    You deserved an answer. Cuban Cigars and Non-Cuban cigars. Part of the normalization with Cuba
    might have been opening the cigar market, but that was a stupid idea, because of the tons of

    Again, new GF owner, welcome, and I presume with the original controller?It will be interesting

    Well, I pulled the trigger and bought one, too. So far, no regrets. In fact, everything went

    poppets that would work right, so I had to buy the right posts for both kegs. That was an
    expensive mistake. ...
