It's all about Movember

The month of Movember, formerly known as November, is when men donate their faces for growing and grooming the best moustaches they can for 30 days to raise awareness for men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer. By growing and grooming a moustache, men (also known as Mo Bros) effectively become walking, talking billboards for men’s health raising funds and awareness along the way. Women (also known as Mo Sistas) can also participate by signing up as team captains, helping to raise funds, and encouraging the men in their life to take action when it comes to their health.

Here are a few tips on how to grow a moustache:

* First, choose what moustache you want and see if it will suit you. You can edit a photo of yourself and photoshop on a fake moustache, or you can ask friends and family how they think you would look.

* Consider growing a beard first, and then trim the beard into a moustache.

* Shave off any facial hair that doesn’t contribute to your moustache.

At the end of the month, Movember participants join together to celebrate their Mo growing efforts by attending one of the official Movember Gala Parties. Or, they can choose to host their own event with friends and/or colleagues.
 
Three years ago, I thought Movember was just a social convention where every man had to grow a moustache if they wanted, and I thought I could grow a moustache for fun. I found out there is a legitimate Foundation dedicated to “changing the face of men’s health”.

Here at Mix 107, Alex Tostowaryk and Mike LeBlanc have volunteered to grow a moustache for Movember. They are partnered with the staff at Jiffy Lube.

Frosty Fort Saskatchewan

2014 11 17 frostyfortsaska Frosty Monday Morning in Fort Saskatchewan. Photo via twitter @ianhunt94

Winter isn't always cold and dark.........it can be very beautiful as well.

As such the case Monday morning with heavy frost covering all the trees around Fort Saskatchewan made for a beautiful morning.

We're in that season and we know that winter can feel long but there's always a lot to do around the Heartland.

To see what's going on and what's coming up, check out the Polar Patrol page on FortSaskOnline.com. 

And if you capture great winter moments, please share....we'd love to see them! 

Here's mine:

Remembrance Day 2014

2014 11 14 cenataph

The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month…

This is an important phrase depicting an important date and time in history. The First World War ended on November 11, 1918, at 11 am. This was brought on by the signing of the Armistice Agreement by Germany and the Allied Forces. As a result, November 11 was named Armistice Day.

From 1921 to 1930, the remembering was held during the entire week in which November 11 fell. Then in 1931, a bill was passed that stated to only hold Armistice Day on the day of November 11. The bill also changed the name to Remembrance Day. Today, we continue to pay respects to those who served in the past as well as those who are currently fighting for freedom. Also, we pause for a moment of silence to remember the loved ones we’ve lost.

I went to the Remembrance Day ceremony at the legion on Tuesday. Everyone had to stand outside in a big circle around the Cenotaph. Then the circle opened and Troops and families of the deceased, along with the Mayor marched up to the Cenotaph. Then they proceeded to lay wreaths and crosses with poppies on the ground around the Cenotaph.

It was really cold that day to be outside for an hour….but I’m sure that doesn’t measure up to being in a war fighting for your country’s freedom.
