    I have a problem with lines 2 and 4 :). I'm going to have to be real careful with admintering this. But I', in good hands....Professor Joe from Long Island has lent me his chemistry room keys for life. I just wish there was more of it than 12 ML.

    Interesting thoughts on the brush, Keith. You don't think it will soften up at all? Very neat handle though. Is it new?
    Very nice, Barry. Not sure I've heard of the Blue Stratos before. Is it a drugstore product over there, or an artisan item?
    Yeesh, that is quite the exposed blade, Dave. Did Timeless not see fit to address the issue?
    Beautiful, Clint. Do you prefer the Cream to the stick?
    I'd take Muggy today...we dropped 12 Degrees from yesterday and have a dreary sleet this morning.
    That soap sounds very nice, Danny. Leather and Vetiver would be a nice combo. The 3oz tubs in a soap that hard aren't a bad idea, either. The 6oz tubs take forever!
    Love that razor, Jeff. Your son made that brush? He is a turner? Awesome. Love to see more of his work.
    Great job sticking to your focus, Jim! You are showing quite the willpower. Yeesh, maybe you'll make it through that NB after all...:signs002:
    It is always nice to see pics of that beautiful razor, Joe.

    Thank you Joe :). The Jeeves soap will still be around well into my Medicare years.

    Thank you Jason. I am glad Mad Max is in my collection. It really is a joy to shave with it.

    Thank you Jason... Blue stratos isn't a artisan aftershave. Some high street stores in the UK still stock it occasionally. My last bottle I purchased from eBay. Its well worth checking out if you get the opportunity to do so.

    MdC~~Rubberset~~2011 Mühle R41/Gillette Spoiler~~Jovan Musk Oil
    The Spoiler was from a just-opened NOS 10-pack still sealed in the cardboard container.
    It slid out quite
    effortlessly, as compared to old Personna 74 blades, which tend to stick.
    The Mühle cleared all 24 hour stubble from my face, thankfully sparing all epidermis.
    The frag today is supposed to be a vintage vial of Jovan Musk Oil, however,
    I am thinking one of two things.
    1) The scent had faded after almost 50 years.
    2) The seller diluted the oil with...who knows, Canola oil?
    There just is hardly any smell. :(
    Waste of money and will probably just bin it.

    jluc smelling pretty

    Thanks, Clint!
    Expanding the donut hole with each shave is keeping my motivation up. It would be nice to finish it off this month.

    You know, now that you mention it, Jason, I think you’re spot on. Maybe we should start referencing his collection as SHINY vintage! That’s fine! Jim has a nice modern vintage collection! :D
