If you have been trying to help scouts cook balanced, healthy, wholesome meals on campouts, you might as well give up on breakfast this year.
General Mills is giving away 10,000 boxes of Marshmallow Only Lucky Charms cereal!
When scouts go shopping for food, they might notice the specially-marked boxes of Lucky Charms on retail stores across the U.S. this month that include a code on the inside back panel. Just enter that 14-digit code at MarshmallowOnly.com to see if you are one of the 10,000 lucky winners.
In 2015, GM gave away 10 boxes, but this year it is 10,000 boxes!
Did you know Lucky Charms has been around for 50 years? 50 years! I have been eating it my entire life, but I think an entire box of marshmallows would make me sick.
Green clovers, yellow moon, orange star, and pink heart were the originals I enjoyed. Then, blue diamond, purple horseshoe, red balloon, and magic rainbow crept in over the years.
Well, at least maybe the scouts will brush after breakfast and they'll have enough energy for the morning!

With a mild winter and warmer spring, vegetation around here is earlier than usual. I found these new growth poison ivy plants just getting started on my hike this morning. In 2013, poison ivy was almost a month later. The garlic mustard and buckthorn are also already green and growing. Sumac and honey suckle are looking strong, too.
When you're out hiking and camping, keep an eye out for these "bad" plants and steer clear.
It looks like it could be a very bad year for invasive species, at least here. This could be a great opportunity for scouts to step up and help out local parks, trails, and public lands groups with beating back some of these invaders. Check around and see how your troop can pitch in and help out.
