Brownies was such fun - I'm sure Mo will love it. Shocking that the Brownie woman hasn't got back to you for so long. Very un-Brownie-like.

Good, Curly needs regular beatings and being sent in the corner with a crust of bread a sip of water for dinner. Isn't that what made us all the well-adjusted contributers to society that we are today?

Do you get travel allowance? Only asking 'cos flights to KL next July are hideously expensive.

Songshards - that's what I thought! She is a disgrace to the name of Brownies.

SMW - Curly is even now sitting in the naughty chair for demanding Readybrek for breakfast, eating 2 bites and then saying that actually what she wants is Shreddies.

Bobs - alas, no travel allowance. I've noticed that it is usually very expensive if you try to book too far ahead. Maybe it will go down, she said optimistically.

Riding lessons

Its really easy only two things to learn

1) get on horse
2) try not to fall off

Car allowance, you get paid for polluting the planet. I am saddened and shocked and i note removed from the top 10

Maybe we should change the get-together for another time of year with cheaper flights?

Flights during the summer can be expensive because it's high season.

I've already booked our flights, so changing dates is a no go.

Ooh Motty, there's a DILF who picks up his kidlet in a Porsche every day after school. I know he's only compensating, but still, yum.

I tried to be a Brownie when I was a girl. We could never find where it was. Funny, for an organisation that's supposed to teach girls organisational skills.

that was the first test - finding the Brownie hut - and you failed. I suppose I am failing the first test for initiative, just by falling down at the hurdle of being unable to solicit a response from the enigmatic / useless Maria Lobo Cronin.

I suppose DILF sounds better than FILF, you naughty old MILF, you.

ok whats a DILF??

Compensating? what would I do with a foot long member?

Brownies, didnt join myself the thought of running around in a brown tunic, and woolen berret was too much for me. Decided that beavers was the place to be. However, again I was misinformed as the place had no female widlife at all.

Did you know that Baden Powells misses started the guides and the brownies was an offshoot bit like scouts. Did you also know that Hong Kong is the only place in the scouting movement that identifies the rank of the people in charge. With the propensity to where uniforms in Hong Kong being much the same as the British male dressing up as a woman, the ability to plaster ones self with badges and other scrambled egg must be a godsend.

The most favoured book for scouts was written by said Mafeking hero and it was entitled scouting for boys. Not very PC is it.

On a similar vain I passed an odious security guard today resplendent in ill fitting blue trousers, belt fastened twice round the waist, crisp off white grey shirt with frayed collar and grease stained beret on head at a jaunty come hither angle. He was a man of some stature because he had more bars on his lapels than lockhart road.

Ho hum

I remember a card in the window of John Grant Hay on Wye.
It said 'Brownie's Uniform for sale. Would suit large Brownie' - I have often wondered about that.
