Re: The Gentlemen's Quarter - SALE

Hello Colleen! It's great to see you back in business. I clearly remember following your business a few years back, and at the time was dismayed when you had to shut down. Thanks for posting the news here at SMF. I wish you all manner of success.

Re: Amazing NBA finals game

In games such as these, I just sit back and enjoy every minute. I have no stake in the outcome, but the competition is ferocious. I admire the excellent performance of the Raptors after losing early.

Re: Brush of the day

Gary, I notice the SilkSmoke gets more use for you than the Synbad restore/reknot you did a few months back. Do you mind giving a little info on whether you prefer the Silksmoke and why? I am enjoying my Synbad but do like the look of the Silksmoke knot. See my response in Shaving Brushes. http://f...

Re: Zoysia

It sounds as though I shouldn't be expecting very good results this time If it doesn't do well in hot dry climates. My planting was bad timing. We've had record rains in the past week or so since I planted it. Torrential soaking rains are never helpful with seeds. I've been curious about St. Augusti...

I hope he took our advice and found a Krona! If so, I'm sure he's still using it and will continue to do so for years to come. 8)

Re: FS: Sebum Gold Soap/Serum Set - Final Reduction
