A truly SWEET story


Okay, do you remember, my loyal blog-readers, the post I did a couple months ago about the plight of the honeybee? {If not, it's okay - you can look in the 'older posts' and find it so you can get caught up here}

So now, one of the truly SWEETest stories I ever read, THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES, is out on the big screen -- and it sure looks like it promises to be a good flick. I first read TSLOB when it came out in an Advanced Reader Copy, so it was before it even hit the bookstores -- I knew then, THIS is going to be a big hit. Little did I know it would make it to Hollywood, let alone starring Queen Latifah & Dakota Fanning, et al.

To read about the BOOK, you can visit the author's page at: www.suemonkkidd.com/SecretLifeOfBees

And remember, we ALL need to do our part to ... save the honeybees! Read more about this worrisome issue here (link below), KEEPING IN MIND that the average worker bee makes just 1/12 teaspoon of honey IN ITS LIFETIME:

How sweet it would be to see a reversal of this terrible honey bee decline, hmmm? (or should I just say buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz !?)

Yes, by all means..save the bees!!
I remember your Dad had a certain bush in his front yard that they would come visit every Spring. It was a meeting place for a large bee colony before moving on to another location. It looked like a big "bee ball." Frank was always so concerned about our kids getting stung, but they never harmed anyone. I love a good nature story.:)TTFN BZZZZZZZZZ! ;)
