Sorry to hear about your bees. Hope things get better for you soon.

Hello! Did you use a water filter? Did you keep running it through? It will eventually not be grey any more. Don't throw it away!
I lost my bees.
I am so upset.
Until 2 days I had 2 beautiful hives,( wait for my instructable)
And then I found out, I somehow missedpaying my house insurance( 100% disabled now, just no $ yet)

I had a choice, no house insurance, or sell my stuff,
I sold both Hives, my sugarsyrum, freshly made, 12 lbs pollen patties and 10
Lbs od fondant

But I think this had to happen.
My daughter is paranoidly afraid of any insects, hornets, beetles, even sweet bees,
I am crushed

So i panicked.

Mad Hatter's Tea Party

Have you ever been to a restaurant where everybody has their smart phone on the table beside them, bleeping, whistling and vibrating alongside the intelligent conversations you are having with your friends? This certainly happens to me quite regularly and I'm starting to wonder if the phones are trying to join in the conversation.

A group of friends from high school meet every fives years to catch up with each other and the next time they meet, in 5 years time, their phones are out on the table once more. But this time, rather than just the normal bleeping and squeaking, the phones are actually engaging in with the conversation and are seen as a necessary and highly amusing side show to the event. Their actual level of conversation is fairly limited and everybody laughs when they the phones make another ridiculously inappropriate comment. 

After another 5 years have passed, the phones are out on the table once more, but this time nobody's laughing at them any more. The mood is generally more serious and people are drinking a lot more alcohol than at the previous event. The phones are now joining in with the conversation and making 'intelligent' comments and providing practical solutions for people's problems. More alcohol is consumed and the conversation starts to lapse into the realm of drunken stupidity and the phones start to loose interest in their human counterparts. Instead, they carry on talking to each other and, as a joke, the high school friends pick up all the phones and put them in a carrier bag and stash them under the table.

The question is: What happens after another five years have passed?

Since you appear to be a true thinking person (this conclusion is drawn from looking through the rash of instructables you have turned out lately) I am going to give you a couple of things to think about. And no I am not meaning to be sarcastic or unkind or anything like that. I am amused, which is really what an author strives for. Anyway.

1. In terms of politics --- In the history of mankind there has never existed a government that has not failed. If there was one it would still be here. So why is it that in spite of that overwhelming evidence that people believe that whatever government they are under is going to exist forever as the greatest government?

2. In every one of these end of the world fiction stories where there are only a few million people left why do they all run around shooting and killing each other and especially violate the most basic rule of survival which is ALWAYS PROTECT THE BREEDING STOCK. You don't kill or harm females that are capable of having offspring. It will doom you to extinction. Nothing matters about them except that they can have children. Gay people become extinct as well as murderer's and factions that cannot cooperate with the survivors. Why doesn't anyone understand that the only path to survival is to build viable communities. That is where the future is, not in idiots running around with guns.

3. Why is it that atheists don't understand that they actually do belong to a religion because atheism is in and of itself a religion?

4. Why is it a surprise to an atheist that they have trouble getting along with others of their faith? When their "faith" has no principles that are common to all then there are no principles and no reason to hold anyone to any kind of standard because by definition they have no common standards or morals. Hence having no common moral standard each can make their own morality which will always put them at odds with everyone else and thus they will never be able to achieve any kind of peace.

Just some things for future discussion.

Keep in mind that since the e mail notifications are not working I may not notice if you comment on any of these.

I aim and generally succeed to get on with everybody from all faiths and creeds. It's just a case of respecting the fact that people have different ideas and celebrating those differences. I'd personally find it incredibly boring if everybody agreed with me, so 'vive la difference' as they say in France. If people disgree, they don't have to be nasty to each other and peace can be maintained fairly easily. It's the 'Be nice' policy. There's not that much religion where I live and this policy seems to work quite well. I know it's different in the USA where religion is much more important and I've seen first hand some really good things that the church is doing there so I would not criticise it too strongly

I don't really know and suspect that I am not a proper atheist myself. I just go on what I have experienced in my life. Some of it has been very strange and most of the meaningful bits I am sure I will never really understand intellectually - I end up running out of words!

Well, if I were the Hollywood script writer, I'd do all that stuff and then might show that eventually everything calms down and we get back to normal life. I guess it's just a bit boring, that's all!
