I'd be remiss if I didn't draw my faithful readers' attention to an annual event that begins today. It's December, and with the cold and the snow comes the rebirth of a revolution. I'm of course talking about No Shaving In December, NSID to the initiated. Today I was thrilled to learn that my suggestion to grab-up http://www.noshavingindecember.org didn't go unnoticed. I warn you that some of the images you'll see there may not be appropriate for all audiences, in particular the early days of new growth, and perhaps the naked cheeks and chins of the first day and last shave.
