Um...? ??? I use a few different things, depending on how much time I have, what I want to do, etc.

Makes sense. I thought I'd ask someone who shaves that much area what works best. I've bought electric razors in the past but I seem to be just too thick- and coarse-haired for them -- maybe I'm doing it wrong.

Buy a safety razor. It's both the cheapest and the most efficient option.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

It's been a while.  From this past weekend.  Eyepatch being worn for costume purposes as our upcoming scooter rally in Baltimore is Escape from New York themed.

Rockin'.

I'd think Escape from Baltimore would be a scarier theme than Escape from New York.

I didn't, but I recall when you posted wrong name it on another occasion.  :laugh:  Both my first and middle name are older and less common orthographies of common names, so people get them wrong consistently. My last name is often written wrong too, but then I blame functional illiteracy. :P

Do you mean a double-edge safety razor? I bought a DE last year along with some quality blades. Tried it once or twice but need to get back to it.

My mandolin skills are mostly playing tunes I know from violin/piano/guitar by ear. Some of that is the traditional American songbook, some is old shape hymns and some is the standard classical repertoire. Same for the strummed dulcimer.

So I guess the answer is sorta. I can play along with real bluegrass musicians.

She hears, upon that water without sound,
A voice that cries, “The tomb in Palestine
Is not the porch of spirits lingering.
It is the grave of Jesus, where he lay.”
We live in an old chaos of the sun,
Or old dependency of day and night,
Or island solitude, unsponsored, free,
Of that wide water, inescapable.

Communism makes people grumpy, I suppose.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34
