The labeling is welcome. My wife has a pretty severe reaction to carmine. Her eyes swell shut and if we don't get some Benedryl in her pretty fast she starts having trouble breathing.

I've been using the Kai blades (just ordered some more from dridiot) in black hadled adjustable and green Proraso. What a great combination. I think four shaves is average for me but I have gone as many as seven.

It looks alot like some that I picked up at a Dollar General store a while back. I will look again when I get home--I know that I still have a couple of them and I may have the original packaging. I'll let you know.


UPDATE:
I checked my DGs and they are not the same.

I have had very good dealings with L. Martino and Dridiot. I highly recommend both of them.

I did buy one POS from a board member but he shall remain nameless.

I tried the lathering with a stick of Palmolive that I picked up in Belgium. The lather was OK and the shave decent but nothing to write home about. I may try it again to see if I can do better.

We had safe running water and we lived out of ice chests. My neighbors across the street are looking at another week. We have run extension cords to them.

Crap! I got electricty back tonight! That's sixteen days. I like camping as much as the next manly man but this was too much. I'm getting a whole house generator. I will never be put in this situation again.

I found this on another forum: Paper towel, tissues, Q-tips, and mineral spirits are safe and reasonably effective for everything. Hot water works well for metal, but you have to be ABSOLUTELY SURE you get everything thoroughly dry and covered with a coat of oil afterward. I try not to use water on ...

I live in an older neighborhood with a lot of older trees. That makes for a lot of downed power lines. It has been ten days without power so far but we are better off than many others. Still, a hot shave with plenty of light would be nice!

We made it through without very much damage. They are telling us not to expect power to come back any time soon. There are large trees down across my street in both directions. Not that I had anywhere to go anyway.

We have lost power and the wind is really kicking up. I'm going to try to get some sleep but it is kind of hard to do with all this noise and no air conditioning. Wish me luck!

How to defeat my company computer?

My company laptop is my main computer and they have recently done something that is bugging the crap out of me. I know, I know it is their computer but it is still bugging me and I want to circumvent it somehow. They reset the computer so that I have no control over the screensaver. It automatically...

I have put crown up a few times and there is definitely a trick to it. My BIL is a builder and showed me how to do it. First, it is better if you have a finish nail gun---not a brad nailer. Cut the first piece to fit flat but up to the wall. The next piece that joins this one at the corner gets cut ...
