Bonzo, they play in the Patriot League. I don't think there are any scholarships, but I could be wrong.

They've been pretty bad the past couple of years.

Thanks again. I had very satisfactory experience using Surrey back in the day. Now I'll know not to shell out for the Col. Conk.

Norcross is 20 miles NE of Atlanta. Winder is 20 miles NE of Norcross.

I recommend that you at least consider Winder, where the real estate prices are still low.

Thanks, Squire. I'll look them up on the internet to see what else they offer. I went to my local Walmart again tonight, and this time I found ten-packs of Personna for $1.54. Also, they were down to just two VDH soaps, so someone else must be using them! Do you feel that VDH and Col. Conk are essen...

I like the Gillette 7 O'clock brand enough that I'm placing an order for five hundred tomorrow. Squire, 30 years ago I lived in Pittsburgh, and I had a friend who I don't think had much money. His treat to himself was to shave every day with a brand new Gillette Super Blue Blade. He used them one t...

Squire, when you say "similar", how good a blade are we talking about?

I can afford $20. for 100 great blades, so I don't need to save a nickel a blade for a month of bad shaves. But I am curious as to how good the blades sold in common stores are.

Wendell, thanks for the heads up. My Walmart doesn't sell any DEs, but it does have a decent supply of VDH brushes and soap.

We have a second Walmart not too far away, so I'll drop by some time to see what they carry.

The price at Rite-Aid

Since I have become interested in DE shaving a month ago I have been researching DE blades on the internet, and find that good blades can be had for $20.00 for 100.

Imagine my surprise when I found Gillette DE blades at my local Rite-Aid, 10 for $9.99!

Tom Wilkerson was a hall-of-fame quarterback for the Edmonton Eskimos back in the 70s. I met him once. Nice guy. Tom Wilk IN son, yes, he played in the first football games I can remember watching as a kid. NTS, I stand corrected. Good thing I didn't make a bet! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Wil...

Congratulations Alfred!

What is the shipping on 100 blades to the US? I'm concerned that it might be as much as the blades themselves.

I work very near a mall with two Bath and Body Works stores (one on each level), so I stopped by today and picked up a tube of the Bigelow with eucalyptus oil (Proraso green). Like your experience, Killian, the four tubes in stock were on the back of the shelf near the wall; but the salesclerk found...

I was given a jar of C-M sandalwood maybe ten years ago, and put it aside and never used it. I came across it maybe five years ago and tried it. It lathered so poorly that I figured it wasn't supposed to lather. I've used it as a brushless shave cream a couple of times since. But I still have the ja...

Where in NC are you? There are a lot of SMFers in NC, myself included. I'm in Four Oaks, 40 miles east of the Raleigh/Durham airport, near Smithfield, smack in the middle of tobacco and sweet potato country! We have a Bath and Body Works outlet in Smithfield. I found a website yesterday which said ...

Thanks for your prompt responses, guys. Gordon, it's interesting that you should mention Barbasol because that is what I am using now. As you can see from my post count, I am new here, and have just started to read the many threads. It never occurred to me to use distilled water. I'll give it a try.

May I assume that if it doesn't say "brushless", i

I used hard shaving soap with a brush for a number of years. But five years ago I moved to an area with very hard water, and I can't get a lather with the hard soap. I have recently decided to try brushless shave cream as a step up from the usual drug store chemical foam I have been using since the ...
