Working through an issue that I need some help on. Anyone out there have an idea?

I need people to game with. None of my gaming friends play SCL yet... I'm causal so only in here and there. I pay on steam.

Also I run a TS server we can use. Comment on this thread and let's get a good group going of people who can just do quick drop in games!

A close friend to our family is in dire need of help during a rough time for their son.

Please take some time to learn about their story and help where you can! Even it's it's just re-sharing it out.

Didn't realize +Ronald Jenkees​ was on Google play music! Do happy it is tough!

First heard him on +Jupiter Broadcasting​ and loved the music there. Now I can share some Jenkees with the kids for background noise and our "dance nights" that mostly include me spinning around flying the kids. Lol but it's fun!

A close friend of mine and their family need help rebuilding after a storm on the island of Vanuatu. They lost a good deal of their crops and must do some rebuilding of their homes. Please take some time and donate what you can to help.

So, a comparison between my two razors.

The Renren with the light strop was my first razor. This being my first I didn't really know what to expect. So I shaved with it and started to learn. After a few weeks I thought I would look into honing it because I was having issues with shaving my upper lip and chin. After some research I figured out it might be the razor. The whole kit (razor, strop, brush, bowl, and soap) cost about $50. This was an inexpensive razor but a good one to learn what I want. I also ended up picking up some lather from the art of shaving at the mall here in town.

The Ralf Aust Solingen with 3" Red Latigo strop from Straight razor designs was my next purchase. It cost me about about $150. So a bit more expensive but you notice the difference. It shaves much more smooth and is noticeably sharper. And the strop is wide enough that it covers the razor so I don't have to do an X pattern. My lesson is that it is worth it to have a really good razor.

Now I'm on to learning my face and his to shave it. It's like learning a new skill. You have to keep up with it and try to figure out what works best for you. I never used to think about how my facial hair grows and what angles to shave in. It's interesting. And more so it's kind of relaxing and you end up in almost a meditative focus when shaving. It's really a treat. I really like shaving now.

So that's my experience with straight razor shaving and maybe a little of why I bother for those of you who are wondering.

So , a few weeks ago I started shaving with a razor. Leslie got me a starter razor. It was a Renren. I was having issues getting the shave I wanted so I took to the forums and found out that this was a really cheap razor that won't really hold an edge and might not be shave ready when I got it.
The forums I ended up on all recommended SRD... Finding out that it meant straight razor designs. So I took a look to see what I could find. Well I found a nice razor/strop combo that a ton of people recommended. So I put in my order (upgrading to a 3" strop) and asked them if they could rush it a bit so I can take it with me on vacation Thursday. Got a shipped email this morning and with 2 day shopping it should be here just in time!

Thank you +Straight Razor Designs - Imperial Shaving

So, I've been shaving with a straight razor for about 2 weeks now. I could use some help.

1: how do I keep my moles? I gave 2 that sick out. They are circled in the picture. I keep cutting them.
2: I am having problems getting a close shave on my upper lip and chin. (green arrows in picture.) It's like the razor won't cut the hair. I'm guessing I need to hone the blade. My wife got me a cheap starter blade... So that could be part of it.
