I usually let grow in the winter, been doing that for the last decade or so. Keep the UL warm during outside activities. Haven't started this years yet.

After watching an entire month of NFL players wearing pink, I've had it up to here with tokenism-for-good-causes.

Living in New England, and close to Boston, I think I've seen enough facial hair to last me awhile. GO SOX!

Of course, to reciprocate, women should show up with mustaches all month. Wouldn't that be awful!

No. Too many odd looks when I let my facial hair grow.

Facial hair, tweed and penny-farthings just seem to go together.

Not this year. Started it and saw all that white hair and thought that I look old enough already. Then my wife said she would stop shaving to follow me --- well it came off soon after.

Smogsteve, think of how much money you guys would save if both of you stopped shaving. Heck, in a couple of years you might have enuf in the bank to buy some bike bling.

When I was 52, I shaved off the beard I'd had for most of 30 years, because it was snowy white and made me look like Santa. Since then, whenever i go even one day without shaving, my wife complains about being scratched by the stubble, so, no 'Movember' for me. A month without shaving would be a month without...um...well, you know.

Every Vember is a Movember for me.
