    Halloween Can't Be Far Behind

    They changed the recipe for the monster cereals. It's vile! They're no longer made from oats. Now, like everything else disgusting, they're made from Soylent Corn.

    Newbie cries out for Underdog

    I guess my basic question is what to do with old, neglected shoes. Oil, renovator, or garbage? Cleaning the closet, I noticed the sad state my shoes were in. They'are all at least 10 years old and I can't remember the last time I used or even owned shoe polish or anything. Might have had a...

    Need tips for making better electric drip coffee

    Due to circumstances beyond my control, I just bought a Bonavita BV1800 with the glass carafe. The coffee's been a disappointment, though it's not vile like the "Taste Nastier" machine it's replacing. (The right name's a bit rubbed out.) The Tastes-Nastier's not mine, but a family member brought...

    Anyone been to a "Coffee & Tea Festival"

    I recently heard of the Coffee & Tea Festival website. They're having one in NYC on March 21, 22 at the Brooklyn Expo Center, and in Philadelphia on November 8, 9. Has anyone been to one that can talk about it. Is it worth going to if you just love all things coffee, or is it mostly a trade fair?

    For those posting in the Soap or Shampoo of the Day threads, how do you store it all?

    Do you have a soap rack? Something like a spice rack that can hold 60 different soaps? Do you have one of those industrial soap racks that can hold hundreds of bars? Do you have dozens of soap containers to store each one after drying? If so, do you prefer plastic, wood, ceramic, or perhaps...

    A recent thread mentioned how the following ingredients might be beneficial for shaving. • Camphor: a natural antiseptic that helps firm skin to lift the beard. • Clove Flower Oil: helps open the pores while softening the beard to prevent scraping and tugging of the hair. &#8226...

    The Science of Shaving; Homo Sum; W.Heffer & Sons Ltd; Cambridge, England; 1931

It's under the Creative Commons license, so it'll (hopefully) remain available. http://dbooks.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/books/PDFs/503203287.pdf Had a chance to read it. I'm thinking the Latin playwright to whom the "Homo Sum"...
