Worth a look!
A potted history of scouting including many everyday ex cubs & scouts memories such as this...
I baked a lemon meringue pie, all by myself, followed the instructions on the packet, and washed everything up afterwards. Beautifully presented.
Sadly it looked like my mum had baked it for me. Or that's what I told myself when I felt the bitterness of losing to an inferior cake, baked by Akela's son, no artistry, just hundreds and thousands on top. I'm over it now though.

Famous ex-Scouts tell us their memories of Scouting
You may have heard of boomy man mountain Brian Blessed, he is a very famous British actor, ..has climbed everest (a lot) ..You might know him as Boss Nass in "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace," (of the Hawk Men) in the 1980 "Flash Gordon" movie and possibly heard him on a car sat nav or two!
Astronomer, wearer of daft jumpers, actor & dancing with the stars contestant 2012-2013, ..(excuse my ignorance I don't watch much tv).
Celebrity "pundit" & mischevous talk show host on channel 5
enjoys fishing & saying "dib-dib dib" ...Matthew ought to spend a weekend getting back to his cub camping roots & help us lot out, I think he'd be a great ambassador for scouting!
James presents top gear (he's the scruffily dressed one in "loud" shirts, ..he also helped build, & stay in a full size house made of lego! If you are allowed why not watch James May's toy stories online, where he makes giant scalextric tracks, & proper full size meccano bridges over canals... good fun!
Joe is a famous garden designer & horticulturalist, just like the rest of us he's fine tidying up everyone else's gardens but he's too tired to bother with his own at week-ends! ..Doh!
