    Thank you for posting this. i have shared on facebook as a lot of my friends are like me and want to save the bees. I just wish that the rest of the world would stop and take a deep think about a world without bees.

      Me, too. Sadly, it seems that most folks simply don’t ‘think’ at all! I wonder therefore, what exactly is going on in their brains…is it a blank screen or is it filled with soap operas, reality shows or the latest bling? 😉
