Saint Luis Rey Petit Coronas Review:
Origin: Cuba Manufactured: Hand Made
Length: 129 mm
Good little surprise here! SLR taste profile, which was weakened by the fact of the narrower ring gauge. They have concentrated a lot of the qualities of their expert torcedores and tobacco leave selectors to present a good petit corona. I like the slight spice/grass taste which makes me an SLR fan and was pleased at how this smoked. Slowly, with ample amounts of leather and spice – this smokes like a much larger cigar. Most enjoyable. Smoothness throughout. Same as the rest of the family.
What a pleasant cigar in the best sense of the word. Smooth, creamy, good draw, nice white ash, superb looking wrapper and a good price, what more can you ask for in a small cigar.

Piña Colada - Old-style recipe for this popular drink.

The coconut cream needs to have the right consistancy, some find the alternative, coconut milk to be too thin, however you can add condensed milk to coconut milk to bring up it’s thickness. Add pineapple juice if desired. Put all ingredients into an electric blender with 2 cups of crushed ice. Blend at a high speed for a short length of time. Strain into a collins glass and serve with a straw.

According to sources, UFC Light Heavyweight contender, Phil Davis has suffered a left knee injury. Due to the injury, he will have to withdraw from his UFC 133 Co-Main Event match with former champion, Rashad Evans. Davis and Evans were scheduled to meet at UFC 133 on August 6th, but now the UFC is scrambling to find a replacement.
MMA Fighting writer, Mike Chiappetta reports Tito Ortiz was offered Davis’ spot by Dana White but was turned down. Dana White confirmed this in a text to MMA Fighting. This would have been a rematch of the controversial Evans vs. Ortiz match in 2007, which gave Evans the win.
Speculation is that Ortiz (winner of his first fight in 5 years) turned down the spot due to insufficient time to prepare for the fight. The current name floating around as a replacement is Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida but nothing is confirmed at this point.
As of now, Rashad Evans remains oponentless. Should Evans remain on the UFC 133 card, whomever the opponent may be will also potentially suffer from a lack of preparation time.
Strikeforce: Fedor Emelianenko vs. Dan Henderson, takes place July 30th, 2011 on Showtime. Will this be Fedor’s last fight? Loser of 2 in a row in shocking fashion (tap out, doctor stoppage), Fedor prepares for another fight after strongly considering retirement.
Emelianenko returns to the cage to face Dan Henderson, if Emelianenko does not win, many expect him to retire. In his last fight with Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, Emelianenko wilted in the second round as Silva passed to mount, Silva unleashed a furious ground-and-pound on Emelianenko that left him bloody and swollen. Emelianenko wanted the fight to continue, but his right eye had swollen so much that ringside doctors called a stop to the fight, claiming Emelianenko could not see.
Immediately after the fight, Emelianenko implied he may retire after losing 2 in a row. Through a translator he said, “Yes, maybe, it’s the last time. Maybe it’s high time. Thanks for everything. I spent a great beautiful long sport life. Maybe it’s God’s will.” But after some time, it was clear that Emelianenko was speaking on emotion as he planned to fight again. But will a third loss in a row convince Emelianenko to retire? Or will a victory keep him going? We can only wait and see.
Megan Fox, the former Transformers and Jennifer’s Body star wants to set the record straight.
The goal of these photos is pretty obvious, Fox wants to set the record straight and prove she does not have botox injections. Four photos were posted of Fox raising her eye brows and scrunching her forehead. A typical person with botox could not do such things as the botox would prevent the person from much, if any movement in the botox injected areas.
The timing of Fox’s botoxless photos coincides with her new Giorgio Armani Beauty campaign which started on Wednesday, July 6th. Fox will be featured in the Gloss d’Armani campaign as well as a 2011 limited summer edition which includes eye shadow, sheer bronzer, blush, mascara and sheer lipstick.
We have to admit, Megan Fox looks pretty damn good in these pictures. Click the photos to enlarge!
Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” received terrible reviews from critiques but praise from audiences. Scoring a 38% and 90% respectively on RottenTomatoes.com
While Michael Bay’s “big film/big budget formula” may not appeal to all it does attract a crowd, making $162.1M at the box office so far. The movie was everything I expected awesome special effects, lots of action, and not much story. Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon was better than Transformers 2: Revenge of the fallen in all but once capacity (I miss Megan Fox). Do not watch this movie if you are expecting Shakespeare but a must see if you like senseless action packed block busters full of special effects.
We learn that mankind’s first mission to the moon was intended to investigate an alien space craft that crashed on the dark side. This ship, “the Arc,” carried the Autobots last hope to our solar system a long time ago.
Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf), who earlier saved the world but now has a job in a mail room, and Carly (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley), who is his sexy girlfriend. There are also such characters as Mearing (Frances McDormand), a government official; Bruce Brazos (John Malkovich), Sam’s anal-retentive boss; Carly’s boss Dylan (Patrick Dempsey), whose classic car collection upstages every robot in the movie; the FBI manipulator Simmons (John Turturro) ; the peculiar Jerry Wang (Ken Jeong), and the expert warriors Lennox (Josh Duhamel) and Epps (Tyrese Gibson).
If you are a member of PETA, don’t watch this video. The vehicle above is a Lamborghini LP670-4 SV (Super Veloce). And here we have a squirrel against the Lamborghini LP670-4 SV. This is not a special squirrel, it has no special powers. It’s just your average tree climbing, nut gathering squirrel. The Lamborghini on the other hand is one of the makers biggest, fastest and baddest models. Who wins? Watch the video to see how it comes out.
The site where Ryan Dunn’s Porsche crashed was turned into a make shift memorial by friends, family and fans. Hundreds of goers stop by to leave pictures, cards, candles and flowers in his memory. Recently the site has been vandalized by someone that may be a bad speller.
The guard rail adorned with messages written fans and family was spray painted over with the words “Ritch Prick.” Yes, “Ritch.” So there are no suspects, police say it would be impossible to narrow down when or who vandalized the guard rail as there are numerous visitors every hour.
