This old world needs more miracles like this, for sure.
It has been fascinating to follow this story as it has unfolded. The fact that all were rescued with only a single fatality is indeed miraculous.

Re: Canada Day

Glad to read that they closed. I wish they did that here in the US too. I have one other wish about July 4th and that is it becomes part of a weekend. This year it fell on a wed, so of course tuesday is wasted because everyone is geared towards getting out early and thursday is shot because everyon...

Re: One of many favorite songs from the past

Claire De Lune by Claude Debussy.

That classic and old enough to qualify as one of many favourite songs from the past?

Re: Face lathering and brush loading (soap)

I've always kind of done this hybrid method where I build up initially on the puck/cake of soap, then take the brush to my face. I got to this point as I focused on getting WMF lather right, and this is where I landed.

Re: World Cup 2018

The round of 16 has been one of the best initial knock-out stages in the Word Cup in my recent memory. Poor Japan loosing on the last kick to a vastly superior, but clearly intimidated Belgium team. Today's England-Columbia hopefully will be a good one -- not that I am biased ...... :wink: Even thou...

Wendell, great to hear from you; it’s been awhile.
Thanks Bryan -- nice to be posting. Not sure how much time I'll get here as I am between consulting gigs at the moment. I seem to get focused so much when I am with clients that I just don't have it in me to check SMF regularly.

Re: The state of the current English Shaving soaps

The Mühle certainly looks identical in size and shape to the EJ puck I have. Mine is a few years old and still smells as good and lathers as well as the first day I broke open the box.

Re: BBQ Grills and more specifically, Kamados

We have always had gas - and currently own a Weber Genesis with a direct line to our natural gas hookup from our home. Very economical, and much cleaner than a grill. Our oldest son does wondrous things with charcoal - smoking, slow cooking, the lot. We are fans of heavy-duty marinating and get good...

Re: What bath soap are you using right now?

Currently, we are just finishing a boutique bar of Lavender/Peppermint soap soured locally and available through our local spa. Usually, we are MWF and Imperial Leather fanatics.
