Re: Astronomy Anyone??

As a kid I would lie on my back in the backyard with my handheld refractor staring at Antares and sometimes the moon. Always tempted to get a 6" mirror or even an 8". Hereabouts there's way too much light pollution to justify the investment. Instead, I get some satisfaction with the occasional viewi...

I've been using a tie-on version made from an old t-shirt, pattern from the CDC website. Yesterday I bought a few ear-loop versions, with half the cost going to a local food bank.

Re: Joke of the Day

Quarantine humor (no politics). Half of us are going to come out of this quarantine as amazing cooks, the other half will come out with a drinking problem. Still haven't decided where to go for Easter.. the living room or the bedroom. I don't think anyone expected that when we changed the clocks we...

Re: Gillette Heated Razor

And here I was dipping and rinsing my razor in hot water. How absolutely primitive of me.

Just to be clear, I was poking fun at the product, not the article which I thought was well-written and comprehensive.

Re: Alcohol based aftershave

I'm not much of an aftershave guy although I've picked up three bottles this year (Spanish, German, Swiss). Before that burst of spending, I'd only pick up a bottle of Aqua Velva Classic Ice Blue just to have something on hand and because I'm cheap. Walking out in the cold air with AV was a nice com...

Re: Is SMF losing its vigour?

Since you asked, the idea was to pair different soaps/creams with types of women. Such as highly mentholated soaps with women who rise early, pour coffee into you, and drag you out for a run. I didn't take it much further. Just an idea.

Re: Joke of the Day

A little old lady was walking down the street dragging two large plastic garbage bags behind her. One of the bags was ripped and every once in a while a $20 bill fell out onto the sidewalk. Noticing this, a policeman stopped her, and said, "Ma'am, there are $20 bills falling out of that bag." "Oh, r...

Had me worried for a minute. DRH is one of my favorite soaps, always on my to-buy list. I'm firmly in the tallow camp.

Veterans Day 2018

At the eleventh hour of the 11th day of the eleventh month

One hundred years ago today. Something to think about.

I live in the central time zone and 11:00 is coming up in 25 minutes. I'll observe it six hours later than France.

Re: Is SMF losing its vigour?

I have an idea for a thread but I'm still formulating it. Has something to do with women.
