Happy Movember!

The Mo, slang for moustache, and November come together each year for Movember.

Movember challenges men to change their appearance and the face of men’s health by growing a moustache. The rules are simple, start Movember 1st clean-shaven and then grow a moustache for the entire month. The moustache becomes the ribbon for men’s health, the means by which awareness and funds are raised for cancers that affect men. Much like the commitment to run or walk for charity, the men of Movember commit to growing a moustache for 30 days.

The idea for Movember was sparked in 2003 over a few beers in Melbourne, Australia. The plan was simple – to bring the moustache back as a bit of a joke and do something for men’s health. No money was raised in 2003, but the guys behind the Mo realized the potential a moustache had in generating conversations about men’s health. Inspired by the women around them and all they had done for breast cancer, the Mo Bros set themselves on a course to create a global men’s health movement.

In 2004 the campaign evolved and focused on raising awareness and funds for the number one cancer affecting men – prostate cancer. 432 Mo Bros joined the movement that year, raising $55,000 for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia – representing the single largest donation they had ever received.

The Movember moustache has continued to grow year after year, expanding to the US, UK, Canada, New Zealand, Ireland, Spain, South Africa, the Netherlands and Finland.

In 2009, global participation of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas climbed to 255,755, with over one million donors raising $42 Million US equivalent dollars for Movember’s global beneficiary partners.

So who is going to participate?

(No word if Jamie was involved in the creation of Movember, but as Aussies and beer were involved there is a good chance of it!)


What Men Should Look For In A Woman

So here are my thoughts on what a guy wants from a woman as requested by Wonder Woman

I think that perhaps the most important attribute you could look for in a woman is one who loves to give massages. And I mean ACTUALLY loves to give them, not just gives them at the beginning of a relationship or only reluctantly as a way to keep her man.

It’s pretty simple: if the girl doesn’t enjoy giving massages, then you are doomed, because she will eventually stop giving them to you as she knows that both of you are in that part of the relationship where you are willing to turn a blind eye to little, but important, details.

Ladies: Learn to love giving massages. Touch is one of the major love languages and your guy will love you for speaking to that love language.

Men: Remember to look for a woman who not only loves but is enthusiastic about massaging

And, of course, by massaging I mean BJs and cooking
