Movember

kudelka's mo day 1
I’ve made a belated start at participating in Movember – which basically involves growing a dodgy mo to promote sick bloke issues.

The money raised by Movember will be used to change the face of men’s health by creating awareness and funding research into prostate cancer and male depression.

I’ve shaved off my usual dodgy beard and will do my best to look like a seventies test cricketer by the end of the month. I’m dedicating my nascent beer-strainer to Pip Agnew, who finally called it a draw with prostate cancer earlier this year after giving it a damn good kicking over quite a few years. A better bloke you wouldn’t meet and he had the grace, taste and style to never grow a mo himself, so I’ll do it for him.

If you want to sling a bit of money towards a good cause, go to http://www.movember.com/au/sponsor, enter my Rego number which is 44215 and your credit card details. All donations of $2 and over are tax deductible.

If you want to make a late start yourself, go to http://www.movember.com/ and sign yourself up.

John Howard turns 35!

Well, 101 uses for a John Howard does anyway. Yep, over a third of the way to the magic 101, when I hope all you good people are prepared to ascend to a better place (make sure you have your papers in order – I think heaven is into offcloud processing these days).

Go have a squizz at Johnny the Reverse Cartographer.
