The Scout Promise talks about helping other people. When I realised my 92 year old Grandma was feeling a little left out I set about finding a way to help her. Nannan wasn’t left out on purpose it’s just the rest of us were doing things she can’t. That’s when I came up with Paperwait
Hello Blueted Ponders Fans Ok I am getting ahead of myself but I know that Blueted Ponders is the best part of this whole blog. Any Hoo – You may have noticed that there has not been much pondering going on of late, this was due to an incident involving my head and a 3 year old finger. It is a long story, however you will be glad to know that I am on the road to recovery. It was a rather strange incident, we where traveling back from visiting @inchfadmike and @bgpmoss and I was in the back of the car with the little ones. The journey was going ok and I suddenly felt a little drowsy and a weird poking around my head. Having been around children for 36 odd years being prodded and poked is nothing new in the teddy bear game but this was different. This [...]
Well it has come to that time of the week, where sadly the Cilben Collective has decided that our Great Kiff, now Great Ninja Puffin Kiff. Has more than done enough of his training to become our great leader once again. He’s passed everything with flying colours like we knew he would. He can now scale walls using only the power of his mind, he now knows what we’re thinking before we’re even thinking of it. He can now train us all in the law of the Puffin Ninja fighting skills in order to prevent WW3, or wandering gangs of Girl Guides. But most of all he has developed the most important skill of all, opening a tin of tuna with only his mind. As the Cilben Collective takes down it’s TAKEOVER! this week, let’s all say what the best thing is about Scouting. The best thing about Scouting in [...]
As we read this our Ninja Puffin Leader in the making is making fine progress in his training. He has been let lose from his crate and learning to master the new Ninja power and moves. For all those that are reading this, we will be exclusively revealing a sneaky paparazzi shot of our Kiff in training. Please don’t worry he does have his top on in the photo, we’ll will be revealing this here at Jabbering at 1pm today!!!!!! Back to today’s topic though, MOTIVATION. How do you motivate your young members in Scouting. We all know what teenagers can be like, so how do you do it? DO you try to motivate your members every week? Or just for big events? Do you motivate them with actions or words? Do they need motivating? Is there a big difference in the sections, such as Beavers and Scouts? I am [...]
TAKEOVER UPDATE From the many requests we have received we thought we should give an update on the Great Kiff. He has accepted that he will be known as the Great Kiff after his superb Puffin Ninja training by the Great Ninja Puffin. Our Kiff will become wise and wonderous to all people. His first day of training went well, the first day of training was the Day of Pain. In which our Kiff was placed in a tiny crate with nothing but his mind, where he had to successfully open an emergency tin of tuna with nothing but his new Puffin mind. Early reports say there was much wimpering and crying, but we eventually had success. Meanwhile on the Scouting front, those of you who know the Cilben Collective Master, Cilben. Might know he is a bit of a history buff, after reading the following this morning it got [...]
TAKEOVER! TAKEOVER! TAKEOVER! TAKEOVER! TAKEOVER! TAKEOVER! There is nothing wrong with your computer screen. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling Jabbering. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the time you are reading this, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your computer screen. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to — The Cilben Collective. We have packaged Kiff off to a small island to where he will [...]
As a toy bear of a certain age teeth are something that has baffled me. It has got nothing to do with my age I have never had teeth, come to think of it I am not sure I have a mouth.
