The NBA Now Feels Like the Future and the NFL the Past. But It Wasn’t Destined to Work Out That Way.

I don’t really follow sports, but this column is absolutely fascinating. And do watch the videos.

Another great cider: Wild English, from Sea Cider

And just as with wine, each cider has its own flavors and fragrance. This one is (like the others) wonderful.

Wholly Kaw’s donkey-milk shaving soap

leave a comment »

Continuing my series of soaps from the Sharpologist article, I picked Wholly Kaw’s Monaco Royale this morning:

Top notes: Lavender, Bergamot, Neroli, Petitgrain
Middle notes: Oakmoss, Cedarwood, Tonka Bean, Ambergris
Base notes: Guaiacwood, Agarwood, Vetiver, Sandalwood, Labdanum and Musk

And the ingredients in the tallow version, which is what I have:

Potassium Stearate, Sodium Stearate, Aqua, Donkey Milk, Glycerin, Potassium Tallowate, Sodium Tallowate, Potassium Ricinoleate, Sodium Ricinoleate, Potassium Shea Butterate, Sodium Shea Butterate, Garcinia Indica (Kokum) Butter, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Butter, Lanolin, Fragrance

As expected, the soap performed very well, and my Edwin Jagger synthetic brush had no difficulty in generating a good lather. My Feather AS-D1 with a Feather blade made short work of the stubble, and a splash of Floris JF finished the job. Fine shave.
