1- The reason that you stay away from Ham Band Frequency edges are:

2- Notice when you look at the BSA Requirements up through First Class; Every skill/requirement is a lifelong skill that you can use. The MB Program is to introduce you to additional facets of life. Get Prepared.

A- Why did the hog have an upset tummy?
B- It pigged out at dinner.

3- Learn how to hand wash the dishes. Like you have to do on a camping trip.

3B- Plan a week’s worth of menus and make a shopping list with a budget. Remember the spices. – Figure out sales & use of coupons that may make your menus cheaper &/or more nutritious. – What are your family’s “comfort” foods? (beef stew tops my list with cornbread & molasses) – Try using the slow cooker/crockpot. – Try baking something. Learn the difference between Baking & Broiling while using the oven.

C- What plays music with your hair?
D- A head-band.

4- Do you have a career in mind? Start asking questions: – What kind of education do I need to get there? – In particular, what kind of coursework do I need to better prepare myself to get that job? – What will help me advance in that career? (more education, more skills, better leadership capability, volunteer/community service work…..) – Who can mentor me? – Can I intern there or work part-time during summer vacations or after school? – What ancillary industries or skills will help me in my job? – What is the history of that industry?

     It is totally OK to change your mind about your career goals.

5- A quote from author Jim Rohn: “Life is a unique combination of “want to” and “how-to,” We need to give equal attention to both.”

6- Look to the west just after sunset. Find the Pleiades star cluster – aka the Seven Sisters. It looks like an itty bitty version of the Big Dipper.

Relearning my Abacus,

E- What happens when you photograph the Invisible Man
F- Nothing shows.
