    Unfortunately that type of thing is getting more common Hagrid, the standard of driving has dropped dramatically....

    yes, that's generally why I don't use motorways much, only VERY early in the morning when its fairly empty.
    but this happened on a fast but little used road, I don't know what the artic was doing on that road, most traffic uses the A30 trunk road which in places runs alongside this road. I use this other road because its more rural and its has less traffic-usually just locals using it and I can cut across country from it.

    I'm grateful to the local Bee Keepers Association, for their really, really interesting introduction to beekeeping course. I can't wait for the next one.

    We need to support bees more. Such magical creatures and key to keeping our ecosystems functioning.

    I'm grateful to my friend Heather, for picking me up and taking me to Hexham. We had a fab day out, and I bought a lovely wall hanging for Iris.

    You are so right. Todays tutor was a very experienced man indeed, solid practical advice from a man passionate about the survival of bees. The day was all classroom, in truth I expected it to be hard going, but his delivery and enthusiasm made the day fly past and this evening when I re-read my beekeeping book it all made sense.

    Even if you don't have room for a hive yourself, it's worth looking for a local course, because you can ask landowners for permission to site one on their land. Bear in mind that a hive will need a visit every 5 days.

    Bees in the UK will struggle to survive without human help - varoa mite, introduced from Asia, can be controlled with human help but "wild" hives are doomed to die. Bees need your help now.

    it is said if the (honey) bees die out humans will follow 4 years after, so do all you can for the bees.

    Today I'm grateful that I went to a rave yesterday and that spring is almost here. I love the sun and seeing all the colors of nature once more after the winter. Eating salad in nature is what I'm gonna enjoy today =)
    Love everyone, even those who hate you, because they need your love the most.

    And you can plant bee loving flowers like French honeysuckle, verbena, thyme, vipers bugloss and comfrey...so many more. Or build a bee box. Lots of websites show how to construct simple ones.
    Another way to support a dying bee is to put sugar (organic not sweeteners) and water 2:1 ratio on a saucer for the bee to feed on.
    I saw one of these varroa mites latched onto a honeybee about 20 years ago. So sad that they are still killing off bees.

    Today I am grateful for having the opportunity to join a very special singing group :heart: Companion Voices is the project of a beautiful lady who is based in watford but is slowly setting up companion voice groups so that we might learn a handful of, specially selected for their gorgeous harmonies, learn them so that they are as natural to us as breathing... so that we might, in small groups, use the tones and vibrations of the songs with full heart-centred presence, to assist the transitioning of those at end of life :heart:
    If we are to heal the planet, we must begin by healing birthing.

    Being told by the head teacher that my 8 year son who has speech & language difficulties has a top IQ after a series of cognitive tests. And being offered a job in my dream work as a reflexologist. Lovely sunny day!
