Re: Castle Forbes Cedarwood & Sandalwood Shaving Cream

As my halfway point has been reached with about 3 weeks remaining with the lid off the tub of Cedarwood I am surprised this morning. The ever-fading scent has become just the same as my 5 year old homemade soap to which I added cedarwood essential oil way back then. However the Castle Forbes is abou...

Re: Joke of the Day

Someone we know is vacationing in Scandinavia and messaged us with their progress. Here's a joke they passed on, and I'm sure most everyone's already heard it a hundred times, but here it is: Today we have completed actually living the joke. When you are trying to get to the bathroom you are Russian...

Vector SE by Blackland Razors

I'm solidly sticking to my General because I have the best of shaves every single day. However, just for discussion purposes, has anyone here at SMF heard of or have ever used the Vector by Blackland? Supposedly the design is unique for the sake of making a smaller and lighter head that is intended ...

Re: Ancient North American cultures

After extensive research into the origins of this phenomenon I have uncovered the missing link:
Note - this was how they got up there, and I am convinced they used giant pillows on the ground for those wishing to exit the caves.

Re: Nascar 2019

Yesterday's evening race in Virginia had an exciting finish. The two Bush brothers, Kurt in car #1 (Chevrolet) and Kyle, car 18 (Toyota) were side by side in the final lap, each desperately battling to get ahead of the other at full speed. The elder Kurt was the winner. Each could have taken a cheap...

Re: Vetiver

The MdC sample was OK and I passed it on to someone. When it comes to MdC I feel like saying I've been there, done that. Regarding my interest in vetiver, I got an unused tub of AOS Vetiver Citron shaving cream. Now discontinued but I think it's going to be a pleasant addition to my small gathering ...

Re: Tabac/Maurer & Wirtz announces a new scent

I think someone found this information on BaseNotes or some such website. I think some guys can figure out how something smells by reading lists like this, but I'm not one of them. I did see vetiver which I like, and then I saw leather, which is not my cup of tea.

Ancient North American cultures

Long ago there were cliff dwellers somewhere in the Southwestern part of the US. Anthropologists and historians have speculated as to who they were and how did their culture operate. No mystery - I imagine my own family (and everyone else's family) a wife and one or more infants, toddlers, adolescen...
