"I wish to thank everyone for allowing me to be part of your sons' scouting careers. These past 7 years have been quite enjoyable for me in many ways. I have enjoyed the adventures and the camaraderie with the boys and with the adult leadership. I wish to extend a special "THANKS" to all of the Assistants that helped me out these past 7 years. With their help, we made...

Dear Cousin,


Spring can come in earnest now that it has snowed on the sarvis (serviceberry) tree in bloom. It is an old country saying that it will always snow on the sarvis bloom, a prediction that was repeated every spring by Uncle Clarence Brown. Our good friend Gerald Braley inherited his position as country weather prophet until he too passed away. No one has rose up to fill their shoes, as this younger generation relies on radio and TV to predict the weather. I like the old-time...

Spring is a beautiful season, the resurrection of Jesus being the most glorious and beautiful. All creation is coming to life anew. It is time to till up our spiritual gardens and plant our prayers in the rich soil of our Savior's unconditional love and watch the miracles grow; to unite with friends and family for a cook-out and to tell stories around the camp fire. And as we see the smoke on the wind, may we know that The Creator sends us all blessings of Love and Light.

Love is "we" not I.
Love is mutual respect.
Love is "I am here for you".
Love is trust in each other.
Love is a lifetime of commitment.
Love is more than 50/50,
but never 100% me.
Love is for richer or poorer,
In sickness and in health.
Love is friendship, not just sex.
Love is consideration and kindness.
Love is life, and life is love.
From your heart to his/her heart,
Love is "us".

Inside was a CD for software I needed to use it, and the iPod. I was like a kid getting a new toy for Christmas. After checking out the iPod I plugged it into...
