Beards and peace and all that

So I was thinking of growing my beard out again. I usually have a bit o' growth each week, 'cause I hate to shave. But I normally get the razor out a couple times a week so I'm presentable at important stuff. However, I've been seein' shots of Gregg Popovich - coach of the San Antonio Spurs - with this wildly long beard.... and I thought it might be time to give it another go, long and scraggly. We'll see.

Anyway, I was trying to find a picture of Gregg's beard on google, and I can't believe they don't have a current picture of a coach in the NBA. But while looking for it, I stumbled onto a coupla wild sites.

One million peace signs is simply awesome. I'm going to have to add my pic to their collection.

And that is where I came across the beards for peace website. Ha! Even more of a reason to grow my beard out - to protest war.

Then I happened onto a pic of good ol' Bob Ross. How many of you used to watch The Joy of Painting? Talk about a 'peaceful, easy feeling.' I LOVED watching his painting show. It was like therapy. Apparently Bob died in 1995 of lymphoma. Too bad, because I think HE would have made a good president.

So... there ya go. Peace out; and in; and even on your face, if you like.
