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."

An average of 8lb (3.6kg) of honey was produced per hive this year, that's crazy.

Can't imagine feeding in mid summer to keep them from starving.

A phenomenpm which ruled again in Europe was Russian high pressure.
In ghe year 2011 it covered Finland and we got in eastern part a hige yield.
One of my hive goit 200 kg, and this year in same place about 30 kg.

So, the high pressure covers a  ceratin area and on edges there are ciold and abundant rains.

Britain got 2011 and 2012 those rains. In south like Romania and so, 2011 there were floods too.

In Finland in outh aeast part weathers were  quite good but days temps did not rise much over 20C.

In Britain 15C was "good temp" last summer and some beekeepers hoped that they queens can mate in 10C temp and they forage in rain.


What I learned that bees are not able to forage in 18C. It they fly much but they return with empty belly to the hive. Espicially wind cools the bees' flying muscles . Muscles' temp is 39C.


The hive on balance autum canola

One week was about 15-18C and sunny. The hive brought more weight 3 kg in a week.
Then temp rised to 23C and the give got 5,3 kg more weigh in one day.

Record temperatures and forest fires in Russia
 
By Clara Weiss
15 August 2012
 
Broad swathes of forest and dried-up bog land have been burning fiercely in large parts of Siberia since the beginning of June. The fires are raging out of control due to the region’s decrepit infrastructure. The fires were caused by the hottest summer in Siberia since the beginning of weather records 170 years ago. Temperatures have averaged around 34 degrees Celsius (93 degrees Fahrenheit) for weeks and are expected to remain high in the coming period.
