    Love this stuff. It's a go-to soap that lathers like a cream. Cheap, smells good, easy clean up. What's not to love?

    Tequila Clase Azul

    Give it a try, let me know what you think. It's a bit pricey. Even the best prices I've located are in the $80/bottle range. But life is too short not to splurge once in a while.

    Tequila Clase Azul

    Costco? Really? That's great. I never would have thought to check there. Perhaps it's a regional item. I'm in So Cal and I think they only carry large bottles of Jose Cuervo. I'll be on the look out for it. Bevmo only had the pomegranate tequila, which I wouldn't mind trying, but I'd like to get...

    What color belt?

    This is spot on. You can wear brown appropriately, but if you HAVE to choose just one way to go: Black shoes and black belt go with everything. Sure, some apparel looks great with brown shoes/brown belt; but they would be just as acceptable with black belt/black shoes--the opposite is not...

    What Are You Reading?

    Galileo's Daughter by Dava Sobel. Great book. A new and different angle to examining Galileo's life by looking at letters written by his daughter, a cloistered nun. I highly recommend it.
