    Peter Green, may he rest in peace

    One of my favorites as well. From Mayall and FM through his solo work and Splinter Group, have them all. The later years only provided glimpses to his genius that permeated his earlier work but still worth a listen. His "In the Skies" album is still in regular rotation. Such a talent.

    Old hotels

    The wife and I love older hotels. There is a quaintness and charm to the older properties that make them more enjoyable stays than those at the cookie-cutter national chains. We have spent many weekends at the Jefferson Hotel in NE TX. Also some time at the Francis Marion in Charleston SC and at...

    2019-2020 Premier League/Champions League season

    The American owners of Swansea continue to gut the team. Hoping that we are able to remain in the Championship after this season but it is not looking good.

    Derby Extra or Derby Premium - which are better blades?

    I have never been a fan of Derby Extras, YMMV. Granted it has been a decade or so since I have used one. I have heard that they had some changes a few years ago but I have not used the newer blades. Last month I took a flyer on a 100-pack sleeve of the Premiums and I have to admit that they are...

    What TV series you watching?

    Just finished season 2 of "Black Spot" on Netflix. It has a touch of David Lynch in its portrayal of a remote French area. Next up is Babylon Berlin, followed by the second season of "Dark". It is going to take some time but so far BB is enjoyable. Given the period of time in which BB is set, it...

    Vintage Williams mug soap

    Nice score. Vintage Williams pucks are great. I have a few and I am miserly in my use of them as want them to last and last.

    Persona Medprep

    Right on. Med Preps are a great blade as are their Labs.

    Derby Premium! Anyone else surprised?

    Not a fan of Derby's but I purchased a sleeve of these and have been pleasantly surprised. Cheap and not bad at all.

    It didn't make my list because of his acting but I do like his stylized direction (uncredited). For me, the supporting cast are the real stars.

    Bic chrome platinum vs feather blades!!

    IME, BICs are excellent blades. While not a sharp as Feathers I would put them in the same ballpark. On a scale of 1-10 with Feathers as 10, I would place BIC around 7-8 with Derbys around 4-5. For me Feathers last around 3 shaves and BIC can handle a few more but my habit is no more than 3...
