I'm Nate. This is my blog. Dammit.
And maybe how, if someone's going to vandalize the Lincoln Memorial, that person can certainly do better than to toss a little green paint on it.
Sorry, it was all I had...
Cigar question:I've noticed that every once in awhile I'm smoking and I'll get a strong bad almost bitter taste. Does anyone know what causes this?I've had it happen with different premium brands. So I don't think its just one manufacture. The bad taste doesn't normally last very long and then I'm back to enjoying the smoke. I'd rather avoid it if I can, since I never know when it will happen. Could I be storing the cigars wrong?
What of bad are we talking about? Like stale beer bad?
My bet? Your cigars are too dry. If they burn fast, the taste gets bitter. Smoking in the breeze can have the same effect. Getting a cheap little box humidor for storage is a good idea, if you don't have one. Keep the little water reservoir filled up and your cigars will stay just moist enough to stay happy.
Nate,More like really and I mean really skunk ale with a hint of bitterness. But the thing is it doesn't last long.The too dry thing could be the answer. I live in an area with very low humidity. Today its about 37%. I only smoke outside and the wind blows 365 days a year here. I'm not sure how that affects things, unless its drying out a small section of the wrapper and that's causing the problem.Wednesday night after work I was enjoying a Cohiba and it happened again.
Catching the replay.A: Buffalo Trace BourbonT: My UZI Weighs a Ton (last one was an hour and 50 minute heavenly smoke)F: Smith and Wesson 3913 Lady Smith. Yeah, it says lady smith on it, but it's single stack and very concealable.Res - to go on the cheap use a Tupperware dish with florists foam lightly moistened, or a little bit of lightly misted silica (NOT clay) kitty litter. And you really should get a decent digital hygrometer to monitor the humidity in your tupperdor (about $20 on amazon).toothy
Congrats Vidad. If you don't get people calling in, you should start calling people. Start with people who threatened to call in and work your way down to Vox where we can all learn how cranky he is at whatever time in the middle of the night it is in his bunker while you're doing the show.
Wait 7? Congrats 6!!!!!!
Thank you. We're countering demographic decline from the ground up."If you don't get people calling in, you should start calling people."Excellent idea.
Congrats to the whole MaGoodn family (tribe? clan? baseball team?)!
And congrats to Jamie & Sarah, too, if they're around to see this.
We had a busy weekend and I just had the opportunity to listen to Friday's show. So, congratulations to Six, now Seven! Great news. Your discussion of the clay targets had me thinking about the game we played this weekend to get ready for dove season. I thought you guys might enjoy it also.A good friend of ours has 5 clay throwers, all stationed at various places to throw the "birds" up at different heights and angles. It's great fun and practice. The most fun, however, is what he calls "Annie Oakley". Everyone lines up at the shooter stations and it's up to the person running the controller to pick which station the clay pigeon comes from, the shooters have no clue.The 1st person has the opportunity to shoot. If he misses, the second person can put him out by breaking the target, BUT if he breaks it so that a piece is big enough that the 3rd guy can also break one of his pieces? The 3rd guy eliminates both in front of him. And so forth. Dollar a round pot. I saw a clay get credibly broken by a 4th shooter. Everyone was having a great time. I'd like to say it surprises me that no other fathers called in, but it doesn't. I have seen way too many men like the dude 7 described as stepping and fetching for his wife. It's stomach turning, to be sure, but it's the norm.
Nate, why can't I find your email address around here anywhere? Am I blind?
Sorry I missed the show. I would have loved to weigh in on the whole "servant leader" conversation.
@CunningDoveCall in this week and say your piece... I'd love to hear it. It's not like we stick to topics very well.
@Lana and WaterBoyThank you. I don't know how I could be more blessed, honestly.
