Excellent, dear lady! More than a century ago some Americans thought we should invade Cuba and make it an American state. They dodged a bullet.
I took a series of classes on cocktails and the history of drink. We were treated to a presentation by a shill for the Bacardi corporation and received a book on their illustrious history and travails with the rebels.
I’ve been a blue collar worker all of my life, never having made even $30,000 a year. Now, at 60, I have no savings or health insurance. I’m pretty sure I would be better off with Cuba’s healthcare even if I had to live on rice and beans. If I worked as a cigar roller I could smoke while I worked and take a couple home. Do they still have readers who entertain the rollers while they work? That’s how Samuel Gompers got his start.

I've read that even in Cuba the only guaranteed articles are in the factory stores. And I wonder about places like Holt's and Cigar International that feature 'overruns' or 'cosmetically blemished' cigars. Especially any that have the band saying "Dog Rocket" or "Cannon Fuse".

You can buy Cuban cigars in Canada and Mexico why not here? And nothing beats a good cigar (Macanudo Duke of Devon for me) after getting high.

We need to have a police force to protect us from the existing police force.

OMG. I'm gobsmacked, but also intrigued. I didn't see any trailers made from a pickup bed.

I caught norovirus from visiting friends whose toddler had just got over it. The virus can live for weeks apparently on surfaces. The parents and son both had a couple of days with some distress but my version consisted of several days of simultaneous vomiting and diarrhea. Fortunately my toilet was next to the bathtub so I was able to vomit into the tub while I shat in the commode. Children are just walking vectors of disease.

And by 'mentoring' I assume he means 'indoctrinating'.

I heard on NPR there is an estimated 50,000 Irish illegally in this country. Are they taking jobs we Americans wouldn't do? Professional drunk, potato digger, or Leprechaun trainer?
