I hope someone or two can help this Scout Leader (Scouter)
from the United Kingdom. Although I don't know Steve personally, I

grand plan and I certainly hope the great virtual campfire and
roundtable-that-never -ends can help his Scouts. =20

Maybe we can consider it partial repayment for that original London
Good Turn that grabbed Mr. Boyce's attention some years back ;-)
