    That is absolutely fabuluous. I turned 77 last week, but in my time was both a Brownie and a Girl Guide, in fact can remember being the only girl guide once to turn up to a church parade,and have a photo still to prove it.. I credit my girl guiding with shaping my life a terrific amount, as way back then, we had no computer, television, mobile phone, and not even a telephone connected. I went to st. Peters church of england, in Victoria Park western australia, a suburb literally of Perth then. both brownies and girl guides, and was under two sisters called Betty Cole and Pat Cole, in fact about 5 years ago met up with one of them again. I can still remember some of the old songs, like the one about a Kookaburra. Kokaburra sits in an old gum tree, merry merry king of the world is he, laugh Kookaburra, laugh kookaburra, gay your life must be, and this was sung in rounds. Probably if I really thought about it, could remember others. Its a wonderful learning experience, so good, it will never be forgotten. Congrats to all.
