CO Herf 2.0 Instructions

Posted on Thursday, March 12, 2015 in World of CO

150107ig0004OK guys less than 48 hours to CO Herf 2.0!

For everyone attending – we are up to 14 people now and while there is plenty of space for us out back, parking will be a bit tight. The first few arrivals need to park next to me on the lawn. The next 4 can take the driveway, pull all the way up. After that just find space on the street, pulling up on the sidewalk.

If you guys want to coordinate what you are bringing you can do so here. I’ll be doing an epic 15 lbs. of pulled pork for samiches :)

We are a go for Livestream! Egor Rapoport generously is letting me use his account to stream! The link will be posted Saturday with a new post for everyone to watch and chat! No livestream this time – the last one greeted me with two pages of YouTube copyright matches because the mic was picking up the gazebo music. However, everyone there will be sharing videos in the CO Fans group so you can interact there with everyone! Click above if you aren’t already in!

I can’t wait!!

2nd Annual CfW Donation Drive Update 15

Posted on Monday, March 9, 2015 in World of CO

Untitled-1If you are donating and your package is NOT in the mail by Tuesday, DO NOT send anything for this drive, you can send anything you like direct to Cigars For Warriors past this point.

We are up to 2991 in so far! I’ll be doing these updates as I get similar size batches in all the way to the end!

Last year we had a tremendous turnout obliterating the record books, and I think we can do it again this year!

Now through March 15th I will be collecting any and all cigar donations that will be dropped off to Cigars For Warriors! Anything is appreciated, even the super cheap smokes. What they do is send out very balanced care packages and since many over there are new smokers they need a lot of lower end stuff to fill in!

As usual I will be doing weekly update vids showing everything that came in and then will drive up with the bounty for the final turn in tally vid with them again :)

Thanks! (more…)

General Cigar Sent Me a Trademark Violation Letter

Posted on Monday, March 9, 2015 in World of CO

Today I received and responded to what boiled down to a cease and desist Trademark Violation letter from General Cigar, for my Cigar Art involving their frontmarks, which is now just a portfolio here on the site. Since it’s not worth a penny to me to fight, I gave in and stopped offering the artwork for sale.

So as a result I am no longer supporting in any way, General Cigar. No more reviews of their products (unless one accidentally slips by because I didn’t realize it was under their umbrella), no more press releases, no more accepting them for advertising.

To be crystal clear I am not advocating consumers do anything. I am simply informing you of what I am personally doing regarding the site.

So there’s a big warning to anyone producing and selling anything with Brands/Logos such as any other kind of artwork, clocks, guitars, collages with bands, etc.
