Re: Sherlock

My daughter got me started on Sherlock, can't wait for the new season! I also like Elementary, but Sherlock is my favorite of the two.

Schick ST2, sharp blades, and the thinnest head I've seen on a disposable razor. I always keep some around for my travel kit.

Our Kitchen Aid just turned 30, and it's never missed a beat. Hard to complain about that, and most models are still made in the USA.

Hi Max, I've been using the Canon system for a long time. My current camera is a 50D, with a collection of a dozen or so lenses. The XSi is a nice camera, fully capable of the kind of quality you are looking for, with the right lens. You will need a good macro lens, and that can easily cost more tha...

My grandfather used to put mothballs in the crawlspace under his wash building/ shed. He lived in the mountains in VA, varmints were a real problem, but they stayed out of his yard.

I shaved with mine this morning, it is a terrific piece. It's a mild shaver for a heavy razor, but I had no trouble getting near BBS with two passes and a little touch-up. This could definitely become a favorite.

White

I used the Proraso green yesterday, and the white(sensitve) this morning. I would say that the white lathers a bit better than the green, and has a milder smell. The menthol isn't as strong, but it still leaves a nice cooling sensation on the skin. I like the white version better.
