Yesterday mail:- Gillette Rocket HD500 made in England I'm very happy, I didn't realised the height is almost the same as the Merkur 34C, also the Rocket has a very nice weight, balance and feels in my hand.

I already gave the second Gillette Rocket HD500 to my brother, my brother doesn't know I keep the best condition Gillette Rocket in my footlocker. That why I had to wait until I received two Gillette Rocket and pick the best condition in my den, do me a favour..........Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh don't tell him ;)

It's the funniest bloody thing I have ever heard too. Its right into broken pencil territory.

In fact it is so funny that if he managed to convince you to give him a Sabbatical banner I would make a point of immediately (within 2 mins) offering him something from B&M or Caties Bubbles for $10 that I know he would not be able to refuse he is that much of a soap collector/hoarder.

As you said, 3pm NYD :D
Sounds like I need a banner @Monsta_AU so I can get something good :)

Nice one, I gave mine to my uncle. Did the trick in converting him

My first mentholated soap. I love it, scent is quite lime forward but I do get the juniper in it and also a bit of menthol smell. I've not been able to use anything else since getting it. Absolutely loving the menthol, especially since it's been more humid than usual lately here in Perth.
Like the scent of the Earl Grey and Ginger but have only managed a hand lather with it at this point. I like what I saw so far though.

Got back to a package from The Stray Whisker.



Damnit but Con keeps having sales just when I'm trying to save money. Actually its worse than that - he waits until I have enough in the Toys Kitty for something like this.

Argh! Google is doing my head in. I put the pic in a public album but I can't see it unless I sign in to Google. I futz about with it trying to find the !@#$ing share options and it's suddenly visible even though I DIDN'T CHANGE ANYTHING. Mind you, a bunch of pics above it in the thread have also appeared for me. Google? P&C? Idiot me? I am still none the wiser as to the cause.

Rant over.

Can you see the pic now, @Mark1966 ?

[Edit] Never mind its !@#$ing gone again.
