By the rude bridge that arched the flood
Their flag to Aprils breeze unfurled
Here once the embattled farmers stood
And fired the shot heard round the world

Yes, but it's hard to keep the iron hot and you can't tell each individual bee apart. :)

I know I love to go to stores on bad weather days and watch them get confused when the lights go out cause all the registers stop working and the concept of actually doing math is a concept LOL
