Just ordered a couple of tins of this. Got the orange and the barbershop. Let you know what I think. Also ordered some Valobra. These will be 3 that I have never tried. Got to take a chance every once in a while.

Bit of trivia regarding Zippo. They are now the parent company of the WR Case Company, makers of the most collected brand of pocket knives in the world.

Had my Cadillac in for service this week. It's getting older and needs replacing in the next year or so as I get ready to retire for for the third and final time.

Acqua di Parma Intensa Oud

Spent a weekend in Atlanta with my wife and was advised that I needed a little variety in my fragrance library. While she likes my Floris 89, Pen English Fern and Creed Bois du Portugal, she decided that I needed something in her words "a bit more daring". She picked out the AdP Oud. It is very dark...

Monarch of the Glen

I just finish watching all 6 seasons of Monarch of the Glen on Netflix. I really enjoyed this series and now that it's done I feel like I have lost a bunch of old friends. Well done.

I guess I am one of the "lucky' ones. My routine is always WTG, XTG, ATG and then polish as necessary. It's the only routine that has ever given me satisfactory results. Fortunately I do not have sensitive skin and have never experienced irritation problems.

I have been a life long member of the NRA. The event in CT has convinced me that there should be some restrictions on the ability of some nut case to fire off that many rounds in such a brief amount of time. It's hard to argue that the number of "mass" shootings has increased with the availability o...

Just an aside, if there was a guy who's never worn one, and doesn't know a single acquaintance who has, how would the guy learn how to tie the thing properly? Would this be a you tube source?
