Kris, Welcome to the forum, I am in Richmond, just down I-95 from you, and passed by on Wednesday coming back from a DC/MD/PA vacation/fishing trip. There is another shaver in West Point not too far from us as well. Marshall, where did you fish on the James? Above the falls or below? I try to fish t...

Chocolate scented shave cream

The wife and kids and I went to Hershey Pa for a few days this week and while looking through their store outside of the park, I found a Chocolate scented shave cream. I took a sniff and it smelled like the real thing, however the 25.00 price tag was not what I would call cost effective for such a s...

Found the Red Truck wine. Not bad.....also found out thru the local wine superstore that the 2 Buck Chuck is only sold on the left coast, so no chance of my ever trying it. Actually you can get "Charles Shaw" at most (all??) Virginia Trader Joe's. My dad picks up a case or two when he comes to visi...

I hope we all don't have this preconcieved notion that this Brittany looks liek another Brittany.
The fact that she is into mens shaving products and cologne doesn't hurt (or help??) either.. :wink: :twisted:

Art, If you want to make it real exciting, choose all of your shaving items in the dark. Who knows what kind of scent and fragrance combinations you'll put together! Randy I could just see it now, in the darkness grabbing a bottle of my wife’s feminine hygiene spray. I could go skipping into work s...

I agree there usually is too much to do in the morning let alone setting time aside for photography as well! I choose my products for the next day's shave in the evening after my shower. I then photograph the setup, put the image on my home PC, and also email it to my office PC. If I have time befo...

I wish I had a camera to upload pics of my setup. They are all so nice. However, I leave at 4:30 in the am, when I am working days and try to keep the lights off, or to a minimum so I don't wake my wife or kids. Plus, I think a flash might startle her and she might wonder what the heck I am taking a...

AACJ - Marine is used to refer to scents that have aquatic smells. Most of the newer designer colognes that are availalbe in department stores (i.e. Aqua Di Gio and Cool Water) are in this category.
