Last night I sat and watched a movie with my wife...
And I seriously thought about asking a large man to take a metal pipe to my head rather than see this train wreck of a movie to its end.
But then I thought of my wife and kids, and realized that I had quite a bit to live for, and the resulting facial contusions left by a brutal bludgeoning would have a lasting effect on my employ-ability, and in turn, the higher education of my children.
So in an effort to regain some perspective, today I offer the video from last week's St. Baldrick's shaving event. It's no House Bunny, but I have to believe it helped some kids somewhere, and so did all of you. This isn't an exciting video, but I hope you...feel it.
Props to Summer for letting me post whatever I wanted today...I hope you all enjoy this video of my removing my hair, like Samson before me. Ok...maybe since I don't work out, this isn't a good comparison.

posthumous pointerTo laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one's self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - this is to have succeeded. - Emerson
