    I really like your website. I have been using your site for my Cub Scout pack for the last few years and have found all the resources very helpful. BUT, lately, the ads that come up with your site have been making it very hard to use and navigate around.

    Thank you for putting this together! I have a small suggestion to correct one part: dishwashers are more efficient and save more energy and water than washing dishes by hand. I used to think the same thing!
