Movember November!

As many of you know, Adam and I departed from The States on October 30th which got us into Australia the morning of November 1st. That day marked the first day of a month long charity to raise money for men's health, specifically prostate cancer and depression.

Men participating in this month long charity show their support by raising money and sporting a super fine mustache, also known as Mo Bros. At first, we had no idea this was the case and just thought that we stepped back in time to the 80's where everyone reminded me of my father and his mustache. Luckily,  the truth became known and a sense of relief fell over both Adam and myself.

Prime example number one... our recently acquired awesome Aussie friend Max (and his fabulous fiance Elma).

With only a week left to go I'm kinda sad to see it end.  For more information on Movember or how to get it started in your town check out their website. Its totally legit!


  1. Hi Sharon,

    We have the same thing here - porn-stashes all around. How are you doing? If you ever get into trouble out there, give Tony's mom (Mary) a call and tell her who you are. 02-9630-3176 She lives in Parramatta (outside of Sydney). I hope you learn to love the country as much as I do, and feel free to drop me a line anytime.


  2. Hey, Let us comment on the slang too. Wait until you get "rock melon = cantaloupe; take the piss = make a joke; ta = thank you" and realize that aussies like to add -y to everything... Lippy (for lipstick); sunnys (for sunglasses). :)

  3. Tal thanks for all the slang. Do you know what they call dessert pies here? Everyone things we want meat pies! We have other friends in Paramatta! We will have to check it out.
