Bryan, that's been one of our favorites for a long time. We go through a lot of sauerkraut and sausage.

Re: What's for supper?

Chicken salad sandwiches. One of our family's all time favorites. Except it was just us. There were some smoked chicken breasts I had grilled earlier this summer in the freezer. 😃👍

Re: Bent Blades Beware

It makes me sad and a bit angry that the gent finds himself and his family shamed and bullied relentlessly for his expertise and skill with his stones as related to defective old razors. Regarding the razors and NOT the workman, maybe a hundred years ago more or less, the guys who shaved themselves ...

Re: Blackstone grill

We have one of those stovetop grills that covers 2 burners. When the occasion calls for it, the results are always good.

Re: Shaving soap or cream of the day

After this morning's enjoyable Joris shave, I've only got 2 more scheduled shaves with the newly-discovered (to me) Joris before the next soap comes up.

Re: I think I’m going to drink the peloton Kool-Aid

I imagine all of the peloton devotees are all a'twitter to get in line to buy one of peloton treadmills now available. 😛

In my case, I haven't yet worn out my old NordicTrac WalkFit human-powered wooden treadmill after 20 years.

Re: Joris shaving soap

Today's mail brought my (hopefully) final purchase. I located at least 3 retailers carrying it. One in France, One in Belgium, and my choice, one in the USA. None other than Colonial Drug. Shipping was fast and both the price and the shipping were reasonable. Ordered by phone. Now I have a backup! N...

Re: good sipping whiskey?

Good point Clive. :D Kind of like discussing my favorites among Kentucky whisky (4 Roses) vs Tennessee (Jack Daniels) whisky, but so far I've narrowed it down to one favorite from the neighboring Ireland and one from Scotland. Chivas Regal is far better than just about any other Scotch to my worn ou...

Re: Jameson Irish

Regarding Irish Whisky, I didn't care for the Famous Grouse as much as I thought I would. Actually poured it out after I realized just how foul it tastes. Time passed, and someone mentioned Jameson (SP?) Irish. Saw it on the shelf and that was that. Turns out it is an ideal taste for me, and the oth...
