RH 59%

Ok so I bought a humidor about a month ago. I seasoned it etc.. for the first two weeks it stayed between 68-72. However it dropped to 59% so I figured the humidifier needed some water. I filled up the humidifier and for 2 days it stayed at like 75% and then began to fall. Well it went right back to 59%. Should I recharge the humidifier? If so is that typical to refill it every 2 weeks? It's only a 25 cigar humidor, so it's pretty small.

    Did you recently put a bunch of "Fresh" cigars in it? That might cause the sudden drop in RH. One other thing I noticed with my humi is to give it a month with nothing but sponges and distilled water, than slowly add your cigars in blocks of 5 per day. You might have better luck that way. Even so, keep an eye on it, and refill as often as needed. it took a long time, but mine finally settled down.

    thats right you'v told me this before. I think you did just add a few stick recently. I'd stick an extra bowl of water in their and let everythign stabilize or get beads to go along with the torpedo.

    funny, now that i think of it, i saw them both together in 2000...
  • kaspera79kaspera79 Posts: 7,259 ✭✭✭
    I have seen Ted several times and my absolute favorite song of his is Stranglehold.. It inspired me to learn how to play guitar. I spent three weeks learning that one song..and can play it note for note.. He was in concert a few nights ago at a local Ribfest near me. Didn't get out there but someone I know said he kicked it..as usual.
  • kuzi16kuzi16 Posts: 14,616 ✭✭✭✭
    yeah... ya know what pissed me off when i saw him? ...didnt play stranglehold.

    BAH!!!

    I read where he said there are three songs he will always play.. He refers to them as his children and his favorite songs. Great White Buffalo, ( for Urbino ) Cat scratch Fever, and Stranglehold. I guess he had a time frame to meet..
  • kuzi16kuzi16 Posts: 14,616 ✭✭✭✭
    he did play the other two.

    I'm waving my torch lighter in the air. (Though I'm not a Nugent fan.)

    Ted reminds me of my wilder youth.. When you "mature " you listen to more mellow bluesy jazzy stuff, I have heard ... what is the name they use Adult Contemporary...... Didn't you post one time something about Cat Power.. I saw her/them on Letterman a while back not bad at all.. A very unique voice on Cat. My musical tastes are wide reaching..I listen to everything..

    I did. Such a memory! She does have a very unique voice. Sometimes I like it, sometimes not so much. I listen to lots of different stuff, too. My favorite band is Wilco, which, as a Chicagoan, you'll probably appreciate.

    According to a trusted source, as you get older you're supposed to embrace the Sting catalog and burn 47 pound Sandlewood scented candles with your non-gender specific co-habitator all while talking about feelings and such.

    Sure do, local talent that loves to play for the chicago fans that got them noticed.. They play a lot of small venue shows throughout the year and they always pack the place..

    I knew Tweedy did a lot of solo shows in small venues. Didn't know the full band did. That's very cool. And makes me very jealous. I've seen them twice, here.

    Son Volt was pretty good while it lasted, too. And Farrar has done some good solo albums. The reconstituted Son Volt, though, hasn't done much for me, so far.
