We have a new toy...

Isn't it great when you come home and have a package waiting for you.  Especially one that you weren't expecting for a couple more days.

It was like Christmas for me.  I couldn't get the package opened quick enough.  Before I knew it I had my new Flip MinoHD in my hot little hand.  Minutes later I'd gone through the quick setup and placed my new Flip on its' tripod and caught my kids being 'hams'.

I was amazed that right out of the box I could record a video, re-watch it on on the camera, take it downstairs and watch it on my big-screen.  And now I'm putting the video up on my blog.  Isn't technology great?

Although we have been thinking of getting a pocket-size camcorder for our upcoming trip to Mexico.  It was the confirmation of a twitter friend tattooedmommie that really helped me decide on getting a Flip.  Check out her blog at Me, Myself & Jonna.  Thanks Jonna.

So look for more vlogs/random videos in the coming days.

Who is Se7en and why does he love acigarsmoker.com so much?

DISCLAIMER: Some of my images show my contest entry displayed in public parades and on national monuments. This is in no way done with any intention of disrespect or sense vandalism. I LOVE this country, it's traditions, it's celebrations and I WHOLLY respect our Flag and National Monuments. I hope all that view these images and read my submission will enjoy my images for what they are. --- My effort to win some FREE STUFF!!!

CAO America Bottlerocket - Contest Entry

"As some of you may have heard recently.
acigarsmoker.com sponsored a contest related to a cigar review of the CAO America BottleRocket."

"Shortly after the contest was announced we received notices that some unique banners started showing up in parades and celebrations across the country. It appears that one of acigarsmoker.com's fans began distributing his banner nationwide requesting that recipients prominently display the banner in any and all patriotic celebrations."

"It would also appear that the individual behind the banner's creation, a Mr. Se7en, has gained access to some our nation's most notable monuments. His banners have been seen at the base of the Statue of Liberty, scaling the Washington Monument, hanging outside the Capitol Building as well as the White House."

"So now comes the question of who is Se7en? --- We have discovered that Se7en is the nickname of Michael Jackman. And he appears to be one of acigarsmoker.com's biggest fans. Here he is proudly displaying one of his infamous banners surrounded by CAO America cigars and gear.

We asked 'Se7en' to tell us about the CAO America and acigarsmoker.com."

"Although I had been smoking cigars on occasion for years now, I recently have plunged deeper into the world of a cigar aficionado. I found a local B&M that I trusted and enjoyed going to. As I began to realize which cigars I was drawn to, CAO immediately jumped to the front. I have frequently remarked on the quality and consistency of cigars from CAO. And I have probably enjoyed the America's most often (so far).

A few months ago I got into Twitter and quickly found
nyisles. I instantly found that his cigars reviews were better than most. I appreciated his honesty and opinions. I am proud to have the opportunity to display these banners. I think everyone should go to acigarsmoker.com for any cigar related information first, before anywhere else.

Thanks Barry, this is all for you!"

"As you can see Se7en truly is one of acigarsmoker.com's biggest fans. And if it were up to us, he'd definitely win that contest. Good Luck Se7en."

Cole Matthew

Earlier this week we got a new nephew. Cole Matthew. He was born Tuesday, February 10. He weight 8lbs 4oz and was 20-3/4" long.

Mom, Dad & baby are all doing well.

Now we need to get him some Orange & Blue and a nice CAO.
