World's Greatest ShaveOur glorious leader Mike (and colleague Ben) are shaving off for the Leukaemia Foundation. In Mike's case that's some 5 years of extensive growth (which takes some serious planning) which may never again be seen in it's current glory. If you want to wave goodby to Mike's follicular assets, or marvel at the stunning transformation, come along.
