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.
