I don’t understand why they put activated charcoal into my bath soap …

but I spent $9.95 (USD) for an over-sized bar of it to find out for myself. I am just grateful the manufacturer did not use shea butter in the formula. I find shea butter to be greasy and uncomfortable but a lot of soap manufacturers are saturating their products with it these days and I am almost persuaded to go dirty for a week or two at a time now.

Here is what I found about the reason my soap has activated charcoal in it: “…Activated charcoal soap is made by processing a high-carbon material at a high temperature and then “activating” it with hot air or steam. Its large surface area allows it to absorb toxins, which is why activated charcoal in soap theoretically binds to dirt and oil on the skin and helps clear out pores…” and here is the article where I found this out…..

I dearly love luxury items and I love this bar of soap even though it is a big handful even for a man like me. I mean it is a real handful — maybe three times the size of ordinary bar soaps. The smell of the soap is very masculine but also very subtle. It is not the kind of odor that might make something or someone want to hump my leg, but it is pleasing and understated.

So enough about my new soap. Let us move on to something a little more sexy, shall we?

I am trying to remember a time when I was more sexy than I was at the age of 16. The age of 21 comes in a close second, I guess, because by that time I could not only surf the female world for companionship but I could also buy beer legally. I mean, really now folks, ass and beer … both plentiful and both legal .. what could possibly better than that? Well, maybe the Mid-30s could get in there on that little bandwagon, but after becoming a legitimate adult in the eyes of the law there are few things that could top that achievement.

I have to make a little bit of a u-turn here, friends … I have to admit that I did get something of a half-heavy feeling when I gazed upon my brand new million dollar credit rating for the very first time. That could have been described as a libidinal moment, I guess …It was a time when I first lost my taste for dusty old polyester suits and embraced the joy of natural fabrics. But I never did develop much of an affinity for satin — especially satin sheets and pillows — because they get too damned uncomfortably warm to my skin — I prefer a good 800-thread-count Egyptian linen for sheets and pillow cases.

A little aside ….I am still struggling with forgiveness for my wayward Son who decided, one sweet day, that it would be fun to feed marijuana seeds to my pet Budgie bird to see how she would react if she got “High.” My bird ate the seeds and died the next morning. My son admitted the act to me and I am still conflicted about how to respond to that admission. But I am trending toward full forgiveness now because it has now been several years since my son’s cremation service and urn burial and I have, most recently, made the decision that the child was more important to me than the bird. Maybe there is a shred of sanity left in these old bones after all.

All The War Shit

Like everybody, I have been fixated of late on the events transpiring in Washington, D.C., and in Ukraine. The things that are going on between the two are enough … in my humble opinion … to severely reduce my testosterone levels so I am swearing off a lot of it … if I can, that is! I cannot get over the sneaking suspicion that what is happening here is not something brand new but is something that has been being planned for a long long time now. I do not know if all this Ukraine/Russia stuff has been coordinated by the Industrial Military Complex or not, but there are some people who write blogs and who report in the media saying they believe that to be the case. If that is the case, then I would say there is some reason to believe that somewhere in the midst of all this chaos, there is something bordering on the criminal going on and that criminality is not all on the credit balance of the Russians either. I hate to entertain any notion that the conflict in Ukraine is something a lot deeper and darker than is being played to us by the Media but my gut feeling senses something absurdly evil in the whole mess.

The Chinese Visit My Blog

I have been getting visits to my blog from China lately and I am wondering if those visits are simply “Bots” of if somebody in China is trying to hack me.
