But that's actually informative Finski!  Cool!  !

Somebody wrote about "simple" things.Only to be and breath is very complex in creature.

When I first time heard about mitochondria in University, it made me felt fizzy. They are energy units in living creatures, where sugar will be splitted to energy + CO2 + H2O

Wikipedia: A recent study[58] by researchers of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa and the Oregon State University, indicates that the SAR11 clade of bacteria shares a relatively recent common ancestor with the mitochondria existing in most eukaryotic cells.

What I have been doing for open feeding of dry pollen sub is.  I use a 6 inch piece of 4 inch pvc pipe.  On one end I have an end cap and the other end is a down spout.  I secure the caps to the pipe to keep it water tight and then paint them.  The down spout converts the round hole into a small square, I like to run some sand paper on the inside just to give the girls something to grip.  I then hang this in a tree and keep the opening pointed down to keep the wind and water out of it.  It has worked fantasticly for me the past few months untill we started getting real pollen here.  Now the girls are no where near them but I am sure when it dries up here they will return to them.

Any chance of posting a picture. I cannot picture it.
