Re: In honour of our fearless leader

I'm still here, transplant in after eight days' chemo, and counts falling rapidly. The crunch will be next week when I am reliant on transfused blood and platelets, and will probably get septic, but after that things are supposed to get better! I can't see the linked image in the first post, no matt...

Re: Plumbing!

Locked in a single room now, but Pippa able to visit as she likes in the daytime. Bususlphan IV today and tomorrow, and anti-thymocyte globulin tomorrow and Tuesday. Because busulphan can cause seizures, I'm taking lorazepam/Ativan four times a day, and find I cannot type properly. Transplant goes i...

This is how I get daily blood tests and infusions. The tube travels under the skin, loops over the collar bone and dives down the internal jugular to just above the heart.

How the mighty are fallen! Can only use my left hand today, so for the first time in over a year it wasn't a straight shave. Brass General with Feather blade on a Jagger handle, long-discontinued C&E Sandalwood cream, the cobalt scuttle and my best Apothecary Shop brush:

That's because you are a(n old) man of good taste! There was a time when it regularly made lists of the worst scent ever, along with Pinaud Lilac Vegetal (which it faintly resembles). But if you can encompass 'sweet' and 'green' at the same time in your olfactory imagination, you know it could be gr...

Re: TRUMPER "SPECIAL SCALP LOTION" AND "SPECIAL L

Lovely! It was always the old Eucris Hair Lotion for me (although as a well-shaken aftershave application rather than as a hair oil). I find it a bit sad that no modern shavers have any idea how very well they may moisturise and scent their shaven faces with a properly shaken mixture of mere mineral...

Re: What Did You Hone Today?

Six Livis so far have been delightful, but I thought I'd touch up a couple of the remainder just to make the last shaves extra good. So today I freshened up my oldest briarwood, and the mammoth ivory-scaled Snake razor. http://drmoss.ca/Web%20Images/Original%20briarwood%20Livi.jpeg http://drmoss.ca/...

Re: Socks

The nicest socks I've ever owned were from Gammarelli , a Rome tailoring business that has catered to the Vatican for over two hundred years.
