Works at Kurzweil and Fukuyama were right. The human organism creates and fosters technology. Technology enables certain changes in human function. And the big feedback loop is picking up speed. Should get really interesting right about... tomorrow.

Starting to get the hang of rolling my own stogies.  
This particular entry has DR seco and Nica ligero filler with a Columbian binder and a Cameroon wrapper.  Pretty tasty.

First adventure in hand rolling.  Obviously my construction needs a little work (OK, a LOT of work).  But I'm really liking the blend so far.
Stand by for further developments.

Nica Rustica.  Another gem from the burgeoning Drew Estate portfolio.
The Nica is full-flavored and sports a casual construction -- pig-tail at the head, and loose flap at the foot.  
And packs a pretty good punch.
These are hard to find at my local B&M's, but you can usually track them down at the usual online suspects.

Nice cold weather afternoon smoke.  Drew Estate is quickly becoming my favorite cigar maker.

Introduction
I live in the hills of central Texas, and am daily fascinated by technology and how it affects and is affected by human information exchange.  We tend to mortal.
Bragging rights
Not long ago a man asked me, "Are you rich?". I answered, "No. But I don't worry about anything anymore. ". And I've come to conclude that's a really nice place to be.
