Helped a friend with his bees
« on: May 13, 2011, 05:55:12 PM »
I didn't have any gear and the only place they would sting me is on my head. The guy in the bee suit is my friend Bruce.

Irwin, I feel your pain
I was hit 7 times on the head a week ago. There is something about being stung on the face, it just hurst like mad.  The two stings in my lip made me think my lip was going to explode from the swelling and my right eye was darn near swollen shut.

OUCH!!!

Scott
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Every time I get stung in the face I feel as dumb as I look.

what happened to your gear??
.....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.....

My guess is that they re-queened themselves.
