I've been watching that "local girl from Rochester HS" develop for the past couple of years or so. Her name has been bandied about as the heir apparent in American women's sprinting, and she has taken every step toward doing so in the past couple of years. Brilliant run, despite being technically unsound. All heart, she'll go far, many Olympics in her future.

Good afternoon, Vince and others!!! Had some great coffee myself this morning in Ye Olde Freedome Presse. It was a blend of about 60% Rwanda Masaka and 40% Indian Mysore, both from our good friend, Castle Crest.

Last night, for the final night of track and field in the Athens Olympics, I selected a fine Cuban cigar, a 4 13/16x50 Ramon Allones. The more I smoke them, the more I am inclined to echo the sentiment that there is simply no cigar like a fine Cuban cigar and this was no exception.

I lit this cigar at 2121 hours last night, and for the next 50 minutes a veritable symphony of flavors played on my palate. It was a cigar with a perfect draw, beautifully thick, rich smoke, and bold flavors of powdery lavender, nectar, earth and cream dancing all over my mouth for the duration. It was a great preview to a full moon's walk to and from the supermarket, the kind of cigar and night you remember fondly, and for a long, long time.

Here it is 5:15 pm & I am just getting to post my Sunday Morning smoke, , well better late than never, we had a nice breakfast of bacon & eggs, & then I took what was left in the Freedom Press pot to the Qtr.Deck & a Nate Sherman Lonsdale , I dont know what line it is from , it has been in the humi a few years, all I know it was a red over gray band , nice smoke lasted just over an hour, smooth & mellow, but I think the few years in the humi had some thing to do with that, I have a Fonseca calling my name as I type, the Osa Bucco I made for supper was great & the little bit of Zin that was left over from the cooking & the meal will go down with the Fonseca just fine ! Enjoy, Vince

I've got an idea for you, Vince. Since your recipes always get me salivating, since you seem to be a master of hospitality, and since you're looking for something to do in life besides just sit back and enjoy being retired, how about a . . .

Bed and Breakfast??? With a cigar lounge???

Just a thought.

So I'll make sure when I'm checking out at the front desk that your wife is on her break, and you're there instead.

From The Qtr.Deck

Started the day without my Don Carlos #3, I had a Monte corona with a Brazil Santos made in my Freedom Press pot, later in the day I was forced to smoke a Trinadad with a glass of red wine (just to finish the bottle)from the prime rib dinner, later tonight I have a Padron Anniv. 1926 torp & made a little more coffee . Enjoy, Vince

Ahhh, here we are again, stopped for a sip of coffee after breakfast this morning & a cigar , a Don Carlos #3 as per usual for my morning cigar , I have a piece of Veal defrosting ready to make a veal stew on this chilly wet Pittsburgh morning , a little bit of onions & peppers some stock & the veal serve it on some noodles or maybe rice , with a fine glass of wine this should be a good day for a cigar & food. Enjoy, Vince

went from a 62 inch waist to a 54 in 6 months, from a 6x shirt to a 3x & from HUGE gourmet meals at all times of the day to a simple diet of ONE Egg at Breakfast, no toast or home frys, one slice of bacon or one link of sausage , lunch was a 2 ounce serving of cottage cheese & 2 ounces of apple sauce, supper will be veal stewover ziti noodles, before I go to bed I will have a small glas of tomatoe juice , now I drink water & coffee all day long, decafe after 5 pm, & a cigar when ever I can find the time, I did get a good chunk of the monte smoked before I got a phone call, so I think it is history now, I hate to relight a a cigar shorter than 2 inches, just not woth the time, its time for a fresh Sosa after the food tonight , I have a Maduro Masterpiece for the ride tonight ! Enjoy, Vince
