    Default Reading the leafs...

    So last night we enjoyed one of the Cigars Filix sent up a long time ago (Apparently 5 years ago Chilo and I deduced)

    It was discovered in a ziplock bag in a deep dark corner of a drawer. Looks like it was shuffled from the incoming mail all those years ago, to probably the living room hutch, then to the bedroom dresser drawer top , then shuffled in a drawer and then unceremoniously buried under stuff over time.

    It was dry, but not cracked and I was told by another cigar fellow that as long as all the oils had not leeched out (Brown stain on the cellophane wrapping) it should rehydrate quite well. There were 3 sticks.

    So 2 weeks ago we folded up some paper towl to a 1/2 " square zipped up the ziplock, and waited 2 weeks.

    Last night we took one out and gave it a try..

    It worked out OK.. While it did not smell like a fresh out of the box cigar (Tobaco smell was weaker) it was not bitter and held together quite well.



    While Chilo and I enjoyed this one she told me of her 3 Aunts - On her father's side. Apparently they were considered Bruha's . Not because of physical appearance or their demeanour, but because all 3 practices some sort of "readings".

    One did Cards and the other two read the burnings of Cigars. Apparently they would puff through 4 to 6 Cigars a day. They never showed Chilo how to do any readings even though she asked, they actually refused to tell her future for some reason that they never revealed to her.

    But the readings they did for her sister turned out to be quite accurate.

    The ticket is bought for Chilo for mid October and she will see if she can bring the legal linit of cigars back at that time - Now I need to scour ebay for a right proper humidor..

    What is the legal limit number for Canada? Looks like 100 in the USA.

    I didn't know there was a legal limit for the U.S. Guess I should look a little closer, but to date I have only brought 60 or so back.

    Bill ~ as for a humidor, I'm sure there are people offering some on e-bay. I had someone suggest to me a company called Cuban Crafters, and ended up buying this humidor myself. http://www.cubancrafters.com/cuban-c...or-150-cigars/ I've been very pleased with it.

    BTW speaking of Felix, has anyone spoken with him lately? I sent him some money for a box of cigars quite a while back and haven't heard from him nor seen the cigars.

    For Canada it is 50.

    At most we would have 50 - so the ones I am looking at are like this..

    http://www.ebay.ca/itm/WHITETAIL-I-M...item462681246c

    There are cheaper ones but no dial outside. For the amount that we would use it I think an outside dial is important to keep what is in there just right..

    Just had a funny thought - We are currently heat / humidity cycle testing a new camera at 60C and 85% humidity for 98 hours... I could drop a stick or two in there
