    Dog tag found after 70+ years

    My sister was contacted a few weeks ago by a very distant relative (somebody we didn't know) who had been contacted by a man in Australia. The Aussie had found a dog tag in the sand on a beach on an island in Milne Bay, Papua New Guinea. The name on it was my dad's uncle, and it was from (I'm...

    Vermont Country Store

    I've transitioned toward softer soaps and creams in the last few months, but I got 3 pucks of Vermont Country Store Lime Musk soap for Christmas. I hadn't planned to use it, then I thought "Why not?" so I used some today. Not bad. It smells good—kinda limey, not at all musky, mostly...

    Coat Hanger Razor Stand

    I like it, and I think it's an excellent idea for brushes. I have a couple of combo razor/brush stands, but the brush holder isn't large enough for every brush, so a homemade one from a wire hanger (with apologies to Joan Crawford) is an excellent idea!

    Bolzano Superinox

    Next time you take a notion to pay somebody to take your stuff, please contact me. I had based my retirement on winning the Powerball and that appears to have fallen through, so I'll be needing both the income and the concomitant stuff.

    Personna Super Stainless Blades

    I've never heard of any made in England. Do they have the blue dot wrapper? They sound like Crystals to me, and I love them.

    Personna Israeli Platinum Chrome vs Personna Super Platinum

    Just used a Crystal (super platinum) for a 4th 3-pass shave today. Couldn't have been smoother or closer. I love these blades.
