Just bought a new Amazon Echo, and

I can listen to music from the '30s, '40s
and '50s on IHeart's "Biltmore Radio"
channel while I shave. (And here's
Ella Fitzgerald now . . .)

Stay healthy, everyone!

7/10 at a push. Today was a bog ordinary shave. Had to change blade as the GSB was not cutting it (forgive the pun). Every thing otherwise was as normal. Sometimes the magic does not work.
 
Thursday, April 15th....very late in the day


Pre- cold water wash with Nivea face
Paladin PK-47 satin Briar
DG Confluence
Rockwell 6S on plate 5 then 3
Post-Thayers, DG AS then Nivea post balm

Great 2 pass for a BBS (Not something I usually strive for or get often). First use of this particular DG soap and AS. As expected, great lather, slickness and general performance.

Have a great night!
