Surprise shaving boxes

with 3 comments

I got some good feedback from the first boxes sold, so I’ve improved the selection and packing. Five more are ready, but again, please email me to find if any are still available. I’ll respond with payment info.

Response may be delayed: my MacBook is at Apple for disk reformat, clean install of Mountain Lion, and restore from Time Machine: they are doing that because I didn’t want to attempt it. I should have the computer back by tonight.

UPDATE: Fairly traumatic encounter with Mountain Lion after getting computer home. I was assured that everything had worked, so I come home turn on computer, and am asked to provide all the usual initial set-up info including account name, etc. It rejects my regular name, so I do another, and once account is set up, no data are to be found: totally gone. I panicked, The Wife came over and after futzing around was able to find my original account, which for some reason had not been presented as an option. Obviously, I should have asked them to take me through initial sign-on before I left the store.

So things are fairly okay, still some setting up. Notes is now separate, outside of mail, and has highly irritating ideas (non-alterable, so far as I can tell) about formatting. Pretty much ruined that app. More anon.

  1. Just wanted to say that your package arrived and I am blown away. Got some great stuff including two pucks of soap from Mama Bear that were on my amazon list. Are you checking up on me? 🙂 Thanks so much Leisureguy. You are great! Very generous.

  3. These “Surprise Shaving Boxes” are such a great and personal extension of the knowledge and experience that you share with us all through this blog and your book.  I’m hoping that you can make this a regular activity.  Even if you decided to charge more, the package is well worth more than you asked for. I’m hoping you are having as much fun sharing the products you have in the boxes with us, as we (the recipients) are enjoying them.
