Thanks to all of you!
Just want to say thanks to all of you for your generous input for us newbies. I really look forward to reading and learning, and although I'm still gathering the beginning equipment, your reviews and advice are really appreciated.
I'm leaning towards a Merkur HD (at Randy's suggestion) or a Futur to begin with. And I'm still debating the brush (although today's sale news by Sue looks inviting!). Have no clue about soaps etc. I'll keep you posted when the fun really begins.
Bob, it's a pleasure to have you here.
Thanks Bob. Feel free to ask questions regarding your potential purchases! Some time spent researching now will pay off big time later. Otherwise you'll just have to buy everything, like Ron.
He's absolutely correct! I followed their advice and kept buying and buying and buying and ...

Welcome to the world of wetshaving!! Great comraderie here, volumes of information, and a habit that'll suck your bank acccount dry in no time at all if you're short on self control.
Read through the posts, ask questions, and join in the fun.
we welcome rookies and find that in no time they're no longer rookies at all...
welcome to B&B!
Thank you Bob for being a part of our community. I've always found that I learn just about as much from the experiences and observations of those just starting out as I do from those that have been doing it for a lifetime.
I look forward to hearing how everything goes.
Welcome aboard Bob, we were all newbies at one time. Enjoy and learn.
Is there a place for humerous confessions of mishaps?
Here is as good a place as any. (We promise not to laugh or tell anyone!)

The DE is so much more enjoyable when you consider the shaving brush and the fine soaps and creams. Again, thank you.
