ten million!

The gallery views counter hit ten million at 7:41 PM PDT on October 25, 2009!  Which was the prize-winning ten-millionth photo?  Well, Dave wins another one:

Dave, ten million!

Click on the photo above to see the larger, gallery version.  One of Dave’s photos was the winner at nine million views, too.  Thanks again, Dave, and all of the visitors to beards.org!

UPDATE:  I should add, of course, sincere thanks to all of the participants in the beards of the world gallery, too!

Farewell, Billy.

Billy Mays unexpectedly passed from this life on June 28, 2009.  Billy was a famous pitch man on television, enthusiastically selling a variety of products.  Through his work on television and personal appearances, Billy Mays became a celebrity.  Just as famous as Billy himself was his dark full beard.  Billy demonstrated to the world that a full-bearded man could appear in advertising and achieve great success.  For that, I say, “Thank you, Billy.”
