Posted on April 29, 2009 at 1:24pm 2 Comments

The results were so dramatic, literally life-changing, that I immersed myself in the "hobby." I even started producing videos on how to shave properly. I received many, many comments thanking me (yeah, and a few snarks and hates too). I almost feel like a "born again preacher" trying to… Continue

Hey there, I recently bought my first DE, but my issue is with my GEM 1912 SE my mom got me.

I love to wet shave, but I have given away the "foam" years ago for a shaving oil. I have used them all but now use one from Australia called Ozeoil (ozeoil.com) it is my current favourite. Keep up the great work

Depression (And Suicide)

This is something we all face in this life.  We get lonely.  We are disappointed.  We fail.  Sometimes others fail us.  What do you do when you are  truly depressed?  What if it goes on a long time?  Ever considered suicide?  It happens all the time.

Brad replied to Brad's discussion I've lost a lot of weight! How should I expect my life to change?
"It was more of something that I noticed. I'm a lot colder physically. In general, I run a bit hot. Admittedly, it may not have been a "life change", but merely an observation."
