Re: Guns

Living in a small town in South Western Pennsylvania we do not have problems that I have seen on the news when it comes to police brutality and overzealousness when doing their jobs. I go see though the major problem with policing in much larger communities and big cities. There seems to be a whole...

Re: Face masks

Bryan, I'm with you, but sticking it to the evil big government seems preferable to concern for others in me-first America. Covid-19 is real, masks actually help protect those around you, and not wearing one is no great demonstration of liberty but rather a perfect embodiment of me-first ideology. ...

I picked a very different Shavemac today - the 22368. I love the long handle in the sexy art deco shape. The knot is a bit soft for me these days, but I'm happy to use it for old times' sake; it can stay on the shelf.
I love that brush. Too bad Bernd doesn’t make it anymore.

Re: A Hairy Situation!

Actually sounds like a socially useful fate for bores! I went straight to the Beaufort, given it had not been used and I didn't remember ever buying it. Like any pure brush, it manages to have very prickly tips and no body in the shafts of the hair. Neither comfortable, nor effective, which is not ...

Re: Guns

Defunding (abolishing) local police is an ignorant concept. The fact is that states have rights that may or may not be chosen (by the state) to reserve to themselves. A state relinquishing any of the delegated powers simply tosses that power back to other state agencies or the Fed. The vacuum won't...

Re: Broke my Moss Scuttle

I feel a bit silly, but I wonder what, or whose Anniversary is involved? It doesn't seem to say on Sally's website. I wondered as well, but because I bought it for the slate colour I didn’t call Sara to find out. Perhaps it celebrates the launch of the first Moss scuttle, which you designed and com...

Broke my Moss Scuttle

This morning I started my shave in a truly negative way: I broke my Classic Moss Scuttle. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) I’d had for nearly 13 years, being a 60th birthday gift from my son. I used the scuttle for every shave I’ve had, except when travelling, since I’ve had it. Needless to say, it’s a great loss ...

Re: Guns

Although from my basic army training I am trained to use revolvers and pistols, a Lee Enfield 303, an FN FAL battle rifle and a Bren gun and have used shotguns for clay pigeon shooting, I have little interest in owning or using any type of firearm. However, if I were to have one type of firearm to “...

Re: Face masks

Tim, you've made an excellent point by the example --- one does what one chooses, including making bad decisions such as those you've listed. The point you've highlighted is that we, the individual, are the decision-makers, many times to our own detriment, including the decision to disobey the law....

Re: Face masks

No offense taken.😎 It's not just me of course. Our human nature is obviously infinitely complex. Somewhere on the scale are those who abhor change and authority in most forms. Somewhere in the other direction are those who covet authority however they gain it. "wear your mask!" vs. "H*ll No!" There...

My wife’s late aunt lived in Lake Charles, Louisiana. She was a skilled Cajun cook and taught me several of her recipes. Yesterday, I made a pot of her chicken and sausage gumbo. First, dice an onion, a green bell pepper and three stalks of celery ( the “trinity” of Cajun cooking.) Place all the ve...

We’re going to give Hoppin’ John a try tonight. It was a great success: both my wife and I enjoyed it very much. We had the leftovers today at room temperature and without rice or any additions and they were even more tasty than when freshly cooked. I made it with canned black eyed peas and America...
