Raymond was kind enough to think of me when he received a carton of 'Long Life' cigarettes from Taiwan from some out of town visitors.

Since Raymond wants a long life and is generally a sensible chap, he doesn't smoke. So he passed them on to me at a recent Microsoft bloggers gathering.

I tried two of these oriental delights later that night and soon understood why they were branded Long Life. Two reason I think. The 'after-taste' lasted at least three days. Also, given this quality, the carton will probably last some years as I don't think I'll be trying them again for a very, very long time. But it's the thought that counts, thanks Raymond!

P.S. Light blogging over the next few days - sorting out that thyroid thing. Comments are off in the meantime.
