Eating with a full grown moustache can be a bit of a challenge. I myself once firmly and painfully bit down on my moustache while eating a sandwich. Accumulating crumbs and samples of sauces and
Here’s a fun music parody for those of us who tangle with moustaches, one way or another.
If you are looking for online picture galleries or web sites for just about anything, add the word “tumblr” to the search terms. This domain is the world’s picture place. Any interest, including the handlebar moustache.
This is a really great collection of pics of our favorite patch of hair. Imagine and endless page of good pics of handlebar moustaches. AND you can submit your own great pics of your own great handlebar moustache.
The following is copied from a longer article here. This is all that referred to the moustaches. Who cares about the rest, right?
“Tombstone has, hands down, the most handsome and manicured group of mustaches I have ever seen assembled in a film.

This is an amusing article looking at how the moustache was an essential element in the building of the British Empire, and how the Empire faded when the more awesome moustache styles were let go.
I get the feeling that the well-moustached or bearded face may be instinctively recognized by humans as mature, masculine, powerful, having authority and wisdom. There is another article posted here that lends credence to such a social and psychological phenomenon.
An interesting quote from the article:
“And the moustache became imperative because it was seen as a potent symbol of virility. As one contemporary noted, Indians looked upon “the bare faces of the English with amazement and contempt”, regarding as na-mard (unmanly) countenances emasculated by the razor.”
In Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing a leading character Beatrice embarrasses a young soldier by referring to him as “the un-bearded one”, as he was bare faced or could not grow a good face full, and was considered a bit less than manly or less than mature because of it. Could it be that we are wired from ancient times to recognize significant facial hair as a necessary sign of manliness, maturity, power and authority?
Let that be a lesson to us all!

“If my boyfriend sees this, all is lost.”
March 21 is my birthday, and as of 3-21-2012 it is been 645 days from the start date of my handlebar moustache adventure – since I stopped cutting it short. Thats:
1 year, 9 months, 6 days.
or 55,728,000 seconds.
or 928,800 minutes.
or 15,480 hours.

It’s great to read when this blog inspires others to try a handlebar moustache on for size, and even better when they are encouraged to stick it out from thin to thick. I was gratified to read this pingback to one of my posts encouraging patience when growing in a handlebar moustache, as well as some interesting perspective on attaining goals.
