So the 911 dispatch operator calls to say there are bees at such and such location stinging everyone in sight.

Followed by a call from one of the business owners at this location who says bees are not stinging anyone.

Bees were nice and gentle, about 4 lbs or so worth.

.....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.....

Those are nice we finally have some tulips that started blooming.  I kind of hope it stays cool until my bees get here so they have something to gather.
