Re: Mince Pies etc

Gary - that used to be something you could do. If you still can that would, indeed, be best. Many years ago, when I first started flying as part of my work - when you registered for the frequent flyer programs for the various airlines there was a box for meal choice. Kosher was one of the choices. T...

Re: Gillette Scores an own goal

Let's face it - we seem to be bombarded with the notion that men are not much more than buffoons. How many articles have been published in recent years denigrating men? How many TV shows depict men as dolts barely able to have any kind of rational thought? We hear a lot about the "war on women" but ...

Re: Black boots - necessary, dispensable or something in between

Sam, with khaki I refer brown or tan footwear.

With denim I can see either color working.

But that's me.

Re: Schick Proline P-30 (Artist Club size) blades

Gary, may I assume these are for your General? I am very interested in your take on them - I have been tempted to buy some as well. On a separate, but related note - is the General available in silver, but NOT the more expensive stainless steel? I have the black aluminum, curious if they did a silve...

Re: Marseille/Aleppo/Castille soaps, Yardley, Mitchells Wool Fat

I used the Kirk's for a while while we were still in Georgia. I liked it, never really noticed that it dried my skin, though. I remember that someone mentioned Kirk's being good for the body, but poor for the face (really old SMF thread). Up until a few weeks ago I was using MWF bar soap. Very nice ...

Re: Cyril Salter solid shaving soap (tallow)

Is this only available in lavender? I notice they have several different scents in the cream (including rose!), but not for the soap.

Also - I note that he offers two sizes - 100 and 70, both seems to be tallow-based. Am I missing something?

Re: Tiger making a comeback

Not a Tiger fan. Not that I don't think he is a talented golfer - for he is. I would kill to have even the poor game he has struggled with over the last few years. I quit tracking him after his caddy waded into the gallery and assaulted that photographer. The golfer was in the wrong, but his caddy's...

Plus, he really loved his Gem razors! I wonder what he would have thought of the modern day General,...

Re: Homemade Cedarwood soap - 4 years old

I remember when we discussed this back then.

It sounds magnificent.

I was making my own bath soap back then - and have the feeling I found/got that recipe as a PM, but then I foolishly blew up all my old messages.

What a loss...

I get what he did. He sets it high, then the buyer who wants it makes an offer and the seller can accept and do the deal. I sold a batch of tools once - had offers coming in all the time.Some I accepted, some I counter-offered. One company offered a fair price for the balance I had left over. Good w...

Re: Cannibidiol CBD - what's up with this stuff?

I’m just not sure I buy the “gateway drug” argument. I wonder about this, too, sometimes. I never tried it - not once - but had a lot of friends who did while we were growing up. We would have fun weekends, and I always drove. Kept them safe, I guess. They were my friends before I discovered that t...

Re: Seen at a Target in Colorado

Morning all,

The brush was badger.

And it was a CVS pharmacy, I guess, but for sure a Target store I was shopping in.
