Why you Need a Humidor in Your Home

Nothing rocks a cigar lover or collector's world than the access to enjoying good cigars. Whether you get to enjoy your cigar or not depends on your maintenance culture.

What are Humidors?

Just like you have a refrigerator to store perishable goods, you have humidors to help control and regulate the temperature of your cigar. A humidor is a primary equipment for cigar storage and maintenance. A humidor can be as small as a box for personal storage of cigars or it could be large enough for you to walk in like in cigar stores. Either way, its primary aim is to maintain the humidity level of your cigars so that they last longer and improve on the tastes and aromas. A regular cigar humidor is made up of some important components to help it achieve its regulation purpose. These components include; hygrometer, thermostat, and humidifier.

The Importance of Humidors

Below are some of the Missy common benefits of using a humidor in your space especially if you smoke.

Control Humidity Levels

The most important function of humidors is to control humidity levels as the name implies. Humidity tampers with healthy cigars such that if your cigar is too wet, it becomes cluttered and messy. This in turn means the aroma, flavor, and smoke from the cigar get all wrong. In the same vein, when your cigar is too dry, it just falls apart. The key to enjoying your cigar is keeping the humidity level balanced at all times.

Protection Against Sunlight

An added advantage of humidors is that they protect your cigars against the direct sun rays. The harshness of the sun contradicts the maintenance culture of your cigar. It is only logical because the humidor comes in boxes and is more often than not, secured tightly when it isn't in use.

Preservation and Spicing

Like wine, the longer cigars remain in humidors, the better they taste. The humidor adds its unique flavor to the cigar's original flavor. This is coupled with the fact that it protects your cigars from being infested with tobacco beetles.

Types of Humidors

There are different types of humidors ranging from size, price, texture, etc. Here we will discuss some common types of humidors:

Humidors for Traveling

Humidors for traveling are handier and smaller than other kinds. You may find a pocket-sized humidor to accommodate two or three cigars or a small briefcase size for longer trips. Your traveling habit should not be a reason to let fine cigars go to waste.

Personal Humidors (desktop/cabinet)

Personal humidors are easily the commonest kinds of humidors. They are often found in homes of people who value good smoke. They may be able to accommodate up to 50 or more cigar collections at the same time. You may place cabinet humidors at the bar or let desktop humidors sit in a nice corner in your study/office.

Commercial Humidors

Commercial humidors may be extremely large enough for you to walk in. They house larger amounts of cigars, tobaccos, and other kinds of smoke. These humidors are mostly found in stores.

Electrical Humidors

While many humidors are manually operated, the electric humidors work with electricity. They however perform the same functions.


Humidors are extremely important to maintain cigar quality. Without a humidor, your cigars may not last for more than a couple of days as they may suffer from dehydration or too much humidity.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes

I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

What you did sounds dumb to me

An open letter to my father
The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
