I was shopping in our local Italian bakery yesterday when lo and behold they wheeled a few trays of freshly baked hot cross buns. I scooped up half a dozen; boy, are they good.
Tornados are terrifying. When we lived in The Woodlands, (TX), which is about 30 miles north of Houston, we had a couple of close calls. We did, however, live through a direct hit by a hurricane and several severe tropical storms...not nice.
I’ve reconciled myself to the fact that DIY is not in me. I’ve tried to build, install and repair many things around the house, but I’ve always had to revert to a pro. The only task I did credibly well was painting, but my sciatica and lower back issues precludes me from doing even that now. Two of ...

Alas I fear the Raptors will succumb to the Bucks. I just hope it isn’t in 4. Yesterday’s game was very disappointing and suggests the Raptors may not have what it takes to go further.; similar to the Maple Laughs, sorry Leafs. If the Raptors continue to perform the way they have in the last 2 games...
When ever I see or hear about home reno projects I remember how good I am at writing cheques to contractors. I have never done anything decent beyond painting, and even then my ceiling / wall edges were at best atrocious. :( Good luck with all the work -- I am sure it will be phenomenal when done. ...
I use a different brush and aftershave every day except when I travel. I don’t change shaving cream until I’ve finished the tube/tub. I use the same razor, a Mach3, every day except when travelling when I use a Sensor.
Good on you for undertaking, and completing, so many tasks. We’re in the midst of major renovations at our house: new and larger kitchen, renovated the sunken family room by raising the floor and updating the fireplace, smartened up the dining room and updated the ground floor laundry room. As my wi...

I too am attracted to shaving brushes. At present I have 27 badgers, 3 boars and 4 synthetics. Obviously, badgers are my first love, but I have to say that a good boar is hard to beat. As yet I haven’t found a synthetic that satisfies me the way my badgers and boars do. In consequence synthetics are...
PS How are you making out with the flooding in the Ottawa area? None of our family is affected (thank goodness). This is something that happens every year we have heavy snow or high amounts of freezing rain as the ground get over saturated (mostly clay in Ottawa), and can't hold the water so water ...
Wendell, congratulations on taking up fountain pens again. I’ve been avid collector of vintage and modern fountain pens for many years. At the moment I have over 100 of the beasties; I don’t like to count them as this triggers an urge to calculate how much money I have tied up in them. My collection...

This morning I cracked a tub of re-formulated Body Shop Maca Root shaving cream. It’s as good as ever. One of the best deals available.

This thread reminds me of an episode from March 1979 of Fawlty Towers (a John Cleese Classic), “Waldorf Salad”. Absolutely hilarious. So, where do you get your Waldorfs from?
