17 September 2014 – Shaving, Shaving Soap, and Improvisation

So, I guess I could also have titled this something like “Wet Shaving – The Adventure Continues” and it would have worked  It’s definitely different from electric shavers and nowhere near a cartridge system.  It takes skill, patience, persistence, and no little bit of courage as you put a really rather sharp and minimally protected […]

9 September 2014 – Gillette Tech – First Shave

So, I just had my first shave with that new Gillette Tech razor I just got.  I made sure to prep my beard a bit better by keeping it wet during my shower and shaving afterward this time.  Nothing fancy involved here – Just canned Barbasol shave foam, a Dollar General re-branded Personna blade, and […]

My New Used Razor – Early Gillette “Fat Handle” Tech

So, some of my readers might recall from a previous post that I’m switching from electric shavers to old school double edge razors for a few reasons.  I’d even ordered an inexpensive razor from eBay.  I’d thought I was getting a Weishi which had good reviews, but it was actually a Nanjie.  That inexpensive razor is just […]

2 September 2014 – Switching Shaving Systems

So, I’ve had a bit of an issue with shaving lately.  My electric shaver has always given me issues, but it’s getting worse.  It’s causing irritation, ingrown hairs, and missing a bunch of spots among other things.

10 May 2014 – Keepers!

Ya know, things have just been busy and cruddy here.  Between losing my job, job hunting, cutting daycare back to two days a week due to costs, and a whole bunch of nasty stuff going on behind the scenes, I’m about to lose what part of my mind I had left. Today was the first […]

3 May 2014 – Finally Fishing Again

So, I finally got to go fishing again this evening. The last time I got to go was Friday, April 25. Part of the problem has been weather related (winds gusting to 45 MPH or so) and the other problem has been that things are BUSY with job hunting and other stuff happening behind the […]

Job Hunting – Again

Well, today was supposed to be a day off.  I was going to play with Ember, fix her breakfast and maybe we could meet up with Cindy for lunch.  Maybe do… Something. Sadly, it was not to be.  I will not share details here (not many if I wanted to), but suffice it to say […]

Fishing – Getting Started All Over Again

So, I’ve decided to get back into fishing again :)  Before hauling off and getting all new everything, I looked around to see what I could find around the house that survived a few moves. One thing I was able to find was my tackle box :cool:  There was quite a bit of stuff in […]
