No... I am being very selective and finding good buys on the Internet. Just have to be patient and shop around. For example, I picked up an excellent 1958 Super Speed for $16.00. Ed Ah, I ask because I have found some outstanding deals on some great razors in C'vill, Northern Neck and Richmond.... ...

They sell it and have been for the last 7 years at a local apothecary in Bon Air, VA. Don't know who's been buying it but I've see product turnover.

I do like their lip balm though.

So are the Merkur blades made in the same place and way as the other brand they featured?

I at least got to see where my Progress was made too.

Yeah, my wife can sniff out a great deal on anything. She spends hours sifting through coupons, then only spends 14.00 on 100 dollars worth of food at the grocery store.

Just as an FYI, my wife says she waits until she finds a coupon for the brush heads in the Sunday paper. Now this is important too....she ALSO goes to the manufacturer website and looks for a coupon directly from the manufacturer as well, (she said it might even be a rebate on the brush heads) but s...

It's noisy in my head when I am using it but my wife says she doesn't hear it when I brush my teeth in the morning, and that's comparing it to the Crest Spin-Pro I had used for a few years.

When I take it out of my mouth, it's very quiet when it's on, much more so quieter than the Crest.

I'd been using the Crest Spin-Pro for a few years now and my dental hygenist noticed. (I believe I posted about it here on SMF a few years ago) For my most recent birthday, 2 months ago, I recieved a Phillips Sonicare, the highest rated one in Consumer Reports. On my latest visit to the dentist, jus...

Is it possible, along with technique, that you "predisposed" yourself that it will be horrible because you didn't like the smell? (Or you DID like the smell, I can't tell from what you wrote). From my experience, all the T&H creams I have used perform the same, they all just have different scents, s...

While in Memphis, if you have a good heart, go to Dyers Hamburgers on Beale Street. They deep fry their hamburgers. So what, they deep fry them, you say? Anyone can do that. However, they have been using the same oil to fry their burgers in for the last 100 or so years. They clean the oil, but never...

She gave me some excercises to do and said to lay off doing stuff with that elbow for a while, but that if it continued to hurt, I could come in and s...

I used to have those types of shaves when I used my Feather AC. What ended it was a gentle hand. I just barely keep the blade on the skin, with a thin layer of shaving cream. Trying not to put ANY pressure from the blade to the skin. I also keep the blade about as parallel to the skin as possible to...

We HAD someone that clipped her toe nails at the desk once...it is a shared desk with up to 12 employees rotating through every 5 weeks.

We put an end to that very quickly.
