For some reason I’m a sucker for cigar events (go figure!). I happened to notice that Sam Leccia was travelling with Jack Toraño, the marketing director for Toraño Family Cigar Co. who is distributing Leccia Tobacco’s new offerings. So Thursday evening they were doing an event at the CigarCigars stores in Colmar, PA. They couldn’t have the event at the store that’s 10 minutes…Continue

Monday evening was rainy. I actually thought there was a break in the showers long enough to take the dog for walk, but it turned out it was only long enough to get a cigar lit and get a little ways down the road before it started pouring again. I suppose if I had walked farther before it started pouring it would have been worse, as it was I ran the dog home and sat in the garage while I enjoyed my last …Continue

June 7, 2013 (Miami, Fla.) – In a recent expedition to Lake Nicaragua, which archaeologists feel was once a large bay alongside the Pacific Ocean, a discovery was made.

On the last day, in one of the deepest parts of the lake a cave was located with treasures of the mermaid.
Among these treasures was the Dubloon, a 7.25 x 56 Salomon. The name comes from the…Continue
