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...

Re: Harris soap reformulation

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.

Re: Elections

My scorecard shows more Ws than Ls so I'm reasonably happy. Now I'm looking forward to seeing the gazillion candidate signs being taken down. Things were starting to restrict outdoor air flow.

Re: Praying for boys stranded in Thai cave. Rescue under way.

I was a caver a long time ago and did horizontal, vertical, and even paddled a rubber raft in an underground stream (with a guy who couldn't swim). Also been through one emergency, similarly caused by heavy rains. Our strongest female caver had her legs give out while at the bottom of a 510 foot pit...

Aqua Velva redesign

I was getting low on my supply of AV so I stopped at Target for a new bottle. And it was a new bottle, in honor of AV's 100th anniversary. I picked up one of the two remaining and came home to compare the two designs. Maybe I'm resistant to change but I prefer the old bottle. Classier fonts, IMO. ne...

That's been my finding. Didn't actually expect it to bloom. Okay, maybe a little.

Re: Haslinger shave soap

Added a puck of Haslinger Sandalwood to a recent order. Definitely a small diameter. I'm planning on using it in an empty Cella container.
