“I have had a beard for 8 years, and have stopped trimming the beard part in September 2012.
“A while ago now decided that I would also stop trimming the ‘stache as well, though I've not found that very easy.
“I don't think I would ever go back to my pre-beard state as I look at photos of me without it, and I don't like them. It is more natural to have a beard.
“I have various interests including amateur radio, showing guinea pigs, and boats.”
