    Today for Christians in Greece is the celebration of Saint Minas (Menas) born in Egypt.
    He served in the Roman Cavalry,fought bravery and he promoted from a rider to an Officer,latter he became a Christian and disobey an order for Christians execution.He paid his devotion to Christ with a terrible death and became a Martyr.
    In Heraklion Crete at 1821 the Turks slaughter thousands of innocent people,among them some priests inside the altar of their temple. At 1826 they wanted to do the same to the Greeks who were in church for Holy Saturday [Lords Resurrection], they made a distraction with fire in the city and they surrounded the temple ready for massacre. Suddenly as a vision a man with white beard on a white horse show up,he drawn his sword and attack to them with momentum,the Turks caught by surprise and retreat.They feared so much from that miracle that latter although a Christian they show respect to him offering gifts to his temple. The Greeks learned about that incident when the divine was over and declare Minas as "Defender" of their city.

    Thanks to all the vets from me as well.
    And congrats to the newly weds. Best wishes. I've been married 24 years and I just want to say its been 7 of the happiest years of my life. :th1:


    70 degrees and sunny here today, I'm sitting out on the front porch drinking coffee and smoking a Don Tomas piramide cigar. I figured I'd get one in before the weather changes, things are supposed to be much more winter like here starting tomorrow. The weather girl was quite excited but we'll see.

    We haven't seen any yet. Supposed to be 19F tomorrow though. Chance of snow Wednesday, which is apparently pretty rare for this time of year around these parts.

    If we don't get some around here, I might be driving up to you. I promised the boss I'd show her snow for the first time.

    Cold and rainy here in Toronto. It's making me homesick for the ocean.

    Presbyterian in the Peterson bulldog with some McLaren Vale shiraz.

    I'm finding the Presbyterian is vastly improved after having dried in the jar a bit.

    Dark Flake in a Savinelli Virginia 603. Today took a stressful turn and I'm sure glad I have some of this Dark Flake sample from psquared left to temper my mood.

    Good evening, everyone. Only fifteen pages behind now, and it's on to my next smoke. Dunhill royal Yacht in my 2013 PSF POY, in honor of the newly weds. Here's to you MR. And MRS. Stick. I know I'm late, but reading through Saturdays posts. It's like it's happening right now. Puff on!

    A bit of an undetermined sample gifted me by rekamepip with a recent purchase in a thoroughly cleaned Pete 312 for full effect. Medium bodied, nutty with a little added zest. Smooth and clean burning. Very welcome after pasta and garlic Texas Toast.

    I'm thinking Anniversary Kake later, likely in a cob which seems to suit this blend well.
