Commiserations to the near misses
I’m sure you will all pass the next time around.
Thanks to to Ian Williams for reading for one student and to Charlie and Ian
for running the course and anyone else helping along the way.
I reckon Shaun is looking quite sheepish!
Charlie must have liked the Ram as he is seen feeding him with his pasty.
Whatever you say it is obvious their visitor was the black sheep of its family.
Will a sunday ever be the same again I ask myself?
World Thinking Day on the Air (TDOTA)
will be the 3rd full weekend in February 16 & 17
TDOTA is an opportunity for the members of the Guide Association from the youngest Rainbow to the oldest Trefoil Guild member to talk to other members of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts all over the world via Amateur Radio.
The 22nd February is Thinking Day because it was the birthday of Lord Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Scout and Guide movements, and his wife Olave, who was the first World Chief Guide.
On this day each year members of WAGGGS (World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts)
remember the founders of the movement and take part in various activities to think about their sisters throughout the world.
