    • 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.

    • 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.
