Re: First pair of boots

Nice boots Gary.

I'll offer up my daily wear of Red Wing 606s. One pair for work, one pair for weekend use. May not be what you're looking for, but a quality boot to consider.

Re: baseball glove?

I will add a little to the mix. I can't speak much for softball gloves specifically as I hail from Chicago where softball was played in the sixteen inch variety as opposed to kitten ball. You have some sound advice above. For baseball gloves, I used to be a Rawlings guy when I was younger. About 8-9...

Re: What bath soap are you using right now?

I've enjoyed the traditional nature of bars of soap, and I have amassed some favorites over the years. On a whim I tried out a salux wash cloth with some body wash (at this time Dr. Bronners), and I don't think I'm going back to using just a bar and my hands again.

It has evolved again too. Somewhat of a throwback with some Musgo Products from the early days. Once I replace my computer that died I'll post the current evolution.

Taylor suggestions are a solid choice. I continue to pick up some of their cream with regularity. The price and quality make it an easy buy. I'm a one cream/aftershave kind of guy, and I have been using DR Harris Arlington for quite some time. Current supply is almost empty with a more likely than n...

I felt the same way Clive when I first tried it some years back. I was told that the scent had changed a bit, but to me it was still a very nice cream. Mine happened to be in one of the metal tubes which made it all that much better. Enjoy it!

Understandable Wendell. I'm surprised that Apple pushes a product that they jokingly call a 'hobby'. Having never subscribed to cable I hope that they work content deals for a more a la carte system. I will say my quick pitch though for the apple tv. Roku boxes may be better, but since I got myself ...

Wendell, I've been looking over some bluetooth speakers for the same use, but I have never pulled the trigger. Another option is (if you have a nice home stereo setup with the television) to utilize an AppleTv. I have one connected to my tv, but no speakers yet. I've wavered back and forth on sound ...

I have a similar problem under my chin. Zero pressure as said above, and for me a bit of skin 'moving' not stretching and an awkward blade angle usually gets it done with just one pass. Otherwise it gets a bit red.

How'd you know what I looked like when I saw the price.

I had a credit that was expiring soon, so it only cost me an extra $2.80. Figured why not.

Thanks Gary for sharing that story. All of my grandparents passed when I was a really little guy, so it's nice hearing others shared experiences. Sounds like a nice cold glass of lemonade would be in order on days like that.

Pre Black Friday Deals

I figured I'd give a heads up that Southwest is offering some good deals today only according to their email should anyone be shopping for airfare for the holidays. I snagged a round trip flight to NYC for just under a hundred bucks. Discount code and info is on their home page.
