The more we get together

The more we get together is a song that was sung in 2005 at a camp fire. very soon after wards as part of the Achieve : Leadership part 2 this song was one of a few taught over a a month at Guides in preparation for a short campfire.

The more we get together, together, together,
The more we get together the happier we’ll be.
For your friends are my friends,
And my friends are your friends,
The more we get together the happier we’ll be.

The more we get together, together, together,
The more we get together the happier we’ll be.
For you know that I know,
And I know that you know,
The more we get together the happier we’ll be.

And another version of make new friends.

A terrific Song with regards to friendship.

Make New Friends Round
(You may want to use one verse per group)
Make new friends but keep the old,
One is silver and the other gold.

A circle’s round, it has no end,
That’s how long I’ll be your friend.

I have a hand, and you have another,
Put them together and we have each other.

Sew good friends wherever you may roam,
You’ll be welcome in my heart and home.

You help me and I’ll help you,
And together we will make it through.

A fire burns bright, it warms the heart,
We’ve been friends right from the very start.

New made friends like new made wine
Grow and mature to the end of the time!

Friends like you are one of a kind,
Very special, but hard to find.

Friends are real and friends are true,
If you love them they will love you too.

Cherish friendship in your breast
New is good, but old is best;

Across the miles, across the sea
Friends forever we will always be.

Make new friends, but keep the old:
Those are silver, these are gold

Friends like you are one of a kind,
Very special but hard to find.

So good friend wherever you may roam,
You’ll be welcome in my heart and home

Attending ‘my’ place of Worship

It is my understanding that :
Guiding recognises that faith and worship is a very important factor in most peoples lives. Faith, belief and Worship enriches peoples lives in so many different ways.
Guiding itself is a non-religious, non-political organisation. This being said guiding supports those members who choose to attend places of worship and to express themselves in a respectful and diligent way that allows for them to respect and live with themselves, their family,community, their environment and the world around them.

And the music flows

Listening to different types of music adds variety to our lives.

Sometimes during the meetings CD’s have been played. The Guides or leaders bring their CD’s, check with the leaders that the CD’s music is appropriate, and the Cd’s are played as back ground music through the meeting.

Over the years there has been played: Guide songs and campfire singing, traditional Australian Aborginal music from different ‘Nations’. Various other traditional music from other countries: New Zealand, Wales, France, Germany, American Indian, and Indian just to name a few.

Even Music from different music trends: The Australian Youth Choir, Abba, ACDC, Whitesnake, Celian Deyon, Jazz, Classical, Rock, Metal (heavy, fairy, light electrical,,) Pop…

Various compilations such as Aussie BBqs, Power Songs, Imprisonment tapes, Childrens Nursery Rhyme Tapes, International freedom CD’s.

The lists just go on.

The Guides and their friends are checked re their knowledge of Occupational Health and Safety in regards to electricity, handing of home appliances, appreciation of noise levels, who running the show and who has over all power with regard to saying turn it off.

Organising meals.

Keeping up to date with these changes means that the guide Leaders are always checking up on what foods we eat and don’t eat when they are helping the Guides organise a menu for a dinner, camp or other activity.

Assessing eating habits.

Things happen all the time as our bodies get older and / or more sensitive. In order for us to constantly keep up, look after our bodies we have to assess, regulate and change our diet regularly.
