    I thought it was something like that.
    I have never heard of it much less seen any.
    I switched to a brush and mug years ago because of the cost.
    I buy it on Amazon and put it in my shaving mug and microwave it so it fills the cup perfectly.
    On block of soap will last for years.
    Thanks for the info.

    Most welcome @backlash and I know we can also get the blocks of shaving soap usually circular but here you have to pay an arm and a leg for them :eek: .

    Cut up ham that has been thawing in refrig.
    Shaved about a third of it for sandwiches.(with knife).
    Made up 2 packages of 3 each ham steaks bout 1/2 inch thick.
    Cut the end off chunked up for ham and beans
    Put the remaining third in freezer for Christmas day meal with all the trimmings.
    Eating at home, when tired of ham and beans will turn it into white bean chili.

    - By asking questions on our new insurance policy we found out that the rideon lawnmower is covered under our accidental damage cover saving a further $270.33 over insuring it separately.
    - Today I purchased a backpack pole chainsaw and hedge trimmer off eBay using a 5% off promotion code save $14.75 on usual prices, around here we can only buy them for $800 plus and we purchased this one for $280.25, bargain :D . We have a lot of trees, shrubs and bushland to hack through so this will come in handy in combination with our chainsaws to clean up our new to us home when we move in.
    - DH also purchased a 250 metre roll of 8mm sisal rope for use on the farm using a $10 off voucher saving us around $93.50 over purchasing it in the local shops here by the metre.

    Few bucks in your pocket @Meerkat and not the big multinationals and good to see you back @Meerkat.

    Might be my turn to go AWOL for a while as of the 10th of December onwards as we move into our new home and get settled.

    Thank you @Meerkat for the congratulations. We are truly getting to the being totally trashed stage now with no energy but we will get there.

    Picked up a sample of a new med from one of my docs. Gotta follow up with her next month and didn't want to do a 3 month script in case she decides to take me off of it. Meds are so ecpensive in not generic, I have to pick and choose what to do. She is good to work with me some on samples of stuff.
    Also picked up some reloaded ammo from out local fun store. Never got any from him before, so I'm interested as to how good it performs.
