Social Networking -Brotherhood Style

| March 3, 2011

I’ll bet that most of you guys are taking advantage of some type of “social networking” site whether it be Twitter, MySpace, LinkedIn or Facebook.  Hell, even The Brotherhood of the Leaf is on Facebook so we can stay connected to our members from all over the world to share stories and pictures from our Cigar […]

Yeah, it’s the same thing?

| February 21, 2011

Please heed this warning and DO NOT continue reading if you’re easily offended!  I guarantee that I will offend and piss off  many of you so stop reading right now. For the rest of you, remember I warned you.     I hate (most) politicians and have tried very hard to keep my temperament when it involves politics because […]

I need a break (again)

| February 11, 2011

Seems like it’s been weeks since I’ve had time to sit down and spit out some new material for you guys so let me share with you my long list of excuses as to why you’ve had to wait so long for another ground breaking and award winning blog post.  I don’t bitch about the […]

Victory Monday

| January 24, 2011

WOW!  Sorry, but I can’t think of a better way to start out a victory Monday than with that.  Yeah, I know not all of you guys are Packer fans but today you’ll have to deal with me gloating over this win for a just a little bit because my favorite team has finally returned to […]

More V-Chips and Stogies Please

| January 13, 2011

Less than two weeks into the new year and if I was a betting man, I would wager that most of you have already given up those resolutions you promised yourself you were going keep this year faster than Richard Simmons skipping to a Ricky Martin concert.  I’ve learned that with an attention span shorter than […]

So Long 2010!

| December 30, 2010

In a matter of days we close the cover on the year 2010 and much like anything ever written by Al Gore on Global warming, many hope to never crack the binding on this novel ever again.  It was a year filled with ups and downs as major catastrophes, both natural and man made, saturated […]

Last minute gift thoughts

| December 22, 2010

Well boys and girls, Christmas is just days away and I’m proud to say that I never once stepped foot inside a mall this year.  That’s reason enough to celebrate.  Man I hate those places.  We cut back on most of the unnecessary gift buying this year because it’s completely………unnecessary I guess.  There’s nothing wrong with […]

It’s not even winter yet

| December 13, 2010

I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t mention the fact that Jim Doyle (our soon to be ex-governor) has declared a state of emergency for the entire state of Wisconsin.  That’s all 72 counties fellas!  Blizzard Aiden hammered the Midwest and is responsible for massive snow falls, thousands of cars in the ditch, numerous community […]

But it’s on sale!

| December 2, 2010

Well my Brothers, much like I had predicted, I ate way too much on Thanksgiving and the Lions got their ass handed to them on national television.  Ah yes, keeping up on traditions.  Only hours removed from Turkey day, we are officially full swing into the Christmas Season and I for one love it.  Most of […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

| November 24, 2010

HAPPY THANKSGIVING MY BROTHERS   Don’t forget that the 4th annual Brotherhood of the Leaf Christmas Party Cigar Exchange is December 7th at Titletown Tobacco.  To help get you even more into the spirit, join us for the Titletown Tobacco Christmas Party on December 9th in The Lounge.  Lots of specials and some great food.  […]

Hallmark Holidays?

| November 18, 2010

Well boys and girls, it appears that another year of outdoor smoking has come to an end and I can’t help but notice we’re rapidly approaching the holiday season.  The recent cold snap has got my state of Wisconsin set for another deer hunt as well as preparing for Thanksgiving with the family.  For many of […]

Stop Waiting

| November 10, 2010

Turkey day is fast approaching and for most of us it means a few extra days off from work and the opportunity to stuff our yappers with delicious food before passing out in the La-Z-Boy as the Lions take yet another pounding on national television.  Growing up in Wisconsin, Thanksgiving has always been a huge event for my […]

The Smoking Ballot Box

| October 29, 2010

As much as I try to avoid delving into the political arena on this site, I do have to remind you guys that on top of it being Cigar Night and the Oliva Cigar Event on Tuesday the second at Titletown Tobacco, it’s also voting day.  We share a lust for all things cigar and I […]

What a Weekend

| October 25, 2010

Good thing I don’t do a podcast for you monkeys because after last nights Packer game I basically have no voice today.  Yeah, it was freakin’ awesome seeing the old man get tossed about and again throw the ball up for a few picks.  Say whatever you want about all he did for the organization […]

Statistical BS!

| September 30, 2010

It has been a while since I’ve needed to rant about anything but I saw a commercial last night that I just had to look into.  Have you guys seen these satirical wanna-be ads from an organization called “truth”?  They are an anti-tobacco group that claims to give you real facts from credible sources about […]

Smoke the Vote!

| September 13, 2010

Hey there my members of The Brotherhood, I know it’s a little last minute but I had to let you all know about an event I hope you try to attend.  I was contacted today by a fellow cigar smoker and Cigar Rights of America member who, like, me, is fed up with all the bullshit […]

Thoughts for the parking lot

| September 3, 2010

The last preseason game for my beloved Packers is in the books and that means NFL Kick Off Weekend is just around the corner. I love getting up early on Sunday mornings to pack up the grilling gear and coolers into the truck before making the trek to Lambeau Field for a solid three and a half […]

Gars, Golf, Cycles and Summer

| July 15, 2010

I didn’t blow off any fingers over the 4th of July Holiday playing with fireworks but yet I still type like a carpenter who had an accident with a skill saw.  Checking the calendar I can’t believe that we’re cruising through July and closing in on mid-summer already.  Where the hell have the days gone?  […]

Independence from what?

| June 30, 2010

Before I get too far into my next thought, for anyone that I might have offended with some minor vulgarity in my last post, I kinda apologize.  Not totally apologize because I know you guys all drop the “F” bomb now and then when you’re pissed off , well so did I.  Besides the fact […]

Deep Fried Idiots

| June 23, 2010

I love food.  Actually I love “good food” and a lot of fast food establishments barely qualify as edible but I still have an urge for certain foods even though I know they’re not necessarily good for me.  It’s nice to know I can make that choice.  Having said that, while scanning news headlines this morning […]

Summer Lovin

| June 16, 2010

After bitching about the horrible Wisconsin winter for the last few months in my posts, I figured it was time to share with you my appreciation for summer.  Maybe it’s because I can finally spend some time outside with my cigars instead of being couped up indoors, or maybe because it’s not dark at fucking 4:30 […]

Happy Memorial Day

| May 28, 2010

Sorry about the recent lack of posts but after being in Vegas for a week and coming home to an end of the month in the real estate world, it’s been a bit nuts around here.  That’s why I’m really looking forward to this long weekend with some gorgeous weather predicted so I can kick back with a […]

Potatoes and New Members

| May 11, 2010

Those of you guys that have been reading my posts for a while know that I am a freestyle type of writer.  Once I get my topic or train of thought, I sit down and pound out the words on the keyboard and you read basically read what I’m thinking.  I do have to go […]

Cigaro de Mayo 2010

| April 28, 2010

Hooray hooray the first of May, outside screwing begins today!  Wells it’s actually not quite the first of May but it’s awfully damn close.  The great thing is that we’re only days away from celebrating our version of Cinco de Mayo which has affectionately been dubbed “Cigaro de Mayo” for those of you bastids lucky enough to […]

April Updates

| April 2, 2010

Happy Easter you smoke monkeys!  If I remember the story correctly, three days after his crucifixion Mary Magdalene went to the tomb where Jesus was laid to see his body.  But Jesus had risen from the dead and the stone in front of his tomb had been rolled away.  The story says, if Jesus walks out and […]

Savor The Flavor

| March 23, 2010

My mind started to ponder the infinite wisdom behind big government taking control over tobacco and allowing the FDA to be the headmaster of an industry so old it may be rivaled only by prostitution.  One of the hot issues that the FDA plans to address is flavored tobaccos because they feel it is a […]

Oh Canada………….

| March 3, 2010

The final medals were awarded on Sunday as the 2010 Winter Olympics from Vancouver came to a close.  I don’t know about you guys, but I get drawn into the games and find myself watching hour after of hour of shit I would normally never stay seated on the couch to suffer through.  I have to […]


| February 12, 2010

I’m not even sure where to start on this one.  We all knew it was coming so here it goes.  I think I can be sure that you are all fully aware of the studies out there regarding ETS or Environmental Tobacco smoke more commonly known as Foggy Death, I mean second hand smoke.  I’ve […]

More F’n Taxes

| February 3, 2010

Six more weeks of winter predicted by that pudgy little quadraped from Pennsylvania known as PuxatonyPhil. (hey we have a Phil in our group also) He poked his fuzzy little rodent head out of his burrow ( not our Phil, the other one) and cast a shadow on the ground which  emphatically means six more weeks of winter […]

Lookout 2010, Here we come!

| January 7, 2010

Welcome to 2010 my brothers!  The first Cigar Night of the year is already in the books and from the turnout, it’s going to be another great year.  We’re lucky to have such a wonderful place to congregate and enjoy cigars where the general population can’t bother us. Thanks to the guys from Titletown Tobacco […]

Happy New Year’s

| January 3, 2010

Well fellas, me made it through another year and 2010 is already underway as the first work day of the new year looms heavily on the immediate horizon.  At least we have playoff football to keep us going through these balmy days of early January.  Remind me to rant about pseudo-scientist Al Gore and his […]

Winter Wonderland

| December 15, 2009

It’s easy to get  into the Christmas spirit after such an great turnout at our annual Cigar Night Christmas Party that was held on the first.  We hosted our largest gift exchange to date and shared some Holiday cheer with our fellow members of the Brotherhood.  The pictures are posted so take a look at all […]

Here Comes Santa Claus

| November 23, 2009

MERRY CHRISTMAS!  Ya, I know that as you are reading this you haven’t even passed out from over eating at Thanksgiving yet. Funny thing, you won’t find much about Thanksgiving  in your children’s textbooks anymore. Since political correctness has completely run a muck you’re more likely to read that a bunch of Europeans crashed their Plymouth into a big rock […]

What am I gonna do?

| November 5, 2009

I swear that I saw the first snow flakes of the year Wednesday while at lunch.  It wasn’t much of anything but it did make me realize that outdoor smoking has officially come to an end for us bastids in Wisconsin.  Now I know many of you guys have some great man cave set ups at […]

Squeaky Wheel Paradox

| October 27, 2009

So I’m here trying to be in a good mood and then I catch a little of the daily News, or at least what many brain dead knuckle draggers consider news, and I began to wonder when the fuck did the competent minded normal people completely loose their spines. You’ve all hear the saying; The squeaky […]

October Updates

| October 15, 2009

So much for global warming.  I guess the colder then normal temps can be attributed to the lack of Al Gore’s pompous wind bag speeches.  Since that fat douche bag shut his mouth it seems that the the ominous onset of extreme global heating has somewhat dissipated.  I could be wrong but I doubt it.  […]

October Cigar Night

| October 1, 2009

So much has happend since my last update to you mugs that I almost don’t know where to start.  That’s almost don’t know where to start.  See, by definition alone since you are reading well into my third sentence I have for all practical purposes already begun.  Nah, just fuckin’ with ya.  Actually some really […]

2 Shows a drunk and a Cigar Lounge

| August 26, 2009

So I’m spending last weekend much the same way I do almost every Saturday, recovering from too much drinking the night before with a pot a coffee on the couch watching HGTV and DYI Network home improvement shows.  My wife says the best thing we could do to improve our home is for my lazy […]

August Updates

| August 13, 2009

What up monkeys?  I have a few big updates for you guys so pay attention for a minute and try to stay focused on this.  First off, we had a great night on the 4th for our August Cigar Night.  It was wonderful to see a few new faces as well as a handful of […]

August Cigar Night

| August 2, 2009

Can you believe that we’re already in August?  Of course that means summer is flying by, I haven’t done shit yet and our beloved Brewers are in their annual post All Star Game slump.  Some things never seem to change.  Of course the best part about being August is that football is starting so my […]

Happy G today

| July 15, 2009

Can you guys believe that I’m actually in a good mood today?  As much as I am searching for a reason to bitch (and there are many), I am really having a good couple of weeks.  First off, our last cigar night was a hit and we not only signed up a handful of new […]

Independence Day thoughts

| July 2, 2009

I know you’re hoping I’ll talk about the recent deaths of the pill popper freak or the toilet bowl cleaner salesman but I can’t really add anything more to these fucked up stories than the so-called news anchors have already spit out.  Actually I’d like to tie most of them to an anchor, pitch them overboard […]

June Fun and more updates

| June 16, 2009

How many of you guys didn’t take me seriously when I told you that if you missed the golf outing and Cigar Night last week you would regret it for the rest of your life?  It was a day for the books!  The weather cooperated and we had a perfect day on the coarse followed […]

June Cigar Night

| May 31, 2009

Hello boys (and our First Lady), In between wasting time on Facebook and looking for scantily clad pictures of Jenny McCarthy, I have the privilege of addressing you bastids and overseeing The Brotherhoodof the Leaf along with our monthly Cigar Nights.  It’s a labor of love but for you guys I dutifully man my post […]

Quick Hits for Dip Sh*ts

| May 21, 2009

What’s up my faithful followers?  I’ve got a few updates for you guys that are so important they could not wait.  Well, actually they could but I didn’t want you boys to go an entire week without hearing from me.  I know you can spend a week, or weeks without talking to your wife, kids, […]


| May 13, 2009

I should have yelled TWO!  Happy Hump day pigs!  Thank you to everyone who attended Cigar Night on the 5th, it was another great night of camaraderie and stogies.  Next month we have a full day of fun planned and I will have many more details to follow shortly but I wanted to make you […]

Cigaro de Mayo

| April 29, 2009

Hola Gringos!  Can you believe that it’s almost May and that summer will be upon us before we know it.  Hot milfs in swimsuits, cigars on the deck, cold beer from a ice filled cooler………whew, where was I?  Oh yeah, come out to help celebrate The Brotherhood’s version of May 5th as we party to […]

Our Day at Prime Cigar

| April 23, 2009

First off, shame on you lazy a-holes for missing this event.  I can only imagine that the only thing you could have been doing that might have been better than the day we had was possibly burying your mother-in-law.  For those of you that did not make the trek to Prime Cigar Company in Brookfield […]

Quick Updates

| April 9, 2009

That’s right my Brothers, your new calendar and bulletin board is up and running!  You can post updates about yourself, the club, your work or anything else you think we might find interesting.  Just remember to try and keep it clean so I don’t have to delete all your posts.  Just go to the Bulletin […]

April 7th Cigar Night

| April 1, 2009

Am I the only one that has finally had enough winter to last me until, well at least next year?  Just when I think spring is ready to make an official entrance we get another f#ucken snowfall as a kick in sack to remind us that we still need to go indoors to enjoy a […]
