    A medium rare rib eye steak with fried onion rings followed by a slice of NY cheesecake is heaven for me.

    But when I'm near someone who is smoking a really, really good cigar, I always stand around downwind and enjoy the aroma.
    I also always explain what I'm doing, and I always say "Thank you!"

    I'd do the same with pipe smokers, but nobody seems to smoke good pipe tobacco, any more.

    Never had twist. Red Man and plug tobacco I gave up after getting married. Jr. about died after drinking from the wrong cup.

    I have an obsession with books. I can't really call my relationship with books a vice because, by definition, a vice is wicked or immoral. I do know that I may have a problem with books, however.

    I have been "gathering", "collecting", "accumulating" books enthusiastically if not compulsively for about twenty years. I have a carefully curated spreadsheet that provides a complete inventory of every book I own along with its copyright date, publishing date, publisher, edition, physical condition, price of acquisition and approximate current value. A separate spreadsheet tracks the ever expanding list of tomes I am seeking.

    Though it does not rise to the moral equivalent of a vice my habit has, on occasion, caused my SO to raise her eyebrows.

    I rationalize that the books simply represent one facet of a diversified investment portfolio that includes physical assets, though I only buy and NEVER sell.

    I switched to twist because it’s sugar free and less fattening

    Funny, nowadays I usually throw away books as soon as I've finished reading them.

    A couple of years ago, a language-teacher friend decided to move back to Turkey, to care for her aging parents.
    "I've got all these books to get rid of," she said. "I can't afford to take them with me. I guess that I'll dump them into the recycling bins at the trash center."
    "BOOKS?" I replied, "BOOKS? No, no, no...give them to me!"

    So the very next day she came over to our house and left off a three-foot-cube box filled with books...all on Islamic subjects.
    So far, I've gotten about half-way through the huge pile. I'm now quite an expert on Islam.

    I do admit to discarding several, as I've read through them.
    Some of them were mere polemics which insisted that Islam was good and great, and really wanted peace in the world.
    But those particular books always seemed to end up declaring that there could only be peace if we all became Muslims.

    But most of those books have been entirely useful, and have deeply increased my understanding of Islamic history and of the religion itself.
    And many of those useful books were written by Christians and Jews!

    I'm keeping all of the good ones, of course.
    Trouble is, I'm running out of bookshelf room in the three rooms which are lined with bookshelves.

    Yeah, Swedishsteel. You're right. I guess it is a vice.

    (In my will, I've left the best parts of my very large gun-book collection to our local library. The Managing Librarian says that he really does want them, and that they'll be kept as a permanent reference collection in my name.)
