    ^ Go slightly stubbly, and get an electric shaver/trimmer. Give it a bit of a 1 minute zap twice a week. Stubble looks good and (to age 40 years) by gum it's hassle free.

    Can't vouch for it but there were comments on here or another forum about the quality of M3 blades made in Thailand being inferior to those from UK.

    I use Mark3, bought 24x8 at auction in UK about 20 years ago, now down to my last pack having given a couple away and shaving usually 2x weekly. One shaft, credit for still gripping well.

    Stand by, we know sqwiril doesn't stalk because he said so, but will happen along to inform us how many shaves per blade that is, which aftershave I use, how long I have been here, and my probable age, all cunningly harvested from my postings.

    i bought a braun electric shaver,with trimmer 60quid 2002 not bad but over here it makes my neck raw.

    I must be lucky? I just use whatever three blade disposable that 7-Eleven/BigC/Tesco happen to have. I gave up trying to always use the same as most often "no stock" One razor lasts about two weeks. Use regular soap, no brush. In Indonesia I have to make do with two blades!

    Hence why I grew a full set. Buy a Kemei trimmer to keep it in check.

    I bought one of the ones made in Malaysia, it almost cut me open.



    It was a close shave.







    Sorry.

    I'm really very sorry.

    Noisy birds waking me up at sparrow fart.
    And strangling the buggers is frowned upon.
    Where’s the justice ?

    Is there no way to get rid of them, poison perhaps.

    These avian arseholes are located at a place I’m staying at for work purposes this week.
    Next week I’ll be somewhere else.
    Maybe there’ll be madly rutting bunnies to resent.

    Not sure if there’s silencers available for shotguns.

    It's official, the virus goes into neutral mode on auspicious days such as this, allowing millions of gov workers to ignore precautionary measures and gather in groups across the nation to celebrate their raison d'etre with zero risk of transmission.

    Bloody marvellous I say, let's have more!

    I sympathize. Three new villas have gone up next door to mine in the last 6 months. Constant drilling sawing and banging.
    A month of quiet bliss, then next door on the other side, decides to renovate his crumbling pile. With a sledge hammer. Banging away at an adjoining wall day after day. No power tools until yesterday. Shit, it’s started all over again.

    Caught out again by Germany having a bank holiday on a Saturday. Which other country does this? No shops open today and tomorrow, the only days the average worker can do their weekly shopping. Silly fooking square heads...

    So, you live in Bavaria or the Saarland . . . a tiny portion of Germany. But you're right, why celebrate a religious holiday when it falls due

    Have a Thai step-son I don’t talk about much. He’s almost 30 now. A country bumpkin. Lived with us during my 3 years in Thailand. Got him through Aksorn in Pattaya so he’s a high school graduate. Supposed to have completed a 2 year program beyond that with the same school to work in hotels but seriously doubt he ever finished it. I’ve never seen the diploma even though I’ve asked for it multiple times. Got himself involved in some sort of “cell phone shop” business a couple years ago that failed and I refused to bail him out. COVID rolls around and his debtors are in serious need of cash so they cut a deal agreeing to take about 30% of the debt to close the deal. So I paid it. For the past two years I’ve paid about 6000 baht a month to a good Brit friend for his condo so the kid had a place to stay at least. Kid hasn’t stayed there for several months now because he has a Luk Kreung girlfriend. So it’s time to close the deal with the condo rental. Long story short the kid has left me with an unpaid 22,000 baht fee because he’s never paid the monthly sewer/water/electric/maintenance fee. Sold my mates TV and left the place trashed. Gotta laugh at these daggum pillocks who burn bridges behind them. Sometimes a farang will draw a line in the sand. I’m done.

    ^ That’s a hell of a thank you. Live and learn.

    I remember long ago when you sent me a red and called me a pillock. I had to look it up!
