CBC meteorologist Ryan Snoddon is trying to do the right thing. He's trying to grow a moustache for Movember - an event in support of men's health, specifically prostate cancer.
Ryan's *ahem* attempt to grow a 'stache' has become quite entertaining. The shadow on his lip has been referred to a ' low-pressure system'. He's been compared to Clark Gable. He's even endured Jonathan Crowe making that slashing 'Zorro' sound. Jonathan likes to do that a lot.
Many of you have joined in on the fun on Ryan's Facebook page.
We'll be updating this page frequently, so you can follow Ryan's progress (or lack thereof).
This should actually be called: The Case of the Missing Flags. As you can see, we're down one flag. This is better than a few days ago when we were down all four. Someone keeps pinching the flags. Which are expensive. Now, there are clues. The CBC has surveillance cameras in that area, so flagnappers be warned.
An annual chance to stock up on Christmas presents happened this weekend, when
the Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador held its Christmas craft fair at
the Arts and Culture Centre in St. John's.
Here is another set of photos from the War Memorial. This set was taken by Heather Barrett, who was producing our radio coverage of the service.

No injuries. A man told Cecil Haire he was driving to work when he saw smoke coming from the area
around the dash and the front windshield. He pulled in to the parking lot
and got out. That's when the fire really got going.
seen always has a good time at the International Food and Craft Fair in St. John's. We eat a of of food - this time it was from Liberia, get faces painted and watch dancing - this time from a group called Bollywood Jig.
On election day, Premier Kathy Dunderdale dropped the news that Newfoundland & Labrador's legislature wouldn't be opening until the spring. So that means with the weather closing in, the place is going to need to be winterized. It's a big project winterizing the house of assembly, but the CBC's Adam Walsh went to the experts - cabin owners in Mahers and Brigus Junction - for some helpful tips.
Here are some things the Dunderdale government might consider based on cabin-winterizing advice received from Barry Penny, Bob Nightingale, William Kearney and Bruce White, and other information Adam Walsh found:
- Seal it up as well as you can. If there's anything to be caulked, caulk it.
- Put anti-freeze in the toilets.
- Clear away anything that could be a mess for any vermin that may get in, squirrels and the whatnot.
- Drain down most of the system, even if you do leave the heat on. Because if you do have a power failure and the power is off for a couple of days it's going to freeze and a lot of damage could occur
- Shovel off the roof once during the winter.
- Board up the windows to dissuade burglars.
Every year since we started seen, we have gone out on Halloween to shoot all the wonderful decorations that people create. This year, the weather was absolutely foul, but we were not disappointed. Here is some of what we found.
