Just writing to let you know that THE BEARDED will be going on a hiatus for a short while. you may have noticed that posts have been rare recently and that is due to the fact that I am up by 3 for a 4am start at work. At this present time I dont have the time or the energy to devote to making this what should be. please dont leave as i have every intention of restoring this blog to its former glory. Thank you for your patience your encouragement and your love of beards.
