Ikea expansion in Ottawa


What recession?


Facial hair

Bloody-hell… enough of writing about those idiots at City Hall or in the ATU

For those of you who know me personally or have clicked on photos of me either through this site or my Facebook page, you will note two things about my physical appearance:

  • I shave my head
  • I have what is commonly known as a “goatee”

I shave my head for a variety of reasons and quite like it but my head is, uh, quite round – much like this guy’s:

Anyhoo, I am getting a little bored with my current beard style and want to change it.  A full beard is out of the question since I don’t have the luxury of a full complement of facial hair outside the immediate area around my mouth and under my nose. A full beard would, for one thing, be very grey and for another would be sparse and not very tidy.

This is what I have now (though much greyer than this fellow’s)


What to do?  I am thinking about this one:


But I am afraid I don’t have enough thickness toward my ears.

And this one is pretty cool:

goateeBut it’s really just a variation of my current do without the ‘stache.

I’m leaning toward this:

Ahhhh… just as an aside, it felt real nice to avoid discussion about the transit strike… my blood pressure is thanking me!
