    • It appears that one of the posts about criteria for choosing women who are rich and good cooks and seeing a woman working in a field and saying "that'll do" have been removed.  I don't see those posts on this thread anymore, but they were here, and that's what prompted my replies.
    • Hopefully by summer this outbreak will have run its course.  The council in your area will need to see what the laws say about the issue for non school organizations. 
    • I have seen several women like this that have ended up going to wood badge and came back even worse.  They come back thinking the way the trainers at wood badge function is the way adults in a troop are suppose to function. If you send a great scouter to wood badge, they will come back a even better scouter, I have seen that happen many times. If you send a bad scouter to wood badge, you might create a monster with beads, I have seen that happen as well.      
    • Unvaccinated Students in Rockland County, New York, Told to Stay Home Following Measles Outbreak With declining vaccination rates, it seems summer camps will likely face outbreaks in the near future.  Do camps have procedures in place to deal with them, such as sending unvaccinated personnel home, etc.?  With measles, there is a 90% chance of infection for susceptible people who are exposed.  
    • Yes trying to be positive lately has been hard.  One positive is 2 of the 3 patrols know exactly what they have and don't have. So they won't embarass themselves in front of the Webelos next week. Another positive that my sons pointed out is "we know exactly which tents to get that don't  have any problems."
