About me

I've lived in California my whole life. I have been the VP of a sales company, owned my own business, worked for the JBL, built telescope domes that went to Peru, worked on F14, 15 and 18 Radar systems, and now run a calibration lab for tools used to survey oil wells. I have four great grandchildren too.

I like fishing and auto racing. I have a small collection of Datsun Z cars, one is an SCCA race car. 

I like cigars with Brazilian tobacco.

My wife in involved in breeding and showing dogs, Boston Terriers. 

I get to herf at Doc's Herf Shack, it's a lot of fun too.

Perdomo Lot 23 Maduro, Robusto

Gran Habano Azteca Maduro, Aguila (Torpedo)

Pinar del Rio Oscuro 2007 (original blend), Churchill

This is a nice looking cigar. The wrapper is medium brown in color and has a oily sheen. The band is colorful but not overdone. The draw is really bad...

Capadura 898 Series Maduro, Robusto

This is a well constructed cigar and burned good. The filler is too dominate for me and it was all black pepper from end to end. It was worth a try bu...
