Just a quick note...
It was a fun day and Laura was really excited to see inside a beehive for the first time in her life. I left out that when she was taping the buzzing sounds my neighbor had some really loud Polka music blairing away and Laura walked next door to ask him to kill the music. He popped his head out of the upstairs window and asked what was up, I explained she was from NPR doing a show on the bees and needed quiet to record the bee sounds.
My neighbor is fairly ecclectic in his music tastes, it started out with Ava Maria and went to B.B. King and finally Polka, poor Laura is still shaking her head at his musical sequaying - lol. So he cooperated and she got a few good sound bites to either loop for background sound or just use for sampling in the final production.
And Rog, you were mentioned in the taping process when we were talking about swarming, so keep an ear our for any 15 seconds of fame that may follow - lol.
Laura has also visited the forum and website frequently over the last few weeks and is VERY IMPRESSED with the gentleness of this forum, she even pointed out that it is RARE to find a group of people who are so cooperative and non-combative as this. It was really great to hear such kind words from someone (city folk as my Mom would call her - lol) enjoyed visiting with our members and to see how helpful everyone is.
More later :)
