    Got home from a weeks vacation and had some goodies waiting for me;

    A Slim (seen HERE) in very good condition! Lovely!

    And an Executive that needs some cleaning, but otherwise in excellent condition!

    (+ a dissapointment, a small thing that didn't live up to the description... not a biggie but very sad :( )

    My skates finally arrived in the correct size, they are pretty nice rides....
    the big 100mm wheels are fast and smooth out the rough stuff / cracks in the pavement :cool:

    Pictures coming soon, but....

    I stopped in at the Truefitt & Hill store in Chicago... Needless to day, my credit card melted! Pics soon.

    The folks that work there are really great, too.

    And... my brother gave me a tube of Speick to try! A shaving extraveganza this week! :)

    great aftershave and blades!

    yesterday, a nice little package that caught me by total surprise!!!!! :eek: :eek:

    2x Hega aftershave bottles (from Sweden, and very nice!)
    2x packs Bic blades (from Greece)

    here's what the Hega stuff looks like:

    I gave one bottle to Armand, with a pack of the Bics, so let's hope he likes them!

    I bought a new tripod (Manfrotto Neotec 458B) and head (Manfrotto 468MGRC2). The sweet thing is it uses no leg locking collars, levers, knobs, or twists. I ordered it on Monday from Adorama and it arrived in Southern France on Wednesday. Even with the UPS shipping fees and the French customs duty, I saved about $150. Our retailers are a bunch of idiots. That’s more money for an Italian manufacturer, an American retailer and the French Treasury Department.

    It looks ace! But if you SAVED $150, I just have to ask how much you paid for it to begin with...
