    2020 Shave Purchase Sabbatical - Those Daring Men with their Jaunty Razors & Jalopies

    No Speick‽ Wow! You have great resolve to go nearly a year without essential shave ingredients. I hope your back up team of aftershave can pick up the slack.

    sauce/condiment for lamb?

    Nearly ten years late to this thread, but the link still works. I made this tonight with a lamb loin roast and it was delish! I over reduced a bit, but flavor was still fabulous.

    Well, since the whole counting thing was just an afterthought after I thought it might be close and I’m not really participating in any of the events, I think I’ll just leave it alone. I already edited it once when I realized I was missing a “to” and deleted an “a” to keep the count the same...

    Not sure how you’re counting. This is what I’m going by.

    2020 Shave Purchase Sabbatical - Those Daring Men with their Jaunty Razors & Jalopies

    Extremely long day yesterday and got home from a week on the road after midnight to a snow filled driveway. After showering I was just going to go straight to bed when I glanced up at my tiny herd of brushes and fairly new tub of Art Of Shaving eucalyptus shave cream and decided I still had...

    I’ve been working this top hard. Roughly six days a week for four months and hand washing on weekends. It’s starting to show a little wear. As you can see by my top shirt, (a Duluth Trading Company fire hose shirt jack) that I’m not babying anything. It would be nice if I could get multiple...

    One Soap for Life

    Santa Maria Novella crema da barba, old formula. No hesitation. I have resisted restocking since they reformulated, reduced the quantity, and raised the price. But since this is a what if dream scenario, then I would have a lifetime supply of the old formula and be very happy.

    2020 Shave Purchase Sabbatical - Those Daring Men with their Jaunty Razors & Jalopies

    Nice show. I think I could easily get by for a year on this. Would probably run out of aftershave, but I’m assuming that there was still some left over from last year.

    2020 Shave Purchase Sabbatical - Those Daring Men with their Jaunty Razors & Jalopies

    Not sure why I’m attracted to this thread. I’ve been reading nearly all of the posts. Maybe I’m just a little too bored/disconnected with the rest of B&B these days. You guys are doing a great job. Stay strong.

    No they do not, which I find rather annoying. However, I just ordered another set of 3/4 length leggings because they work so well. I also picked up some fairly thick Under Armor brand bottoms and they are collecting dust. Same issues as most other synthetics, too warm/sweaty when I’m driving...

    Did Astra get good? It’s been a long time since I used one and I remember them being very inconsistent in a 40’s Superspeed. I don’t think I ever tried one in my EJ89.

    Trust your gut. By the end of this year you will find yourself instinctively reaching for certain things, even when you thought you wanted something else. Those will be your Zen products, the ones that you resonate with. For me it is Tabac and MWF as my mainstay shave soaps at home. It just...

    2020 Shave Purchase Sabbatical - Those Daring Men with their Jaunty Razors & Jalopies

    Just remembered, there will be tough times, temptations, and hurt feelings. Some people will get upset with others, etc. Just remember that this is all in fun and we should all be encouraging each other toward the goal as a group. The group should be helping each other to overcome these...
