No-Shave November Is Here: Ladies, Are You OK With All That Extra Hair?!? [POLL]

 

No-Shave November is a great cause. Seriously, anything that raises awareness of and funding toward cancer research is a great program as far as I'm concerned. That being said, I'm not a fan, ha! Let's lay it out there... most men just can't grow attractive beards. And, being that these men only grow a beard for thirty days of the year, most don't know the proper up-keep of a beard. It often turns into scratchy hair and misplaced food particles, getting progressively worse as the month goes on, ha!.

So, ladies, I ask you... Yay or Nay when it comes to YOUR man participating in No-Shave November?

Mountain Workshops “One Eye Open” [VIDEO]

The Mountain Workshops have done an amazing job documenting so many great stories about our Owensboro community. I came across one today and I already knew who it was. Well, I don't personally know this family, but I have followed their story, like so many others have, thru social media.

T-bird is an 11 year-old Owensboro boy, who has been fighting brain cancer since 2009. His battle has been, to be honest, painful to watch. As a mother, when I see the stories of these innocent children, I can't help but think of their parents and how hard it must for them.

"One Eye Open" allows you inside the life of T-Bird's Mom and the daily struggles she faces while caring for her son.

Chad Demonstrates The Euro Body Shaper at The Kentucky State Fair

This thing will work out your entire body.  I am not kidding.  I was on this thing for about 30 seconds and I broke into a sweat.  At opening day of the Kentucky State Fair last week, I happened across the Euro Body Shaper and thought I would give it a try.  Honestly, I thought it would make a really funny video for the web and that I would look like a complete fool.  I knew my behind was going to shake like I was working for the Chippendales, but I was okay with it.  What I didn't expect was a ridiculously hard and calorie-burning workout.  WATCH!
