During the resurrection of the popularity of fine cigar smoking, I learned how to roll cigars and marketed a kit for rolling your own. I figured the big boys would think poorly of me, so I embraced the anticipated rejection by naming my business Cabron Industries. Cabron in Spanish is b@st@rd. Trying to lock up a related email name, adding the 99 was the only way it would be accepted. Kind of got used to it. My quote sums up my feeling about life, although I'm thinking of changing to be beer related. "Life is too short for commercial beer"?? Doesn't quite have the same irreverent ring.

Life is too short for cheap cigars

I am a commercial rated pilot and really like aviation history. I chose my handle because it represents the golden age of aviation so well. No avatar yet but it will be my logo when I get one.

Have you made the plunge into hop vines yet? Sounds like something that would be right up your alley.

Chessking, because I have done what could not be done. While playing Chess Titans I defeated the game by removing the oposing king from the board, and the went on to capture every remaining piece. Those of you who play know this is imposable. Checkmate concludes the game. Mind you this is a computer game and one assumes that it is familiar with the rules. I suppose it was a glich of some sort, but I have never repeated the event and in my desire to self promote, I have taken full credit. Prosit!
