Re: Iron, Steel and Battleships

The subject has begun to interest me. I'm going to dig a bit into the process and see how it's done. Thanks for these links.

Re: Sudoku anyone?

I'm beginning to "see" some options that have taken some time for my subconscious to understand. A couple of days ago I finally finished one with zero mistakes, which was a first for me. Of course I'm still limiting myself to the "easy" ones for the time being.

Re: What are you reading?

For a father's day gift, my daughter gave me The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka, written in 1915. I'm starting it right away.

Re: Art Of Shaving Sandalwood Cream for sale

It has been my experience that the AOS Sandalwood is bold and beautiful, if you like Sandalwood. I wouldn't describe it as subdued or unscented.

Re: What are you reading?

Following the recently read The Hero, it appeared that Lee Child recently released a (very) short story entitled James Penney's New Identity. It took about 45 minutes, and the ending was quite unexpected. In my personal opinion, this one was well worth a few minutes of reading time.

Re: What are you reading?

The Hero was a very quick and entertaining read. It turned out to be the author's intelligent and informative essay on his chosen style. It appears that it would be of interest to anyone hoping to be able to write and sell some books. Easy to read and not at all boring or technical. He has sold mass...

Re: A Hairy Situation!

Chris, I've noticed the same size-related issue about my badgers. At this stage, my 2 most admired badgers are not in the large-to-giant sized league of the likes of BK 8 and P12, which I sold off a couple of years ago. One of my current favorites is a re-knotted ancient (1950's) Made-Rite TGN Fines...

Re: A Hairy Situation!

A Simpson brush is something I've never used. Way back when John was selling off his massive collection I was tempted for a moment, but didn't bite. I'm satisfied with my small, largely reknotted, but very satisfying group of brushes, synthetic, badger, and bore. Ooops, I meant boar.

Re: SOTD June 15 - June 21

An interesting and inspiring morning shave. Being disappointed in the shaving soap I used yesterday for the first time in about a year and a half, today I picked it up and threw it away, lock stock and barrel. Gone and forgotten. :lol: Next up was Taylor's Sandalwood shaving cream. A very nice fragr...

This morning's shave highlighted 2 changes among the regulars listed below. 1. Cyril Salter's Solid Shaving Soap; 2. The Big Rooney Silvertip brush. Salter's soap is on a par with DR Harris shaving soap, with it's own not-unpleasant generic fragrance. Points added for tallow, points neutral for some...
