If you thought Boy Scouts had an opinion just wait! I posted a comment/question in a Girl Scout leader thread and so far it has 100+ responses!

The danger I am falling into a little bit is trying to make sure everything is 100% the way I want it in the new space. I still have a few more days of work to get the shelving just right. The goal right now is to get the mounds of stuff off the floor and then over time I...Read More

I think they have taken an interesting approach to the logjam of cataloging the last 10 years of OA issues since the Blue Book effort wrapped up.
