Ted's Connecticut:
This is a pretty decent cigar.  Smooth, creamy, sort of milk chocolate without the overbearing sweetness.  Nice and light tobacco for the morning.  The burn is damned near perfect and the draw is just right. I'd recommend this.

Very nice smoke: Psyko Seven in natural

I have no complaints about this stick.  When I first lit it up, I was like "I'm buying a box!".  Of course then reality sets in and you realize that you can't just go buying boxes of everything that's pretty good.

It starts of pretty creamy and gives you this very sweet wood flavor.  The flavor then develops and adds something which may remind you of roasted peanuts.  There's no spice flavoring or 'heat'.  Also there's no true strength.  I'd put strength at mild-medium.

Burns with no issues and the construction is flawless.

Overall, I definitely like this stick and will be on the look out for deals at my B&M or simply keep buying 2 or three every now and then. Going into my rotation.

So...
Rest time for the palate is over.  And I'd like to make all aware that, it works.  Everything tasted better, richer, fuller and better.  Hmm, there's somethin' wrong there, I can feel it. Anyways.. my palate is cured.

The Cohiba Red Dot in Robusto.

Construction is just excellent.  No issues, no complaints I loved everything about how it behaved throughout.  They did a great job.

Flavors are simple yet so pronounced that it feels like a complex stick.  It's not.  You get the earthiness (very deep), woodiness, slight natural sweetness and a bit of pepper - that's it. No crazy off the wall flavors going on here.  It's just damned good tobacco.

The mouth feel is actually pretty dry. Good thing I always have water and sometimes a good touch of alcohol (This time Clynelish 14).  The most overused term when tasting the finer things in life - smooth, and I'm about to use it.  This smoke is so smooth even though the mouth feel is dry.  Sort of inexplicable.  Very nice.

Overall: I definitely liked the Cohiba Red Dot.  High price point but I'm tempted to say it's worth it.  I may end up picking up a few more at some point. Be like me - get some.

Just tried the CAO Cameroon Anniversary in Robusto.

Pretty tasty.  I don't think there's been a cigar I've tried yet that got me to think, "yumm... leather".  I'm not the type who thinks I understand the taste of leather in my mouth 'cause I've no experience with that.  The CAO Cameroon Anniversary however, made leather immediately pop into my mind.  If leather was sweet and edible, I feel as if this is exactly what it would taste like. Very odd. Just a feeling you get.  So now I understand why other folks pick that up in their reviews of certain cigars.

The construction was amazing.  Razor sharp burn the whole way.  Ash holds on at least an inch. Draw was a bit snug but not an issue at all. Smoke production was more than acceptable.

Definitely liked this cigar. Wouldn't call it complex or anything.. same flavor profile throughout with no changes except for a slight amount of spice during the last third. Dry mouth-feel so have some water or a beverage with you.  Smooth tasting, good tobacco. This is for folks that just want a mild-medium strength smoke with a great medium body flavor of earthy (leather)/sweetness and well cured tobacco without the feeling that the manufacturer tried to explode your taste buds. Simple and good.

More from the acceptably mad CEO
 
Many of you are reading this post while living in a city. And you can probably think of a ton of ways you’d like your city to be better—more affordable housing, better public transport, less pollution, more parks and green spaces, safer biking paths, a shorter commute... the list goes on!

Many cities around the world have already made a lot of progress in some of these areas—for instance, developing dashboards to measure and visualize traffic patterns, and building tools that let residents instantly evaluate and provide feedback on city services. But a lot of urban challenges are interrelated—for example, availability of transportation affects where people choose to live, which affects housing prices, which affects quality of life. So it helps to start from first principles and get a big-picture view of the many factors that affect city life. Then, you can develop the technologies and partnerships you need to make a difference.

So I’m very excited about +Sidewalk Labs​, a new company we’ve announced today. (The press release is at www.sidewalkinc.com if you want to read more).  Sidewalk will focus on improving city life for everyone by developing and incubating urban technologies to address issues like cost of living, efficient transportation and energy usage. The company will be led by Dan Doctoroff, former CEO of Bloomberg and Deputy Mayor of Economic Development and Rebuilding for the City of New York. Every time I talk with Dan I feel an amazing sense of opportunity because of all the ways technology can help transform cities to be more livable, flexible and vibrant.  I want to thank +Adrian who helped to bring Dan on board.

While this is a relatively modest investment and very different from Google's core business, it’s an area where I hope we can really improve people’s lives, similar to Google[x] and Calico. Making long-term, 10X bets like this is hard for most companies to do, but Sergey and I have always believed that it’s important. And as more and more people around the world live, work and settle in cities, the opportunities for improving our urban environments are endless. Now it’s time to hit the streets and get to work!
We're on the brink of a historic period for cities around the world. By 2050, the population in cities will double, intensifying existing socioeconomic, public health and environmental problems. At the same time, innovations in technology can be used to design communities that are more efficient ...

Read the article.
Then focus on this part: "of the 10,000 inmates jailed at Rikers, about 1,500 have been there for at least a year without being convicted of a crime."
And ask yourself how this could be legal.

Probably the best restaurant in the entire area. The food is usually prepared very well and the ambiance is well thought out. One star is subtracted because for some reason they haven't quite gotten the spacing between courses down yet. You can basically count on appetizers, main courses and desserts being about 4 minutes apart or less. I've literally had to send main courses back so they could wait until we had sufficient time to enjoy the appetizer.

This is an excellent hotel. The restaurant is a touch on the pricey side but can be considered worth it. So why didn't I give it all "excellents"? - the tap water smells a bit funky. Is that all throughout the city or just in this hotel? I have no idea... but it left a lasting impression.

Great view of the Jet d'Eau and about a 5 minute walk out to where it is so you can get up close and personal with it. You'll catch a lot of nice pics of swans and ducks in the lake if you're there at the right time.

Just did a home purchase through RoundPoint. The good: They are definitely capable of getting your loan done under 30 days. They give great rates.. and I mean really great. So far, they still seem like a legitimate company and I haven't seen anything that would seem like they're trying to pull a fast one. During the initial phases the loan officer is extremely reachable and personable..asks all the right questions and gives detailed answers. The bad: Once you get past the pre-qual with your loan officer, everything seems to be on a conveyor belt system. There seems to be very little true communication between their own departments and things not falling into the cookie cutter aspect of their loan process might get missed. You'll find yourself waiting for days on something which seems to be sitting on someone's desk (laptop). Nothing will get done until you call. Once you call.. it seems they act very quickly. But why should you have to call? Overall: Keeping in the back of your mind that a home is something most people pay on for 30 years, you'll find the stress of dealing with RoundPoint not so high after realizing you just got a great rate. So from a financial perspective.. it's a winner. If you can't live without the comfort of the loan company being extremely hands-on and communicative at every single step of the way, then head elsewhere until RoundPoint gets better at this. I would like to make mention however of the loan processor Laura Stauffer on the RoundPoint team who seemed to work amazingly quick, was responsive and understood that she should actually care. She made up for the seemingly cold inner workings of this mortgage company by quite a bit. So four stars because I'm more focused on the money saving aspects of the company and I did get my closing in less than 30 days.

This is a pretty good experience. Seeing the busy nature of the facade of this cathedral makes for a lot of wonder. The inside of this thing is not mind-blowing but it is still pretty nice. If you don't have much time then just order your tickets online so that when you get there you have the convenience of using a special gate at a designated time which allows you access immediately. The line without a pre-ordered ticket is pretty long starting very early. Even though the construction takes away from the experience, you still wont be sorry. All that said.. from what I've seen of other written reviews, this cathedral is overrated but if you're in Barcelona anyways.. you should take a look.

Great views of the city and the sea. A bit difficult getting up there to park, but unlike what most people say - the walk from the lowest parking lot is not bad at all. No problem and well worth the views. Inside, I actually got a chance to see a service in action and tourists were funneled through just to have a glimpse and take pics of the inside.. which ain't bad. If you're in Marseille.. go there. No question.
