    And so it begins

    Yale would have to do something amazing to have a worse year than last on the gridiron, but they're full of surprises. Even so, boola boola!

    Anyone a fan of reggae?

    If it's open season on ska/rocksteady... <iframe width="560" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" loading="lazy" allowfullscreen></iframe> And went to college with these guys (including a future CSI: Miami star in there on the slide trombone.) <iframe...

    Disappointed :(

    I'm sorry the fates conspired against you, brother. It really speaks to what a stand-up guy you are that A. you recognize upfront that priority #1 is providing for your family and B. in the time that you you do have, you're still bound and determined to make your pipemaking dreams work. No...

    Love that pattern/shape! My wife collects china, and found a nearly-complete 6-piece basic set of Starbust, plus s&p shakers and coffee service at Savers... didn't know what it was but sank what turned out to be a smart $40 investment...

    I collect Tiki mugs and other Polynesiana... one of those novelties that just got out of hand. It makes for fun cookouts. I'm also a bit of a clothes horse. For a long while I either justified it as a practical need, or browbeat myself for dandyism. Now I realize it's just another form of...

    A fair question

    My question: What kind of god allowed this terrible track by Starship? <iframe width="560" height="315" src="" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" frameborder="0" loading="lazy" allowfullscreen></iframe> Seriously, from "White Rabbit" to...

    Shave of the Day.

    I have finally come over to the DE side of the force... working my way through a variety pack of blades to figure out what works for me. Today was a BlueBird in a little Gillette with Proraso Green soap. Lotta alum on the neck and jawline... not the razor's fault, just the learning curve.

    need groomsmen gift ideas?

    Best groomsman gift I ever got was a set of cufflinks... groom was lke a brother to all of us, so he was able to track down links that were uniquely "us". (I got little tiki heads, my pal who was a park ranger got compasses, etc.) The wallet I carry to this day was also a groomsman gift, came...
