Movember Day One

Day One of Movember

I am going to keep a daily record of the progress, mogress if you will, of my Movember challenge. A bit like orthodontics, you don't see the results instantly, you have to work at it methodically over a prolonged time and put a bit of effort in to get the best results.

  2. Use a ...
