    Eliminate the backlog of samples month

    Even loading heavily and getting three shaves per sample I think I'll only get through 60%, but it needs to be done.

    The beginning of the end, self limiting myself to only 3 purchases each year (planned for this year 2 soaps and 1 brush). I don't believe anything can now give me a better shave, more than I can improve the current lineup through better technique.

    Month I try to get razor I waited long time. Tradere OC. I am giving up on Darwin after today when I lost yet another auction due sniper bid....

    One of feature this razor have is side of blades are hidden with head and is profile for thumb to hold, which with my disable hand is a struggleto tight head and sometimes i got a cut.

    As you can see from my post in BST I pulled up big guns from my stash to get it. I can't offer anything better

    Cheers! Very best of luck ...

    One thing I left the interview feeling really good about was my finishing line that I was excited about the prospect. All the interviewers wrote that down.

    This was a good read: https://soulsearch.files.wordpress.com/2007/05/64interviewquestions1.pdf

    Be professional, be positive, be enthusiastic.

    Yes - that's an easy one to get right, but so easy to miss in the stress of an interview. To be honest I know both of the managers interviewing me and they both want me to have the job so it's my job to lose which I could do if I cock-up the interview. It's going to be a strange one: HR will be in England, I'm in Germany that day and the two managers, who are interviewing me are based in Germany but will be in Detroit that day!

    pretty pleased with myself. It's surprising what damage a 28mm badger or synthetic can inflict on a small sample.

    Stupidly, I also bought 2x Castle Forbes samples (used), Mike's Natural Vetiver (used) and WSP Tobacco (not used yet). I have 3 new CRSW which I'll be using for the next 9 days and then an old CRSW for the following 3 days. After that I'll be back to completely eliminate the rest of the samples.

    oh - and I got the job. Officially start 1 March, actually, started last night...
