[And if you don't follow me on Facebook or Twitter, here are two videos me and my stache did with The Social. The first is the longer segment on late night snacking, and the latter a quickie on the pros and cons bedtime boozing has on sleep.]

Thanks to everyone who has donated to my Movember fundraising! Thrilled to report as of the time of typing this my fundraising is now up to $3,267! Thrilled a bit too that my itch factory can come off on Sunday.

And if you haven't yet donated, and you enjoy my blog, a blog which is now and will forever be free from advertising and cost, please consider supporting natural forms of birth control by clicking here.]
