"1. You might not think you are eating that much or very poorly but you might be surprised. I used an app called My Fitness Pal to help track what I ate and how much I exercised. I knew my eating habits were pretty poor but…"
"One of my favorite stores lately is "Thrift". Plenty of brands to choose from at a very good price. Obviously you need to take some time and check for defects, rips, stains, etc. You can even pick up some high end items,…"
"A couple things you can try.

"I learned to shake someone's hand at a young age. It wasn't exactly stated word for word. It was through shaking my dad's, uncle's, grandfathers, etc, etc, etc, hands and learning "first hand" what a proper…"

I have come to the realization that I have a fondness for the Golden Leaf, in virtually all it's forms. I love a good cigar with a nice scotch (or just walking around the neighborhood), nothing like a pipe to calm the nerves after a long, hard day, hookah is just ace, and well, as much as I hate to admit it, even a good Class A Cigarette has it's place in my weekly tobacco usage (more on that in a moment).I want to learn all I can about tobacco as a hobby (not growing it, YET)-the different…See More
