Marsha Jaramillo (Marjean #308) has received a certificate of achievement in Each Other for earning an Expert Level Greatest Generation Merit Badge!

“It was a pleasure to sit down with my Mother and talk about what she knew from her family tree. I love genealogy and have traced back the 4 sides of my family off and on over the years. It was always difficult to find information about my Mom's Father's side of the family.

I was able to trace 2 sides back 5 generations coming over on the Mayflower. My Mother's Mom was adopted so we don't have any information about her side. My Mom's Grandfather changed their name at some point before coming to Florida. So, that is why the trail always went cold so to speak.”

Marlene Laverty (MarleneL, #7503) has received a certificate of achievement in Farm Kitchen for earning a Beginner Level Know Your Food Merit Badge!

“I started this badge by keeping a food journal. I was surprised at what I was eating. Nothing like keeping a journal to hold yourself accountable. No wonder I have been over weight for the past ten years. I started by eliminating corn oils, vegetable oils, and all fast food. It was tough, but reading Animal, Vegetable, and Miracle was inspirational and it helped me to re-think my food choices.

I also started to sprout my own seeds. I picked and organic non gmo seed mix to sprout. I also added more fruits and veggies to my diet.

The food journal was a bit embarrassing. I knew I wasn't eating right, but seeing it in writing helped me make better choices. I sprouted some seeds and discovered I liked them a lot! I finished reading Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. I need to sprout more each week than I thought. Adding more fruits and veggies is just a matter of replacing all my bad food choices with much better ones. Using coconut oil and olive oil to cook with helped too. After a few weeks I started to feel better too. I think I am starting to look better too!”

Marlene Laverty (MarleneL, #7503) has received a certificate of achievement in Make It Easy for earning a Beginner Level Mindfulness Meditation Merit Badge!

“I started by looking at the different meditations available and how it affected the mind and body. I decided to start working with guided meditations. After a little web search, I found some for free on the web. I did find a meditation coach that I really liked so I decided to buy one of his guided meditation downloads and put it on my mp3 player.

I read that meditation can help lower your cortisol levels, lower blood pressure, and also help bolster memory and some studies hint that it can even create new neurological pathways in the brain. Amazing!

Well, I have been doing my meditations for over a week now and I have found that I am becoming a bit more organized, a lot less stressed out about everything, and more creative. I am able to do a 12 to 17 minute guided meditation after my morning yoga and I love it.”

Helen Ettlin (Helen Ettlin, #7130) has received a certificate of achievement in Cleaning Up for earning an Expert Level Recycling Merit Badge!

“I have recycled for nine years and got my daughter to recycle as well. When we moved to this area, we found we had to drive about ten miles to the nearest recycling center. Rather than going once a week as we had been doing, we went once a month with a larger load.

Unfortunately, our trash company decided to raise the rates on recycling centers to the point that most host companies decided to remove them. There are now no recycling centers open anywhere near us.”

Sheila LaPoint (VT Oma, #5766) has received a certificate of achievement in Farm Kitchen for earning a Beginner Level Canning Merit Badge!

“I read the Ball Blue Book, Guide to Home Canning, Freezing & Dehydration.

I looked at three different canned goods to try and decide how they were canned.

I learned about two different method, one was the Boiling Water method, and the other was the Steam - Pressure method. I learned that Boiling Water Method was for foods that is high in acid and that the boiling water should be at a temperature of 212 F. Steam-Pressure Method is for foods that are low-acid foods, which must be heated to temperature of 240 F to destroy bacterial spores.

I also looked at 3 different canned goods. Diced tomatoes Italian style which I thought would be the boiling water method, Whole kernel corn, I thought would be the Steam Pressure canning method, and last was some Applesauce, which I thought would be made using the boiling water method.”

Sheila LaPoint (VT Oma, #5766) has received a certificate of achievement in Farm Kitchen for earning an Intermediate Level Canning Merit Badge!

“I brought my supplies up from the cellar and washed them up. I realized I had to run to the store for more lids. I made 2 different kinds of jam.

1. Organic Strawberry Jam, I went to an organic strawberry pick your own place the day before.
2. Rhubarb Jam where I picked the rhubarb from my yard, I bought some rhubarb jam from a road side stand and it was very good, so I wanted to try making some.

I cooked the fruit and Liquid Certo when it was ready I put it into hot jars sealed them and then put them into the water bath for 10 min. took them out and had them on the counter waiting to hear the ping which meant the jar was sealed, I also looked to see if the center of the lid was indented. All my jam sealed: 5 strawberry jam and 5 rhubarb jam.

My husband said the little bit of strawberry jam that was in the pot tasted good, he cleaned it up. I will be sharing some of my jam with my sister in-law and a niece, and will explain the process and my recipe with them.”

Gae Gundersen-Barry (GGBQuilter, #7534) has received a certificate of achievement in Garden Gate for earning a Beginner Level The Secret Life of Bees Merit Badge!

“I recently read the book 'The Secret Life of Bees' and watched the movie. My garden has established bee friendly plants: yarrow, beebalm, lamb's ear and lilac.

I was happy that my niece had the book and I was able to borrow it. She also enjoyed the movie and suggested I watch it after I finished the book! This has been a fun badge for me plus my niece! She is thrilled that I am earning badges. I am happy that I already had a few bee friendly plants in my garden!”

Gae Gundersen-Barry (GGBQuilter, #7534) has received a certificate of achievement in Outpost for earning a Beginner Level Pampered Pets Merit Badge!

“This badge has already been earned! I am fortunate to share that my dogs have always been pampered and that their Vet has a holistic practice. Flower essence from Green Hope Farms is endorsed and very beneficial for Honey & Macie. They know when a box has arrived in the mail! They each take MSM as well. Dog food has always been researched and Honey and Macie have been enjoying GMO free food for quite some time.

Healthy pups! That is the result of an outstanding Vet, flower essence, MSM and GMO free food! So thankful I can pamper Honey and Macie!”

Gae Gundersen-Barry (GGBQuilter, #7534) has received a certificate of achievement in Outpost for earning a Beginner Level Disconnect to Reconnect Merit Badge!

“Being a person who now basically lives an 'unplugged' life, it is easy to earn this badge. I did not have to unplug for an extended period of time because I'm rarely plugged in! Several years ago, I started to realize the amount of time I was plugged in at work and the strain it was putting on my body. I made unplugging at home a priority. I have been retired for a year and am thrilled that I can be unplugged almost daily!

Being unplugged is a wonderful experience as there is so much less stress on my eyes, neck and back! There is also more time to sew, read or just sit and enjoy the sounds of nature!”

Ann Gee (#7351) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning an Intermediate Level Aprons Merit Badge!

“I made a full apron by using a panel and fussy cutting it. I used the large picture on the panel for the bottom of the apron and added fabric that matched and added some ruffle also. I appliqued a smaller picture that was on the panel for the top and used Velcro on one end of the neck piece to attach the pc that goes over the neck.

I spent a lot of time on this but I was very happy with the results. I wore it to my quilt groups meeting where we all wore aprons that we made. Wow, such fun aprons!”

“I researched the opportunities that having a library card for my area afforded me. I also read two books that were on my TBR list. Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy and Bone Gap by Laura Ruby, I shared this on my blog.

Bone Gap ended up being one of my favorite reads this year. I enjoyed the magical realism aspect and read it in one sitting.”

Aidan Murphy (aidanm, #7664) has received a certificate of achievement in Outpost for earning a Beginner Level Rocks and Minerals Merit Badge!

“I did comprehensive research to answer the following questions:
Research the difference between rocks and minerals.
According to the United States Geological Survey,

'A mineral is a naturally occurring inorganic element or compound having an orderly internal structure and characteristic chemical composition, crystal form, and physical properties.

'A rock is an aggregate of one or more minerals, or a body of undifferentiated mineral matter.'

Learn about the characteristics of minerals and identify the three types of rocks.
There are 5 characteristics of minerals. They are:

Solid
Formed by inorganic processes
Naturally occuring
Definite chemical composition
Definite crystalline structure
There are three types of rocks:

Igneous Rocks – solidify from molten rock
Sedimentary Rocks – these rocks are layered
Metamorphic Rocks – these form where sedimentary, igneous or preexisting metamorphic rocks are changed by heat pressure and/or chemically reactive waters.
(per American Museum of Natural History)

Research the ways rocks and minerals are used in our everyday life.
Rocks and minerals are used in many varieties of ways in our daily lives. I chose the top 5 ways that I found most interesting and had not heard of before.

Beryllium – used in the manufacturing of light, X-Ray tubes and by the nuclear industry
Gypsum – used in the manufacture of ‘sheetrock; or wallboard
Molybdenite – when alloyed with other metals, this improves hardness. Used principally in catalytic converters but also to make jewelry
Soda Ash – used to make glass containers
Vanadium – used in metal alloys for aerospace applications

Detailed here.

I was refreshed on geology from elementary school, so that was really interesting. I also learned about uses for minerals I never knew existed such as Soda Ash and Vanadium.”

“I started a latch hooking project. I've been latch hooking since I was little, but haven't done it in years. I've spent over 25 hours on this project so far and I'm barely 30% of the way through!

So far so good. I'm really enjoying the way it is turning out and am looking forward to giving it to my mom for her birthday.”

Ann Socolofsky (#7692) has received certificates of achievement in Each Other for earning the Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert Levels of the Entrepreneurial Spirit Merit Badge!

“I am glad to be a part of the farm girl community. I have followed the magazines for years and I decided to take the plunge.

I would like to be recognized for the Entrepreneur Badge. I believe I have achieved all three levels.

In 1998 I was diagnosed with a serious lung disease called pulmonary hypertension. I was a newly divorced mother with sons, aged 9 and 7. Although I was trained as a family physician, I soon discovered that it was hard to keep a regular clinical schedule and care for my sons and my personal health. I went on disability for a short time, but that didn’t suit me at all, so I created my own business.

I started American Medical Exams, PA in 2006. I specialized in the medical work up that is required for all immigrants who become legal United States citizens. This requires a special certification from the government as a civil surgeon. Over the years I have helped more than 2300 people, from countries all over the world, become US citizens. (At last count, 33% were from Mexico, 20% were from India, and the remainder were from every continent except Antarctica.) I have taught other physicians how to do the same work that I have done.

In addition, I expanded the work at my office. I have provided help for military veterans with disabilities and for uninsured patients. I think this meets all three levels of the badge. (Here is my website.)

I am still doing clinical work part time. I am also developing a blog to help other physicians find ways to work when they face similar problems.

However, I am slowing down to devote time to my family and hopefully, find a farm of my own. I look forward to having the time to work on more merit badges and make friends within the community.

If I can help other women become successful entrepreneurs, I would be happy to provide this service to the community.

I have now been a successful entrepreneur for more than 12 years!”

Rebecca Spohn (#7469) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a Beginner Level Scrapbooking Merit Badge!

“I turned a 3" x 3" tiny tin into an accordion scrapbook. Unfortunately, my father recently passed away so I wanted to make a keepsake of memories for my mom who was, of course, very sad and depressed. When you open the tin and open the accordion card stock pages filled with favorite photo moments and uplifting phrases, it is meant to bring a smile to my mom's face.

I am very happy to say that the mini scrapbook has made my mom very happy and she even carries it with her in her purse. She said she is able to open it whenever she is feeling blue and it lifts her spirits.”

Debbie Cox (OneRedZinnia, #5585) has received a certificate of achievement in Each Other for earning an Expert Level Calligraphy Merit Badge!

“Using different mediums I created a sign which reads "Some See A Weed Some See A Wish".

I did my best but I have to admit Calligraphy is not my area of expertise! I used different mediums to create my sign. I used different nibs and then also used colored chalk. It is a small 5x7 sign which I will display in my craft room. I'm glad I tried this craft. I now know how its done. Even though I struggle with getting it to look uniform I know with more practice I will get there!”

“I made a simple stitch blanket. I combined several simple stitches I recalled from childhood, and just kept adding until it turned into a small throw blanket.

It turned out good. First time I have not made a triangle! I tend to loose count, and end up with odd shapes lol.”

“I took poles we have had left over from fencing and tied them up with left over baler twine. I then planted pole beans and Scarlet runners around the poles.

This is the best results I have had. This photo was taken a few weeks ago. The beans are reaching the top of the pole! Very happy every time I look at it!”
