• March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month

    A subject near and dear to me.

    If there is just one thing you and yours can do proactively itís this !

    Because of a relatively simple test I am celebrating my 25
    th birthday this year.

    Iím sure a lot of you are saying ďthat old codger is 25?Ē Yes itís true because 25 years ago I beat colon cancer. And the only reason I am here today is because of a Colonoscopy and being aware something was just not right.

    I have had a yearly colonoscopy since that fateful day. It is so easy and not painful. There really is no excuse.

    To kick the month off lets have a little contestÖ

    1.Check with your doctors, and if they are suggesting (50 yrs old or a family history?) letís get scheduled.

    2. Schedule a 'scope

    3. Post in this thread- I am scheduled!

    4. Get this cool badge

    5. Get a chance at a prize of a ÖÖ.

    150.00 Gift Certificate at West Coast Shaving
    (to be drawn on or about April 1st)

    For all of you who have had your scope in the last 4 months -You are also eligible to win!

    My yearly is scheduled for Wednesday, so I got one of these great tags !

    Whoís with me?

    (Remember, itís important for significant others too!)

    Colon Cancer is really easy to beat when caught early a 90% cure rate.

    Do yourself and your family a favor and get checked out.

    Hello all. After lurking for the past couple weeks, I decided to join the forum since the information here was so valuable when deciding to jump into the world of DE shaving. I'm very happy with the shaves I get from my Schick Hydro 5 cartridge razor, so my deciding to pursue DE shaving...

    Do I really want MdC for Christmas?

    Thread Starter: unkajonet

    Hey folks, looking for a little advice - Looks like I'm going to get through GRU-Christmas successfully, and am thinking about getting myself a treat. It was going to be MdC, but now I'm not so sure. I have Catie's Bubbles LPV and several pucks of Tiki, which I've read are pretty close in...

    New guy, new razor

    Thread Starter: bobvila

    Hello all, New to the group here. What brings me here is a razor i found while scrounging around in my dads attic. I dont really know anything about using safety razors, but i think it might be fun. I cleaned up the razor a little and it looks pretty good i guess. Some of the gold plating has worn...

    Hi Guys, I have been shaving for a long time but never with a DE. So at the ripe young age of 70 I thought I would give it a try. Picked me up a '56 Gillette Super Speed silver flare tip razor off the Bay and shaved with for the first time this morning. Not bad - I used a rebranded Personna...

    Hello from new member

    Thread Starter: keller

    Hi Gents, I've been wet shaving for about 5 years now (started early at about 23). For the first 4 years or so I stuck to what I started with and knew - my 34C, EJ best badger brush and alternated between Tabac and Bigelow (and a few other concoctions here and there). Then, recently, I really...

    Blades similar to GSB?

    Thread Starter: justino_14

    I really like Gillette Silver Blue blades, they give me a nice shave, and I usually got next to no irritation using them with my EJ DE89. The only thing is that the first pass is usually a little bit rough. I was curious if there are blades that shave similar to the GSB blades but a little bit...

    After hearing me grumble about the costs of the cartridge razors for years, Anne picked up a DE razor on one of her antiquing junkets for me. Have to say, I'm rather hooked and have decided to start collecting, which helps the relationship, since we are spending more time together at the shops!...

    Thread Starter: flashover604

    Hi all. I was given a CRUSTY old FatBoy. It was found in my cousins fathers estate and was going to be thrown away until she remembered that I was into old razors. I sent it off to member Captain Murphy, our resident FatBoy guru for a thorough de-funking. Remember that "crusty" part? ...
