    Default Hello - Newbie Introduction

    Hello everyone. I joined B&B yesterday and thought I ought to introduce myself.

    For several years I have used a shaving brush, shaving soap and Pinaud Bay Rum, but am a wet shaving newbie as I have always used a Mach 3 and had no idea how to get a good lather.

    That all changed when I came across and MSN article about wet shaving two weeks ago, and then I stubmled across B&B forum. I am very excited about learning the art of shaving and expect I will be asking tons of questions from you veterans.

    With that in mind, here's my first question: Is there a glossary of the common terms and acronyms used in this forum? I'm a little lost as I read some of the posts. (I searched the FAQ, and couldn't find anything.)

    Thanks so much!

    BBS = Baby-butt smooth (of a good shave)
    SWMBO = She who must be obeyed

    Welcome aboard, it should not take long to get used to the lingo that is used around here.
    Cheers, DJ.

    Now that is funny acronym (probably because it is so true)

    Nobody has noted it yet, but I usually use SWIWLTP....

    Maybe because I am not actually married yet..... Or just not cynical enough....

    Ah, suppose I should have defined it. (Or maybe I didn't just as an excuse to get another post in and move up the ladder... 'evil laugh').

    Ah Randy, you are evil....

    Somehow, I think if there were issues in that area, what after shave I did or did not use really wouldn't be so relevant....
