    Paul - I'm trying to drop the web site address, but TSD software keeps turning it into the Youtube video. Just a silly commercial for Old Spice. No French horns, but it has whistling.
    Google "Old Spice Commercial ft Bruce Campbell" if you're curious.

    Yes, I remember seeing that one! He's great, but the whistling omits part of the jingle....gimme de French Horns that do the whole thing!!

    Cracking shave with the Empire today, didn't have to fidget round with the blade exposure, spot on from the first stroke.
    Holy cow!, for a vegan soap this stuff is brilliant, I'm looking forward to trying their donkey milk and tallow.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    I've read where St. "Jack's" is the best of the Bay Rums. It's a "mind-varier" of course, but SJ always appears to be at or near the top.

    I predict @Yehuda D will come on here to correct my misspelling of Dimanche. Something doesn't look right about it.

    It is top tier but I prefer Dominica and Meehan's.
