Pass!

I'm sure buzz et al think differently, but there's nothing useful, besides the looks, of a big brush

Re: Coffee

but I’m lazy, therefore I buy my beans (Komodo Dragon) from Starbucks
ditto on the lazy/buy part!

I used to buy a few bags of italian roast a week, but i switched to their veranda blend several months ago and enjoy it enough not to be looking for something 'better'

Re: Face soap

sam, i have the exact same issue as you and have been using woolfat and the vinolia and nubian heritage (rose of course!!) for about two years. From my side of the woods, you can use any soap you want, nothing other than a moisturizing cream over the counter or prescribed is going to help you
