THEMONKEYCANNON family

Dad grows a world-class beard and provides inspiration.  Mom carefully handcrafts beards for all.  The kids embark on early careers as cutting-edge beard fashion models.  What’s not to love?

The story of this ultra-cool family will be appearing soon on beards.org.  Meanwhile, for those of  you who want a beard and can’t grow one: buy one! …or more!  Click on either photo to go to “The Monkey Cannon’s” online store and shop away!

all about beards' 15th anniversary

On January 17th, 1996, all about beards made its humble debut on the worldwide web.  The little web site had embarked on its mission of promoting beards around the globe.  Today, all about beards is growing stronger all the time and remains the world’s longest-running beard web site.  On all about beards’ fifteenth anniversary, I’d like to thank all of the site’s friends, contributors, supporters, cheerleaders, and of course, beard growers for making all about beards such a success.  Keep growing.

fifteen million!

beards.org hits fifteen million gallery views!

We are starting off the new year with a great milestone.  The beards.org gallery views counter just hit fifteen million!  The ceremonial fifteenth millionth photo was that of Josef of Germany.  The counter rolled over to fifteen million at 9:28 PM Pacific Standard Time on January 2nd, 2011.  We hit fourteen million back on October 11th, 2010.

Josef was one of the first to show off his beard in our beards of the world gallery.  If you haven’t already, please join him in the gallery by submitting your entry today!  To view Josef’s photo, click on the image above.

Thanks for your interest in “all about beards”!
