Sue Sensenbaugh-Padgett, (suellen5 #3992) has received a certificate of achievement in Make It Easy for earning a beginner level Carp-hen-try badge.

"My home had the fake wallpaper paneling with mauve and blue flowers. I started by using Kilz on the walls to make the paint stick.

I love the look of my none flower walls. The color brightened the room making it look much larger. Also the wall decorations stand out. Now I can't wait to paint the rest of the house. The hardest part of the project was taping the windows and edges.
I always believed I was fairly handy around the house, but "Dare to Repair" taught me a lot. Never knew that ceiling fans changed rotational directions to work differently for Summer and Winter."

Sharon Schrader, (#4109) has received a certificate of achievement in Garden Gate for earning a beginner level The Secret Life of Bees badge.

"I earned my badge by watching the trailer of The Secret Life of Bees and found it very informative. I also read the book by Sue Monk and enjoyed it. I have bee friendly flowers such as sedum, lilac, redbud, sage and marigolds planted in my yard.

By being more aware of bees I have discovered a swarm of bees in a hollow tree just outside of my garden. I will be getting a hive soon."

Sharon Schrader, (#4109) has received a certificate of achievement in Garden Gate for earning an intermediate level The Secret Life of Bees badge.

"I earned my badge by reading the book Bees: Natures Little Wonders. In researching the difference between raw and processed honey, raw is more nutritious and filtered and processed is filtered and heated losing some the vitamins and minerals.

I will be using honey instead of sugar and I found a great dealer at our local farmer's market."

Sharon Schrader, (#4109) has received a certificate of achievement in Make It Easy for earning a beginner level Grease Chicks badge.

"I earned my badge by checking all fluid levels in my Jeep. I am the only one who drives my car I do this on a regular basis, also I fuel up myself. I have kept a journal for the last month on my fuel usage and mileage.

By keeping track of miles and fuel usage I have figured out my Jeep gets about 18 miles to the gallon."

Sarah Houlihan, (Houligan19 #3828) has received a certificate of achievement in Garden Gate for earning an intermediate level Birds badge.

"I built a birdhouse and hung it right outside my front window so that I could watch it to see if there were any birds coming.

For a while, only the robins would land on my birdhouse. They were too big to actually use it though. Finally I noticed a wren building a nest in the birdhouse. It would come by in the morning and go back a forth for quite a while getting the nest going. We actually built birdhouses and painted them as a family project so I have many in my yard full of birds now."

Pamela Lobaugh, (Sugar Girl #4235) has received a certificate of achievement in Garden Gate for earning a beginner level The Secret Life of Bees badge.

"I had read the Secret Life of Bees over the winter and just watched the vanishing bees. I had planed to get a top-bar hive this spring, but decided to wait until next year, as I got chickens this spring. I have planted bee friendly flowers all around my place.

If I do get a hive. It will be a top bar as it is much better for the Bees."

Pamela Lobaugh, (Sugar Girl #4235) has received a certificate of achievement in Each Other for earning a beginner level Know Your Roots badge.

"Sat down with my 88 year old mother and asked her to refresh some of the stories my grandmother told, about her side of the family making the Mormon trek across the plains to Utah after they were driven out of Missouri and their home taken. She reminded me that my great, great grandfather had died on the journey and that my GG grandmother and the children had finished the journey on their own with many hardships before reaching the safety of the Salt Lake Valley.

It was nice to try to rekindle the old memories my mother had as a child."

Pamela Lobaugh, (Sugar Girl #4235) has received a certificate of achievement in Make It Easy for earning a beginner level In the Garden badge.

"I found this long piece of concrete reinforcing grid and wired it to a metal building I hate the looks of, plated a trumpet vine at the base so it will cover the shed. In honor of the 4th of July I built a bean teepee out of t-posts and scrap wood and the climbing twine is baling twine.

Doesn't look too hot but once they're covered it will look very nice. Having fun doing all these projects!"

Mary Livengood, (mamalivengood #4128) has received a certificate of achievement in The Secret Life of Bees for earning a beginner level Garden Gate badge.

"First, I watched the trailer for "vanishing bees". Next, I read "The Secret Life of Bees". I planted Bachelor Buttons and Giant Sunflower. I also transplanted some mint from one flower bed to another in the front yard.

I enjoyed the book. My 12 year old daughter read the book as well. We both liked it so much that we decided to have a special girl night and rent the movie. I think what made the book so enjoyable was that it tells a wonderful story of facing and growing through the hardships of life, but also describes many aspects of beekeeping."

Deborah Meyer, (dmeyer #4099) has received a certificate of achievement in Outpost for earning a beginner level Rocks and Minerals badge.

"A mineral is a solid formation that occurs naturally in the earth while a rock is a combination of more than one mineral formations which also occurs naturally.
A mineral has a unique chemical composition and is defined by its crystalline structure and shape while a rock can be composed of several minerals it is classified according to the process of its formation. A rock can also contain organic remains apart from regular mineral formations. There are some rocks that may include just one mineral formation though.
There are three types of rocks: Igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic. Igneous rocks are formed when molten lava solidifies after an eruption. Igneous rocks are known to be rich in the mineral granite. A few examples of igneous rocks are Pumice and Granite. Sedimentary rocks are formed when deposition of organic matter and chemical precipitates take place. A few examples of Sedimentary rocks are Marble and Slate. Metamorphic rocks are formed by the transformation of one rock type to another. A few examples of metamorphic rocks are Coal, Crude Oil, Limestone, Sandstone, and Shale.

The commercial value of minerals is high and rocks are mined to extract these minerals. Here is just a few used: Granite is used for buildings, monuments, and tombstones. Marble is used for floors and countertops. Pumice is used for scouring, scrubbing, and polishing materials. Quartz is used to make glass, electrical components, and optical lenses. Sandstone is used for buildings and slate is used for chalkboards, roofs, and patios."
