    ash or no ash?

    Do you find that keeping the ash on as long as you can enhances the flavor? I noticed that just after I knock the ash off, the flavor changes slighty. personaly, I like to keep as much ash as possible.

    Time warp

    I just noticed that for the Hour that Americam Idol was on this forum lost about 40 viewers. I'm sure that all will say that they went to have a smoke while their wife and kids watched it. That's my excuse anyway.

    I must have a some kind of phobia

    I don't know if any of you have had this problem but when deciding what to smoke, I look at my stash and want to smoke the really good ones but end up sparking one of the discounts.
