I know we are primarily a shaving site but for me what gives this site so much vitality is the diversity of interests of our members. Not only have I ended up getting some great shaving gear, such as my Semogue TSN 2012 LE brush and (thanks to Mike Perry) an incredibly reknotted and repolished Century 4 brush, but Mike's threads on his garden, cooking, and his work for Habitat for Humanity, James's Pipe Parlor (and I don't even smoke!), and the Fountain Pen Talk thread all enlighten and are so interesting because of the knowledge our members bring to these and other subjects. Thank you to all who participate. Smile

I get to be a different person on this forum. In real life I'm a prosecutor who can't remember case law and doesn't like to prepare for trial.

Here I'm a swashbuckling rogue who enjoys straight razor shaving (if I ever build up the nerve), butchery, and bay rum!

I wish I was not so busy at work and could actually spend time reading a bit more of the reviews and asking more questions. I could participate more in the pipe thread even though I smoke cigars.
The exercise thread is another one I would like to use to get motivated.
The 'whatcha reading' is one I may revive, even though it takes me forever to read a book anymore. I would be interested in what others read.

There is no measure of the knowledge I gain from visiting this site. I thank all who share that knowledge so freely.

Hi Freddy

If it wasn't for this place (and the friendly people), working from home would be that much more lonely than it already is -- Beta son hasn't developed into a great conversationalist yet Biggrin

Take care, Mike

Hi Freddy, Not only are we diverse but as I stated in another thread, this site is TOP HEAVY with GENTLEMEN.... You should see the idiots I deal with on a couple of the NFL football sites I belong to...lol... NO Gents there.... Plus we pretty much have free reign to insult each other over there... It gets pretty heated. As long as you take it in stride it's pretty funny. Just some can't stand the heat nor posses the gift of gab, and as such don't last long...lol. This site is TOTALLY the opposite... Our Mods keep it real here.

Sav, based on what you said, even if I did understand football, I wouldn't last a nanosecond on one of those sites based on your description. 24

For me, the thread diversity here makes the participating members "real". Real people with real lives and interesting chat and photos to share. TSN has grown into a great site!

This is, indeed, a great place to chill. Wink
