Apartment cleaned, keys left, and tomorrow we drive to airportLeisureGuy

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 23:42:55 +0000

Our flight is Friday morning and we’ll be in our new, furniture-less apartment by late afternoon. New mattresses have been delivered, so we’ll have a place to sleep. Moving is exhausting, but soon we’ll have been moved.Filed under: Daily life(image)

Change-of-pace shave: Edwin Jagger synthetic, Nancy Boy Signature shaving cream, Baili BR171LeisureGuy

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 14:59:26 +0000

Still Esbjerg aftershave gel, though. I got a really terrific shave, and I think Nancy Boy Signature is by far the best shaving cream I’ve ever used: absolutely wonderful. You owe it to yourself to try it. Their other shaving creams are good, but the Signature fragrance is special. Highly recommended, as is the Baili […](image)

New and better pen light with a 0.5-lumen beamLeisureGuy

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 13:54:19 +0000

For some years I have used Preon2 pen lights. Elderly eyes require more photons, and in looking for things in shadowed shelves or reading menus in dark restaurants and such like, having a pen light on hand makes a big difference. However, the Preon2 switch (a click switch on top of the pen) are prone […](image)

Facebook Silences Rohingya Reports of Ethnic CleansingLeisureGuy

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 00:46:41 +0000

Facebook allowed Russian groups to buy ads to influence US election, Facebook allows people to target their ads to anti-Semites and white supremacists (though Facebook said they have stopped doing that in specific cases), and now Facebook is censoring reports of ethnic cleansing. Maybe Facebook has too much power and is prone to using that […](image)

Trump White House Reportedly Nixed Study Showing Benefits of RefugeesLeisureGuy

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 00:25:29 +0000

The GOP seems to detest facts and ignores them whenever possible. Benjamin Hart reports in New York magazine: Ahead of an October 1 decision on how many refugees to admit into the United States next year, the New York Times reports that the Trump administration nixed a report showing that displaced people are beneficial to the U.S. economy.

Two guys from Allied Van Lines, my favorite moving company, worked hard today and the household goods that were packed yesterday have now been loaded. Tomorrow the apartment gets cleaned. Departure nears.Filed under: Daily life(image)

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

Kevin Drum has an excellent column, and I think he’s right about the reason for the decline in teen pregnancy.Filed under: Daily life(image)

All packed up and ready to goLeisureGuy

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 23:00:54 +0000

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.Filed under: Daily life(image)

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

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 14:06:47 +0000

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 […](image)

Best and most useful purchase for the move: Stretch WrapLeisureGuy

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 12:56:16 +0000

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. […](image)

The secret sharerLeisureGuy

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 19:37:49 +0000

Thomas Drake’s unwarranted persecution provides an important indication of the direction the American government government is going, one in which citizens are not free to criticize or to expose government wrongdoing. Jane Mayer reports in the New Yorker: On June 13th, a fifty-four-year-old former government employee named Thomas Drake is scheduled to appear in a courtroom […](image)

For conservatives, loyalty to the party overrides everything else. Example: Evangelical ChristiansLeisureGuy

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 18:51:28 +0000

That’s from a NY Times column by Thomas Edsall via a post by Kevin Drum. Both are worth reading, but particularly the Edsall column, which really lays bare the authoritarian mindset. As demonstrated repeatedly, conservatives are of an authoritarian mindset in which group loyalty and respect for authority are the preeminent virtues. Liberals, in contrast, […](image)

The futility of rebuilding the Virgin IslandsLeisureGuy

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 14:37:21 +0000

Rebuilding the Virgin Islands (and the Florida Keys) is short-sighted. The storms are only going to get worse as global warming continues. The new and upcoming normal is worse than what we have seen so far. Climate-change denial does not, unfortunately, have any effect whatsoever on global warming, and even if humans totally stopped putting […](image)

Sarah Coefield, an air quality specialist with the Missoula City-County Health Department, writes in the Washington Post: It’s late August when I get a call from a grandmother. She lives in Seeley Lake, and she’s heard we have air filters that can help with smoke. She needs one for the baby’s room. I explain we […](image)

The great nutrient collapse: Global warming is diluting the nutrients in our foodLeisureGuy

And not just our food: this will affect all animals, not just humans. Helena Bottemiller Evich reports in Politico: Irakli Loladze is a mathematician by training, but he was in a biology lab when he encountered the puzzle that would change his life.

Last US SOTD post: Copper Hat silvertip, Antica Barbieria Colla, iKon 102, and the last of my TOBS Sandalwood aftershaveLeisureGuy

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 16:12:21 +0000

The Copper Hat silvertip brush I bought while in Victoria, and it seemed a good choice for this final US SOTD post, since Victoria is our destination. It made a fine lather, though it required a little extra loading because the knot holds more than you might think. The iKon 102 did its usual great […](image)

Hillary Clinton used ‘alternate nostril breathing’ after her loss. Here’s why you should, too.LeisureGuy

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 02:40:11 +0000

Kim Weeks writes in the Washington Post: Hillary Clinton revealed this week she turned to an esoteric breathing technique popular among yogis to heal from her devastating election loss. She has spoken in the past about using meditation and yoga for calm and balance, but during an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Wednesday night to promote her new campaign memoir she explained and demonstrated alternate nostril […](image)
