Goodbye hair

Posted by Bruno Afonso on 26/02/2009

baldman372readyAre you spending hours in front of the mirror pitying yourself? Is it starting to take you less and less time to count all your hair threads? Do you feel like you are losing your charm due to the loss of the hairstyle that made you famous some years ago? Are you in denial and wondering why the world has brought such an injustice over you?

Well, you can stop the drama now. No, I am not going to offer a miracle cure for baldness. But I am going to provide you with a link where you can get some scientific information on hair loss, its causes, the different kinds of hair loss and the various treatments available.

It is worth the read, not only to clear some of the myths we usually hear about hair loss, but also to help us understand what’s behind this “monster” that scares a great number of men. It may even give you a different point of view on the subject and leave you with the feeling that hair loss doesn’t necessarily mean lack of charm, sex appeal, handsomeness, or personality.

Take a look at it here.

A Husband’s Guide to Lovemaking

Posted by Bruno Afonso on 20/02/2009

sexsecretshusbandsguidetolovemakingcoverYes, I know! When it comes to in-bed activities we are all the best there is and the best there will ever be. We all have that adult movie star stamina and endurance (and we can also perform in that weird position where you put one leg on one side of her, and the other leg goes…). Oh, and we always get them exhausted, right? Right!

Nonetheless, I believe this book may come in handy for some of us (very, very, very, very few, I’m sure) who think they can still improve something in their mating skills.

I’m guessing the ladies will all be thankful if we [ALL] read this interesting book. (after all, they’re the ones who keep saying we always miss “the point” of it; maybe we should give them the benefit of the doubt).

Get it from here, and enjoy the results ;o). Let me know if the missus found it worth the read.

Illustrations to Colour – Oceans & Dinosaurs

Posted by Bruno Afonso on 20/02/2009

oceanscoloring1ageofdinosaurscoloringEver wondered how to keep your kids busy during the holidays?

Well, here’s a suggestion that may help discover (or not =P) the artist in your child. Two neat books featuring lots and lots of images your youngsters can colour as they please. One of the books is related to oceans and its wildlife, and the other depicts scenes with dinosaurs.

I know it’s not exactly the latest Playstation model, but sometimes the simpler things can be huge fun (I mean, we all liked dinosaurs at some point in our childhood. Kids nowadays like dinosaurs too, right? They do… right?).

You can get the Oceans colouring book here.

Posted by Bruno Afonso on 20/02/2009

tiesIt is commonly accepted that a tie gives a man a very distinct look.

It is also commonly accepted that making a tie knot is one of the biggest challenges most men will face during their lives.

I found this nice video on the Internet that teaches us how to properly make 5 different tie knots:
– the Four in Hand;
– the Windsor;
– the Half Windsor;
– the Shelby;
– the Bow Tie.

You can download it here and start practicing in front of your mirrors ;o)
