I used to subscribe to CA, I enjoyed their cigar coverage. They recently changed their format, changing the focus from cigars with secondary focus on the "high life", to primary focus on the "high life" and minor treatment to cigars. As much as I would like to hop into the custom lear, jet over to Switzerland to check on my handmade watch for which I am paying a mere 100k, and pick up several boxes to Habanos to tide me over till my next trip to London to check on my castle waiting to trip on over to St. Andrews for a few rounds of golf when I can pick up the next few boxes of Habanos to replace those that I just smoked.

My reality is hopping into the Grand Am, hoping against hope that I have enough gas to get to the local Smokers Outlet where I take the money that I have budgeted for lunch for the week and buy an Ashton VGS or other expensive premium (i.e. over 10/stick, just one mind you, and a couple of Padron 2000's or other tasty but inexpensive smokes to get me though the week, when I do it all over again.

However, back to the point, since they have switched over to this alternate universe that I am not a part of, I have relied soley on the internet for my information. I have found this board an invaluable source, but I am an old fashioned kinda guy. I looked forward to my bi monthly issue of CA, it was nice to get something other than bills in the mail and the price was reasonable. I had a ready reference and I was able to pass it on to my friends when I had completed it. Sharing the wealth if you will. Now, I no longer induldge that pleasure and come back full circle to the original question: where do you folks get your cigar info besides the boards, is there a magazine that is reasonably priced that actually has cigar talk as its primary focus or am I just faced with a future of bi monthly reminders that the spoon in my mouth remains tin foil instead of gold and my chariot remains a pumpkin?

SMOKE magazine is pretty good......comes out quarterly. At least, they remain true to their roots!

WOW..........a lawyer in a Grand AM.................I own a Grand Am........and I'm not a lawyer.......what's this world comming to?????????

I get my info from news groups, CW and other boards. Find a few people that like smokes that I like, then find what other cigars they have tried. Works for me.

By the way, you don't have electrical problems with your Grand AM also, do you?

The voices in my head are pretty helpful. Usually.


This calls for a very special blend of psychology and extreme violence.

BikerJoe, yes, an attorney in a Grand Am, we don't all drive BMW's and Mercedes. The GA has a sensor out so it always shows that the antifreeze needs filling. It was replaced once under warranty and failed again after warranty, never got it fixed again. Other than that no problems.

Thanks to all who responded, I kind of thought that it would be the case. Had been thinking about Smoke Magazine, will check it out and continue to check in here!

MetsFan, I have listened to the voices in your head and they said come here in the first place, so I guess they were definately helpful!

That sounds like me except I jump in the Accord to visit the local smoke shop.

CW is my main source but I read Smoke (good info) and CA (although, I am not sure why).

Good to hear Faust. Just be careful of the one with the Canadian accent. I don't trust him.
