I have a tube of the stuff, and I enjoy it. The scent is the same as the soap or AS splash. Also, just like the splash, the scent hangs in there all day. It is a bit on the greasier side, but if you use a small amount it isn't a problem. I would say it is very similar to T&H balms as far as consiste...

I wouldn't be surprised if they sell email addresses. One thing that astounded me when going through the online forwarding process was that after you enter your new address, they load a page with 40 or 50 different magazines and catalogs for you to start receiving. It bothered me that USPS was shill...

There is a Michael Palin travelogue, I think it is in Full Circle, where he gets a straight razor shave in India (I can't remember if it is in Calcutta, but it might be). The barber is set up for business under a tree in the middle of a park. The best part, though, is that the barber is blind!

gimmickry

I came across an interesting page about the X-ray craze of the turn of the century - people slapped the term on anything and everything. Here is one that makes the new Fusion gimmick seem a bit tame http://i792.photobucket.com/albums/yy201/hhenders82/F18medium.gif Apparently this is the "Finest Blad...

My dad uses the gin soaked raisins trick for back pain. Eats 10 or 12 each morning before his stretching exercises. He claims it works. Has been doing it for probably 20 years.

Martin,

I am going to have to check out that Ryback. These Peter Stokkebye tins are trying to drain my wallet - running about 40 bucks for a 10.5 oz tin.

What kind of cut is the Ryback?

Edit - just answered my own question by visiting the site. Extra fine cut. I will have to give it a try. Thanks!

Kav, I have found a great difference between the EDT and EDC. The EDT (in the spray bottle) had a much different scent (and in my olfactory ineptitude, I couldn't possibly begin to describe it). The EDC is on par with the aftershave and soap. Perhaps it was just my experience, but I bought the EDT l...

Just pick up a copy of the federal tax code for some leisure reading. I'm sure it will be easy to find your answer :D

This fellow's desperation is, I think, indicative of public frustration.

I hope we can get this great country of ours up and rolling again soon. Rational and level-headed problem solving is always an option. I wish this fellow had seen that.

pipe tobacco doesn't have to be heavy Squire,I did try the lighter stuff but it just didn't sit well. I believe it was a mental issue - I just didn't like the cut. American Spirit ryo does a similar, thick cut tobacco, and it seemed a rather heavy smoke to me as well. It is probably just in my head...

Pipe tobacco will suffice, is still relatively cheap, and of the highest quality. I have been rolling my own for a couple of years now, and bought a pound of the pipe tobacco when the price increase hit. No dice, for me - it was a bit too heavy. Martin, I'd like to hear what brands you found for a ...

I would agree with you. No matter what soap I try, my face is always drier (dryer? more dry?) than before I shaved. Same goes for bath soaps, at least in my experience - though I have never tried those new-fangled gels and body washes (seems to me those are approaching loofah territory, which is a s...
