Nice picture OT
thanks!, a 'fast' lens (f2) and higher iso setting (I think it was 1600) always gives a better result than those nasty flashguns IMO (or do you guys call them strobes? - whichever, I don't like 'em!)
Finishing up some SH Exotique in a Comoy's Royal, with a couple of bottles of Red Hook.
It's good to be home.
f/2 at 1600 is a good combo, my Nikon 200 f/2 likes that in low light with the D3. Went to the upstairs pipe rack and was looking which pipe to have for the night when I thought I heard "Dance for 2 coins". I'm like where the hell did that come from and since I got a new hearing aid today and will be getting a second due to some experimentation the audiologist did I figured I thought I heard something when it happened again "Dance for 2 coins".
I looked around and when I turned my head I saw the Manduela had moved forward from where I had it perched so I picked it up and it said "Dance for 2 coins". I nearly dropped it and took some Davidoff Flake Medallions down only to find I'd somehow put away an empty container and the only coins I had ready to smoke were the Dunhill Deluxe Navy Rolls so I did a quick crumble and rub then filled the bowl, it was the best dance I've had in awhile............
My internet connection is wacky and moving slower than a snail on crutches. So, I'll be brief and hope later is better. Dunhill Deluxe Navy Rolls in a very early Ascorti straight New Dear KS billiard with a smooth shank. Braves and Brewers are on later.
It's stopped raining. There's even some patches of blue sky. Heading outside with my audience to enjoy some LEO in a Peterson Dracula 03. Just saw something I didn't believe could happen. Three women, one Czech, one Vietnamese and one Saskatchewan farm girl of Ukranian descent ALL together COOKING in one kitchen at the same time and LAUGHING.
The smells in there made me loosen my belt one notch in anticipation.
Evening all! Lost internet sometime this am and was down when I got out of bed. Just now came back up. Smoked a lot of tobak and was out and about. Now i'm smoking some McC 5110, Dark English Full. It ain't that full! It's ok...don't think it's all that much Froggy either. Just 4 pages behind, i'd better get at it.
Never heard that one before, but I do plan to use it.
I have not had a real busy week but I have been just plain LAZY. So, how lazy do you have to be to not get on the computer? Well have patience friends, my research is not yet complete and there is more grant money to be had so I will publish my findings later...much later. In the meantime I am smoking Haddo's in a Peterson Kinsale and drinking a Dutch Brothers Mocha from a recycled cup (I am all about the environment ya know).
OK...the truth is my folks left it to me with us all upset about the Russians putting a basketball in orbit and being all set to take over the world. I figure if I leave my kids with a few extra landfills....meh.
Agreed - no flash is always better
McClelland Christmas Blend 2012 in a Ser Jacopo Van Gogh Picta 2.
And since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I will fill in for jiminks.... Red Sox over the Tigers 6-1 top 4th.
Wow look at the S car go! You think that's slow, we've had it so slow it was like watching molasses flow uphill in January in Maine!
New 3Nuns in a Radice. Man this is one cool blend. No bite/burn at all and I puff hot. I will try it with Perique later. I can hardly wait to try it blended with Perique with some age. This is one delicious Va.. Aroma and taste are not too sweet, just right for me.

I think I rented that movie in my hotel late one night on my last business trip!!!! ;o)
Odyssey in a Peterson with lots of strong tea, working on my next tobacco order, I'm thinking Twist, maybe Rum, Black or Brown, definitely Ten Russians and Dunhill Nightcap, possibly FVF, I need some good strong stuff, what am I missing, I want to get bulk, I'm ordering from 4Noggins, oh Balkan flake, Rum Flake and Pirate Kake.
Safer too. Last time I used a flash I damn near went to jail.
Been smoking Altadis Burley Delight all day. A true Old Codger kinda thing. Summer will do that to ya.
steaks on grill
eat, smoke, sleep
then off to kansas city at 4 in the morning
Red Cake 5100 in my ebony Imp meer.
Classic Burley Kake in a DGE Chunky Elegancy.
