So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish-Douglas Adams

Not to long ago I was writing a private blog and looking for something different to review about.I set about contacting some cigar shops on twitter to see if they had any house brands.I was going to do a series of them for reviews. unbeknownst to me at the time that he wasn’t a B&M ,I contacted Mikesstogies. I got a reply from mike that said “no I don’t have any house brands I do reviews here, but I could do reviews for him on his site”. So it began. I took him up on his offer and went “big time”. During my stay here I have worked with some great fellow reviewers(Griff and Youngbuck) who I have had a blast with video conferencing and the general funny mayhem that goes on behind the scenes here. About January of this year I got a call from GCPuffs asking if I could help him out by writing some pieces for him. I told him at the time that I could do OP/Ed pieces and life style/Interviews to help out. I didn’t want to do reviews as Mike had given my first shot and loyalty and gratefulness is not something I have forgotten.When I called mike and asked him if he would mind if I helped GC out; I don’t think I finished the complete sentence before he said yes. It says a lot about mike and the camaraderie online reviewers have. two weeks ago GC asked if I would take over as the content manager of his site and write “full-time” for him. To say I was floored is an understatement. I called mike to tell him I was going to take the offer I had been generously given.His reply was “wow. Yeah man any thing I can do let me know.” It wasnt as easy a decision for me but the opportunity was to great to pass up. Both GC and Mike are men of  Honor and generosity.There are not enough good words to say about every one here. I won’t say goodby. Only thank you mike for taking a leap of faith and giving a guy a shot. ALL THE BEST-smokinjoe
