      Anna, I would like to apologize for our behavior.

      KDD, you should be more Scout-like.

      Anna William is the BSA's national director of Wood Badge, and she deserves our respect.

      Zen Bedrooms and Bathtub Residue are previews from the new Wood Badge based on Life Skills Merit Badge. National has replaced office management theory with practical "program neutral" skills that are equally useful to both Patrol Leaders and Den Mothers.

      When I was approached to be one of the guides for the first new course, I took the plunge. Basically we had to run the course while learning it. Maybe because we were the first, we had to put more into really understanding the new directions and ideas. And being a guide truly strengthened me personally. Today's course has evolved into a real "home management" school of sorts; and if the participants follow up and stay with it, they will grow considerably.

      We have a few that seem to just not get it, that in the end it is for the kids, not the leaders. Much of our reactions to these things are reflected by our general view of our world. It seems pretty obvious to me that we have a few here that no matter what is said or proven within almost 100% accuracy, it will still be a bad thing, or is misdirected to ruin the program. And they worry me if they bring that really negative vibe to the youth.

        All I can say is that I'm very thankful I wasn't drinking something when I read Kudu's post. I nearly fell out of my chair laughing.

        Pack, what up with the disappearing posts? Kudu came back and my post for him is gone. "Can't wait for Kudu's response to this".

      Ah, I guess I just did not really get the connection because of the different threads; and yes, my sarcasm indicator does not always work as well as it could or should. But, I guess if my words, with slight modification, are good enough for Kudu to share here, I should consider it a compliment and not a swipe at me. Whatever, as the young people like to say when they really have nothing better to add. Later.

        OK, I checked the IP address and this address is all over the place as a 'comment spammer'. The host is a company based in California and Thailand. I guess the message was translated automatically from Thai. H'mm makes me hungry for some Thai food (but not Spam). Later.

        Do they have Wood Badge in Thailand?

          Must be related to that well known society commentator, Anna Notherting, who got her reporters training from the editorializing writer, Stella Lottaschist.
