking fine old Cigars , & a weeee drop of coffee might have passed the lips on the way , BUT I got to get the guys at the shop to LEARN how to brew a pot of coffee, I have the digetal scale sitting right there , we use it for the pipe tobacco, well all they need to do it drop the paper filter on the scale add 2.5 ounces of coffee , put it in the basket & push the button, the water is plumed right to the pot, well I go in Friday & there are 3 pots of coffee made sitting on the warmers, I can see right through them & one looks like tea , , I pull the filter basket& look in , I see about 1/3 the amount of coffee I use for one pot, & this Joker made all3 pots from the same grounds, , needless to say a LOT of retraining needs to be done as well as remaking the coffee ! , next new hire will be a coffee drinker , not a coke drinker for breakfast kind of guy even if he is a cigar smoking fool, he better make GREAT coffee. I have all the best tools & the best home roasted coffee I can make , all he has to do is push the button on the pot, you dont need to measure the water it is AUTOMATIC , I did remove the front of the machine & turn Down the amount of water per pot, now we get 10 cups per pot not the factory preset 12, but I still use the 2.5 ounces of coffee , I like coffee with BODY !!!!
there is a new coffee roaster in New Brighton Pa , un Common ground s NOT bad I am drinking some of there Yourgachef right now, & my wife is grinding a little beavervally espresso , an Italian roast bean from an undisclosed region , the owner said it is a mix of african, american & asian coffees , well after they are dark roasted I guess you taste the roast more than the bean itself , so we will give it a try today .
We had our first squerrel of the season on the bird feeder , , but the Hawk who uses the feeder as a bait trap , took care of the furry little rodent ! , swoop it was all over , if I hadent heard the crash of the feeder lid I would have missed it all ! fast SOB !!!
the herb are starting to send up new shoots, the chives are all ready 6 inches tall, the rest of the stuff is just showing a bit of green & the garlic is pushing up some nice tops , My grandson has his Pumpkin seeds sprouted & in pots ready to be transplanted along with the watermellon, cant wait for them !!!!, the pumpkins will be ready for Halloween ....
the guy across the street cut his grass Friday, well that gave Barb the Idea that she needed to cut hers all ready, so I went & got her some gas, & then I took off for Slippery Rock Cigars & the POD cast of Blowen smoke , , I had a great time there & when I got back home the grass was cut & I was not one bit tired from watching her cut it ! hahahaha
the gas just keeps going up 3.49 for self serve regular , it sure has cut down on our Saturday & Sunday Cigar rides , it was Nothing to put on a hundred or so miles on a Saturday night just driving the back roads of Western Pa soming a fine old contraband cigar & sipping coffee listening to the radio, Now dammmmmm I just cant seam to convince the boss that 20 Bucks for gas is cheeper than going to the movies & we both enjoy the time together talking, , well she talks & I agree with what ever she is droning on about, it gives us time to comincate, she talks & I agree, & I dont have to say alot , as long as I do it her way she will be so much easyer to live with, & this August it will be 38 years together & she is still talking, so I dont want to interupt her .......
I have a couple of Ribeye steaks that will be hitting the grill about 3:45 today , a baked spud & a little grilled portabella & onions with some roasted garlic, , just dont be down wind of me come Monday ! hahahaha

The buss is full for the cigar crawl on May 17 . 50 cigar smokers on a bus hitting 5 cigar shops eating at 2 different FINE dining establishment, all for $125.00 a person, cant beat it with a stick. great time for all but the poor bus driver hahahahaha well we all kick in a few sticks & a few bucks per crawlwer & he gets one hello of a nice tip !!

I have been noticing my choice of cigars lately has been to the corona & demi Corona , sot of moving away from the double corona & "A" sized sticks, cant tell you went I last had a Cononoe from Fuente, an 8.5 X 52 flagpole of a cigar , the jaw dosent seam to handle the Big cigars much anymore, torp are ok as the bite isnt all that big, & I was thinking of going to a Cigar holder for the big ring stuff, but then you never get all the taste of the wrapper, , dammmm it hell getting old ! hahaha

I have a nice selection of smokes all ready set out for the day, the Don Carlos #3 is all ready history, & I have a Olivia V Lancero , set to go next, & a fallow up to that with a corona from Monte a contraband smke about 10 years in the humi, should be nice with a cup of Kona & a wee dram of Bacardi 8 , I havent had a sip of Rum since last summer, so today I will pass on the single malt well for the first one of the day anyhow , I am not all that excited about rum, but there is a time & place for everything & a little switch up on the taste buds will just make me appricate the single malt a little more next time , after the ribeye & coffee with desert , I have no idea what I will make so far, I think I will fire up some thing rich & sweet I have a verry old Opus must be about 5 or 6 years old, a little torp, not sure of the name , might be the #5 , but who cares what its called , , it is a toss up between it & a Davidoff some about the same time , the perfecto just might be it & save the Opus for a bright sunny afternoon at the shop, , with a scotch, yea the opis needs scotch not Rum, at lest for my taste buds , , , yours might be different so smoke & drink what YOU like not what I like , who knows cream soda & scotch might make a come back some day hahahahaha
Enjoy, Vince

Re: Sunday Morning Smoke

Cream soda and scotch, Vince? Is that one of your concoctions from the 1920's?

BWAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHHAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

To tell you the truth, it actually sounds pretty good, because a good cream soda can make anything taste good.

The Great Dumboni checking in from Noo Yawk Citeh, where it hit a high of 83 degrees on Friday. It's about 20 degrees less today, and THANK GOD!!! I hate where about halfway through spring, . . .

suddenly it's August. No, thank you. As a matter of fact, bring back 30 degree temperatures any time you like. Harumph. I hate summer, but I love spring and fall, as long as we really get spring and fall.

As for Vince's wife, talking for the past 38 years and not tired yet? Wow. I guess that's worthy of SOME sort of gold medal.

I'm celebrating my one year anniversary in my new apartment, since losing my house last year. Still waiting for that biiiig check that's going to straighten my life out, and get me working on some pressing family responsibilities, but that's nowhere in sight. Did have good news on my 2005 and 2006 tax returns. My accountant found them last week while searching for someone else's papers. He had misplaced them last year after I faxed him all the information in July. When I didn't hear from him, I decided not to bother him until this year's deadline. Well, as it turns out, it's all good news, along with the little bit of tax I paid last year, from my little bit of on the books work, along with a $300 "stimulus" check, it seems as though there's some "found money" coming my way for the past three years. I had totally discounted it, but it's much needed.

This will help bridge the gap until that big check comes in. Tomorrow will be seven months since my attorney filed the proceeding for that mission. What a bureaucracy. The money's MINE!!! Noooooooo, they just don't give it to you. You have to have the county play games with you, the county's court system has to make a little money, and of course the firm handling your case has to make a little money too. Okayyyyyyy, . . .

What else is in da nooze?

Cigars, dat's what. I'm pretty much back to smoking three to four cigars a week on a regular basis, which was pretty much the natural level I gravitated toward prior to when my asthma went haywire during the early part of the century. Maxine is hanging in there and will be 19 years, 9 months old if she makes May 1st, which is 95 to you and me. Still alive after eating tainted cat food 16 months ago, as she nears 20. Talk about evidence of God!!!

There'll be some good news for beer fans later over on Spiritus Fermenti, that is, if you're ever in Astoria, or feel like dropping by and seeing what one of the most stalwart neighborhoods in NYC is like these days. Check it out. I should be posting it tonight.

Re: Sunday Morning Smoke

Good morning , it is a beautyful Sunday Morning the 27th of April 2008, I just came in from getting the Sunday Paper & what a wonderful start to a spring day, Blue skys warm, a light breeze & the Bird feeder is teaming with Birds this morning, a few wild caneries , tiny little yellow & black birds with a sweet song, the cardnials & bluejays add red & blue to the color sceeme & the Robing run the yard but never go near the feeder, I guess they are meat eaters & dont go for the seeds ! , the wind chimes are adding to the churping & the doves are QUIET this morning , , if I had a digetal camera I would post some photos but all I have is a very old Nikon 35MM , shot lots of rolls of film back when I first got it , I guess I must have went through 10K rolls of film, the power winder is SHOT , but I still have it on the camera for balance , the thumb advance on the camera is worn & showing signs of its age , it was a big investment back in the early 70's but it has paid for itself time & again .
I have been digging deep in the humidors this past week & have been setting fire to an aray of fine old sticks I did finish the Last contraband smoke in the house this past week, after the letter i got from the treasury dept I just dont want to have some one show up with a warrent & I end up paying a heafty fine so they are all gone , & it was a wonderful experence , I did sip some fine old single malts , ahhhhh yes life is GOOD.

Friday Night the boss & our daughter went to the Lincoln High school for the arts in Midland Pa , the students had put on "Too Kill a Mocking bird " & it was well recieved by all, I was "stuck" at work on Friday night & I wasnt able to go , , , dammmm doged a bullet again hahahaha
Not much going on here , just kicking back enjoying the spring weather & & enjoying life , today i have a do nothing day all ready planed, & when I say do nothing I mean NOTHING< but RELAX, I will cook some thing , but I have no idea what today, , maybe grilled cheese with bacon , I just dont feel like a gourmet meal today , but I might fancy up the grilled cheese a bit, no american cheese on white bread for sure, dont have white bread in the house , but I do have a little oatmeal bread & some Fontenila & Jarlsburg , a few strips of bacon a little tomatoe dammmmmm when I dont get the gourmet spirit even for a grilled cheese sandwich then I guess its time to pull the plug on me !!
I have 2 dance recitals comming up this summer , dammmmmmmm I thought that they we all over for me , but now the grandson is at it like his mother so 2 more waisted days sitting in the high school autotourium , 4 hours of dance to watch 4 minuts of the grandson, I know I am not the only one who fels like this , the shows are just WAY to long sure you gotta get your moneys worth for all the lessons , but how many Private numbers do the kids need dance with the groupe , feature a few outstanding dancers 7 get the show over in 90 to 120 minuts & be done with it , but NO we need to drag it out for over 4 hours , cranky little kids dont want to sit for 4 hours & a lot of grandfathers dont want to sir for 4 hours in the heat with out a drink or even Coffee let alone 4 hours with out a cigar hahahahaha
I have the new car bug again , but there is Nothing wrong with my old car that a good cleaning wouldnt hurt , the glass has this great smokey quality to it , the floor has a good bit of ashes here & there & a few burn hols in the seat, but dammmmm it runs fine it just has a little over 160K on it , like to get an other 160 on it befor I get rid of it ! hahahahaha

not much else going on here in da burgh, the Pirates are loosing the pens are winning & the steelers drafted a running back, when they need linemen, OH well gladd I am just an unintrested observer , time for me to get to the kitchen & make a Sunday morning pot of Kona , get a Don Carlos #3 & get the day started !! Enjoy, Vince

Re: Sunday Morning Smoke

The Steelers drafted a running back? Don't they have "Fast Willie?" Hmmmmmm, Fast Willie got hurt really bad last year, didn't he? This doesn't bode well, because it means they don't have confidence that Fast Willie will come all the way back.

Good Afternoon from the Western Tip Of Lawn Guyland, Noo Yawk, a/k/a Lawn Guyland Sittee, Kweens. The temperature is 52 degrees, it's overcast, and I couldn't be happier about the weather. We've already had eight days in the 70's, and one of those was 83. No thank you, please, not quite yet. We didn't have a real winter and I'd like to have some semblance of a real spring before we head in to summer. I live on the top floor, and even with the windows open for most of the month, the temperature has finally gotten comfortable in my apartment again, . . .

TODAY!!! That's what happens when you live on the top floor, coldest in winter, hottest in summer. I have received word from my attorney that after Dutchess County bangs that check even harder, my "Ship"'s arrival is imminent, within the next month. So will commence the process of finishing the setup of this apartment, putting me in a debt consolidation plan, and getting on with the rest of my life. At my age (51.49), that means getting on with being old. Being old in my case, also means finally taking the steps necessary to take over my father's life. That's a whole other story!!!

Maxine will be 19 years, 9 months old if she makes it to Thursday, which means she'll be 95. Heyyyyy, that's older than Jack LaLanne, and that's old!!! Jack's in better shape than Maxine at this point, but she's a gift from God, been with me most of her years, about one third of my own life time, and I'm happy she's around.

Every time we hit late April, early May, I cringe for my friend down the street, one of my seven best friends. He's got the most horrible "luck," although I don't really believe in luck. If there's a bad computer in the warehouse, or air conditioner, bad mpIII player, he'll get it. It'll crap out right after the warranty. He gets big time in to snow boarding a while back, then about three years ago, decides to invest in all the best stuff, clothing, other apparel, boards, board care stuff, all the best, then suddenly, . . .

NO MORE WINTERS!!! Poor guy. If he goes out for a quart of milk, and there's 500 quarts of milk in the store, he'll get the bad one, and have to go back, that type of guy. And he's the best guy in the world, decent, humble, honest, family guy, loves his mother, helping his sisters to oversee the lives of his young nieces, but if he needs a new TV, he'll go to the store, and . . .

BAM!!! A few months later, something will go wrong. Poor guy. Anyway, I'm loving this 52 degrees. It can stay this way all summer for all I care. If I could make it 32 for my friend down the block, or even 22, I'm fine. I've got a nice space heater, and I can just close the blinds. Keep the 92's and 102's away, please, hee, hee, heee!!!

Cigars. I'm back up to three or four cigars a week, and one of these days, I'm going to have to start chiming back in on that what did you smoke today thread. That's one of the best threads you'll ever find on any web site to get suggestions on cigars to try. If you can't figure out something to try from reading those guys, . . .

maybe you can't read. HA, HA, HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!

Hey Vince, you ever hear from the little Canadian hockey puck, the jet engine mechanic? I tried to send him a birthday e-mail last year and it came back. He was a great guy and I miss him. Only met him once. I hope God is taking good care of him, and that one day he pops up again. His birthday is May 27th. Wherever he is, I'm thinking of you, buddy.

As for you Vince, please God, keep Vince alive forever, because he has to keep posting the Sunday Morning Smoke thread, giving us Nooz Fum Da Burgh, known as Da Boig in some parts of Noo Yawk and Bahstin. Ha, haaaaaaaaaaaa!!! Have a great day every one. Support The United States Military, past, present and future. Vote Democrat in November, which means McCain. That's right, I said McCain, The most Demmican of all the Republicrats we know. Hey, I didn't say things were getting better, because we lost all human hope 40 years ago, when they shot Martin and Bobby. But McCain is better than the other two Demmicans, or are they Republicrats???

BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHAHAHAHAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

EVERYBODY INTO THE POOL!!! WE LIVE IN A CARNIVAL AND THE WHOLE WORLD IS LAUGHING AT US!!!

Re: Sunday Morning Smoke

Goodmorning , it is Sunday May 4th , in 2008 , dammmmm time flys , its all ready May, seams just like yesterday I was thinking about the snow that needed to be removed from the walkway, well its all gone hahahahaha , I had a BUSY week here in da burgh we had an Olivia event Friday night , had a great time with our salesman Andrew , , story swapped cigars smoked & a weeee dram of single malt was sipped & we managed to move a LOT of cigars ! it was a good week in more way than one, on Saturday my brother stopped over & I cooked for his inlaws, they are getting OLD & not getting arround well so I made a few dozen meals for them now all they need to do is defrost & heat , beef tips & noodles ,,angel hair pasta with broccolli & hot peppers ,meat loaf, mac& cheese ,Creamed dryed beef ( she will need to make her own toast hahahah, , stuffed porkchops , Tapalia with a tomatoe basil crust , & tapalia with a cracker crumb crust ( the talipaia was on sale so I loaded up ) , there was a rice dish to go with the fish, but it was a Zaterans box mix so I cant take credit for that one , , everything else was home made , the mac & cheese was the best to me , a little hot pepper cheese added to the the dish gave it just enough heat to let you know its not your ordinary mac & cheese , the mix of cheese was tasty as all get out ! a lot of sharp chedder a touch of blue a dash of feta , a handfull of American, & a big hand full of the KING Regeano Parmageno , a dash of nutmeg & in the oven it went right along with the meat loaf , shopping time cigar breaks & clean up all done in less than 4 hours , dammmm I forgot the turkey burgers & the lemon pepper chicken & the chicken with stewed tomatos & the 6 omlets , just drop them still frozen in a pot of boiling water still in the plastic cooking bag & in a few minuts it will be lip smacking good & hot but a little rubbery, I havent figured out howlong it needs to cook & how long you need to boil it before you find that happy medium of time VS doneness with out hitting the rubber ball stage , I am not one for tossing out the mistakes & have a bad habbit of not keeping good notes on a project so I find my self reapeating the same things just looking for the right time & tempature to hit the sweet spot of perfect done ness from the freezer to the plate with out getting a rubber ball out of it ! , just getting way to old to rely on remembering hat I did last time , the raveges of Time on the brain & body ! , well after all of yesterdays cooking I am ready for the task today, but it will be simple bacon wrapped tenderloin with a double baked spud No fuss , simple straight fwd, easy cooking, fire up the grill & bingo before you know is time to wash dished hahahahaha .
I will be leaving work early Monday the gransons playing piano at the school Monday evening, so I will be there for the world premier of his "Seasons "4 part solo , a bit to classical for me , he needs to JAZZ it up a little , not that i dont like classical , but Beethovenn he isnt , he needs to stick to the simple stuff till his hands get bigger to cover a bigger spread , I dont need to work about covering a wide spread, I play like I type, Index finger of each hand, thats it , the arms get a workout but the fingers never leave the palm of my hand behind hahahaha
Nuber 2 Grandson is having a bit of a constapation problem, well with the family history of being Full of $hit he has taken it to a new level, pore little guy , he went to the doctors had 6 tubes of blood drawn & an x ray of the gut & got his first "Interal " exam , my daugher said the look on his fase was a kodak moment , "WHAT WAS THAT" was his utterence hahahahaha well at 10 years old I am sure he will be getting a lot more of the dredded cold finger when he starts to have prostrate exams , dammm I hate that trip to the doctors evey August , word to the wise , find a doctore with small T H I N but LONG fingers , trust me I did have a doc with short thick fingers , Glad he retired ! hahahahaha
We had a cool week here in da burgh 40's at night 60's in the day a little frost one night so it is way to soon to put in the tomato plants, I dont thing I am going to plant anythis year, My chive plants are almost knee high all ready & the oregano came back very nice but the rosemary didnt do well over the winter, the rose bush surived & the raspberrys are sending out shoots & green leaves, but thew dammmmmmmmmmm maple trees, & pine trees, why did I ever plant them????? pine cones & whirrle birds all over the place , next liftime FRUIT TREES , then I can make a pie , the dammm pine trees just make a mess 7 the maples do make a lot of shade , but the seeds they drop are all over the place, if I didnt keep up with them I would have a maple forest instead of a lawn............ dammmmmmm I messed that up 30 years ago, I should have just let them all grow & then I wouldnt be needing to have the wife cut the grass hahahahaha , , trees all over the place, no grass to cut & no leaves to rake , just let Nature take care of her self BUT NO we got to cut down the trees, plant grass water it feed it & cut it , maybe I should move to the beach, NO grass just sand !!!
I have been busy in my taste testing lab looking for the Morning cigar & thought I might have a new starter to replac the Don Carlos #3 , but after the third morning withn the Olivia "V" lancero I went back to the DC3, still looking , a life long Quest , its the journey not the destination .... & to complacate the taste buds this morning I have over looked the Sunday morning POT of KONA for a new blend from our new coffee roaster in new brighton Pa , it is called the Black & Gold City of Champions blend , so it has been quite a few years since Pittsburgh had a winning baseball team we di get the World Seriers, SuperBowl & Stanley Cup all at the same time well it is a mix of light & dark roast coffees all from the Americias, the little bit of Kona that is in the blend is part of the light roast mixture & the dark roast Brazillian Santos gives it the zip that i enjoy from American coffees, not that African or Asian coffees are bad, I dont think I have ever had BAD coffee , a lot of them have been better than others & I have found my share of pots that would be better used to put out the campfire but all in all coffee is like a cigar , I would rather share a bad smoke with a good friend than a FINE cigar with some one who id just a total @$$hole , so I seam to smoke alone most of the time hahahahaha yea my "friends" think the same way I do , so I guess they world rather smoke alnone hahahahahahaha
looks like the day will be cool & a bit wet, so I will be headed out to the Qtr.Deck soon & fire up a DC3 & maybe go for a little walk this afternoon , & fill the country side with sweet cigar smoke !! Enjoy, Vince

Re: Sunday Morning Smoke

Well, well, well, who'da thunk it? Vince has his own line of boil in bag frozen foods. Forget 30 Minute Meals, Vince has 30 Meals In A Minute!!! Yeah, baby!!! The more life goes on, and the more I get to know Vince, the more I think Vince is, . . .

hmmmmmmmmm, . . .

like, someone God gave to the 20th and 21st Century so we would remember all the great recipes, and all that's good about life itself. Talk about Cultural Icons, John Wayne, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, they got nothin' on Vince, that's for sure. As for trees on the property, yeah, what's all this stuff about people have to have lawns? There are even people who get their homes ticketed for trying to go natural with their yards. I have to admit, there are people who let their yards get completely out of hand, but why does everyone have to have a nice kelly green square patch of grass to call "my property?" Only in America.

Speaking of only in America, my ship, that big check is finally going to be on the way soon, so I can finish getting set up in my new life and begin to take over my father's. Can you imagine that, $30,000+ for LOSING my house? Only in America. Don't come knocking, the money's already gone. As a matter of fact, I won't be able to do everything I wanted to, at least right away to this apartment, because an awful lot of pay back has to be rendered to a bunch of people. I've borrowed heavily to get to this point, so the little left over will be a cushion to help me continue working part time until I get my father's life in hand, get his farm sold, and moved up here with me.

What a country. Well, I'm glad to be here, because at least we have a system in place to help and protect most people in dire straits. Nothing like having the kind of family and best friends that I do, as well. The Lord has blessed me immensely. As Kinky Friedman told Uncle Bill recently, "at least we have a correctable nation." That's right, and at least we have a nation where you can lose your house, and have your lawyer get the surplus monies back for you.

That's right, folks, if you lose your home to foreclosure, don't just let the new buyer run you out of there in two shakes of a lamb's tail. Laws vary from state to state on how long you can stay while you look for other digs, and also protect you from harassment. Get yourself a lawyer, and make sure he or she is not a friend of the county you live in, or anyone associated with your property. Get an out of town sharpie, or as Vincent Pastore said in one of the Gotti movies, "If I need a lawyer, I'm gettin' me a Jew lawyer." You'd better believe it, buddy, and it doesn't hurt if the head of the firm is an Italian lawyer. Uh oh, Sharpton's National Action Network is sure to complain about this thread, haw, haw, hawwwwwwwww!!!

After a few days of dreary skies, it looks as though the sun is bursting out. As long as it doesn't get too hot, I'm all for it. I love natural light, and my apartment gets plenty, so much that I never need to turn on a light until well in to the evening, even on a dark day. It's time to start watching the people going in and out of the Brazilian restaurant across the street, especially the girls, while I drink my first coffee of the day.

Have a great one, everybody. God bless you all, God bless America, and remember, Willie Mays will be 77 on Tuesday. Talk about Cultural Icons, and rightfully so.

DAYUM, I'M AN OLD DUDE!!!

Re: Sunday Morning Smoke

Well Vince, the asthma's in check as long as I have one dose of Advair per day on average, and for a long time that's been the case. As for being any where in New Jersey vs. The Keystone State, allow me to hark back to the words of W.C. Fields, echoed by Ronald Wilson Reagan from his hospital bed, many years later, . . .

"on the whole, I'd rather be in Philadelphia." In this case, I guess it's Da Burgh. No offense intended to Jersey, love ya, outta here before I get my ass kicked.

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOSH!!! (Bloof hits a secret compartment on his ring, and just like The Flash, a costume flips out of the ring, expands on contact with the air, and after donning it, Bloof escapes by running, just like his comic book hero The Flash, right through the wall, narrowly escaping the clutches of over 2,500 mad New Jerseyites, led by The Indomitable . . .

KELVIN THE MAGNIFICENT!!!)
