RE: Shaving soap

Proraso is pretty good, Italian and available at Shoppers Drug Mart. House of Knives also carries a bunch of different soaps. A good badger brush worth the money IMO. How do you like the Muhle? I used to use Proraso, might go back to it. I like the Muhle very much. Think it's an R41...I may be off on the letter, the # is correct. It does a very good job, but it is a bit aggressive.

RE: Shaving soap

For a while back in my shaving days, I used a shaving cup and brush, but I don't remember what soap I used. I think it was from one of the majors, like Gillette or somebody. I used a bar of Ivory once, and it worked pretty well. When I retired, I quit shaving. I get my beard trimmed about every three months, along with a haircut (of what little hair I have left), and that's it. My face is loving it! When I was a young guy, I used to have a beard. Where I live (Manitoba) the winter gets plenty cold and long...it kept my face nice and warm. I never thought of Gillette...I'll check it out to see if it's available as a cream or soap. I'm not partial to the squirt in the can shaving gel.

Shaving soap

I've been retired for a number of years and one thing I dispensed with, was my electric shavers. I never seemed to get a clean shave with my electrics and I tried many brands. So I went to a safety razor ( German made Muhle razor)and use razor blades, mostly Feathers from Japan, sometimes Precision from Israel. I have been using Body Shop Macca Root Shave Cream, which is very nice, but the price has just about tripled in around two- three years. So although I like it, at that these prices...I'm looking for alternative. Any suggestions ?

RE: In Defense of Fahrenheit

I prefer Fahrenheit, over Celsius, the British Imperial System (inches/pounds,quarts, etc.) over metric. I know some will say...the metric system is so much easier to figure out, I need to get with it in these modern times, etc. :) I can use both, but generally find myself converting metric to Imperial system, in my head. Probably I just prefer inches, feet, pints, quarts, ounces, pounds, etc. because that's what I initially learned at school/home and used. I still think my English made Norton motorcycle engine sounds better as a 45 (cubic inches) as opposed to a 750 cc (cubic centimeters)...but I realize that's just me.

RE: US car in top 5 reliability in a long time, it wasn't Ram

Buick has been in the top brands for reliability for JD Power a number of times over the years. Nothing new. In 2015 when we got a new vehicle we had to decide whether to trade in our 2007 Buick with 150K or 2007 Toyota with 50k miles on the odometer. Both were bought new, in 2007. It was no decision at all, the Toyota even with 1/3 the miles of the Buick, had many expensive electronic issues over our ownership, we traded it in. The Buick, relatively trouble free still so, even though it is rapidly approaching it's 10 year anniversary with us. Touch wood. They (vehicles) all will have issues sooner or later. We bought the Toyota originally because CR recommended. We have learned.

Sled dog and polar bear- friends ?

Interesting relationship between polar bear and sled dog. Attached article indicates this dog is an ancient, primitive sled dog breed that was used by Inuit people in the far north. It takes place in the northern part of my province. Canadian Sled dog and buddy, the polar bear

RE: Snow tires - 2 or 4

Do all 4. Dangerous having one axle having more traction than the other in slippery conditions...I'm thinking about braking and handling.

RE: Ugh cracked dash

Florida is a hot state...sun shines a lot...I'm not surprised after almost 10 years (2007 vehicle)of intense sun and heat that this would happen. Lot's of expansion (heat) and contraction (air conditioning) cycles going on.

RE: What do you do if you find money...?

A buddy and I found a wallet with $ 200 in the billfold, credit cards, license, etc. We turned it in to the police. The guy who lost the wallet wanted to give us a reward...or take us out to dinner. We declined, said his thanks were enough and hoped that if we lost our wallet, whoever found it would turn it into the police...intact. I've never found loose money other than say a quarter on the street.

RE: Overloaded? Watch to the end. :)

Interesting... Goes to show the lever action of pulling up in the middle of the truck. My kids stroller folds in half the same way. I agree something seems fishy, the truck bent in half but wasn't pulled backwards and the driveshaft didn't break...? X 2. I was thinking similar. Also nobody seemed too upset about the 'damage' to the truck.

RE: How Long Have You Been Licensed to Drive?

Thinking back on it, I should have stayed with my bicycle. :) My dad always used to say that in the long run, if you lived in a city, it would probably be cheaper to use taxis all the time, rather than buying/using your own car or truck for your transportation needs.

RE: Any motorcycle enthusiasts, looking for comparison

Good test with Roadmaster VS Harley vs Victory from Cycle World on the internet. I can't get the link to post, but is seems to provide a lot of the kind of info you are looking for. Hope that helps in your decision. A suggestion, given that you live on the Rock and are so far from the nearest Indian dealership, I would look at another make dealership that is close to you. Getting a bike fixed or serviced when you're so far from that makes dealer can be problematic.

RE: How Long Have You Been Licensed to Drive?

Licensed for both car and motorcycle since 1965. Edit: Need to add...I also was licensed to drive commercial trucks from 1971 to 1977.

RE: Can anyone help

YEP....battery is NOT holding a charge. Is this the OEM (original 2009) battery? You could charge it..take it out and have it load tested at any auto parts store OR buy a new battery Yes original 2009 battery. You got very good service out of that original battery.

RE: Ram outsells Chevy

It would be interesting to see what numbers GMC and Chevy are selling, together. They are both the same platform, with a few trim differences. Ford only sells one truck, Ford. Dodge/Chrysler only sells one truck, Ram.
