This is a pet peeve of mine that just never seems to go away and I would be interested in what others think, especially different age groups. In short, I hate being called by my first name by people…Continue
"I too am a confirmed bachelor. Modern American women are just not worth the trouble. Yes, it is difficult but worth it to me. Yes, holidays are difficult but that gets easier with time. I hate it when people assume I am gay. Depending on the…"
"Hello, I see there hasn't been much activity in this group. If anyone still checks in let me know. I'm thinking about moving to Coeur d'Alene next year. It Would be nice to connect with someone from N. Idaho."
"No, no, no. You guys are missing the whole point. This is the last hurrah! Being Catholic, there will have to be a funeral mass. Make sure that church is just lousey with black crape, get a bishop (at least) to say the mass (black vastments, of…"

So I grew a pretty nice beard last winter, did not shave the face (did shave the neck) from September to March. It was fairly gnarly by March. Looking for some good direction on opinions. Style a beard yourself or pay the $5.00 and have a barber do it? If you style it yourself, where did you learn and what do you use. I am a bald guy, short, athletic build.
