"@ B.A. thanks for the insight.  I agree and I think you nailed it with the fact that it takes conversation.  My barber does scissor over comb on top and clippers on the sides, with clippers over comb to blend it. "

Questions about the Barbershop

I read the Art of Manliness article about reviving the barbershop. After I was done reading it, I went to the barbershop in my town, and the barber had me sit down and asked me what I wanted. I told him that I would like my hair scissored; the barber immediately grabbed his clippers and was about to run them through my my hair when I had him stop.

Mark replied to Daniel's discussion Recommendations for Historical Fiction Books?
"G.A. Henty has written a lot of historical fiction from all eras in history. His books are great, and I would suggest that you look into them. His books fall under the more adventurous category than detective side."

"It's more Socratic than that -- or so I hope.  In that I am asking posters to decide what they think (with me going first, saying what I think), giving enough detail we can see if it's consistent."

Boyhood Restored

I believe that boys should use their time primarily to prepare for manhood. This group is for young men, dads, and other men who have opinions they'd like to share on how boys should grow up or be raised.
