Cigars and Mason Jars - Arturo Fuente’s Opus X

This was my first Opus X robusto and I was not disappointed. I received this cigar from Cigars Direct. Those of you that know me know that I usually put my sticks in the humidor for at least two months before smoking. Not this time! This cigar is arguably the rarest cigar in the world so I left the stick in the ziplock humie all Cigars arrive in from Cigars Direct for one week and sparked it up.
The construction was flawless. The light and draw was superb. Wood and leather with a hint of spice. I found the spice flavor diminished about half way leaving a warm rich woody-leather flavor that intensified as I smoked. I never had to relight and this one took me 75 mins to smoke. I enjoyed it with a glass of ice water.
I would give this cigar a solid 92 rating. It was one of the best I have ever smoked. The big question - is it worth the CO$T?  I would say yes. A man should treat himself sometimes and the Opus X was indeed a treat for me. It would make an awesome Fathers day or Birthday gift and the guys at Cigars Direct can hook you up with this and some other great gift ideas. Check that link out. After shopping all the online cigar stores, Cigars Direct is my favorite. Great smokes, fast delivery, perfect packaging...A+ service.

Army Sniper Sets New Record: 8120 Feet

Dayuuum what a shot...I mean two shots.
An army sniper has earned a place in military history by killing two Taliban machine gunners from more than a mile and a half away.
Craig Harrison’s record breaking shots felled the insurgents with consecutive bullets – even though they were 3,200ft beyond the official range of his rifle.
The Household Cavalry veteran’s kills from a distance of 8,120ft beat the previous record by 150ft.
He was using the British-built L115A3 Long Range Rifle, the Army’s most powerful sniper weapon.
. . . What might be more amazing is that Corporal Harrison survived a roadside bomb attack that broke both his arms with no affect to his accuracy. — GP

Alan Jackson May 22 concert in W.Va. to aid miners' families

Country music legend Alan Jackson will donate the profits from a performance in West Virginia to the families of the 29 men killed in the explosion at the Upper Big Branch mine.
Jackson will perform May 22 at the Charleston Civic Center, where ticket prices have been slashed to $20 for portions of the arena to encourage attendance, his publicist said Thursday in a news release.
Many vendors and suppliers have also cut their fees in a show of support for the families of the miners who died April 5 at the mine in Montcoal. Two other men were injured in the nation's worst coal mining disaster in 40 years.
Proceeds will go to the Montcoal Mining Disaster Fund, administered by the West Virginia Council of Churches.
The Rev. Dennis Sparks, executive director of the council, said he is thrilled that an entertainer who writes and sings about the working man is coming to the aid of the miners' families.
Jackson, a native of Newnan, Ga., has won 16 Country Music Association awards and was named Entertainer of the Year three times. His latest album is "Freight Train.''
"This is a very wonderful donation from Alan and, on behalf of our state, I'm honored for our miners, their families and the rescue workers,'' said Gov. Joe Manchin. "Alan is a world-famous entertainer who has never forgotten his small-town roots and the importance of family.''
Toxic gases are still keeping investigators out of the Upper Big Branch mine. State and federal officials say tests showing the presence of acetylene and ethylene, gases not normally found in an underground work environment, suggest a fire may be burning somewhere.
Richmond, Va.-based owner Massey Energy has already pumped 7 million cubic feet of nitrogen into the underground mine to suffocate any flames, but the atmosphere remains too dangerous for people to
My hats off to Alan Jackson.
