Woodgrove’s Amanda Dukinfield Earns Girl Scout Gold Award

February 4, 2014 by Contributor Lifestyle, People Be the first to comment
gold_award2

Amanda Dukinfield, a junior at Woodgrove High School, has earned the highest award possible within Girl Scouting. Amanda has been a girl scout since kindergarten and has earned her bronze, silver, and gold awards. Amanda’s gold award service project involved 80 hours of service in which she worked with Ken Falke, Founder of Boulder Crest Retreat for Wounded Warriors, in helping beautify the interior of the guest cabins with her local photography. Keeping with the retreat’s rural setting, Amanda took pictures of old stone buildings and barns within western Loudoun that have a patriotic theme such as American flags.

Ken selected five pictures to adorn the walls of each cabin. Amanda then worked with local frame shops to complete her project. She gives special thanks to Photoworks in Leesburg for developing all 20 pictures, to Turner Framing in Sterling for providing all 20 frames, to My Frame Shop in Leesburg, Ashburn Art and Framing in Ashburn, and Nelligan Gallery in Ashburn for matting and finishing the pictures. Amanda will receive her Gold Award medal at the Girl Scout Council Nation’s Capital, Loudoun County teen awards banquet this May.

Kitchen Science Kids: The Mystery of Miscibility

January 8, 2014 by Blue Ridge Leader Lifestyle, People Be the first to comment

By Leah Enright

Miscibility and immiscibility are two fancy words that scientists like to use in their work with liquids. Some liquids are miscible, some are not, (and are therefore immiscible). Well, not surprisingly we’re going to learn the definitions of these words with a simple, (and fun), activity, called a “Wave-In-A-Bottle”.

You’ll need:

A grown-up to approve this activity ?and supervise
1 small empty water bottle, labels removed (I love Aqua Pods for this purpose!)
Vegetable Oil
Water
Food Coloring
Glitter, small beads, or metallic confetti, (if available)
Glue and electrical tape to seal the bottle

Fill the empty water bottle 1/3 full of oil, and drop in any glitter, beads or confetti you may have. Fill the rest of the way with water and no more than one to two drops of food coloring. Glue the cap onto the bottle, screwing it tightly and securing with a strip of electrical tape. Now, swirl and marvel, watching the liquids slide and wave past each other. Once the novelty has worn off, give it a good shake, and observe the results. Leave and check it again ten minutes later. What happened?

What you should have noticed is this oil and water may blend, (given a good shake), but they don’t mix. That is to say, they are immiscible, (not mixable). So, there you have it-miscible and immiscible are not big mysteries after all, they mean mixable and not mixable, (and it is a nice coincidence that those words rhyme.) So, if you confront these terms on a science test at any point in the future, I hope you’ll fondly remember Kitchen Science Kids, and your glittery, immiscible, Wave-In-A-Bottle.

Kathy Ratcliffe, Quilting As Family, Fabric and Thread Memories

January 8, 2014 by Andrea Gaines Lifestyle, People Be the first to comment
kathyradcliffequilts

Growing up I’d hear the whir of my mom’s sewing machine and watch as precious pieces of Irish linen and chintz, French silk tassels, soft spring cottons and colorful yarns were transformed into pillows, slipcovers, dresses, yardstick covers, curtains and tablecloths.

This was the beautiful, everyday fabric art and craft sewn by my mother. Art, craft and handmade delight was as common in our household as my grandmother’s homemade peach marmalade, the greens and flowers we harvested from our garden and yard for the holidays, the shells and rocks we collected as children to edge the driveway and the old barn beams that my dad hand-cut, carved and repurposed into handsome and decorative tables and cabinets.

Interviewing Kathy Ratcliffe just before Christmas in preparation for this January issue of the Blue Ridge Leader all of my family’s wonderful fabric and thread memories came pouring out of me.

Last month I shared my hopes that my daughter would have a successful first Thanksgiving. It was the first time she hosted the family at her home, and, although there was a bit of flurry about serving pieces, etc., she did a fabulous job.

From the start, she happily delegated several of the more complicated side dishes to me, so she could focus on the turkey and the table.

Her table was lovely, decorated with a blue and yellow French tablecloth, flowers in complementary colors and a scattering of yellow paper leaves to give everything a beautiful fall theme. … Continue Reading

Artist’s Profile – Brown Shop Bears

The Thing Of Holiday Dreams

As West Virginia “teddy bear artist” Treva Blackford describes it, “My inspiration comes from a piece of mohair, vintage clothing or accessories. Some times a customer will ask for a certain color or style. Sometimes a family member will make a suggestion. I am always trying to come up with new ideas to keep my work interesting.”

But, it is hard to look at Blackford’s work – her handcrafted teddy bears, bunnies and foxes – and not believe that her inspiration comes from anything less than heaven itself.

Blackford has been making her creations for 20 years. “What got you started?” I asked. To which she replied, “I had always loved quilts but when I tried to make one I wasn’t very good at it so I started making cloth bunnies and other animals. I gradually progressed to mohair teddy bears, bunnies, foxes, etc. Raccoons will be my new animal for 2014! … Continue Reading

Kitchen Science Kids: Bend-y Bones

December 3, 2013 by Blue Ridge Leader Lifestyle, People Be the first to comment
sciencekids

By Leah Enright

Many of us love a fragrant, roasted chicken, and I especially love them because I know a great science activity using a part we often throw away-the bones. So, head to the grocery store and grab a roaster, (and some sweet potatoes if you’re hungry), because this is going to be fun.

You’ll need:
- 2 jars or glasses that can be used for three days
- Enough white vinegar to fill one of the glasses
- 2 chicken bones of similar size, (the thinner the better)

Clean the meat off of the bones and put one in a glass of water, the other in the glass of vinegar (labeling the water jar 1, and the vinegar jar 2). Wait three days, pull them both out, and try to bend them. What happens? If all went according to plan, the bone is jar 1 stayed the same, while the bone in jar 2 that was stiff and rigid three days ago, is soft and pliable now. Wow. How did that happen? Well, our bones are made of both hard and soft materials. Bones have to be soft enough to heal and grow, yet hard enough to stay sturdy when we fall. What makes them hard – minerals, such as calcium. The chicken bone had plenty of minerals in it a few days ago, but the vinegar, which is an acid, dissolved it. This applies to you and your body, too. Minerals keep your bones and teeth hard, and acids dissolve those minerals – so be sure to brush your teeth after drinking acidic beverages like soda or orange juice, and eat plenty of calcium rich foods like yogurt and green leafy vegetables.

So, minerals make bones hard, and that is important for all of the bones in your body.

Remembering Our Bright and Shining Star – Gabriella Miller

November 6, 2013 by Blue Ridge Leader Lifestyle, People Be the first to comment
gabriellamiller

Ten year old Gabriella Miller died at home on October 26, 2013 after a courageous yearlong battle with pediatric brain cancer. In his tribute to Gabriella, Randy Hollister, Headmaster of Loudoun Country Day School where Gabriella attended, spoke of her as “A model student and citizen whose presence lit up the classroom. Every day with Gabriella was pure exhilaration and adventure.”

Gabriella remained true to this description of effervescence during the course of her illness as she became a distinguished and selfless advocate for children with pediatric cancer. As a result of Gabriella’s tireless efforts, she helped to raise more than $275,00 for the Make A Wish Foundation through a letter writing campaign, but she didn’t stop there. Gabriella began a letter writing campaign with Make A Wish – that totaled more than 250,000 letters which were delivered to Macys department store before Christmas last year resulting in a $1 million dollar donation from Macys to Make A Wish Foundation. … Continue Reading

annjackson

Ann Natalie Jacobson (nee Gandrud), 83, of Hamilton died at her home on October 15, 2013, due to cancer. Jacobson was born April 16, 1930, in Fergus Falls, Minn., to the late Elvin Gandrud and Ada Aarrestad Gandrud. After completing the Glenwood Minnesota schools, she attended Concordia College in Moorhead for two years and graduated from the University of Minnesota in December 1951 with a BS degree in business education. At the university, she served on the governor’s youth commission.

She worked as an executive assistant to the president of Neiman Marcus in Dallas prior to her marriage to Gerhard (Jake) Jacobson on August 8, 1953, at the Glenwood Lutheran Church in Glenwood. As the wife of a career army officer, she traveled widely with her husband. In 1965 they spent a year studying Russian prior to his serving with our embassy in Moscow. In 1980 they moved from Mount Vernon to a farm in the foothills of the Blue Ridge which they restored and placed on the National Register of Historic Places. She served on the board of the Land Trust of Virginia and Loudoun Cares. … Continue Reading

Historic Car Recreated by Middleburg Man

As a prominent national paper reported at a recent display of the pictured Bugatti 57SC Aerolithe: “When it comes to recreating history, it’s hard to beat the detective job that it took to remake one of the most famous Bugatti show cars from the 1930s.”

My dad grew up loving historic cars. As a young man he bought the chassis (only thing left) of an old Silver Ghost Rolls Royce just to prevent it from going into the scrap heap. So, when I found out that a local man named Chris Ohrstrom (of Middleburg) had overseen the perfect recreation of a Bugatti Aerolithe, I jumped at the chance to tell our western Loudoun audience about it. … Continue Reading

Artist’s Profile – Valentin Melik

“What set him apart from other kids was his innate gift of drawing the world around him.  On cold and snowy days he would run and play outside under his mother’s watchful eye.  When he would see a bread truck pass by the playground, he would pick up a twig, plop on the snow and draw the bread truck.”

An artist’s life is often as complex and inquisitive as their work. In talking to them, I’ve often found that when they approach a project, they are asking and answering a series of questions. “Where is the light coming from? What makes that object stand out from the one behind it? What color is the marble? And, what temperature? What is the person in my portrait thinking?”

Valentin Melik has one of those lives, complicated and looking for answers, some questions of which relate to the everyday things we all face, such as how to make a living, doing, hopefully, what we believe we were meant to do. … Continue Reading

When the weather turns cold, I love to visit indoor swimming pools. Taking off my jacket and gloves, and putting on a swimsuit makes me feel like I’m somewhere warm and tropical – even if I’m at the Ida Lee Rec Center in Leesburg. Of course, I always see lots of kids running, (and being reminded not to run) throwing foamy footballs, and playing with paddle boards. There are even a few babies with puffy, orange inflatable arm bands helping them float with smiling grown-ups. Though everyone is having a good time, and probably very few are thinking about science, there are quite a few principles at play here – one of them is well illustrated with a simple science activity. To see it in action try this: … Continue Reading
