it makes some sense.  i was sure it was going to be a global warming article  grin   evil

.....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.....

has anyone studied beeks that had CCD and how they run their operations.  Maybe it should be call  mono disease.  You know. mono culture.  Kind of like scurvy. 

I dont think its the cause but I think mono culture is bad for be health.

It makes sense. Not only would they get whatever "goodies" are to be had in diverse plants, but they wouldn't get as loaded down with possible toxins or just junky stuff in a very small variety of plants.

The pedigree of honey
Does not concern the bee;
A clover, any time, to him
Is aristocracy.
---Emily Dickinson
