something you may not have noticied here or any other list you may be a
member of is that any "gathering" of individuals somehow becomes a family,
this list is one of those instances. Yes, we share information here about
scouting and youth, but, we also celebrate the joys and success in
anothers life, we also share in the humbleness of misery, when one of our
own is hurting, for whatever reason. I myself had made GREAT friends all
across this world because of this list. You will find here in this family
ALL kinds of personalities from grumpies to extremely nice types, but, a
family we have become, quite frankly I am quite proud of my sisters and
brothers of the cause.
