Sign o'the times

I was recently in a trendy restaurant in Ft. Worth--yes, there are trendy restaurants there. I was seated a little distance from a table of twenty-somethings and glanced over at them just as the waiter brought them their food. I saw all of them with their heads bowed and a first thought they were sa...

Don't hesitate to look at used bikes. You can get a lot of bike for the money. Many bike shops sell used ones that came in from customers that were upgrading.

The mosquitoes are pretty fierce here in Houston and I use a product called Sting-Eze on myself and my kids. I like it a lot.

Just a side note: did you know that Noxema stands for "No excema"? I thought that was interesting.

I use the regular Noxema as a pre-shave and love it.

Great snag on the tube!

I mostly use baby powder on the jewels and the crack to prevent chafing (sp?) when biking and doing long walks in the summer here in Houston. The stuff is miraculous.

A bum blade?

I pulled out a new blade last night and it was more like pulling my beard out instead of cutting it. I pulled another one out of the package and it was great. This is the first time that this has happened to me and I was wondering if it is very common.

I went to Comedy Defensive Driving here in Houston a few years ago to get a ticket dismissed. It was a lot of fun and met all of the state's requirements. I recommend it!

The fact is that GM, Ford, and Chrysler as well as all of the other makes were simply giving the public what it wanted in terms of gigantic SUVs shouldn't be forgotten.

Neither of the cameras have problems with 2G cards. They work fine in the camera and then work fine in my HP. I'm beginning to think it may be my wife's computer that has a problem with 2G cards. Is that possible? Her computer is not that new and mine is only six months old.

Formatting an SD Card

This shouldn't be a problem but it is. I have a Canon camera that came with a 1G card. I could pull the card out and put it in my HP laptop and read all of the pictures and my wife could pull it out and read them in her Gateway laptop. Life was sweet. I bought a new 2G card and put it in the camera-...

I wouldn't say that the Kais are less sharp or less smooth than Feathers but I got a very good shave with the Kai without getting cut up like I do when I use a Feather. More forgiving? I'd say so.

L. Martino is The Man.

I really didn't take the 195 because I heard that they kind of adjust while you're using them and $45 just seemed like to much money.

Woo-hoo! Lucky me! L. Martino came through with a new Gillette long handled black adjustable. I received it today and tried it out with one of the Iridium blades that he tossed in the box. I am back in business!
