    Weird Bill O'Reilly tribute

    I can't tell if this guy loves or hates Bill O'Reilly. I actually think that maybe it is made with love. Either way, humorous enough photos of Glenn Beck and Bill (and the song is good). http://youtu.be/KWS4lR3Z6JY

    Penhaligon's Castile

    I haven't heard much of this scent here at the B&B. Has anyone tried it? The reason I ask... I absolutely LOVE the scent of 4711 cologne...but it lasts maybe 10 minutes. I have heard/read that Castile is similar to (some say is a better version of) the 4711 scent with great staying power...
