Happy New Year!

I have done all of you an injustice. I have deprived you of the one thing that made 2011 the best year ever: Bits About Beards. I started a blog in late September and made my potential beard the main focus of the blog. Due to my inexperience of blogging/beard-growing and the ridicule from my so called "friends", I thought I was done forever. But with 2012 being a new year, I will start the year anew and make the year a beautiful portrait and I'm starting with a close-to-blank canvas.

Is this a New Years Resolution? Maybe. But better than that, it's a new start. And I plan to take 2012 by the metaphorical bull's horns.

To show you what my face has been up to all this time, Feast your Eyes on this Beast!

Ain't Got What It Takes?

Today's post is for all those boys and girls. YES! Girls too. I found the picture and information below while I'll I was doing some research for a future post on And to my amazement, I found that YOU can have a beard too. Whether, you're a female, male with work restrictions, or a male with genetic ineptitude (it's a real word, I looked it up), you can also have a beard for a low, low price of $39.99. 

"What practicle purpose do beards really have?", you ask. Tons.
Going to an outdoor game and it's colder than shit? Your face is as warm as a McDonald's Coffee in your lap.
Skying? These things are better than an actual ski mask, and they don't make you look like you're going to rob the next convenience store you come accross.

Check these things out at:

You'll get them right away and you don'thave to wait 6 months like us REAL men.

"What's in a name"

Never thought the choice of naming a child could predict the future and determine the likelyhood for a that child to sport beard when older? Think again. These are names that will change the future as we know it. And whether you knew it or like it, these following names will determine if your child will grow up to have a beard:
I dare you to try to think of two people with these names and not find a beard in the bunch.

Roseanne (yes, women have beards too, wanted or not)

Just to name a few...

So, if you don't prefer your child to sport a nice, full-grown, rugged beard, avoid the great names above and choose a name like Howie.

Day 1 & 2

Day 1: Decision Day

Today marks the most important day for a male's face: the day he decides not to shave even though he should on this particular day. I've decided to start growing my beard on this day for a couple of reasons. First, my sister's wedding was this past weekend, and I couldn't look like a bum. Second, it's getting cold soon, and by the time Oktoberfest rides by, I'll be sporting a nice, warm beard (it's nice to savor those flavors too). 

Day 2: Not a Day to Forget
Today shouldn't seem too important. It's only one day past the most important day: Decision Day, and it's not like I have to consider trimming yet. But, it seems to be a little more important than just the day after Decision Day. Today, I have been rubbing my face a tad. So, we've all heard that beards can be itchy, this is somewhat true. It's only true for a week or so. But it's not the itching that I am worried about. It's the skin underneath the beard that spikes my attention today. How does one keep the face as clean as before, but still keep the facial hair moisturized? In the past, I have had trouble with skin breakouts when I grow my beard. It's not as noticable to the audience as I think it is, but I still want to keep it under control. Any Ideas on products?

Couple of places that striked my fancy...
