Catching Up With President John F. Kennedy 35th President of the United States


Today I sat down with the President of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Today’s discussion was about present-day politics, cigars, golf, and the future of America. So here we go and I hope you enjoy it.

The first topic that we spoke about was the present-day politics. JFK said he was not pleased with the current candidates and believed that this country does not have much to pick from for the next four years. I asked JFK if he would have still been a member of the Democratic party if he was here with us today and he stated “Absolutely not!” I asked him why and he stated that the party has abandoned all of its ideals and principles from his time thus he would have switched to the Republican Party especially after Ronald Reagan became President. I asked him how he felt about his current day living family members endorsing Barrack Obama for President? JFK stated he was ashamed and that he would not had joined them. JFK stated that he attempted to pave the way back when he was President to put an end to racism, and Barrack has shown through his twenty year contact with Reverend Wright that he does not. JFK stated that in regards to Hilary Clinton, he was very concerned with the fact that she is too wishy-washy in her stances on issues that will affect America. He stated that he would love to see a woman in the White House but that Hillary was not that person. In regards to John McCain, JFK stated that John is Rhino and not a true Republican and that is clear in his past voting records and affiliations such as with his brother Ted Kennedy. JFK thought that if McCain would have run as an Independent he would have been far better off, and not been in the place that he is in today which is being a member of a party that is not fully supporting him. I asked JFK who his choice would have been today? JFK “LOL” stated of course me! After a minute of laughter between the both of us, he stated Mitt Romney because he felt Mitt was pure and genuine and would run the country as he said he would in his campaign speeches before dropping out of the race.  JFK just felt that Mitt was the man for the job and felt bad that the American people didn’t see it.

The topic then turned towards cigars. I brought JFK some Padrons 1926 & 1964 series (maduro). I explained to him that cigars have come along way since he put the Cuban embargo into effect in 1963. JFK was amazed and quickly asked if we could light one up. We both chose the 1926, and clipped and lit them. After one puff, JFK was astounded and stated “Boy, I wish these were around when I was President. I guess the embargo wasn’t that bad for cigar smokers after all!” I told him about the cigar boom in the 1990’s and that women were also enjoying premium cigars as well. JFK was amazed and wished he could have enjoyed his cigars in public places instead of always hiding them to confined areas where no was watching. I then handed JFK a box of Davidoffs, CAO’s “American” of course, Don Pepin black label, Don Pepin JJ’s, La Gloria series seven, oh and as requested by him a box H Upmans. JFK was really excited and stated that once I he got back to the White House, he would go straight to his humidor and there they would all go. JFK stated that he was amazed with the tastes, construction, and just outstanding over all feeling of today’s cigars. We continued to smoke our Padrons and JFK and I continued to talk the day away.

We then turn towards the topic of golf which was of course about Tiger Woods. I showed JFK a bunch of clips of Tiger and he stated “that guy is outstanding.” JFK stated that he would have loved to spend the day watching Tiger play a round of golf and hopefully gain some pointers from him.  JFK was also amazed with the clubs of choice in today’s age and stated (LOL) “Boy my game would have excelled if I had those babies!”

Our last topic was about the future of the United States. JFK stated “Hang in there America everything will be fine.” He was concerned with the way modern-day politics was headed and wished he brought his brother Bobbie with him because he would prosecute every crooked one of them. JFK stated that Bobbie had a great knack for that type of thing and loved America and wanted to rid crooked people from politics all together. Over all JFK was pleased with modern-day results and was confident  that the US was in overall good shape.

Unfortunately it was time for JFK and I to end our conversation. JFK lit up his Padron series 64 and stated “Stew, I hope we are going to do this again, but this time you are coming to the White House and smoke a Cuban H Upman with me.” I gladly excepted. With that he got up from his rocker and with a flash he was gone.

Perdomo Lot 23 Maduro Torpedo

Todays cigar of choice was the Perdomo lot 23 Maduro torpedo. I bought this cigar on the advice from one of the owner of the Humidor cigars shop in East Greenwich Rhode Island. Ok now for the review, priced at just $5.50 a stick, which I saw as a bargain drew me towards it. Well to my surprise after all the ranting and raving by the owner, I found this to be a complete disaster for me. The only good thing about this cigar was the toasting phase and first draw. Once that was over I found none of the flavors to agree with me. I found it to be earthy and woodsy.

Though I stuck with this cigar and should have followed my on advice about “Never smoke a shitty cigar, life is too short” the misery. Towards the end of this smoke a huge amount of tar substance exited the tip which landed in my hands and mouth (YUCK). Once I was finished, I continued to have this gross taste in my mouth which I have not experience since smoking a cigar when I was a teenager and that folks was ages ago. To put it plain and simple, “SKIP” this one and pay the extra cash to enjoy your time with a better cigar. I know this is only my opinion but I hated this cigar and will now skip this line completely.

Till next time, as always “Never smoke a shitty cigar, life is too short!” – I know next time follow your own advice.

Padron Series 1926


Today I am blogging about the Padron Series serial # 356228 cigar by Padron. Boy this is a beautiful cigar and the tastes of cocoa and chocolate will send you into seven heaven for the entire smoke. When the Padron’s tell you this cigar is ready to smoke right from the box, they are not kidding. I love everything about this cigar from the looks, feel, and taste. Now I could go into cosmetics, appearance, etc by why bother with this baby! Please I know it is an expensive cigar but put this on your list as a must try. So that’s it from here, I am going to go back to smoking this baby!

God bless

Red Sox On A Roll!

Red Sox continue to maze us in high fashion. Again down runs to the Texas Rangers in the later part of the game, Manny comes through as usual. Another big shot by him puts the Red Sox ahead for good and sets up another chance for the best closer in baseball “Papelbon” to shut the door, which he did. I am so excited about this team and believe that we may have another championship team. Hey its a long season but the way these guys are playing it is possible.

Go Sox



NUB Cameroon 464 T Torpedo Cigar

Hello everyone,                     

It is in the 60’s here in New England and now it is time to sit on my back deck and light up a cigar. The cigar of choice today is the NUB Cameroon 464 T Torpedo. This cigar company is “awesome” and I suggest that you look them up at and give them a shot, you will not be disappointed.

Ok back to the cigar. This cigar is 4 by 64 and has a white and blue wrapper. It has a nice brown wrapper and is an awesome sight to look at. The size of this cigar makes up for the small lenght. DO not be fooled though this smoke will keep you busy relaxing for a long time. I smoked this yummy cigar for well over and hour and a half. 

Ok the draw on this is awesome and the toasting phase went just as well. Once you get this monster started you will find large amounts of pure smoke producing. The flavors for this monster starts off spicy and then turns creamy and buttery which is pure heaven. Though this is not my favorite “NUB” cigar I would smoke this on any day with good company.

In closing this is a great cigar and if you do your homework you can find a box for around $108.00. Now get on the internet or to your local smoke shop and try it. 

As always “Go Sox” and “Never smoke a trashy cigar, life is too short.”


God Bless


Sox / Yankees series

Hello everyone, though this will be a short post I am just wondering how everyone is feeling about the up coming series. I believe that the Sox will take two out of three. I feel strong about this prediction and hope you do too my fellow Sox fans. Any ways let me know with all your comments. Enjoy tonight’s game against the Tigers and I look forward to all of your comments. As always “GO SOX!”

Sox drop three to the Blue Jays

Well, the weekend series with the Blue Jays has ended. The Sox dropped three in a row and Saturday’s game was a complete blow out. I personally believe that it has to do with the Japan trip. I still think that they are exhausted from it. I know it sounds like I am making excuses for their losses but facts are facts. Look back to when the Yankees made the trip to Japan and look what happen to them. 


Hey it’s only the beginning of the season and soon we all get to see the World Champs rings when they arrive home at Fenway Park. I think once they get their eyes on them the bats will wake up and everything will be back to normal. As they always say, “Keep the faith Sox Nation.”


When will America wake up?

As the race for President continues now we learn that America’s hero “Barrack Obama” has aligned himself with a racist, a hater of white people, and America. This person is Reverend Wright. A person who has been Barrack’s spiritual adviser, a person who Barrack has consulted with for guidance, a person who Barrack has looked to for over twenty years. I know by now that all of you have heard the hate speeches from Rev. Wright and should be disgusted that in this day and age a person who wishes to be President of the United States would support and align him or herself with a character like Rev. Wright. 

Now with this said, why should we support and vote for a man who aligns himself with such a person. Barrack has been preaching change since his campaign and the way I see it is “Where is this change when you align yourself with hate mongers like Rev. Wright?” Where is the change when Barrack will not distance himself from a hate preaching monger like Rev. Wright? Where is the change when Barrack makes excuses for hate monger like Rev. Wright? 

I thought “Change” is moving forward and improving the future. “Change” is not holding in hatred and anger for the past. So with that said, Where is the change that Barrack speaks about? The only change I see is that Barrack has been exposed as the same political figure that America has been plagued with for years. A person who speaks a good game but in reality is nothing more but smoke and mirrors.

Folks please once again do we need a person who ties himself with racist ideas in the White House? 

Please America wake up! I know you want change but are you willing to turn a blind eye .
