Beard and Body Soap

In the case of natural beard soap, your beard and body soap can be the same.

Beards are exposed to more than just the elements. Air, dust, perfumes, indoor and outdoor fumes from cooking, car exhaust, HVAC systems, cleaning solutions, camp fires, and smells of all kinds love to stick to hair and sink in. Unlike the hair on your head, beards are also subject to everything you eat, drink and smoke (if you do such a thing).

Draw a garden map

After reading about how a little bit of cool air helps some pepper seeds germinate, I started a variety of sweet and hot pepper seeds a little earlier this year. I put them in my sunny south facing window for 1 day, before moving them to my plant light, which also generates a little bit of heat. We will see if this makes a difference.

With so much variety, you may want to draw a garden map, so you can fit it all in, during the Spring rush to get everything in the ground. I drew a really good map for this year's garden. It's fun and relaxing.

Support local businesses wherever you go. Choose them first, if you have the opportunity.

I love driving on the Taconic Parkway in Upstate NY. It is labeled one of America's most scenic highways. NYS sponsors the Taste NY Stores, featuring small NYS business.

If you're going that way, stop in at the Todd HIll rest area Taste NY Store, right in the middle of the parkway to get some lunch and LiXTiK Lip Balm on your way up to Albany.

In The Egg at The Empire State Plaza is the Visitor's Center, which is another Taste NY Store, carrying LiXTiK Lip Balm.
