Re: Any thoughts on the use of shaving oils with a DE razor

I echo Gary, but the one commercial oil that I tried didn't do much for me. I much preferred the lubricity and cushioning of soap. If it works for you then great.

Re: What's for supper?

I've been eating much healthier lately. Sodium is one of the things I'm dodging and cold cuts are loaded with the stuff. Then there is the cholesterol and sat' fat in many of them, again, things not on my diet. So what to do about them? Make my own. I bought an entire top round packer and on getting...

Re: Here, fishy, fishy....

Bryan, as far as grilling/frying/baking/broiling, assuming everything is hot and ready to go, 7 minutes per inch of thickness no matter the fish, but one eyes and signs prevail. If it flakes it's done. Go beyond that and it's getting overdone. With salmon if the fat denatures (you'll see it weep) th...

Re: Do I need a boar brush?

Is a boar better? No. Is it worse? No. They're different and they are quite inexpensive so I'd go for it. I don't know what you have available in Bulgaria, but here in the USA Omega brand has the most bang for the money spent and the last few I bought were pre broken in. Otherwise it can take quite ...

Re: Ear muffs (sound reduction)

You'll get no argument from me on wearing hearing protection Gary. Many years ago folks didn't wear hearing protection when shooting and I'm old enough to be one of them. Then I smartened up. There are times when I wear electronic muffs that cut out at high Db AND earplugs. I put the e-muffs at full...

Re: A Guessing Game

I was thinking alignment of some sort but that makes no sense. So I'm guessing they push the blade off of the bed of the razor to make it easier to grasp. Not that I ever thought that was a problem.

Re: Cannibidiol CBD - what's up with this stuff?

The evidence that CBD works is so numerous today that to deny it is absolutely ludicrous. It would be like standing in the ocean and claiming one can't find salt water. But it can't be studied here in the US because of the classification that it's in federally, and if one could do a study there woul...

Re: Cannibidiol CBD - what's up with this stuff?

Gary, my understanding of it is that CBD doesn't need to lead to anything heavier, anymore than aspirin does. Don't confuse the high from THC with CBD which produces no high at all.

Re: Cannibidiol CBD - what's up with this stuff?

When the compound CBD that was asked about is discussed with THC containing "cannibis" thrown into the mix, it's discussing apples and oranges. Maybe the CBD can be smoked (I just don't know) but that's not the way I understand it to be administered. Too, there is no high as experienced with the THC...

Re: Cannibidiol CBD - what's up with this stuff?

Gary, I have very little information regarding it, so I'm not the person to answer your question in depth. My limited understanding is that it's the "medical" portion of the active substances in medical marijuana. THC would be the high that's associated with the plant. I haven't tried it yet and if ...

Re: Choux Pastry

The difference between gougere and cream puffs is that the eclairs are piped into a log shape. If you don't have the ability to pipe the dough ( a baggie with a corner cut out will do), cream puffs can be made identical in taste to an eclair (different shape). Cream puffs only require a spoon to mak...

Interesting! They look delicious! I never thought to do something like that with them. Whenever we have a "bring a dish" type of event to go to I always bring a version of them.

I forgot just how screwey that method was until I watched that video yet again. Let me be more specific, tried to watch the video again. I have never been able to get through it due to his "cult terminology". For me it's a turn off each and every time.
