its a beard off – gotta give this one a plug

I’ve noticed a beard revival amongst aussie males but also across the globe. My guy won’t be caught dead without his pride and joy. Perhaps its driven by the increase in hairy musicians or the bearded men competitions shown on tv, or perhaps the guys from the Duck Dynasty. Well, perhaps not that bunch of loaded hillbillies. Whatever it is, its becoming a huge trend fellas.

Along with this is the rise of hair care products to help the health and vitality of ones tresses. Check out this home made product already helping blokes all over the world. Reckon its the next big thing hey.

Do I like beards? As long as he isn’t saving his breakfast crumbs for lunch.

We’re building,  or rather, my aussie bloke is building an extra room. He is being taught by a friend, it’s obviously very hard work if they need this many beers.

I just hope my room turns out okay.

Needless to say, my kids aren’t playing in this area today. Its normally the activities room. Not a hint of safety precautions visible here.

News Mash: The evolution of human monogamy to ‘wedleases’

Wow… interesting concept. What happens when kids are involved/occur during the wedlease?

Spending ones life…

With one person?

That’s it?

Baffling.

At least…

When it comes to Science:

[via ScienceNews]Evolution of mammalian monogamy remains mysterious ~By Cristy Gelling

Why some mammalian species choose to spend their lives with the same mates has long baffled scientists — and will probably continue to do so as two new massive studies present contradictory results.

One group of researchers says monogamy evolved in primates to counter the threat of males killing babies to boost their siring success. The other team concludes that mammals, including primates, become monogamous when females live far away from one another.

The differences in the studies have raised eyebrows. “They do seem to be saying the opposite thing,” says Anthony Di Fiore, an evolutionary anthropologist at the University of Texas at Austin. “It’s interesting because they use very, very similar methods,” Di Fiore says.

The two groups also disagree on…

camping – a streetcar named “bella!”

So this is a funny story… looking back.

My father was over from the UK, meeting my bloke for the first time.

We were camping and naturally, he drank lots of piss. By the end of the night he was the last man standing, or rather sitting, half awake on a camping chair.

So like the charming man he is, he decided that jumping onto the blown up mattress in our tent, and waking me and our sleeping baby up was a bad idea. Well perhaps that’s how his brain worked, you can never be sure. So, he found somewhere else to sleep.

Where better than the car boot.

Shortly after this, while all was quiet in the camping ground I hear, “Bella!” that’s me. Followed 30 seconds later by “Bella!” followed a minute later by CLUNK! He’d shut the car boot. It must’ve been pretty cold.

Given by the reduction in noise I assumed he was inside the car rather than outside, and frankly, at that point in time I was happy for him to stay there. I went back to sleep.

A few hours later, the sun now up, I went in search of him. I opened the boot to find him snuggled up under the dog blanket.

I left the boot open so that every passer by on their way to the toilet block could see who woke them up at 4am.

Luckily for him, my Dad was a pretty cruisey bloke and the whole saga didn’t really phase him.
