Move over October, it's 'Movember'

November 2, 2012

October is over and so is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  We will no longer see pink gloves on football players, pink sections of our newspaper or pink ribbons on lapels. What you will see are mustaches. 

November, now referred to as "Movember," is a month for male cancer health awareness.  Prostate cancer and testicular cancer are heavily focused on during the month.  The idea of "Movember" came from Australia orginally. 

Here's how it works: To participate, a man just needs to grow out his moustache during the month of November.  While changing your face you are also changing the face of men's cancer health.  Read more about "Movember" at latimes.com

 

I can grow a mustache in about 12 hours.  I am trying to decide if I want to participate.  Facial hair makes me look kind of creepy, though.

Should I give in and grow a mustache this month?

Are you or your significant other planning to participate in "Movember"?

Do you think this a good way to raise awareness about men's health?

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
