Hope some of you get to see the display.
AND SOME AMAZING FACTS ABOUT BEES (having nothing to do with lace):
The bee population is reduced by 1/3, every year.
Bees only live for 40 days.
In those 40 days a bee only collects 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey.
So it takes 12 bees 40 days to collect one teaspoon of honey.
I can't believe how hard they work in their short lifetime. Bees are so essential for our food production that lots of people are becoming beekeepers these days.
This information came from an episode of Texas Country Reporter that airs here in Austin every Sunday.
AND A VERY WORTHWHILE VIDEO TO WATCH:
Michelle in NYC posted this video on her blog yesterday. Robina Courtin is a Buddhist Nun and is wise and funny and, in this video, talks about how to be your own therapist. I think you will find it enlightening.
It is an hour long but well worth your time. I sat in front of my computer with my stitching and was disappointed when it ended. You might also check out some of Michelle's other postings. You can't help but find something that will interest you.
