Well, I am officially into the 2nd full day of the Jamboree and have developed somewhat of a routine. The days start at 6:10 each day. There is the short trip to the heated swimming pool to do a few laps. The alarm on the phone lets me know that it’s 6:45am and time […]
I spent most of my day today taking images of military personnel — mostly Army, for that’s who’s paying my bill for being here — interacting and working with Scouting personnel. I will put them all onto a CD and provide them to Michele, the person tasked with gathering up those images for the […]
Three words: WHEW!! The temperture was in the high 90s with a “feels like” temp of 109. As I drove into northern VA, my van’s “outdoor temp gauge” said “106. I think this is the highest temp I’ve ever seen in this van!! No Photoshopping here, buddies and buddettes!! That’s the temp outside my […]
(Okay…I’m several days behind on my Jamboree-related blog/notes…I will catch up!! *smiling*) This note has been written four times now and every time something happens to where I lose the note before it gets posted. I spent Saturday morning swimming and then going to Golden Corral to eat before driving up to Washington DC. […]
People always ask me “why do you GO to the Jamboree…isn’t that something for the kids? You’re a LONG WAY from being a kid?? What am I or we missing here??” After I smile at them, I start in telling them that the Jamboree is that ONE EVENT which brings volunteers and professionals I’ve […]
Hi Leif!! You posted and asked me: I have a question: after attaining rank of Eagle Scout: what is the protocol for dress a couple of years after I earned Eagle rank. I need to know how to dress for a Eagle Court of Honor for a younger scout just attaining his Eagle rank. […]
(I am using the laptop with the messed-up space bar key. Somewords will be together…sorry…) As I told Edith Little, all roads leading to my Dad’s home come through Bluegrass, Iowa… Likewise, all roads leading to Virginia flow through West Virginia. I left my Dad’s home early on Tuesday morning. My goal was to […]
I heard about Posterous from a BBC World News television show called “Click”. It is a great technology and computing program and I enjoy watching it several times each week to see how my personal computing can be better! Here’s one of those results.

About Mike Walton
"There's no such thing as strong coffee...only weak people..."
About Me:Take your standard Oliver North. Add strong parts of Bill Cosby and Sir Robert Baden-Powell (the founder of Scouting). Throw in Johny Bravo without the "hurhhs!" and his pecks. Add a strong dose of parenting, the sexuality of a latin lover, and Mona Lisa's smile. And a 40 year old's body frame. That's me basically *grinning*
