Re: Tiger making a comeback

Personally I haven't paid him any attention for what seems like 10 years. Maybe he's been getting more attention in your area than mine. This was his first win in 5 years. I have a hunch he'll be pretty doggone popular in the coming year unless he starts losing again. My favorites are Spieth. Fowler...

Re: Domenico Caraceni 1913 and XPEC unscented

With the recent disappearance of XPEC it seems that both of these excellent Italian shaving cream products are no longer available.

Tiger making a comeback

It appears that Mr. Woods is in a position to win today's final round of the 2018 TOUR Championship golf tournament. Good for him. He has overcome some monumental personal and health issues in the past few years.

Re: Ear muffs (sound reduction)

After these few weeks of using my new muffs, I am wondering why it took me so long.

Re: SE expert an SMF treasure

Paul, which slants are you currently using in your rotation? Have you had an opportunity to check out the currently available slant head that is sold by Italian Barber? I think he calls it 37 German because it is a clone of the old original 1937 German Bakelite slant razor.

Re: Homemade Cedarwood soap - 4 years old

Yesterday I stumbled onto my old files that contain the recipe and the step by step directions I used. I recall I had a lot more energy back then. Even if I could make myself some soap again, when would I ever get around to actually using it? I'm sitting on 8 (soon to be 7) 5 year old tubs of some r...

Re: Review - The Art of Shaving

I noticed that a while back AOS offered a Vetiver Citron fragrance shaving cream for a limited time, but never got around to getting one for myself.

Re: Libraries

This reminded me of a time when I had a job that allowed me to travel throughout the state. I've always enjoyed browsing among the shelves and was in the habit of visiting the local libraries whenever I could. They would always have a different assortment of my favorite authors, rare books, or new r...
