Take a look in my humidor for what I'm hoping to sell, the age, and prices.  Buy $100 worth and I'll cover the shipping to continental US.  Otherwise I'll ship as cheap as I can, first class is usually between $4 and $7 depending on where it's going in the US and how heavy the package is.  I can ship to the GWN as well.  Thanks fellas.

HOT deals / Cigar King Deals
01/17/2023 06:45 PM
CigarKing occasionally does 15% off of everything on their site and I took advantage of that to nab a deal on an AF/Opus sampler which was supposed to have one Opus and 4 more unusual lower end AF sticks.  Somehow I ended up with 2 Opus sticks!  And three nice AF sticks (Untold Story, 858 Rosado, and Don Carlos double robusto) I'm looking forward to trying as well.  This was $64 before tax after the discount!  Pic is below.

I also decided to try out a couple of their Davidoff Secret Motherlode samplers.  I was always curious how good a deal these secret samplers are.  For about $100 before tax each here's what came in the regular Davidoff motherlode sampler and in the Davidoff Winston Churchill motherlode sampler.  I feel like it was a pretty good deal (average stick price around $15).  Now the geeks have an idea what's in these if you've ever been tempted to pull the trigger but were afraid to see if they tried to throw Griffins or something in there.   :lmao:

Welcome to the eighth annual Birthday Bomb Exchange! This will be a year long exchange to give all you generous geeks another excuse to nail another geek with a killer bomb for their birthday.

Who can participate:

If your name is here you're invited to the year long birthday party, if not, enjoy the show and there's always next year.

What needs to be in the bomb:

Cigars of course! The bomb should have a minimum total value of $25 as customarily determined around these parts (CI box prices, etc), should contain at least 2 cigars, and each cigar should have at least a 3.5 star rating (so no pineapple white owls...unless it's a gag that is thrown in over and above the $25 bomb). There's no minimum or maximum value on each cigar, just make sure they're not dog rockets. There are no upper limits on the bomb value or size, spank that birthday boy as hard as you want! If you want to include something other than cigars in your bomb you're welcome to do so, just please meet the $25 value in cigars first and foremost.

When will it start:

January 1, 2023

When will it end:

December 31, 2023

Anything Else?:

Yes. Please make sure to leave feedback for your birthday bomber and please make sure to post a picture of your opened gift on this thread so all of us sitting at the birthday party table can be wondering why it can't be OUR birthday. If you need any help with embedding a picture in the thread let me know.

Also, on the subject of feedback, if you fail to bomb your target (I'm not talking about being a little late, I'm talking not sending it at all/ignoring communication type of behavior), you will receive negative feedback from me...and I will keep notes so that flakes don't make it into future birthday bomb passes.  I will generally remind everyone a few weeks ahead of time that their target is coming up but please mark your calendars as well.

And as I mentioned in the sign-ups, I have used a random number generator to select a target of my own for this year.  Someone will have 2 craters where their mailbox used to be, who will it be?

With all that said, have fun everyone!

It's time for the annual sign-up for the Birthday Bomb Exchange!

How it works:

I assign a birthday bomber for each participant that will be responsible for making sure their target gets the birthday present we all want - CIGARS! Minimum $25 value, at least 2 cigars total, and all cigars at least 3.5 star ratings, no dog rockets. When you receive your cigars, post a photo in the 2023 Birthday Bomb Exchange thread that I will start once the sign-ups are over; it's like holding up your present so everyone can see what ya got!

Who can join:

I don't have a hard and fast rule/cut-off, so newer folks that are active are welcome, but I will be thinking about the likelihood that you're around for the next year and that you have a good track record around here. So if you're a 10 year lurker with no feedback and your first post is here I'm probably not going to be inclined to let you play. If you just signed up to CG last week I may encourage you to sign-up next year. Of course, if an active geek in good standing vouches for you exceptions can be made.

How to sign up:

Post here or PM me. If you haven't done this before send me your birthday month and day when you sign up. Sign-ups will be open until December 1,2022.

NEW WRINKLE ADDED!  I've decided to make this a little more interesting this year.  Everyone that participates will be given a number based on their birthday order in the calendar year and I will use a random number generator when setting things up to select one person to receive an extra birthday bomb from me!  So someone will get double bombed!

If you're curious about how this has gone down in past years, here's some links to past threads:

All,

I will be holding another small sale for those that would rather just buy something than dig through their stash to find something to part with or deal with crossing the border, etc.  As usual, I will cover the shipping cost.  Take a look in my humidor or just let me know how much you want to spend and I'll pick something out for you.  Sale will end by 10/24 so I can get everything boxed up and shipped to Nathan.

Hey geeks,

I'm coming up on my 25th wedding anniversary in June and was thinking of getting a box of something really special to commemorate the occasion and smoke one every year.  Could be a box of 5, 10, or 20, doesn't matter.  Ideas?  If price wasn't a factor, what is THAT cigar that you'd buy to celebrate something big like this?  I haven't smoked too many super premiums yet (even though I've hoarded some lol) so I'd like to hear what some favorites are around here.  GO!

Geeks,

I did the salt test on some of my digital hygrometers and it was eye opening, anything from 67% to 84% after 18 hours.  All of the Humi-Care ones were within 3% of each other which was encouraging but all were low by at least 5%.  Of course none of them can be calibrated and I didn't realize until now that the other brand I have are only accurate to +/-5%.  What have you all found to be a good calibratable digital hygrometer?  I looked around on Amazon a bit and what I saw all seemed to get mixed reviews on how well they actually calibrate, etc.  Here are a few that I found.  Thoughts?

Hey fellas, just thought I'd share my latest project with my BOTLs, a little side table for the couch.  Didn't quite get the effect I was going for in the middle, should've gone more random in the colors, but I like how the scattered pattern against the straight border turned out...

As I've done in years past, I'm running a sale for anyone who is interested in donating to nwb's Cigar for Troops but are too in love with their collection, don't have the time to pick something out and box it up (or maybe have been ill and can't), lives in the GWN and shipping is a pain, etc.

My humidor is set up for the ones I've set aside to sell.  Pick something out, or give me a budget and I'll pick something out.  Shipping to nwb will be on my dime and I'll send one combined package his way with my donations and everyone else that buys here.

11/14/2019 12:33 PM
It finally hit my neighborhood, 7 people shot, 2 in critical condition.  The school is about 2 miles from my house.  Shooter is in custody, 15-16 year old kid.  Thankful my kids attend a different school slightly closer.  Thankful for law enforcement and vigilant school safety practices that kept this from being any worse.  Praying for the critically injured and for the shooter to come to grips with what he has done.  I don't understand what makes a kid, or anyone, do something like this.

I'm working on my first project with saved bands.  Going to be a tray for the top of my ottoman for eating in front of the TV on one side and a checker/chess board on the other.

I'm using Mod Podge to glue the bands to the wood.  Should I mod podge on top of the bands and then urethane or can I just put urethane right on the bands?

Thoughts?

I made a previous order with them a few weeks ago and it all went fine.  They messed up the first shipment (didn't include the advertised freebies) but they made it right quickly.

Trades / Splits / Finger bags split?
03/09/2019 03:42 PM
I'm all out of 5 finger bags.  I see from other threads that bags of bags has the best prices, which is true, but the only order size is 1,000 bags.  I was thinking I'd be good with 50-100 so thought I'd see if anyone else wants more bags and wants to split this order with me.  Let me know.  Thanks.

Buy and Sell / Making Room Sale - Done
03/03/2019 09:30 PM
See my humidor for what I'm selling and prices.  Shipping to be added unless you buy me out or something.  Happy to ship things north of the border but the USPS has changed their ways and it'll need to be priority instead of first class.

Everything cared for with kid gloves, and for being an engineer my math isn't really the best... ;-)

HOT deals / Holts Padilla sale
02/22/2019 09:44 AM
I've worked my way through a lot of Padilla.  Their short robusto Reserva at $3 is well worth the coin if you like a medium habano.  Good smoke.  Avoid the corona...  vintage at $4 also a good value.  Anything outside their Reserva line has a big drop off in quality IMO.

Got some Yellow Rose and Tennessee Waltz for under $8/piece, seems to beat everyone else's price.  Use code "Rams" until the Super Bowl

So I've fallen victim to CigarFed's "factory direct" hype machine lately.  They keep pumping out these unique limited blends and I've watched them keep selling out, reminiscent of the Ezra Zion hype machine only not quite as bad, you can actually think about it for a week before you buy.

I've bought three varieties in the last month or so (Naughty List Maduro, Whipped Cream, and GreenGo) and am letting them rest.  I notice that there hasn't been much said on CigarFed's labels in general in the database.  I'm curious to hear if there are general opinions on reality versus the hype machine on their stuff.  Are the "factory direct boutique" blends just relabeled 2nds or are they really a unique cigar that is somewhat close to the claims of greatness they make?

And if you've tried any of the three I bought I'm curious to hear what you thought of those specifically...

Alcohol and Cigars / Giving scotch a go
01/06/2019 07:12 PM
I'm a late bloomer in the world of spirits but I've had a few scotch tasters lately and I've liked most of them.  I had a few BevMo gift cards saved up so I thought I'd sample a few different brands.  How'd I do in picking out some standards to try?  Any good recommendations for scotch beginners?

Welcome to the fourth annual Birthday Bomb Exchange!  This will be a year long exchange to give all you generous geeks another excuse to nail another geek with a killer bomb for their birthday.

Who can participate:

If your name is here you're invited to the year long birthday party, if not, enjoy the show and there's always next year.

What needs to be in the bomb:

Cigars of course! The bomb should have a minimum total value of $25 as customarily determined around these parts (CI box prices, etc), should contain at least 2 cigars, and each cigar should have at least a 3.5 star rating (so no pineapple white owls...unless it's a gag that is thrown in over and above the $25 bomb). There's no minimum or maximum value on each cigar, just make sure they're not dog rockets. There are no upper limits on the bomb value or size, spank that birthday boy as hard as you want! You may want to designate a particular birthday cigar similar to the new year smoke in the secret santa exchange, but it's not required. If you want to include something other than cigars in your bomb you're welcome to do so, just please meet the $25 value in cigars first and foremost.

When will it start:

January 1, 2019

When will it end:

December 31, 2019

Anything Else?:

Yes. Please make sure to leave feedback for your bday bomber and please make sure to post a picture of your opened gift on this thread so all of us sitting at the birthday party table can be wondering why it can't be OUR birthday.

Also, on the subject of feedback I should mention that last year we had our first party pooper in all the time I've run this.  Based on that experience, I think it's only fair that I warn you.  If you fail to bomb your target (I'm not talking about being a little late, I'm talking not sending it at all/ignoring communication type of behavior), you will receive negative feedback from the party host.  I will generally remind everyone a few weeks ahead of time that their target is coming up.

Alright, enough of the unpleasantries, geeks, let's keep making birthdays great again!

HOT deals / Free $10 at CI - DONE
12/13/2018 11:13 AM
If anyone wants a $10 coupon to CI send me a PM.  I'm not gonna use it, $10 minimum purchase, great if you're already going to make an order.

Geez what happened to this year?!  Enjoyed a Flatbed Black Maduro robusto last night.
#44
Alright geeks, let's see about keeping this good thing going, the more geeks we get the more year round fun we'll have!  So let's see who all wants to make birthdays mean more than just a yearly reminder that we're all getting older.

How does it work? I assign a birthday bomber for each participant that will be responsible for making sure their target gets the birthday present we all want - CIGARS! Minimum $25 value, at least 2 cigars total, and all cigars at least 3.5 star ratings, no dog rockets.

Who can join? I don't have a hard and fast rule but I will be thinking about the likelihood that you're around for the next year and that you have a good track record around here.

How do I sign up you ask?  Post here or PM me. If you haven't done this before send me your birthday month and day.  Sign-ups will be open until December 7,2018.

Trying to get a hold of him, he hasn't logged on since April.  Tried his email too.  If you know him please PM me.  Thanks.

Take a look at my humidor.  Quantities are approximate, prices are in there, and I'll add actual shipping cost.  If you buy to send to the troops I'll hold your purchase and send in one big box with my own donations by 10/31 and you won't pay shipping!  Happy shopping!

$188 for a box of 20.  Not cheap but worth every penny in my opinion.  Let me know if you want in, not many left so need to hear quickly if this is going to happen.
