6/6/2015(MBA Jane) For this week’s Stitching and Crafting/Ink Slinger Expert Level Merit Badge, I had to pick a genre of writing.

6/7/2015 (Meg) We asked the girls to showcase the new swing we recently finished at the farm. They were happy to accommodate. (Look for instructions for making a barrel-stave swing like ours in the next issue of MaryJanesFarm, out mid-July.)

Uncle Brian gave them some pretty big pushes … http://bit.ly/1KiuaGB

(MBA Jane) For this week’s Outpost/Disconnect to Reconnect Intermediate Level Merit Badge, I did a little kidnapping.
Oh, pshaw, Janey, my girl, I can hear you say. You would never!
Yes. Yes, I would.

Only my victims weren’t kiddos, they were fully grown adults … http://bit.ly/1GZvjBk

It’s a new age, and one of its most annoying catch phrases seems to be “Whatever!” Even though my late father-in-law, Ivan, would use the phrase, “Well, whatever …” to successfully end whatever conversation he no longer wished to participate in, today’s teenagers have taken the word to a whole new high (or low) in dismissiveness … http://bit.ly/1TIkjhc

6/23/2015 You may remember me telling you about Bird Song Hero, and online game that helps you learn to identify the cheeps and tweets you hear in the trees outside your window.

Well, the ever-clever “birdbrains” at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology have now teamed up with the Visipedia Computer Vision Group at Cornell Tech to bring us the Merlin Bird Photo ID, a website that can identify 400 of the mostly commonly encountered birds in the United States and Canada using photographs uploaded by bird watchers … http://bit.ly/1JgKsAG

(MBA Jane) For this week’s Outpost/Pampered Pets Expert Level Merit Badge, I sat Ms. Twinkles down and had a stern discussion. My frolic-y, paranoid, yappy, temperamental Pomeranian sometimes needs a good, old-fashioned, come-to-Jesus type of talk, and since she had just gone through my trash and yakked up a chicken bone all while barking madly at a leaf blowing by the window, I figured now was as good a time as any. In order to earn my Expert Level Merit Badge, this was my mission: http://bit.ly/1LCPqrW

6/29/2015 (Meg) Hmmm, is it more entertainment they need, or is it just too hard to be siblings sharing a house during the summer? Either way, these two were doing this long enough that I had time to leave the room and find my camera. Cracked me up! http://bit.ly/1LEc4Av
