Hazelwood and Churchill (Victoria, Australia) local Girl Guide information noticeboard.

What is an apple basic

Sometime people are so familiar with things that they do not know one is the other.  That is a chicken lays an egg, which a shop then sells. That egg white comes from the inside of the egg!  Or in this case an apple may be made into apple juice and apple pulp then used in two different recipes.

So the Guides were shown that if they peel several apples, core them, chop them up into pieces (sizes as evenly as possible) then cook these pieces aver a heat sauce with a little water you actually end up with a mixture from which the stained juice is apple juice and the remaining stuff in the strainer is the apple puree.

Cool and use as soon as possible.

But what do you use it for. So over time they have been shown the following: Apple juice, Apple Puree, Salad dressing, Apple pancakes.

Party Lights

During 2009 a shop had a special on. The leaders went out and spent some money on all sorts of lights to use at discos, party’s and other things.

Unfortunately the disco ball was dropped ion the first night the Guides were looking at them.

Now there are cables missing. When we have more money there will be more cables.

The equipment we have and can still use is still fun to have. The District has spare extension cords and socket extensions.

Using the CD player.

There is a CD player where we meet. As long as the Guides organising the music show one of the leaders the C.D’s before the CD player is used then it may be used in different activities.

Even played during the meeting time if they agree.

NOTE: All the CD operators need to have their Occupational Health and Safety checks by Debbie first.

Flag poles have their uses.

There are only three uses for a Flag pole.

The main use for a flag pole is to hold a Flag. More aptly known as “The Colors”. Another use for Flag Poles are to center the ropes that peg the flag pole down. The third use for a Flag Pole is to give the Color Party a Job.

Flag poles are not used as entertainment props, dance poles, spare tent poles, dilly bag lines, prospective spare kindling even or anything else other than a Flag Pole. Boaring! but true. Boils down to having respect for the “Colors” and what and who those the “Colors” represent.
