Re: What are you reading?

The Litigators by John Grisham. Nice send-up of mass tort attorneys.

Most Grisham books are "check your brain at the door" types, but they make me feel better about being an attorney.

Just a curiosity question for those who are on the "buy only American" side of this discussion... Do you only buy American wet-shaving products? Jay, Yes, I do. Save for my brush and my razor (an Old Gillette, so maybe it was made in USA), I use USA-made products. Three pucks of Prairie Creations S...

Pete, I completely agree. I do my best to try and buy things made in the USA. With some things it's relatively easy (cookware, etc.), but things like clothing are a lot harder.

WTB: Personna Hospital Blades

Hi Gents,

I was wondering if someone would be willing to sell me a single pack of the Personna Hospital Blades to try. I like the fact that they're made in the U.S., but I'm admittedly too lazy to pay shipping for one pack of blades from a retailer.

Thanks!

Hi Roy,

If you're not interested in coughing up the dough for the Unscented AOS products (Which are good, btw), you can try unscented soap from Prairie Creations, a small company based in North Dakota.

Here is Krissy's website:

I'd suggest TOBS Avocado. That smells most like spring to me, mostly b/c it smells like cucumbers (to me).

WTB: Baie de Genievre sample

Hi Gents,

I know this is going to be tough, but I was wondering if anyone had a legit sample of Creed Baie de Genievre that I could purchase. I had a sample a while ago, but I am not sure if it was legit or not.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Paddy, In New Orleans, there are two (that I know of) microbreweries.

Both have decent selection and are far better than typical American horse pi...
