Hi there! I am a 46 year old man from Norway who has been struck by the realization that there are more boys than men out there, even at my age! I was also struck by the realization that my own…Continue
"Like you, I am a baritenor, with emphasis on the tenor. My singing range is C#2-E5, but my comfort range is narrower (currently roughly G2-G4). I like the "singing" styles of singing, the styles that focus upon the actual art of song. That…"

"Your suit is a bit difficult to see properly, Jay, both because it's dark and because the picture is backlit. From what I see, it looks like a good fit with sliiiiightly too much material in front of the shoulders, and perhaps a somewhat…"
"Yes indeed. They know how to balance fitting with that little room to move. It fits really nice.
As for chest and shoulders: One thing, though, is that I pulled my shoulders slightly back when measuring, which means the suit is the perfect fit…"
"I read something about the formulas of at least some of the Bond Street firms changing so as not to use animal fats. I do‘nt remember if that included Taylor, but maybe this shows that they have changed?"
"Having tried out a few hundred fountain pens, I was left unimpressed by MontBlanc. They are simply not writing tools, but rather fashion accessories that look better in your shirt pocket than in your hand.
"You can't go wrong with a Cross pen. I would also recommend a rather odd one out, the Lamy Persona. Lamy isn't your typical high-end pen maker, rather the opposite in fact, but they made this one exquisite gem which I would recommend very…"
"Live play at KGS seems to be better for developing, but I rarely have time for live play, so it's more turn based. I've been stuck in the 10-12 kyu range for some years now, though, so that might be telling."
"There are several different schools of training, and definitions of "strong", but I am pretty old school and think you should focus on basic, functional strength. Could you survive a week of old-fashioned farm work? Then you are…"
"4k is OK for a kitchen knife, but not sufficient for a face razor. 8k-12k-16k-maybe even 30k would be far better. You should also finish up by stropping it.
Do also check your shaving technique. Axe salesmen of old managed to shave with the axes…"
"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More
"I'm not a vegetarian, but have gone camping with a few. Some things we've eaten:
Split pea soup
Madras lentil soup (Trader Joe's, Costco, Amazon)
Mac & cheese (something more upscale than Kraft, spice it…"
"Some time back the organization, concerned I think about its finances, put forth an idea of restructuring, as I'm sure you've noticed. We were invited to comment on it.
They looked at similar orgs to see what worked. They…"
"I agree with you Carl, I have felt that since we change from New Warrior Network to MKP the dynamics have changed to more marketing / numbers / services - but that is what happens when you move from men sharing what they have found to be…"
"Tent camping - typically take a Coleman camp stove, cast iron skillet, and 1-2 dutch ovens. I'll prep food as much as I can before we leave (aka putting all the dry ingredients in pancake batter together, mixing spices, stuff like that)."
