Re: What bath soap are you using right now?

Switched over to Aveeno unscented. I like it a lot.

Re: Day travel bag

I have a Kriega but it’s probably not your style. I don’t ride a motorcycle but I wanted a dry pack. I have the 100% waterproof
Version.

They also make the Kriega Urban EDC Messenger bag. I haven’t read much about that one but it looks cool to me.

Re: Kitchen knives

I sharpened two knives with the Trizor XV. The first knife was a Cuisinart chef's knife that I won for something or another at a grocery store. It's a very cheap knife and I used it for everything. I don't particularly like it primarily because of the the way it feels in my hand. I did my best to ge...

Re: Kitchen knives

Funny that this thread popped up. I'm actually headed out today to pick up a Trizor XV sharpener.

Looking forward to getting my knives back in good shape on my own.

Re: What bath soap are you using right now?

Not a soap, but a body wash: Jack Black All Wash. It's less drying than some of the other brands of gel or gel-like body wash. Haven't had an issues with it and I like the scent.

Re: New Mattress Suggestions?

I own a Sleep Number but it's not a particularly high end model. I'd have to look up to see what it is... probably a queen p6. I looked through my e-mails and noticed that the delivery was an issue.... drove me nuts. Around the time I purchased my bed I exchanged messages with a buddy of mine and ap...

Re: Memories of barbershops when growing up.

I'm in my mid-40's and remember a barbershop at a little strip mall near my childhood neighborhood. The owner's name was Ray... I googled around a bit and he still seems to own the shop. I remember going there in the mid-to-late 1970s. I don't remember too many details though. I do remember the str...

Re: Worst scent ever

I don't care for the Master Colognes....

I tried Master Topaz... no wonder it's $36.00 a gallon.

Draggon Noir #14 as well.

I'm surprised criminals don't use this stuff to mask odors odors when necessary.

Speaking of eggs I was just watching a YouTube video of Jacques Pepin preparing a traditional French omelette.

I’ll give it a go again.... maybe several knowing my luck.

Oribe Products

I think most of their products are aimed at women. However, they have some of the best pomade, wax, fiber & grooming cream that I have ever tried. They're extremlely expensive for hair stying products but these are not cherry, cola or vanilla scented rockabilly pomade gels. A little goes a long way....

Re: Really, really good Cornbread

Peter Reinhart's Bacon Cornbread is pretty amazing. However, it is probably the least healthy cornbread next to "crackling cornbread". I don't feel comfortable posting the recipe here but you can find it at Leite's Culinaria website or in Reinhart's book - The Bread Baker's Apprentice or on other we...

Re: Bed linen sprays

Sam,

I use Caldrea's "Pear Blossom Agave."

It's strong and can be diluted even though I don't think they intend that. I have the laundry detergent as well and I use that for linens but I need to run an extra rinse or dilute it as well.

They're about $10 for 16oz, I think.

Prospectors "Gold Rush" Pomade

I'm always on the lookout for different brands of water-type pomade. I've tried a number of brands and I'd say that many are quite similar in both texture and hold. I find the typical varieties of scent to be vanilla and/or coconut. Others are straight-up citrus or other fruit based (cherry, etc.). ...

Re: What led you to this?

I used creams and soaps from time to time but never a DE and only a cartridge razor. I probably reverted back to canned goo from time to time as well.

In all honesty a "certain person" appeared on TV back in 2004 or 2005 and he renewed my interest in quality products.

Re: Opinions on small SUV's?

I'm happy with my Forester. I haven't had any major issues aside from the AC compressor dying early on. The guy at the dealer said it was uncommon but with so many parts on a modern car there can be duds from time to time. The car will hold its value... I think I have about 55k miles and I don't pla...
