Attention all thee who pass by this blog – please read and, if you can, throw a few sheckels at this here good cause.

Movember.

Where men around the world grow dodgy moustaches to raise awareness of mens health.

You see, men, being men, don’t like to go to the doctor if they’re feeling depressed or have trouble peeing – its a man thing.  Trouble is, that typically male thing of ‘it’ll be okay’ or head in the sand and wait for it to go away actually kills loads of men every year.  In fact, prostate cancer kills just about as many men as breast cancer does women.    In fact, close to 3,300 men die of prostate cancer in Australia each year and one in eight men will experience depression in their lifetime.

Men just don’t want to go to the doctor to have a ‘look see’ if things don’t feel right, or open up and discuss with a stranger that they might not be feeling all that happy and maybe they might need help.

So, in order to change that and change the paths of fathers and sons across this scorched land, I’m shaving off my beard and growing the most ridiculous moustache for the whole month of November.

Sponsor me here please, you’ll feel good, even if it’s only $1

To get it started – off came the beard this morning

Here’s before (taken last year, but I looked the same earlier)

and here’s at 11am this morning (dammit, I think I gained weight in a year!)

I’ll do an update every week so you can see how much of a plum I look.
