Its taken 30 days and I have managed, to my surprise, to grow a ginger Mo in support of Movember.

I didn’t quite reach my supposed lookaliki but I don’t think it was a bad effort. Next time I’ll leave my hair for a few months before.

If you fancy donating then you can do so here https://www.movember.com/uk/donate/payment/member_id/6154809/ I only need £3 to reach £400 which would be great. The team have just passed £2000 which is awesome.

If you are in Dublin then we have a meeting on tonight at the Microsoft office.

The subject of the talk is

“Almost all queries have to do two things, get data and join it together. In this session we will look at the aspects of these that most people think they know but in reality don’t. “

If you think you know SQL then you should come along and we'll see if you are right

Hope to see you there.

I’m growing my first ever moustache for Movemb http://uk.movember.com/

You can see my mo space and pictures of the thing growing on my lip here http://uk.movember.com/mospace/6154809

If you would like to support me then please do make a donation and make this worth it.

Were not even half way through the month and not sure how I’ll get to the end. Please contribute to keep me motivated not to slip with the razor.

 

If anyone knows where I can get a brown suede suit I’m looking for doing impressions of Donald Sutherland in Animal house.

Check out my page http://uk.movember.com/mospace/6154809 to see how I’m progressing.
