did i get your attention....

I got pooped on yesterday by a bird on the way to the Army and Navy Shoe Sale...right on my left boob! GROSS

I had to get someone to check and make sure i didnt get it in my hair. So they say that this is good luck. But really where did this come from...why is a bird pooping on you a good luck sign? I tried to google it, and really i could only find the same questions and no answers.

Then i started to look for urban legends about bird poop and ran across this one that made me laugh out loud!


Dihydrogen monoxide is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and kills uncounted thousands of people every year. Most of these deaths are caused by accidental inhalation of DHMO, but the dangers of dihydrogen monoxide do not end there.

Prolonged exposure to its solid form causes severe tissue damage. Symptoms of DHMO ingestion can include excessive sweating and urination, and possibly a bloated feeling, nausea, vomiting and body electrolyte imbalance.…


As i worked into the wee hours on a camp skills day for my brownies (and im not even on the planning committee!!) and contemplate my upcoming change to the Vancouver Area Program Advisor for GG of C, i started thinking about the other people in my life who currently volunteer and have done excellent volunteer work both here and in other countries.

I am proud to say that I am a part of such and amazing community and have friends who love people, they dont know, enough to want to help in whatever way they can.

I challenge you to get out and volunteer...if not on a long term basis, then on a short term mission or even a vounteer day at a soup kitchen. Not only do you provide help to the other volunteers, but you help provide services for people who can not afford. Your generosity and love makes a bigger difference than you can even imagine!

There are volunteer positions available for every talent imaginable, don't go out and do something for the sake of doing it, pick something you woul…
