I use lotion after I shave. It really helps with the irritation.

This thread has a lot of information on shaving.

No, just lazy.

No goals or ambition. Sounds like a lot of people I know. A good kick in the butt may be in order. Is he history?

Daughter has another boyfriend, more ambition. She still is friends with Baby Huey, unfortunately. He shows up every once in a while. You are right about the no ambition thing. Makes me nuts at times. :mad2:

He needs a passion and then someone to support him. He may have been neglected or spoiled. Who knows. The great men and women of our times usually contribute their success to a mentor or inspiration from another person. We are all so wrapped up into daily lives that we forget about our kids. Hopefully this person will wake up one day. If not Walmart is looking for greeters.

3 problems that I see. One is spoiled, 2nd is never being allowed to make any decisions for himself (domineering and controlling mommy), and lastly I think he is not the brightest bulb in the string. I was amazed 2 years ago when I saw him standing in the kitchen with a microwave dinner in his hand trying to figure out what to do with it. I half expected him to take it out of the box and start gnawing on the still frozen food. I recall that he looked at it for a while and then placed it back in the freezer. This from a 20 year old "adult".

As you can see, some things just stick in my craw (is that the right word??).

I just ordered a DE razor it's called a fatboy and uses double edged razors like your grand pappy use to use. There seems to be a revival of people who swear these razors give an incredible sharp shave with no irritation. I was wondering if anyone here uses them.


Trader,
Did you get the DE razor? If so how do you like it?

I have bought several since my last post. I paid as high as 61.00 and as low as a 1.00. I actually like the older 1.00 razor the best. It was the smoothest shave yet. Go figure. My shaves are smoother and my face feels better than when I dragged my Mach 3 over it. Overall I'm satisified with wet shaving and can't see myself going back to the cartridges. Have you given it a try?

Sorry, I wasn't clear. The ex-boyfriend has the Dumbo ears. Baby Huey wears a bonnet.

Who are you asking? Me?
I've been using the DE I posted the photo of. Never used any other blade razor except to try, didn't like them.

I've used a pivoting Atra for the last 5,000 years. Just last week I went to buy some new blades. You know how they show the price per 100 on the package? Well, I looked at others while I was there. My double edge pivot blades were $29.90 per 100. The Quattro was $306.00!!!!!!! I'll be sticking with double, thank you.
