Did you have a special "teddy" in your life? Do you know how they came to be called Teddy bears? Awhile back I was watching a kids movie called "First Dog" and in that movie is a scene that tells the following "Teddy bear" story - but with slight errors. What follows is based on my research and I believe to be historically correct: Just over one hundred years ago President Roosevelt was on a...[More]

Recently a friend was asking me about my progress toward becoming a nomad and living on the road full time. As many of you know this has been a dream of mine for many, many years and I have been working toward the dream for an equal amount of time. The answer is, simply, that I am making steady progress and have all the "hows" worked out. The same problem that has been vexing me...[More]

TMI (“too much information”) is a common refrain on sites like Facebook where people are all too willing to share, well, too much information about their personal lives. But TMI can be a problem when you’re planning an Eagle court of honor – or, more precisely – when you’re working on the event’s printed program.Assuming you’re using standard program covers, which are 8½" x 11" and fold in half, there’s only so much space...[More]

I am so excited to be attending the 2012 Rock the Mall! This will be a history-making, momentus occasion – one my daughter and I will share forever. Are you coming?? Since the movement was founded in 1912, Girl Scouts have used songs to celebrate life, to bridge cultural boundaries and to communicate their commitment to the principles that guide the movement. On June 9, 2012, girls from across the country will gather on the...[More]

While activities carried out in accordance with BSA policies are generally quite safe, accidents can occur. That’s why the BSA offers liability coverage to registered volunteers and chartered organizations. That’s also why it requires liability coverage for cars, trucks, and vans used in Scouting activities.But how much coverage is required for vehicles? And is the BSA’s general liability policy primary or secondary coverage? And how do unauthorized activities affect your coverage? If you’re like...[More]

In case you're new to Scouting or you've been living under a rock, I would like to announce Pinewood Derby season is officially upon us. My boys' pack handed out their Derby car kits at the holiday party and the boys have been hard at work building their cars. I never realized how many rules and regulations are in place in regards to this fun little race! Sheesh! My daughter, a Daisy Scout, is considerably...[More]

The biggest story in the sports world this fall was the child sex abuse scandal that has rocked Penn State athletics. If you’re like me, you’re probably sick of reading the sordid details of this scandal and the breathless condemnations and defenses of the various people involved. So why bring up Penn State in a Scouting context? Because we in Scouting can use this tragedy as a chance to revisit our commitment to youth protection...[More]

At it's beginning, December brings with it the holiday season. Weather you celebrate Christmas, Chanukah, Yule, Kwanza or another observance, this time of year typically is bedecked with lights, holly, warm fires and (if you live near me) lots of snow. In my home, we are gearing up for another kind of season – Girl Scout cookie season! My little girl is in her first year of Daisies (the first level of GS, ages 5-7))...[More]
