    "THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME" CONTEST


    brought to you by your friends at:

    West Coast Shaving



    YEAH BABY!!!


    "It's time for a Grand Prize Showcase Contest which I believe, will be really quite cool."

    "Hey man, you know all the coolest things come from England, baby. Why just look at me.

    Won't you have a look at all this groovy shave gear that good bloke, John, from West Coast Shaving has donated to this brilliant gig. You don't want to miss out on this one baby because its gonna be a smash. Oh, and the Merkur HD razor is sold in England too."


    "All of this gear will surely get your mojo working. The DR Harris Arlington line is Mrs. Kensington's favorite."

    -Austin Powers




    Thanks Austin. You heard it B&B'ers. Straight from the International Man of Mystery himself.


    Well here it is B&B'ers. You have looked at it. You have fantasized about it arriving on your doorstep. You have even thought about wearing a bowler hat and carrying a Briggs umbrella if you win this prize.

    Let's face it. Winning this prize would be one of the best things that ever happened to you, right? ( ). So let's play:






    To enter this contest all you have to do is post in this thread and tell us what is the best thing that has ever happened to you. It can be anything (meeting your wife, the birth of a child, hitting a grand slam in little league, finding a mint Gillette 195 at a thrift store for $2.50 (If you did, I'll give you triple what you paid ), or becoming a member at B&B . You can even post a picture if you like. It can be whatever it is you want it to be.


    Then, next Sunday evening, we will rev up random.org and select a number. If that number matches your post number AND you have complied with the rules for entering this contest, you win. If the post of the number selected has not complied with the rules then we will rev up random.org again to select a winner.


    If your number is selected and you have complied with the rules of the contest you will win the following luxurious shave line-up:



    A bar of DR Harris Bath Soap.

    .

    Your new Arlington Shave Soap in a beautiful wood bowl.



    Your new Simpson Chubby 2 Best Shaving Brush



    Your new Gold Merkur HD razor.




    Your new bottle of DR Harris Arlington aftershave.




    Your new bottle of DR Harris Arlington Cologne.



    (This prize package is valued at over $300.00!)



    Only one entry per person. Multiple entries will be disqualified. This contest is CONUS only due to USPS restrictions.





    So get your entry in and tell us what is the best thing that ever happened to you.


    Back to you Austin:

    "Oh.. and one more thing, baby. The good people here at B&B have been working on the Carnival proper dobber. Show your appreciation by donating to that ab-fab organization Operation Smile

    The best thing for me was getting married to my wife.

    That woman is the best thing that ever happened to me.

    The best thing that happened to me was around 18 and a half years ago. I was born! I mean srsly, what else could be better?

    (*Edit, If one looks at birth being the best thing ever, one could say my life has been going down hill my whole life :P lol)

    The best thing that ever happened to me was joining the United States Navy.

    That step put me on the path for all of the great things in my life that followed;

    The training I received got me a fabulous job that I love.

    I met my beautiful and loving wife as a result of that job.

    I found my way here to B&B as a result of both of the above.

    One link in a chain that has provided the both of us a good life with which we are both happy, and what more can you ask than that?

    The best thing that ever happened to me?? It was back in high school. I was a mediocre freshman trumpet player, when the tuba player in our band, whom I'll call "Phil" (because that was his name), casually mentioned that we could use another tuba player for the following year. I don't know why, but I volunteered for it. That moment changed my life completely, and set my life on course. If not for that, I never would have majored in music, never would have met the friend who eventually introduced me to the woman I will someday marry, and would never have the job I enjoy so much. So yeah, I'd say that was the best thing that ever happened to me, so far, at least.

    Although, the time I found $240 in $20 bills on the sidewalk was pretty awesome, too!!

    The best thing that ever happened to me was becoming engaged to my wonderful Fiance. Pretty soon this will be overshadowed with the wedding, but that won't happen until May.

    Default The Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me

    Serving in the military! Got me out of the small town I lived in and out into the world. Made me grow up! Made me self-reliant. Taught me responsibility like nothing ever has. Met some wonderful people and visited some wonderful places! Some of my favorites:

    Nassau - Bahamas
    Nova Scotia - Canada
    Palma de Mallorca-Spain
    Cannes & Marseilles - France
    Rome & Trieste - Italy
    Rhodes - Greece
    Jerusalem & Bethlehem - Israel

    I just wish I had the appreciation for fine beer and wetshaving back then!

    That's easy, my mother. For every one thing she couldn't teach me, she taught me ten other things I would never have known. Thanks Mum, RIP.

    Without a doubt, the birth of my extravagantly awesome daughter is the best thing that ever happened to me. She's 17 months old tomorrow, and she's smart, funny, beautiful, fast, and eager to learn.

    Here's a picture of her with her 96-year-old great grandfather, at Halloween.

    My future wife accepting my nervous request for a date (she was and is totally out of my league). This led to the best 13 years of my life and my beautiful daughter. Everything else good that happens is a result of this.
