    NCoxSTL AAACK!

    Bad coffee, horrible non-recyclable cups that pile up like mountains. 'Nuff said. I do think, though, that some third party vendors have developed recyclable cups for the Keuring. Still lousy coffee.

    Yup, I have a reusable filter cup for my Keurig in the office at work. Use it in a pinch when working outside of normal hours. A decent grind from home in the filter cup is better that the usual Keurig stuff, but still just okay.

    Yeah... I can’t discuss. I don’t use ‘em. I have no use for ‘em.

    I was nearly seven hundred posts behind when I logged in this (yesterday now) morning. Somehow, between random bits of life mixed in with naps, I managed to catch it up. It has been a rough week for some of you guys, and I said a prayer, or had a good thought for each of you as I was reading through.

    So back to January and shavettes:

    It has been an insane couple of weeks at work, and between the hours and the cold temps, I have only been shaving a couple times a week. This was my first shave at home in two weeks, and I enjoyed it a lot. Soap and brush were chosen from a pool at random, and the aftershave was picked as a Wife’s A-Lister. One more Dealer’s Choice shave at home tomorrow, and then it’s another week in the Best Western.

    That is a great looking Feather razor. I had forgotten how nice the scales look. :happy096:

    @Bama Samurai I have had coffee from k cups that was drinkable. I think all the waste sucks. We had one at a casino I worked at. It was amazing how many cups we went through. I prefer perculator coffee any way. If I did have one I would have the reusable cup. (As usual be sure to read in a capt. Kirk voice)

    Back to the Nuàvia Rossa for a relaxing Sunday shave. The big boar whipped up the Rossa into a rich slick lather. Three passes paying attention and skin stretching had the baby in sight. Since I had the time, I buffed my lower right neck and caught the little guy. I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday.

    98E9B7EA-472F-4B4E-9DD8-F7D2E1C571EF.jpeg Prior to starting my journey to review 40+ soaps in this thread, Catie’s was one of my favorite soaps. Now, having sampled some of the best of the best of today’s artisan soaps, it’s dropped down the list a bit. Still a good soap, but the slickness, protection, and latherability of some other artisans really outshines it for me.

    Thank you, Mark. It is one of my favorite handles, just for the grip alone.

    That really is a great looking knot. It will be interesting to see how it breaks in; more bloom, hold its shape, etc....
