November, Movember Already!
Did you notice more moustaches on the faces of the people around you?
What is Movember, you may ask?
Movember (the month formerly known as November) is a moustache growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for men's health issues such as prostate and testicular cancer. WestJet, among others, decided to participate. They put mustaches on their airplanes. .
We also hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving and Remembrance Day with their family this month. However you decided to celebrate, we do hope you reaffirmed your family connections.
Grey Cup Games
Were you glued to the TV for the Canadian Football League's 100th Grey Cup game? Al and the guys traveled to Toronto to Rogers Centre for their annual "Guy's Trip". They said they had a great time, and I suspect that is so as they were so tired when they arrived home. Oh.. the winner was..... (drumroll please).
The Argonauts defeated the Stampeders 35–22 to win their sixteenth Grey Cup title.
Al's team (the BC Lions) did not make it this year, but he was rooting for the Stampeders from Calgary, so he was a little disappointed in the games outcome, but had a great time nonetheless.
