I do on rare occasions smoke a cigar. Maybe two or three times a year 
at this point. But even long before I took that up, I have always 
liked my food at the spicy end of things.

I was eating hot salsa at the age of three and my parents were at a 
complete loss as to how I acquired the taste as nobody in my family 
was eating it, they are all Dutch and German settled in and around 
the area of New York. They didn't eat such things.
