Good morning , it is Sunday 6/2/19 a cool wet day here in da Burgh ,,,,, will it ever stop raining ? my yard is a swamp the road was resurfaced last summer and the contractor installed some drainage ditches under the road on the edge of my yard between my home the the field that the BIG angus McStud used to roam , I have lived here over 45 years and never had any runoff in the yard , now I have a 6 foot wide ditch all cut by the water running into my yard , I called the contractor , and the state , no action or even a reply from anyone , I think it might be time for a letter to the news paper , the work on the road distroyed a peach tree and damaged a crab apple tree , buried my garlic patch , and removed all the crocus flowers on the property line , I was told by the contractor when the work was going on that it would be taken care of and like so many polittions the words were with out meaning . all they did was plant some grass , no stone was added now I have a breading ground for bugs and a pool of stagnent water . the contractor told me they can only go 6 feet from the road bed , after that its on me BULLSHIT , I didnt have a water problem until you fixed the road . I can fix it by going to the other side of the road and plug up the pipe , keep all the water on that side of the road and let it wash out that side keeping my yard high and dry ,,,,, nothing that a big beach ball cant fix ! Jam that big SOB in the pipe cover it with leaves and I am DONE and dry .....

Breakfast this morning was a grilled cresent roll with hot pepper cheese ,tomato ,bacon and eggs , coffee was a blend of 3 Africian coffees , about equial parts of all 3 I dont know what they were off hand , now I am working on a pot of Kona , it is Sunday and the morning smoke will be a DC3 , but it will not be outside on the back deck it will be in side the Qtr Deck as todays high will be a chilly 69 F with 10 to 15 MPH NW wind , its like an October day .
Today would be a good day for a hunk O beef but I have some pork chops defrosting and they will be going on the grill later today , I dont know what I will be making to go with them , Im sure I will be able to find some thing to make .


with all the rain we have had a lot of power outages as trees fall into the wires and some times bring down the poles , the ground is moving , and the hills are answering the call of gravity . All the rain even has the birds messed up , we had a white dove crash into the side of the house , it must have been a pet as it had a band on one leg , the bird must have been evading a redtail hawk that lives across the road , after a few minutes it got going again but it didnt go very high , just a few feet off the ground when it went over the fence and vanished into the trees .

Friday night was a fine show from my grandson Jonas ( #2 ) Internet radio show he had so many requests he extending his play time almost an extra hour before returning to the autoplay computer . he was getting requests from England and the USA its Victusradio.com at 10:30 eastern time , , he has a little bit of everything on his play list , you can click on a song and request he pays it and it will fall in line with all the requests , he reads the dedication and plays the song , just like a regular radio station .

its about time for me to get my pants on and get started with the day hahahaha


What are you cooking , smoking and drinking today ?
Enjoy, Vince

Good afternoon it is Sunday 6/9/19 a warm sunny day here in da Burgh , today my son in law turned 48 and we had a little suprise for him at the Eagles club in Ambridge Pa this morning , , by noon he was feeling the sweet bliss of Beer and Irish whisky ..... nothing like a morning BUZZZZ


breakfast was french toast and the coffee was a pot of Purivian Estate coffee , we left for the Eagles after that , so I didnt get my Kona or Don Carlos this morning , I just finished an Alec Bradly churchill , and will be grabbing something else soon , , I have the day off from cooking as the eagles had chicken and pasta so I lucked out on all fronts , I had planned on chicken and rice here at home but it will be on the menu for Monday , the chicken is defrosted so it will get cooked asap .


I am getting my 2 maple trees removed this comming week , I planted them when we moved here 40+ years ago one had a big spot of rot in the trunk and the boss is afraid the wind will drop it on the house so its comming down the other tree isnt as bad but since the guy will be here why come back in a year of 2 and do the second tree, so its comming down as well , sure going to miss the shade , but not the leaves in the fall and the seeds in the spring.... I was going to tap this this coming year ad see if we could get some syrup but they will be gone ....
Friday night my grandsons internet radio show went well you can listen in every friday at 10:30 eastern time to Victusradio.com , he has a request link on the home page and he plays a lot good stuff but way to much rap for me ,,,,, one is to many hahahaha



The older grandson has a new job with a soft ware company , I have no idea what he is doing but he understands it , and it came with a BIG pay raise , he had been at Bahama Breeze for A LONG TIME MAKING GREAT MONEY BUT THIS IS LESS HOURS LESS STRESS LESS (soirry about the caps I dont type well and I just looked up , must have hit the key by mistake ) and way more money , ,,, no nights or weekends .



not much else going on , I will be heading outside to fire up the next cigar , sip some coffee and watch the grass grow hahahaha What are you cookig drinking and smoking today ?
Enjoy, Vince

Good morn9ing , Happy Fathers day to all you fathers out there , a warm but wet Sunday here in da Burgh, my yard is a swamp so no grass cutting this week , rain is predicted every day this week .....

Since it is Fathersday with a great daughter and grandsons I recieved a Humidor Filled with 3 bottles of Scotch , a 12 YO Dewers blend, a 13YO Craigellachie Single malt , I had an open one on the shelf so I have a back up now , & Aberfeldie Single malt , a very nice selection of scotch all packed in a nice humidor . NOW I need more cigars to fill it hahahaha , I think the youngest grandson will get one of my smaller humidors to make space for this new larger box that should hold 75 + sticks . I have less than 20 in it now, , I seasoned it Friday , thought it was for my son in law , then My daughter tells me its MINE , I was suprised .......

I had the 2 Maple trees in my yard cut down & all the logs went to my nephew , he heats His home with a wood burner , so he needs a lot of wood, he lives a bit close to the end of the electric grid , he had power but no gas service , so its heat with oil or propane , or electric , but all are a bit expencive , and with 4 kids and a mother in law living with him , money is a bit tight But since he has a "FEW" achers of Hard wood forest Wood is FREE , Just cut , and wait a year or 3 , and burn it , so I had 2 45+ year old trees that needed to come down , and he came to get the wood, when were were loading his truck and trailer , I pulled some thing in my low back , it sounded like dominios falling , snap click click click , and Pain , dammmmmm it hurts , going to the chiropractor this week !

Since I am in a lot of pain I didnt cook breakfast , we had a Butter rum muffin from the bakery and coffee, I have a rack of ribs slow cooking and will be done about 4 PM . A green salad on the side and thats about all I want .


This Mornings coffee is from Papa New Genie a very nice medium roast with a nice flavor and good body , it feels good in your mouth , a solid body that almost feels thick ,,,, I like it a lot , I might make a second pot to go with Fathers day OPUS X #77 a Box pressed torpedo that ends up round at the head ..... That will be after lunch .
What are you cooking , smoking and drinking today ?

Good morning , it is Sunday 6/23/19 a very warm almost hot cloud free day here in da Burgh .... NO RAIN ... but the yard is still a swamp .
I have been to the chiropractor a few times in the last week , My low back is killing me pain like I cant believe , worse than the kidney stone ... I have a pain patch on and am using a TENS unit but I am powering through, gritting my teeth and moving on , but it is getting to me , I have taken a few Oxy at night to get to sleep but nothing in the day but aspirin ...... I have had a weeeeee dram or 2 just to help the day go by hahahaha , yep no different than any other day but the cigar count is down , in fact way down , I finished a cigar I started on friday , and I very seldom NOT finish a Masterpiece but this one was still 3/4 of the orginal so I saved it and finished it the next day and last night was the 4th of july fire works display & i had a Padron Princippe in the car , watching the Beaver County BIG BOOM ON THE RIVER , the fireworks are shot off from a barge at the mouth of the Beaver river where it Flows into the Ohio river , , a great show a big celebration and a fun time for 99.9 % of the people , I do know a few Vets who get out of the area for the fireworks ....


With the back hurting , I didnt cook today the wife made stuffed peppers , they are in the crock pot and should be ready some time about 4 PM , I didnt do breakfast ether , it was open the package of cheese danish and coffee , today it is a pot of Mocomba from Eathopia . I dont feel like doing much of anything today , hey just like every day hahaha , Havent opened a humidor to see what I will be smoking today , maybe later ,,,, just dont feel up to it , and if I cant enjoy it WHY should I fire up a great smoke and not enjoy it , today might just be a LOADED Phillys blunt just to ease the pain a bit .... gotta make a call hahahaha

what are you cooking smoking and drinking today ?

Enjoy, Vince

Good morning , it is Sunday 6/30/19 a warm sunny day here in da Burgh , the rain has not let up a bit untill today we had a heavy rain and wind again all week and last night a lot more trees were up rooted and power lines down , our power flickered a bit but came back on the cable how ever took a long time to come back , no TV , no Internet , no land line phone and the cell signal was only half of what I get normally . I have so much water in my yard I might stock it with fish next spring hahahah
. It has been hot and humid feels like swamps of Dagoba , for you non star wars fans it is the place Luke Skywalker went to be trained by Yoda the Jeteye Master ....
but back to earth .... it has been so uncomfortable outside , my back has not gotten any better dispite many trips to the chiropractor , and I will be going back on Tuesday ....... I have the Tens unit on and running now ....... and the cigar consumption is way down , just to uncomfortable to enjoy it , I could turn on the A/C in the Qtr.Deck or just go for a cigar ride and open the sun roof , but if you cant enjoy it WHY bother ..... its not like I need a cigar , I can go days at a time with out one , dont miss them when Im not smoking , so today I think I will be having a few sitting on the front porch at my grandsons ....


We are going to the open house for my grandsons new home today so I will not be cooking Sunday Supper again this week ,
I did make breakfast today bacon eggs and fresh cheese , coffee was Costa Rico estate medium dark roast and the Kona was made in the press pot last night , cold water 12 hours steep , kick your ass good , and the cigar of the day ,the week ,month and year Don Carlos #3 ....
almost time to get out to the open house , refill the coffee grab a few sticks and go ,
What are you smoking eating and drinking today , Enjoy, Vince

good morning , it is Sunday 7/7/19 a hot humid day here in da Burgh .RAIN is the word of the day week and month , I live about one mile south of the highest point in the county almost at the crest of the next hill over and I still have flooding in my yard, we had a steady stream coming down the driveway and off of the road , we had a pond in the yard that might be fishable hahahahah , small leak in the roof between the kitchen and living room , , we can see a small water stain on the ceiling and saw a few drips , it is right at the ridge vent so that will need a professional to fix it , Im not going to go on the roof myself , so it looks like the retirement fund will get a hit soon , after the trees were removed , the rain hits the house ina different way , what used to be covered with the trees is now open to the weather , all kinds of things are happening , the back deck isnt as cool since the sun hits the aluminum awning with out the trees in the way , and the wind is a bit brisk with out the trees blocking it , we wait all summer for the nice weather and still we wait , I sure hope the nice days show up soon .

I got a little more lazy if thats possable , and just made a pot of oatmeal for breakfast for the boss and myself BUT the BBQ Ribs are in the prossess of becoming a culinary masterpiece hahahaha , a few yams will also find the grill later today , this mornings coffee was a pot of Java Jam Pit for our local roaster in New Brighton Pa , Hallowed Grounds , I dont know if they have a web site , I never checked... just lazy hahahaha but I did remember to fire up a great cigar this morning , a Bahia Maduro , I have no idea whay I LOVE this smoke , it is CHEEP but the flavor hits me just right , yes I LOVE my Don Carlos cigars , but the cost is 3 times less with the Bahia and it is a different flavor profile , I can say I like them both .



Last Sunday my grandson had an open house for all to see his new home , he invited over 100 People hoping 50 would be there , he had it from 11 AM to 11PM to cover just about ant excuse people had about the time , and still only had about 20 show up over the day .


I will be heading to the Qtr.Deck for my next cigar , it is just way to humid to sit on the back deck . no KONA today the wife made a batch of Peach tea , and I will be sipping it on ice with what ever cigar I grab next .

What are you cooking smoking and drinking today , Enjoy, Vince

Good morning , it is Sunday 7/14/19 a wonderful day here in da Burgh , 2 days in a row with out rain , the yard is still a swamp , it will be a few more days of no rain low humidity and a nice breeze to dry it out , but the sky is blue with a few clouds and a nice breeze , I will be on the back deck enjoying the day with a mug of cold brew Kona and my buddie Don Carlos #3 , the brisket is on the grill and has been there for a few hours all ready , it will be ready about 4 .
Breakfast was just bacon and eggs , I had rye toast this morning , a big flavor change from the dark wheat bread I have been eating , , cant wait to get it on a ham and swiss with dark mustard .


the Back is still on the mend , a great deal of pain , NO MORE meds just the tens unit , and a long HOT shower , my skin fells water logged hahahaha

right now I want to get outside , fire up the DC#3 so what are you cooking and smoking today ? Enjoy, Vince
