Allison Clark (Allison Clark, #8292) has received a certificate of achievement in Garden Gate for earning a Beginner Level Horse Dreams Merit Badge!

“I went around and looked at horses. I then went to a horse show and pet them and took some pictures. My favorite house was the American quarter horse. I thought it was the prettiest of all the horses that I saw that day. My friend was with me and help me to identify them. It was fun looking at horses and trying to identify them.”

“I read the book Soul of a Horse. I then did research on the American Quarter Horse. The Quarter Horse is an American breed of horse that excels at sprinting short distances. Its name is derived from its ability to outrun other horse breeds in races of a quarter mile or less; some have been clocked at speeds up to 55 mph (88.5 km/h). The development of the Quarter Horse traces to the 1600s. "Quarter Horse", named after the 1#8260;4 mile (0.40 km) race distance at which it excelled. I went on the website and watched the videos and looked at quite a bit of different things.

It was fun learning about the American Quarter horse and loved going on the website and watching the videos.”

Allison Clark (Allison Clark, #8292) has received a certificate of achievement in Each Other for earning a Beginner Level Languages/Culture Merit Badge!

“I did my research on the Irish culture. The culture of Ireland includes language, literature, music, art, folklore, cuisine, and sports associated with Ireland and the Irish people. For most of its recorded history, Irish culture has been primarily Gaelic. Religion and religious ceremonies are important in Irish culture. They play a major role in holidays and festivals. In the Irish culture, there is an emphasis on foods such as potatoes, bread, cereal, and meat, as well as vegetables such as cabbage and broccoli. Irish dance is also well-known around the world. Amazing things Ireland is famous for & gave the world is the Riverdance – lord of the dance.
The arts – another of the top things Ireland is famous for.
Irish hospitality – the friendliest country.
The drinks – our mouths are watering.
The food – the land of hearty meals.
Landscape – rugged, wild, and just magical.
Incredible history – an ancient country. There is so much more this is just a little bit of what I did my research on. I do not speak the language, but I did learn how to count to ten in Gaelic.
1. A haon, 2. A dó, 3. A trí, 4. A ceathair, 5. A cúig , 6. A sé , 7. A seacht, 8. A hocht, 9. A naoi, 10. A deich. I watched a youtube video. This was fun to do, I enjoyed learning to count to 10 in Gaelic.”

“I chose to do my research on an Irish saint. Saint Patrick was a fifth-century Romano-British Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland. Known as the "Apostle of Ireland", he is the primary patron saint of Ireland. According to the autobiographical Confessio of Patrick, when he was about sixteen, he was captured by Irish pirates from his home in Britain and taken as a slave to Ireland. Looking after animals; he lived there for six years before escaping and returning to his family. After becoming a cleric, he returned to northern and western Ireland. In later life, he served as a bishop, but little is known about the places where he worked. By the seventh century, he had already come to be revered as the patron saint of Ireland.

Saint Patrick's Day is observed on 17 March, the supposed date of his death. It is celebrated inside and outside Ireland as a religious and cultural holiday. In the dioceses of Ireland, it is both a solemnity and a holy day of obligation; it is also a celebration of Ireland itself. I am not learning the language as of yet. But will watch youtube videos just for fun.

I learned so much about Saint Patrick that I did not know. It was fun doing the research.”

“I did my research on the holidays for Ireland. I picked Saint Patrick's day. St. Patrick's Day is the feast day of St. Patrick, a patron saint of Ireland. Originally celebrated with religious feasts and services, St. Patrick's Day became a secular celebration of Irish culture when it reached the United States alongside Irish immigrants. St. Patrick's Day is celebrated annually on March 17, the anniversary of St. Patrick's death in 461. St. Patrick was a 5th-century missionary to Ireland who is credited with bringing Christianity to Ireland. The March 17 celebration started in 1631 when the Church established a Feast Day honoring St. Patrick. They Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with Irish-inspired foods like corned beef and cabbage, shepherd's pie, and Irish soda bread. we still do. I made corned beef and cabbage, Irish soda bread, bacon potato cabbage soup for our celebration. I loved every bite and so did my family and friend. We had special dishes to eat on also. I love to do beading and made this for my beaded bookmark for my husband. It says "often often often goes the Christ in the strangers guise".

Everything tasted so good. I had such a fun time cooking and visiting and eating.”

“At our Farmgirl club meeting, I had a book challenge at our zoom meeting. I crowned the winner with a handmade card and gave her a gift. We brought our favorite children's book and read it to each other. We also did a cookbook swap. I made a little library of about 25 books that are for loan. I placed it on my front porch. I've let my friends and family know they are on loan. I enjoyed having the fun party and doing the swap. I think it was a success.”

“I researched ways I can get involved in the community to control littering. The next 2 events are May 1st called trash the trash day and adopting a park.

Due to the pandemic I did litter removals with family members and I've enclosed 2 pictures of my most recent walks.

The garbage patch is 1.6 million miles long and stretches from the West Coast to Japan and also From the East Hawaii to California. In 2019 system 001/B is working to clean up the garbage patch it will take 67 ships to clean up for one year the 2 countries that dump the most garbage are China and Indonesia.”

Candy Hogan (tigger9777, #8283) has received a certificate of achievement in Garden Gate for earning a Beginner Level Backyard Farmer Merit Badge!

“I don't currently raise chickens anymore but there is a renter on my ranch that has over 200 birds and his chickens usually have 12 loose on my ranch and they lay eggs in my barn, feed troughs and anywhere they find a good spot to nest. There is a photo of one of the chickens on her eggs in my barn and I do collect the loose eggs and use them.

They are free range chickens so they are eating bugs and grasses and leftover grains from the cattle area but I've included photos of different feed tags from from when I had our own birds.”

Candy Hogan (tigger9777, #8283) has received a certificate of achievement in Each Other for earning an Expert Level Languages/Culture Merit Badge!

“I researched the different Holidays for Mexico: 1/1 New Years, 2/5 Constitution Day, 3/15 Benito Juarez Day, 4/2 Good Friday, 5/1 Labor Day, 7/5 Mexican Legislative Election, 9/16 Mexican Independence Day, 11/15 Revolution Day, 12/25 Christmas.
For Traditions, they do: Dias de los Muertos, Las Posadas, Bull Fighting, Siestas, Cinco de Mayo, Pinatas.

I chose to celebrate Benito Juarez Birthday on March 15th and do my presentation to my family.

El Día de Benito Juárez (Benito Juárez Day) is a national Mexican holiday celebrating Mexico’s former president and national hero’s March 21st birthday.

A liberalist and a reformist, Juárez was born to indigenous Zapatec parents in 1806. He grew up in a poor peasant household in the Sierra mountains of Oaxaca. Yet, despite his humble upbringing, Juárez went on to become a well-educated lawyer and later married Margarita Maza who was part of an upper-class family in Oaxaca City.

He first became involved in state politics in Oaxaca and was the federal deputy of the Liberal party, which in 1846 had taken power throughout Mexico. From 1847 to 1848, Juárez became Oaxaca’s acting governor and during this time he built roads, public buildings and schools as well as curbed corruption.

Juárez went on to become one of Mexico’s most celebrated presidents, serving five presidential terms between 1858 and 1872. He was also Mexico’s first indigenous president.

The famed Mexican hero led the country during two civil wars – the Guerra de Reforma (War of the Reform) and the Segunda Intervención Francesa en México (French Intervention). He is remembered as a strong and diligent leader who is remembered for resisting French occupation, overthrowing the Empire, restoring the republic, for modernizing the country, and for promoting indigenous people’s rights.

Juárez is regarded as one of Mexico’s greatest heroes. As well as having a national holiday named in his honor, almost every Mexican city has a street named after him and he is pictured on the 20-peso note.

It was interesting.”

Candy Hogan (tigger9777, #8283) has received a certificate of achievement in Cleaning Up for earning an Expert Level Water Conservation Merit Badge!

“I tracked my water usage from February 6th through March 21st.
I live on a ranch with well water, so to figure out my usage, you have to calculate your well water flow. You measure the amount of flow using a stop watch. Divide the gallon size of the bucket by the number of seconds to fill it. Then divide by 60. My well is 8 gallons per minute. After figuring out how many gallons our toilets, dishwasher, showers and hand washing dishes use up plus any plant watering, I did the math and we used 1,767 gallons during the time of this badge work.

Next I figured how much per week which equals 108.57. The US average is 60 gallons per person per day and 138 gallons per house per day. We are below that figure at 108.57, so we are doing really well.”
