I would just like to thank those of you that have updated this thread :thumbup:

I am always amazed at how we form a mental image of our online friends, and how wide of the mark it is in reality! hahaha

My best Regards

alright. Ever since I saw all the photos from the Cotiticule Pilgrimage I've thought I should return the favour...

After searching through the hundreds of photos on iPhoto (mostly selfies of my two teenage daughters:) ), I realized there were only about 3 photos of me.... 2 of them certainly less than flattering....
This is me, almost exactly a year ago, just before I'd quite shaving altogether...
Nice to see ya all!

Cheers,
-Chris

my avatar is a picture of myself and family. it was before I started shaving, but it is a true photo, not setup at all. the photo was taken by a friend when we were just standing there and it was done with a mobile phone.
I find myself engulfed in the world of straight razors recently, but I will mention that I was a fitness equipment salesman and repairman for many years. then worked as a caregiver until I couldn't handle the losses. worked as a cabinet maker for many years and was laid off with many others. I worked as a bodger and wood artist for a couple years and now am in school. I have a 4yo daughter and her mother and I have been together for almost eleven years now.
My hobbies are turning wood, carving wood and primitive weapons.

you should try to contain your enthusiasm.
A little decorum, please.

Then the light shone, trumpets sounded and I got to the other side, where men shave with smiles on their faces, razors pop hairs, and a continuous choir singing «~~Keen and Smooth~~» is heard everywhere. (Matt)

Please help me here, guys. I don't see the "attachments" options when I try to post a reply in this thread. Consequently, I can't post a picture. I see the image option in the tool tray but can't make it work. I already have a pic resized at smalljpg. and back in my docs but can't get it here. Suggestions? Denny

Try C&P'ing this little bit of BBcode and include the URL of the photo between brackets. I just upload mine to photobucket, but any online photo hosting service should work.

img=800]***[/img

Edit: Ha! I finally got it to display:) but i had to remove the square brackets from both the front and back. I'm sure there is an easier way... but damned if i know what it is.

I think you are a little over my head, Chris. I thought when you posted a reply that the attachment option would appear. I don't know about photobucket but do know how to browse my own docs/pictures. You're right, there's got to be an easier way. My picture sucks anyway.

You can only upload pictures from your pc in selected forums. This isn't one of them. To post a picture here, it needs to be online somewhere else (photobucket, shutterfly, facebook, etc.), then you can use the bbcode
iconCode:
[img] www.webpagewheremypicis.com [/img]
to post it in your reply here...

If size is an issue, use img=800 at the beginning of the code

Thanks, Paul. I will give it a try tomorrow. I guess it was just the avatar that I could upload. By the way, what is a BBcode?

Any time. BBCode is short for Bulletin Board Code. You can upload pics in the Marketplace and Coticule tavern as well. It's just the other forums here that don't offer that feature

Hello,

My real name is Urmas and I live in Estonia. The Finns and Hungarinans are our related nations. I like razors, coticules, cycling, reading, apple computers... and of course I like my friends. :)
I want to obtain not simply the best but perfect storke and with help of this I hope to achieve a ultimate coticule edge.

Me and my little daughter:


My favorite pet, she is Briton and she makes faces too...


Here I made a little list of Estonian music for you:

... and yes, in our place there is dark and cold and there isn't nothing much to do but sing...

With friendly regards,
Urmas

Day-am Urmas! Estonian chicks are hot!

Thanks for posting the vid's, and the photo's too.

This whole internet forum thing is still kinda new to me: I am amazed that such a group of people connected by such a tenuous thread can become what I would consider friends. These tiny glimpses onto each other's lives give such character and definition to you all as actual real people. Very cool indeed!
