Thinking Day Blogging Meme for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts

The Baden-Powell memorial at Westminster Abbey, London
Thinking Day is February 22nd, the mutual birthdays of Scouting founders Lord and Lady Baden-Powell.  Baron Robert Baden-Powell was born 22 February 1857 in London, and his wife, Olave St. Clair Soames was born 22 February 1889.  Both of them are buried at St. Peter’s Cemetery in Nyeri, Kenya, and are commemorated with a large plaque on the floor of Westminster Abbey by the Great West Door.
