Re: Who still regularly uses 3Ts / DRH / Pens soap/cream

I regularly use T&H Almond cream and Taylor's Sandalwood in my rotation. I am very low in both right now as I have used up all my stash. Need to buy some more and I've been looking at some alternatives as I have read that quality has dropped since I last purchased? Thoughts?

Re: Why buy Simpsons brushes?

I only have 3 brushes in my rotation and 2 of them are Simpson. I have a Chubby 2 in Super that I use for creams and a Duke 3 in Best for soaps. They are outstanding brushes and do the job well. My third brush is a Savile Row that handles soaps and creams equally well. I don't think you can go wrong...

Re: Need some fragrance advice

Well I ordered a few. Chanel Pour Monsieur, Caron The Third Man, Gucci Homme II, Guerlain Homme and Tom Ford Grey Vetiver. The first two arrived and I like both a lot. Thanks to you guys for your recommendations.

Need some fragrance advice

It's been a while since I've been on the forum and have lost touch with what's going on in the fragrance world. I am looking for a good signature fragrance that I can use year round and is appropriate for my big fine( :^o ) 66 year old body. I have been using Creed's Bois du Portugal but I find it a...

Checking back in after a hiatus

Been away for a while and looking forward to getting back in the grove. I've gotten a bit older and have become a little more fixed in what I like but that doesn't mean that I don't need advice. I still be asking for plenty from you learned gentlemen. :)

Re: Please Take Some Photos!

Had to show these shots of a MEAN little female Ruby Throat Hummingbird guarding the feeder after running off every male that attempts to get a little drink. I will now stop with the bird photos. http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac204/Davdini/IMG_0688_zps072c2a4e.jpg http://i900.photobucket.com/al...

Re: Please Take Some Photos!

Ok. I'll post a few. I pretty much limit my photos to things around my hobbies and I certainly don't claim to be very good at it. Here are a few shots of the gardens and birds here at Happily EverAfter. http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac204/Davdini/th_IMG_0479_zpsbefe7938.jpg http://i900.photobuc...

Re: good sipping whiskey?

The ONLY difference between Tennessee whiskey and bourbon is the fact that the whiskey goes through a charcoal filter process. This is not done to bourbons. it is called the Lincoln county process.

Netflix's House of Cards starring Kevin Spacey is back. Picks up just where things were left last year. The entire first season and the new one is available for streaming on Netflix right now. Though not as entertaining to me as the original British version it none the less provides some quality vie...

That's a loss. He was quite a talented actor. I think I enjoyed every thing that I saw him in.
