Winter = no toiling in the yard or other work around the house, with sweat
dripping off me, etc.
Winter = skiing, which is MUCH more fun. Carving graceful arcs in fresh
powder, bumpin' down a mogul field , or getting a major rush by blasting
straight down a ski hill at 50mph -- all the while enjoying fresh air and an
awesome mountain view.

Tonight on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams:
What do bees have to do with how much you spend on groceries? Without them,
crops face potential disaster. Now they're dying by the thousands. What's
killing them off and what's being done to save them?
that's really hit my area (central calif) hard.. they say that farmers here
can't get enough bees, because the parasite spreads so fast that all the "new"
bees get it..
Very serious concern, since the #1 #2 produce income counties are here..
(about 14 billion a year, if I remember the numbers right)

A typical almond farm rents 100,000 hives in the spring. They usually
pay $40 - $50 per hive. This year they paid $100 per hive. They were
digging them out of the snow in Montana to take them to Califonia.
I lost 55% of my hives last winter. I'm hard on them, I harvest them
all winter long, but I usually only lose 20%. It's getting tough.
Greg, I'm sorry but I got this mental picture of you reaching in a hive,
snatching onto a bee and holding it up to your schnoz. Then the ole bee
decides that your beak would make an easy target and well, you get the point
