Gizmodo writer: Boy Scouts made me the man I am today
Blog     22 Jul 2014 | 6:00 am
It’s one thing when I tell you how becoming an Eagle Scout changed my life. After all, I work for the Boy Scouts of America. It’s another thing when a writer for one of the top tech blogs says it. That happened last week when Eagle Scout Wes Siler published a piece for Gizmodo’s Indefinitely Wild blog called “Boy Scouts Made Me The Man I Am Today, Here’s How.” Gizmodo, for the few who don’t know, is a technology blog that ranks No. 168 of all websites in the U.S. for traffic. That puts it above the websites for People magazine, NPR and Macy’s (plus about a gazillion others). Siler, turned sideways...

The Art of Story-Telling
blog     21 Jul 2014 | 4:08 pm
Once Upon a Campfire One of the first Scout camping trips that sticks out in mind was not noteworthy because of where we went or what we did. As a matter of fact, I can’t even remember where it was. What sticks out in my head was what took place around the campfire one night. We were all sitting around (kind of bored) when someone suggested a story. The problem was that no one had brought along any books with them. The idea was almost dropped when one of the older Scouts spoke up and said that he could tell a story...

Deodorant Review
blog     21 Jul 2014 | 2:39 pm
Deodorant isn’t something I think about a lot. I use it. And I notice when other people don’t. When I’m hiking or camping, I might pack a stick so I don’t offend my loved ones. But I’d never bothered reading the labels. So I’d never considered whether the ingredients were natural or not. I just assumed if I wasn’t grossing people out by the end of the day, my money was well-spent. In the last few weeks I sampled three different underarm deodorants to see if one was better than another. And to make sure each was thoroughly tested, I applied them...

Meet Milly: One of the Oldest Living Girl Scouts in the Nationby Girl Scouts of Middle TennesseeBorn in 1909, Mildred (Milly) Lawson Ellis has been alive longer than Girl Scouts has been around.
