The normalizing of bald-faced lying and the likely cause for the drop in teen pregnancy

leave a comment »

Kevin Drum has an excellent column, and I think he’s right about the reason for the decline in teen pregnancy.

All packed up and ready to go

And tomorrow morning the truck will be loaded and on its way. I can tell unpacking will be a challenge, but there’s no deadline for that.

Wee Scot, Meißner Tremonia Strong ‘n Scottish shaving paste, iKon 102, and Esbjerg aftershave gel

leave a comment »

No photo, alas. I found a tiny tub of Strong ‘n Scottish shaving paste, and I do like Meißner Tremonia’s shaving pastes—they’re like a firm shaving cream. The lather was everything one could want, and the 102 did a fine job on the two-day stubble.

A little dot of the Esbjerg, and I’m ready to go out for breakfast. It will be good when this week is over.

Best and most useful purchase for the move: Stretch Wrap

leave a comment »

I read about it in this Cool Tools post, and bought it from Amazon for $11. The roll is 5 inches wide and 1000 feet long, and it wrapped many boxes with loads left over.

Bottles containing liquids were packed (each wrapped in bubble wrap) in plastic storage bins, whose lids snap easily on—and off. To secure the lids, I just wrapped the stretch wrap around and around the box. I later had to open one box, and the wrap is easy to remove: cut through it and take it off: no adhesive residue and it’s easily removed since it doesn’t stick to the box.

Great stuff. The Wife also said it was our best move purchase.
