You have just two more days to punch prostate cancer in the throat. Movember ends this Monday. The Art of Manliness team has raised $6,400 so far. If you haven’t already, please consider donating a few dollars to The Art of Manliness Team . You can also help support Movember by buying our Man’s Guide to the Holiday’s ebook . Half the proceeds will go to Movember.
Congratulations to Dave Hardy for winning the Mountain and Sackett Tie Giveaway . If you entered the contest, you should have received an email from me with a discount code for 20% off any purchase of Mountain and Sackett ties  (with the exception of the Autism Speaks collection as 60% of the sales of those ties goes to charity). Get a nice tie for the holiday parties you’ll be attending or get one to place under the tree this Christmas.
In addition to the Saddleback giveaway we’ve got running for the next week, we’ve got two more giveaways planned before Christmas. So keep checking back for more chances to win manly prizes.
If you haven’t already, be sure to enter our mammoth Saddleback giveaway  that’s running until December 7. We’re giving away 3 uber-manly Saddleback prizes and offering multiple ways to win:
Be sure to carefully review the giveaway post  for details on how to enter. Note: While all you have to do to win the second and third prizes is leave a comment on the giveaway post, you have to leave a comment about something classic and/or timeless! So, “I really want to win!” won’t cut it. I’ve been deleting such comments and individually notifying the posters, but that was becoming an onerous task. So now I’m leaving them be, but rest assured if I draw your name, and your comment is, “Saddleback bags are the coolest!” I will be drawing another name (although you’re right, they are assuredly the coolest).
If you’re in the Oklahoma City area, stop by the Quail Springs Barnes and Noble  on Saturday, December 5, between 2-4 PM. Kate and I will be signing our new book. I’d love to meet you and shake your hand.
Feature of the Week: Ray  wrote an excellent blog post  about watching Fiddler on the Roof with his sons and the lesson it taught him about the need to keep tradition alive while also being willing to embrace change.
Library Goon  posed the question: “If you could fight anyone (living or dead) who would you fight and why ?” Some very entertaining responses.
Reg  wrote a post about how to mix the pattern of your ties with the pattern of your shirts . Got another style question? Reg is graciously willing to help .
KidKash202 posed the question: “Does it bother women when men have fellowship with each other?” 
Living with Children . Parenting guru and columnist John Rosemond muses on why men are having trouble growing up and the role that fathers play in this problem. (Hat tip to Jason Y.)

Emasculating Truth  Testosterone levels in American men have declined 17% since 1987. The stuff that makes a man a man is disappearing before our eyes! An Emasculating Truth is a documentary that’s coming out soon and investigates the causes of this crisis of masculinity. Check out the trailer. Looks like a really fun but thoughtful flick.
