Good afternoon it is Sunday , 2/2/2020 Groundhog day and a Happy Birthday to Ron King , where ever you are . , the morning started out with about an inch of snow but the temp is going up to 46 F today and most of it is all ready melted.
We started the day with a pot of Monsoon coffee , sausage ,eggs and asiago cheese bread toasted on the grill , and as always the Hunk O Beef is in the oven ,,,,, dammmmmm again , but a happy wife is a happy life, and I started the day with a gift from my brother Phil , No not the groundhog Phil, but my brother who is an only child Phil. hahaha , a ISOM Monte #2 ..... a great start to the day for sure. I have no idea what to have next , any sugestions ?
My 2018 escape is heading to the shop tonight , a recall on some Bullshit fuel problem , I hope what ever they do to fix it will not kill my gas mileage , im can average 26 MPG back and forth to work and running around town , over 30 on trips , how ever when I sit for an hour and a half with it just under 1000 Rpms , just to stay warm when smoking a cigar it drops off , WAY OFF , why do I sit in the car with a cigar you ask,,,, well its COLD outside and raining , I get an hour for lunch and 2 ,15 minute breaks at work during the day And I have a cigar instead of eating , witch takes all of 90 seconds to jam a beef stick down the gullet .... so I have time for a fine smoke . coffee and music, when the weather lets up I will be in a folding chair, behind the shop with my cigar coffee and music ..... no news from the grandsons, , time to open a few humidors and figure out whats next. .. What are you cooking drinking and smoking today ? Enjoy, Vince

Good afternoon it is Sunday feb9,2020a warm wet day here in da Burgh, we had our first real snow of the year , about 5.5 inches and its almost all melted the weather man said rain tonight , so by morning with the temps in the 40s look out for flooding of some of the roads .Its been a busy week lots of time at work and busy at home .
we started the day with a pot of Papa new Ginny and a grilled english muffin , swiss cheese, bacon and egg,,,,, after breakfast , the sun was out and the winds were low and the sky was blue so we jumped in the car , I grabbed a Nate Sherman corona and we went for a cigar ride , 90 miles later we got home and I started our Sunday Supper , saffron rice, and grilled pork chops , during our ride we stopped at a car lot to look at the new Sabaru Cross Trec our grandson is buying , he has had the same car for 6 years , it was old when he got it , so it was time for new wheels ,,,, he was here last night for a raid on my humidor and give us the news about the 2019 he is getting, a great price as the 2020s are on the lot. .
I was digging in the humidor and found a very old Don Tomas classico toro , getting ready to set fire to it now . a cup of italian roast green Mountain coffee is cooling as I type ,,,, so what are you drinking smoking and cooking today? enjoy Vince

Good afternoon it is sunday 16 feb,2020. a cool somewhat snowy day here in the burgh, we had the coldest night of the winter season so far hitting a chilllllly 9 f with 20 mph wind , a weeee bit uncomfortable , but it is supposed to be in the 50s by tuesday ..... breakfast was french toast with a pot of very weak coffee , a blend of 4 central american coffees but not enough to make a 12 cup pot , it might have been better with an 8 cup pot. this mornings cigar was a Nino Vasquwz lonsdale .... not great, not bad, just a cigar for the masses cheep , average smoke with no bad aspects of a cheep cigar , good burn average taste , nothing to complain about nothing to praise it about. I dont know what I will smoke next.
the hunk o beef is in the oven AGAIN.......
I have one political comment ....... IT SUCKS .... end of rant



OH one more, here in Pa the state house has introduced a bill to ban all public smoking including cigar shops and cigar bars , all I can say is if it passes I will be a law breaker , I enjoy sitting with friends and stangers smoking cigars sipping coffee and scotch . I will smoke on the street , let me get arrested ..... it will be a trip to the federal level of the rights of a FREE man in a free country ......

grandsons both got hair cuts , now looking like human ,not cave men hahahaha ,, Im due for a trim myself.
my car will get its 25000 mile check up this friday , , just 18 months since I got it with just over 200 miles on the clock ,,, I still like my old escape better than my new one ... just dont know why , but its nothing I can put my finger on .

so what are you smoking , eating and drinking today

enjoy Vince

Good morning it is Sunday 2/23/2020 a bright sunny but cool day here in da Burgh, Breakfast was a plate of French toast made with a sweet bread from a local bakery , the coffee was from a few south american growers and the mix didnt turn out all that bad or all that great. .....
I was told by the boss that we are having a guest today for our Sunday Meal , and its not a hunk O beef today , I am making a Phillo dough wrapped piece of cod with spincih and feta cheese with a little wedge of Lime , ,,,, no lemons in the store so I settled for the lime . Who knows it might be good , but I do like it in my Iced tea over lemon. Sort of a Greek infulence on todays meal , fish and cheese is not one of my goto recipes but this works just fine.

Took my car in for its 25K check up , a 49.95 plus tax came to 52.87 , I give the young lady 63.00 and she slides the 3 bucks back and tills me the 3 twentys will cover the cost , I said yes I know but if you keep the 3 bucks you just give me back 10.13 , you dont have to count out all the singles and I dont have a ton of ones in my money clip , she didnt understand and put it in the adding machine 3 times saying it just didnt seam right , not only is it right it is correct .... But I cant do math in my head and that just dosent make sence to me to pay so much more than what the bill is, I assured her it was OK , just look at the adding machine and it will be Ok , she had to check with the Manager to see if it was OK ...... ahhhh todays schools have failed us for sure , am I the only one who can do math in my head , so simple 87 and 13 are 100 , so she gave me a ten and 13 cents and wanted to give me back my 3 singles , I dont think she was the sharpest knife in the kitchen at all ,
have any of you ever had a problem getting change ?

Today is My Aunt Mary Ann 's 90th birthday , she is living in a nursing home , what do you get her beside a card? well we thought a room freshner would be just fine to cover up the aroma of old people , you know , urine and ben gay , with a little shit to cover it all . ..... almost like a baby, but no powder , that has been replaced with the ben gay . , the cake is at
2 and the party is over at 3:30 , no reason to add any more stress to the old folks and staff.

this mornings cigar was a 12 year old Avo , that surfaced in a humidor when I unloaded it to check the contents this past Friday ,,, a very smooooooth velvet like smoke that went well with the cup of Kona . we went to home depot and picked up a new kitchen faucet and Garbage disposal ,,,, then to the Do it best hardware store to get a self closing toilet seat for the wifes bathroom ,,,, she didnt like the ones at home depot ...... So now I have a few more jobs on my honey do list , I think I will call a plumber to dive under the kitchen sink, I can take on the 2 bolts of the seat all by my self hahahahaha

Time for a short walk and a cigar , its to nice not to be outside today its up to 48 F and climbing so a quick spin around the block or maybe 2 laps hahahaha a cup of coffee and a cigar to be figured out when I open the humidor ,
What are you cooking drinking and smoking today ? Enjoy, Vince
