Re: A Self Review

I've never found pushing a DE blade to do more than it can safely do to be a good thing. As you wrote you just don't know when it's had enough. I'll add that when a DE blade is used when it's getting dull it will bite. Now a SE blade can be pushed and I've never had one bite, it just stops working e...

Re: A Self Review

Yup. I call "touch" pressure. The blade needs contact (obviously) but if the skin is deformed inwards it's too much pressure. Deformed in the direction of travel is to be expected.

Re: Lung ailments - post-tobacco - causes thereof

I view marijuana smoking akin to smoking unfiltered Camel cig's on the lungs.

Folks are serving themselves up to be guinea pigs and paying $ for the "pleasure". (OK, so I'm told that smoking MJ is pleasurable, but I don't think so.)

Re: Knockoff "Taylor Pork Roll"

Gary, it's definitely not a national brand. It's made in the Philly area and is found (that I know of) in NJ and NY. Maybe other areas close by, but I don't know of it.

Re: pots and pans

If one is cooking something more or less dry, yes I think there is something better than teflon. It's a well seasoned steel pan (or well seasoned Cast Iron (CI) ). Matfer calls it black steel and it will get that way after being well seasoned. But don't use it for making sauces and such. That wet co...

Re: For Marmite lovers only

Gary, was that Taylors Pork roll? It's incredibly expensive to have shipped. When I saw the cost I didn't drop the hammer on it. Now I either wait for folks from that area to drive north or I make my own. IMO, the home made is superior since I can make it as sour as I want. Maybe my taste buds are g...

Re: For Marmite lovers only

Years ago when I heard or learned about Marmite I looked for it locally (here in Florida, USA) and couldn't find it. I had since forgotten about it until seeing this thread. But now, in the Internet age, I just checked and found it can be ordered on Amazon. Hmmmmm. I will have to give it a try next...

Re: A Variation on Eggs Benedict and a curious side dish

Interesting read. Interesting variation and I like that. Sure, Rosti would work fine. I can see it being a keeper variation, as well as the salmon. I always wring my potato shreds out something like a tourniquet applied far too tightly, but held in fabric; same way I get the water out of farmers che...

Re: Synthetic Brushes and Optimal Size

Exactly my experience before synthetics also. They're just different and ones experience with natural fiber is no longer valid as it pertains to syn' brushes. Loft as it pertains to synthetics is totally different also.

Re: What are you reading?

Unintended Consequences by John Ross (for the 2nd time)

There is a free download of the book since hard copies are extremely expensive; $60-$100 used. One does not need to be a member of the gun culture to enjoy the book.

Re: Synthetic Brushes and Optimal Size

I'll need to pay more attention to it the next time I get into my syn' brushes. At this point I don't even think about it. I just grab the next brush in the lineup and it's use is automatic.
I think the biggest knot I have is a 28.

Brian, that's what I did also. Now all of our books are available to both of us. If I recall the process was easy, once I figured out how to do it. I bet it was a family group, whatever it's called. That's how I did it. I was able to get some of them, but not all. Some of them I couldn't get so I j...

Re: Horse hair brush

I hope you take this the right way. Let ,me preface it by stating that I have allergies also, and there's simply no rhyme or reason to them. I understand. That's odd that you can't use synthetics. Most of the time it's the other way around; where folks can't use natural so they move to a synthetic. ...

Re: How do I remove the stickers, from my Semogue Brushes?

That would be acetone. It's a very harsh solvent and I think it would also remove the finish or if plastic melt it. Either way, I don't think that you'd like the result.
