HAIRCUT MACHINE

A Guide wearing a large wig enters a hairdresser and asks for a haircut.

The hairdresses asks her to pop her head into the haircut machine.(A large box)

The Guide puts her head in the haircut machine and there is much yelling and shouting, accompanied by sounds of machinery.

The GTuide switches her wig for a bathibg cap.

She removes her head from the machine and runs wildly offstage.

Song of Joy

Come sing a song of joy for peace shall come my brothers.

Sing,sing a song of joy for men shall love each other

That day will dawn just as sure as hearts that are pure are hearts set free

No man must stand alone with hand held out before him,

Reach out and take them in yours with love that endures for evermore.

Then sing a song of joy for love and understanding.

Come sing a song of Christ – of freedom tell the story

Sing,sing a song of joy – for Jesus in His glory.

One mighty voice that will bring a song that will ring for evermore

Then sing a song- of Him of love and understanding.

SWEDISH FIRE SONG

Chorus;

Burn clear against the sky,

your song is always new

So sing with us and light our way,

Until the fire burns through.

Light up the fire and join the ring,

Let the music echo,

Cheerful hearts are calling

Where the flames leaps strong and high

Revealing all around us,

fire and song remind us

How our promise binds.

Holding us in one

Chorus;

Burn clear against the sky,

Your song is always new

So sing with us and light our way,

Until the fire burns through.

Mars Bars and Cream mix

Have hand a tray of cut fruit or simple plain biscuits.

In a pan over a low heat melt 2 large mars bars and approximately 150 mls to 200 mls of cream.  [The less cream the thicker the mix is the next morning  should there be any mix left!!!!] Keep stirring over a low heat or the chocolate burns and the caramel goes weird and tastes funny.  The last part of the mars bar to melt is the nugart.  This is the really mice piece so it should be shared evenly…. and made to melt down, being stirred into the cream base, too.

Take of heat and begin dipping the fruit or biscuits in the mix.  NOTE:             No double dipping or all the mix is thrown out.

I remember when we used to go camping and we would melt mars bars and cream over the fire and then dip granny smith apples in it….. yummy!!!!!!!! I stil crave that some days. lol

This message is from Brooke.  Yes those Mars Bars and cream dipping days were good.  I’ll see if this time I can get photos of the mix… before it is all eaten. May be we can practice this one before hand!

Drought proofing the area around you

Soil profile 236x288 38.76 KB
Image via Wikipedia

Not only have we tried these garden tips on our own garden areas but we have asked around of the older residence of this land. The tips that we have used have definitely  helped in the care and maintenance of the outside areas the Hazelwood and Churchill Guide District are responsible for  making the areas look better while withstand the heat of summer and the frost of winter. Now we are adding to the list as we discover and use more suggestions.

Mainly the concentration has been on the  ‘How to help your garden withstand dry spells’ as the area has been experiencing drought.  When there is rain the area tends to get wet and tries to revert back to the swamp like land it used to be.

  • Plant a tree to shade the garden; this stops soil from drying out.
  • Plant a windbreak.
  • Use water storage crystals.
  • Use a soil wetter.
  • Never leave the soil bare – always mulch to prevent weeds as they use valuable water.
  • Plant a ground cover to protect the soil.
  • Plant and water during the coolest part of the day – early morning or evening.
  • Select drought-tolerant species native to the area.
  • Reduce lawn area with the planting of more shrubs along boarder areas.
  • Mow less frequently. The longer the grass, the slower it will dry out.
  • Place lawn clippings over the garden area as a decomosting mulch.  Cover with tan bark.
  • Let your lawn brown over summer. A brown lawn will almost always recover with the first decent rain. Feed your lawn after rain.
  • Avoid having grass compete for nutrients and water around the trunks of trees and shrubs.
  • Mulch after rain to maximise water retention and inhibit weed growth.
  • Collect fallen leaves to use as mulch..
  • Top up your mulch at least once a year.
  • Leave lawn clippings on the lawn after mowing; this puts nutrients back into the lawn. It won’t promote thatch, as thatch is the build-up of stems, not clippings.
  • Recycle as much as possible.
  • Training Guides to be eco-friendly with their diversity is an ongoing objective.

There are things that we would like to obtain but these are currently on a wish list while we do not have the access any of the  finances needed. Also limitations are placed upon us with lease requirements.

Manners and mannerisms

The not having or having different manners and etiquette habits causes confusion in any meeting and eating place.  This is not to say that any one method is better than the next.  What follows are the norms that are taught through the Hazelwood and Churchill Guide District.  That was everyone will come to understand what is to be expected and begin to adapt to those standards expected when at meetings, in public or representing the District of Region to International events. Also when everyone in the District has the same way of doing some things [traditions] then moving from one unit to another, or from the Youth into the Gipp’s Guides, even as a parent into the District Team or Leadership barriers of being unsure of what to do in a given situation are easily forged.

With this in mind let me share with you some of the things we do.

As a Hostess

  • Meet and great the Guests and visitors.
  • Ask the visitors to sign the guest book/ visitors book [ names needed for a variety of reasons – emergency assembles and re-invitations to other events being two].  Note all there sign in and out for Occupational Health and Safety reasons.
  • Where possible have a bit of information on the Guests  / Visitors background interests, work, service. As a small question with reguard to easing them into a welcoming group environment.
  • Do not pri or be nosy.
  • Listen, ask a small question, be patient with other person when they are answering you query.
  • Introduce one person to another with similar interests. Wait there for a small space of time and may be offer a conversation starter… [Name of person 1] ‘how are the lettuces growing this year’.  Person 2 who grows rabbits may be very interested in persons 1 lettuces but is it not better to introduce lettuce growing conversation to another lettuce grower? NOTE Person 1 raising rabbits may not be happy talking to [person 2 whose dog or ferret eats rabbits!  If this is the case start their conversation of with how well the roses smell this year.
  • It is considered bad form to have a guest inindated with people
  • Stear away from closed subjects i.e. wanting to know personal things about what ever.
  • When your guest is plesently conversing with another person move onto another guest or person who is not in conversation.
  • The Hostesses role is welcome, greet and keep the conversations going.  So the Hostess will be on the look out for people standing back and not for some reason participating.  There may be a very good reason for non participation.  The reason may be as simple as needing to know where the bathroom / toilet is or they have a spider phobia and theres a spider on the wall.
  • After the event or when the guest must leave the Hostess is there at the door thanking the Guest / visitors for coming.  Gently reminding them that the next time we meet they are welcome to come again to.
  • Before the week is out after the activity /event the Hostess has made sure that special Guests have been posted a personal  thank you letter.
  • All sub-committee members and general visitors receive a acknowledgement of their attendance and help.

Meeting and Greeting:

  • We use the Left Hand of Friendship for shaking hands with people.  The Left Handshake is common the World over for people who are currently or have been in either the Boy Scout or the W.A.G.G.G.S. [World Organisation of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts] Organisations .
  • We offer a smile to the recipient of our greeting.
  • In most of Australia people glance into the other persons eyes upon greeting and communicating with them.  This shows trust and respect.  Looking too long though is considered intrusive while  looking away is taken as bad manners.

Circular Discussions

  • When in the circle of conversation [ Brownie Guides called this the Pow Wow circle] conversation flows to the Left.
  • Unless other wise indicated by the Leader of the conversation everyone ways for the speaking turn. Thus, upthrust hands waving urgently in the air and pained expressions on the face tend to be ignored [toilet needs exempt].
  • If there is nothing you want to say… or you cannot immediately remember what is was, you are given time [five counts by the Leader] to sort thoughts and begin to voice your suggestion or opinion.
  • The wasting of time and other mucking around that draws attention to one person [herself] is counted out  and everyone moves onto what the next Guide has to express.
  • Once the circle of conversational input is complete the it is up to the Leader to either left the conversation go around again or ask individuals in a random order.
  • Random order lefts the Guides have only one more say on the topic.

At the Table

  • The Leader then sums up the topic of conversation for all the Guides to hear.
  • When preparing to eat the food is placed on the table with the left hand.
  • Grace is ‘said’ before the food is touched.
  • Grace may be said/ sung / acted for all by the Leader or the Leader may allocate someone else the responsiblity.
  • The Grace said will not offend anyone of other cultures who is sitting at the table.
  • Should you not want to participate in the Grace you may observe silently, or to bow one’s head.
  • No one begins eating until the Leader in Charge  / hostess if away from meeting  is seated and has taken the first bite.
  • Items on the table get passed to the left which is why there is more than one butter dish, jug of water,salt and pepper or tomato sauce container.
  • At the table empty plates / cups/cutlery  are gathers up from a Guides right side.
  • When sitting arrangement have people sitting on the ground / floor then when the Guide is  finished with the plates the plates / cup / cutlery is placed from our right around our back and onto the Ground.  This allows for ease of removal by the meal waitresses.
