OK, bottomless hives, investigation time.  Beesource.com.  Awesome day.  Cindi

Keep in mind that Charles is in California.  Finsky is in Finland.  I'll keep bottoms on mine too.  :)  I don't think Charles has ever seen -40 F with 60 mph winds.  I have had bees in that weather on at least two occasions and -20 F with 60 mph gusts on many more.

It depends on what level you are talking  :-D

If you look closer at history, inventors have had really hardworking. They are clever but not lazy!

Finsky, I should forward the Finnish folk song to my sister-in-law law.  I have told you that she is Finnish.  You said that there may be bad language, but that is OK, I love that stuff.  She will decipher the words, word for word for me.  She has a tendancy to swear alot and I can bet she will give me all the words to the song (LOL) and we will laugh together.  Best of days.  Cindi

People are dansing polka and old mom cannot sleep in another room.
She probably regrets on noice and the answer is in one verse

Direct translations from old finnish song's verse:

To mom I say that shut up your mouth
I will not quarantee you heltness
You will allrigth if you gather you bones
and go to your room and take a sleep

Tenderness shall not bother this boy
when I dance with girls back and fro

this song sounded soooooooooooooo familiar to me. and i had a real hard time crackin this case, that's when it hit me! you know those mobile melodies and stuff they enforce...well, there was this "holly-dooly" and she was singing this jibber jabber:) only now i see, it's a finnish song. just type, holly dolly in the youtube.
other than that, i don't pay much attention to those mobile melodies and animations! hate the darn commercials!

Someone please tell me how this post when from queens and swarms to folk music and spiders?

Do people on here really lack that much focus?

I don't know, maybe someday you'll search the forums and try to find some information on here yourselves and have to read through 6 pages of unnecessary and off topic fluff and then maybe you'll understand why it's important to start a new thread when you have new topics of thought.

Jeff, come on.  It happens, don't get all cranky about it.  I agree with what you are saying, but you have to understand, we are only people and sometimes get caught up a little bit in extra conversation, it just happens, ____ happens, you know that.

Anyways, it is a good reminder to try and keep things a little bit cleaner with regard to posts getting too off topic, this has been brought up a few times on the forum.  But remember, it is hard to do.

Oops, this is in the wrong forum, maybe it will get moved to the Chat Room.  Anyways, Jeff, it is OK, things will be all right.  Best of the best of the days. Cindi
