Re: Manchurian White badger by Elite Razor

Bill_K, even though I'm enjoying the new Manchurian badger in addition to the most recent synthetics, I have gone through my brushes and removed quite a few from my favorites that I'm keeping. Here is a list of 32 brushes that did not survive, and may eventually find their way onto the BST thread in...

Re: Shaving soap or cream of the day

30 shaves on the Tabac stick so far, and probably almost a hundred more before it goes away.

Re: Joke of the Day

I was the best man to a wedding one time, that was pretty good. Pretty good title, I thought, best man. I thought it was a bit much. I thought we'd have the groom and a pretty good man. That's more than enough. If I'm the best man, why is she marrying him?

Re: What made you smile today?

The one that makes me smile and even laugh is the TV commercial for an insurance company that shows the family sitting around the living room with Grandpa sleeping in his chair while his snoring is a nicely done rendition of The Flight of the Bumblebee through his nose. Then along comes his grandson...

Re: Nascar 2018

The 2018 Nascar Championship race will take place one week from today (November 18th) in Miami. Two of my favorite drivers - Martin Truex Jr. and Kevin Harvick - will be among the top four contenders who are eligible to win the championship. I'll be pleased if the winner happens to be one of them. I...

Cleveland Browns day in the sun - portent of things to come?

Against the Falcons today Baker Mayfield and the Browns are playing like a real authentic pro football team. I am so happy to be able to watch this game and this team, knowing their recent history of losing. I've only been a fan of the Browns since they picked up Mr. Mayfield who walked on at Univer...

This is a flashback to my SOTD on this day one year ago, Nov. 11, 2017. The only difference from today's shave was the Made-Rite TGN Finest brush.

Those are some impressive representatives of a bygone era. I wonder whether someone with the surname Penhaligon may have laid hands on that very bottle at some point.

Re: Is SMF losing its vigour?

I've been watching a very frustrating football game (neither team has a good defense) and staying warm (we tied our record low here last night). The game's not over yet, and there's a basketball game coming on in a couple of hours.
