here are some examples.  any computer store will have them.  i like the lightweight, adjustable ones.  they are powered from the computer through the USB port.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Back to the Movie - finally saw it today (I'm another fan of finding stuff on the web when possible - Ted has a cool way of watching, mines a bit more complicated but works great for me :)

I liked the movie, but like Ulee's Gold it had little to do with beekeeping. The message of Queen Latifa is "Bees have their own ways, ones that works for them!"

Man, don't we all - we enjoyed it though, first Movie to stream to my HDTV too :)

I loved the book, but doubt I will ever watch the movie. The cast just could not capture the true flavor of the book even closely imo. I didn't love the book because it was about bees, but because Sue Monk Kidd is an excellent writer. Her only other book was excellent as well (The Mermaid Chair). If she could churn out a book every month, I would buy them. Her style creates better mental and emotional images than almost any other author I have read.
