This morning Ron came out of the bathroom looking like this. He told me that it was is support of Movember. I agreed to let him go to church with the moustache on the condition that if anyone asked or commented about it he had to tell them it was in support of encouraging all men to get checked out for prostate cancer.

"This Movember - the month formerly known as November - men across Canada will grow a moustache to raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer research. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, and one in seven Canadian males will be diagnosed in their lifetime. In fact, 24,700 will be diagnosed this year and 4,300 will die from prostate cancer this year. Movember was established to bring much needed attention to this serious disease, especially among males aged 25 to 40." Read the rest of the article here.
So ladies if you are reading this remind the men in your life to go see their doctor for a check up soon.

"To laugh often and much, to win
the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false
friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, or a garden patch... to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This
is to have succeeded!" - Emerson
