I gave up on deodorant several years ago, old spice being what i used. In any event, the allure of old spice is gone for me. I just realized that now when i read richards post. back in the day, the mere mention of old spice shaving soap would have sent me into a tizzy of anticipation. Right at this...

When Old Spice shave soap is released in the traditional glass mug it will be complete.

Having said that though, the car I'd like my wife to get is a Subaru Outback, but she won't hear of it for her own murky reasons...sigh :cry: :cry: My brother's Subaru STi WRX spent the first month in and out of the dealership because they couldn't find why it kept throwing a code (something about ...

Richard, you must have gotten one of those Monday cars! :D My 2010 Tundra pickup is a beast. I have no complaints *knocking on wood*. I was considering the 2013 Tundra, because we wanted a full size. I was comparing with the F-150. There is no comparison, the Ford beats it in many ways, and I never...

Toyota quality isn't what it used to be. I just traded in my '12 Tacoma which had a random hard start issue every 3 weeks or so. It would just crank over and over for 5-10 seconds and finally start. Nobody knows what causes it, it is a somewhat common problem according to Tacoma forums. It doesn't t...

Sort of related, but I'm recently getting into "modern" boardgames. Carcassonne, Puerto Rico, Ticket to Ride, San Juan, etc. Really enjoying it.

Yeah, Clive, they took the series off streaming. Netflix continues to go down the drain as content owners continue to up the price for their products. Canadian Netflix is just like US Netflix, only 1000% more disappointing. I continue to pay for it in the hopes that it slowly gets better, which it ...

In Canada (this part, anyway) we refer to the grill as a bbq. I have a Weber BBQ sitting out on my deck. I looked at a Napoleon, very, very nice, but also very very expensive. I have respect for the charcoal heads, but I love the convenience of my natural gas bbq. Around here, barbecue is pulled po...

I can't stand that Samsung takes so long to update the Android OS, that really bugs me. This is a huge issue with Android. Manufacturers and Carriers all want to put their dirty fingers into Android, software skins, bloatware/crapware, you name it, so updates don't get rolled out at the same time (...

Let's just get one thing clear: The fact a smartphone is a "phone" is somewhere down the list, in fact making calls has become so secondary that cell providers are giving minutes away and charging mostly for data.

Congrats Murray, from a fellow SMF old-timer. How things have changed... Back then MWF was 'just discovered' and had to be ordered from Wool retailers in England. There were only a handful of vendors and none of them carried all of the popular shave products we now take for granted. If you were Cana...

RIM announced today a launch date of January 30 for the BlackBerry 10. If I weren't so delighted with my iPhone 5, I'd certainly wait for that event and the user reviews that will immediately follow. Sneak peeks and leaked reports are already giving this phone very high marks. Its web browser, for ...

I'm all ready for winter with snow tires, 4x4, and a new snowblower/tractor. Problem is, we don't have any snow. Yet. As for snow tires and rims, I ordered from tirerack.com in the US. Even with shipping/duty/etc., it STILL works out cheaper than buying up here. I bought myself a set ready-mounted o...
