Thought for Today: “Love doesn’t grow on trees like apples in Eden [–] it’s something you have to make. And you must use your imagination too.” [–] Joyce Cary, Anglo-Irish author (1888-1957).

Ten Questions for 2020.

https://halfwheel.com/ten-questions-for-2020/370275/amp/
An interesting read.
Boy, that really is interesting. I had no idea IPCPR had been renamed. Things don't look so good for cigar smokers.
I was interested in Nat Sherman being bought by J.C. Newman. I didn't think Newman was that big anymore.
The industry is being destroyed. Soon enough there will only be one company left.
Kinda like all the Mom and Pop's in the face of Walmart and other big boxes.

If it makes you feel any better, independent bookstores are doing really well against the likes of Amazon.

Probably, but he claims we won't be hearing about it. Though, I didn't log in yesterday, so I don't know if that resolution is still holding. ;)

Same here. In fact, discussing it reminded me to contact them to pre-order a book that comes out next week.
