I don't grow beards. I wish I could, but I can't. Don't have enough facial hair...

Bill Richardson's was the hit of the Democratic primary season. That was a beard.

Then I went on vacation and our condo had a pipe burst and viola - no running water!
Shaving in Iraq with bottled water is one of the few things I really don't miss -- so I decided to let it go for a few days... 
The water is back on, but the beard seems to have stayed. 
Get a good look - it's a very rare occurence!
