American blood spilled to protect the freedom and peace of people all over the world.  320,000 USA casualties in WWI, 1,076,000 USA casualties in WWII, 128,000 USA casualties in the Korean War, 211,000 casualties in the Vietnam "conflict", 57,000 USA casualties in "War on Terror".  Benghazi, Libya, 13 USA casualties. These figures don't include 70,000 MIA.  But, the leaders of one political party of the United States of America continue to make the statement..."What difference does it make?".

"We can't expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism."..."The press is our chief ideological weapon." - Nikita Khrushchev

JP, that was fun to watch!

If I was there, I could have taken my bare hands and scooped them up for you and placed them inside that box.  :lau: Yea, Right!

Good video! June and I enjoy them.

I shared it on FB.  another great one....and with your phone?
.....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.....

Awesome video JP. After experiencing the exact same thing just recently myself I know how cool it is to be there with them swarming around like that.

Thanks mate.

Late October early November would be the absolute latest unless its an abscond.

JP,
Another great video, You sounded like a kid with his hand in the cookey jar while mom was out of the kitchen. If you listen carefully you can hear your self giggling.

Hey JP, I have not heard of that guy with the link that you posted. He's doing some great stuff. Looks like hes in your area and is foraging some things that I cannot. Hope he inspired you!

Hey JP, As a fellow bearded dude I have a question for you. I see your avatar pic and you have the bee beard thing rockin' . I've always wanted to do that but was thinking that the bees wouldn't be to keen on my facial hair. How do you get them to go on your chest only? Maybe I need a tutorial on how to "Make" a bee beard in general. I've heard about keeping a caged queen on a string around your neck. Is that how you did it? Maybe this needs a new thread.......
