    Jack The Barber DE Razor Blades.

    Picked these DE blades up at my workplace today. Half price special this week. They are made in China and there is 12 in the pack. Nice to see some more shaving supplies hitting the shelves. Will be interesting to see how sharp they are when I get around to trying them.

    Just watching a cooking show on the TV called Bonacini’s Italy and he made what looked like quite an easy pizza/pancake like dish called Farinata. Does anyone here make it and is it that easy to make? LOTH likes chickpeas and I thought I might give it a crack if it was that easy to make. Any...

    Interesting shave today, Gillette Techmatic.

    Today was a very interesting shave. For the first time I used a Gillette Techmatic Razor. I have never used this type of razor before. It has a band style cartridge type arrangement as a blade. You wind on the lever to advance the blade to the next number on the dial and it actually counts down...

    Darning Socks.

    Not sure if this has been asked before, but does anyone darn holes in their socks like I do? I can make a pair of socks last quite a long time by darning any holes. I must admit though that when a hole appears on the sole or underside of the sock they become rags as I do not like...
