Hello TRH and welcome to Escouts, I am not from NI but hey, so what. Sadly, no you can't have your chalk and board back unless you wear gloves and dust mask! From other posts, you have been Scouting for a long time and must have seen many changes over the years!

Been a leader just over twenty years.
Things have changed. Some good, some bad.
Whoever came up with the idea for explorer scouts should be taken outside and beaten with a wet rolled up newspaper.
The whole traning module system, please I am only a simple man with simple thoughts, my brian hurts.
Child protection minefield. Many of my (single) peers seem to think the the whole issue is getting out of hand, but as a parent I know different!!.
The basic core activities are a flexible to-day as they were then.

Whoever coined the phrase "out" in Scouting got it 100% right. Thats when the little darlings are at their happiest. Then and now.

THis is a sad state of affairs, there must be more of you NI Scouts out their, come and join in, please (i know you are out there Gavan) but is there anybody else. There must be, has to be, am I on my own, or do I just content myself with my English, Scottish, Welsh and International chums and the voices in my head.

Back garden flodded, I was out in the troential rain opening up man hole covers to get the water to drain away, fortunately that worked. I had to build a "dam" around my boiler house to keep the water out. My house is on the top of a hill by the way. Lovely river running down the street though

Glad you aren't one of the worst affected.
My family are in Taughmonagh, is that near you?
(apologies for bad typing, got a 3 week old asleep opn me and i am truing to type one handedly)

Raksha

is this 3 week old a waif and stray you are looking after Liz? or just a visitor?

Liz72

its the latest foster baby!
we have had her since she was discharged from hospital 2 weeks ago, and she seems to be very comfortable sleeping on me this evening!

Raksha
20-08-2008, 09:11 PM
ahh bless. all the pink comes out of the cupboard again! A friend of ours has a baby girl who hates lying on her back (which causes great distress to the Health Visitor) but who will compromise (at the great age of 10 weeks) by lying on her side to go to bed!
I hope that your foster baby finds a great family soon.

TRH
20-08-2008, 10:18 PM
enough of this girlies, bah humbug !!, the next thing will be puppy dogs and ponies

Liz ,Taughmonagh is quite close to me, about 5 minutes in the car, and I don.t think they were too badly affected

one of our local camp site wardens has an Irish Wolf Hound, which doubles up as a small pony.

Welcome to Escouts

We will have to come up with a new title for you as you seem to be better at keeping track of all these new members from Northern Ireland.

Maybe see you there. I don't have a troop camping that weekend as we have most of our leaders going on to the Cub weekend at Bushmills (say helo to the 81st if you see them there)

I might just have to make the effort to get to Crawfordsburn on the Saturday to meet you especially.

A big thank you to you Wayne for taking the time to come and visit us on the Weekend. It was a pleasure to meet you. Even though you did chicken out on the food tasting (can't really blame you).

Anyway thanks again and i hope you had a good time at Bushmills on Sunday.
