    Sitting Here Waiting for the IRS

    Been on hold with IRS for 45 minutes straight now. Their office in Ogden, UT. I know that Trump cut their funding and their manpower, but this is getting aggravating. Rather always looked at IRS as the "money-making" branch of government. Not going to make much at this rate!

    Info Wanted on Valobra Soap

    Seeing the end of my AOS tallow sandalwood soap. Believe the reality or popular theory was that the AOS tallow shaving soap was made by Valobra. If that is so, can anyone tell me if the current Valobra soaps have the performance of the old, tallow AOS. Thanks!

    Fragrance House Aftershaves on E-Bay Question

    Have noted, with consternation, that fragrance house aftershaves are usually considerably more expensive than their matching edt. Guerlain, Givenchy and Caron, specifically. And the aftershave version is getting harder to find on the fragrance sites. I wonder why this is? I suppose one answer...

    Wholly Raw Fougeres Question

    Awhile back I bought a sample of Wholly Raw Fougere Bouquet. Really like the scent which, to me, smells much like Brut splash. Recently I read in this forum that someone thought Wholly Kaw Fougere Parfaite really smelled like Brut. Could someone who uses or has tried both please enlighten me...

    Feeling Sad

    Just started my last puck of NOS AOS Sandalwood! Got started with AOS late; took awhile to believe that the scent was actually sandalwood. Now that I have come to enjoy the scent and have the lather completely dialed in, I am on my last bit! And no more to be had!!! Sad!!!

    Help Deleting Posts from Facebook Newsfeed on iPhone

    I like to keep the newsfeed section of Facebook on my iPhone fairly clean; devoid of miscellaneous junk. When I bring up some posts and click the three horizontal dots on the right side of the screen, I sometimes get an option to "Hide post" (among other options). For other posts, there is no...

    EDT as Aftershave?

    In my never-ending search for an inexpensive bottle of Caron Pour Un Homme aftershave splash, was wondering what the downside (if any) would be to just using the Caron Pour Un Homme eat? Half the price of the aftershave, which appeals to my cheap side!

    Caron Pour Un Homme EDT and B&M Reserve Lavender Aftershave?

    Still trying to match a lavender aftershave with Pour Un Homme cologne. Fine Lavender proved to be a no-go. Currently curious about how close B&M Reserve Lavender (said to be like Caldey Island) would come? Match? Complete? Thanks!

    YouTube Help

    It looks to me that YouTube is a great resource. But I don't know how to use it, it seems. And not sure I know the correct way of addressing my problem within YouTube. So I thought I would ask here. Specifically, i am trying to gather information and instructions pertinent to me on using...

    Unsubscribing to Emails

    I use a MacBook Air and my email software is a Microsoft one (I think). Most advertising emails I receive have content, and have a section at the bottom where I can delete my subscription to the subscription or change the frequency of receipt. Some, however, shows up being said to have "no...

    Small Portions of Cella or 3P?

    I thought I remembered seeing somewhere the big bar of Cella and 3P being sold in small chunks. Believe some retailers were cutting up the large pieces into smaller ones. Anyone know if they still exist?

    Thinking of MWF Again, But.....

    Contemplating purchasing soap again. Had MWF when I had soft water, and never had any problem with it. Great lather, great shave. But now I have moved to a place with hard water. Had assumed that MWF would probably be good in hard water, given that it is old and of British origin (I figure...

    Need Basic Slim Adjustable Help

    I have a slim adjustable. Its date code is K2. For whatever reason I cannot get the wiki to cough up the quarter/year involved with that date code. Please, what would it be? It sticks in my mind that there is a Gillette razor that one is suppose to turn an additional 1/4 turn after closing...

    Dawn Dish Soap

    Probably a stupid question, but just why is Dawn the dish soap of choice for cleaning safety razors? It is all I use because (1) that is what my wife and now I have used for washing dishes, and (2) I use it for my razors because when I think to clean them, that is all there is in the house...

    New Head for my EJDE89

    I posted an earlier thread about some pitting on the leading edge of my DE89's end cap. Edwin Jagger not only sent a new end cap, but a whole new head! Very nice! Yesterday I shaved with a new Polsilver blade, and it was a bit harsh as I find the first shave on that blade always is. After...
