Area 2-H 1965 Conclave Neckerchief

Here is another neckerchief from Area 2-H for their 1965 Conclave. The silk-screened design has the mid-60’s look and feel, but does not identify the host lodge, camp or council. It is forward looking in that the dates are 1965 and 2015. 1965 was the 50th Anniversary of the OA, and this neckerchiefs looks into the future of 2015, the 100th Anniversary of the OA.

The OA Conclave Handbook does not list any other issues for this conclave, is anyone aware of any other issues?

And you thought blogging was easy?

In Web World of 24/7 Stress, Writers Blog Till They Drop

They work long hours, often to exhaustion. Many are paid by the piece — not garments, but blog posts. This is the digital-era sweatshop. You may know it by a different name: home.

A growing work force of home-office laborers and entrepreneurs, armed with computers and smartphones and wired to the hilt, are toiling under great physical and emotional stress created by the around-the-clock Internet economy that demands a constant stream of news and comment.

This is hardly digging ditches, and this is a hobby not my attempt to become a 100K a year blogger. But like anything else you can become too focussed even obsessive. Take time with family and friends, watch spring begin as things green up and flower. Enjoy life.
