    My Little Guy's First Shave

    My 21 month old had watched me shave a few times, but he never stayed more than a few seconds. Yesterday, he was watching with unabashed wonder. I asked if he wanted to shave too. He said "yes!" So prepped his face with mildly warm water from my EJ Badger and that solicited a few giggles. I let...

    In Celebration of 10K Posts - A Modest Giveaway

    Hello Gents, Never thought I'd be typing this, but I just made it to 10,000 posts! I consider this quite a momentous occasion.

    Are automatic watch winders a waste of money?

    Been looking through some old threads, and I've seen both side of the coin on this one. And what is B&B for, if not re-hashing a topic and beating an already deceased thoroughbred? Are watch winders just for guys who are too lazy to wind/adjust time when their watch has been sitting too long...

    Invicta Automatic Diver as 1st Automatic Watch

    So gents, I think I've finally gotten worn down and wish to dip a toe in the waters of automatic watches. I've had nothing but battery-powered Fossil's in my life, so I'm not a watch snob. I was reading a list of 10 nice watches under $100 and this one caught my (see link). What are your...

    Experience with Doane Paper?

    Has anybody used/heard about Doane Paper? http://doanepaper.bigcartel.com/ I'm looking for something better than your average legal pad. Something just irks me about using a cheap legal pad with a nice pen. I could always go the Rhodia route, but why not diversify? Thanks!

    Wedding Gift from some friends

    And what great friends they are! Received the humidor and about half the sticks pictured in it from a generous group of friends right before my wedding last month. Thought I would share pictures of their immense generosity here. I was, and am still, blown away by the gesture.

    Catchiest Guitar Riffs

    So I was driving today and "Rebel Rebel" came on the radio. I'm not a David Bowie fan by any stretch of the imagination, but I always find myself turning this song way, way up. The guitar riff in it is just so catchy and really grabs you. In the spirit of my realization today, I thought I'd make...

    BL Discussion for August: Your dream custom pipe

    I'm inspired by the '14 LE pipe to propose this discussion. If you could go absolutely bonkers with money, what would your dream pipe be (material, stem, mount, shape, size, etc, etc...)? I'm going to need a nice night of dreaming before I put mine down in writing though. Fire away with your...
