Honey Bees



Yesterday, I did something pretty cool. I spent a good chunk of the afternoon watching some honey bees hard at work. My Father-in-law recently took up the hobby of raising his own bees in his backyard and after asking him lots and lots of questions, I suited up and he took me out to see them!

Honey bees are incredible creatures. It's so amazing how they work together and communicate all by instinct. Even though it was crazzzzzy hot in the bee suit, I loved seeing the thousands of bees all buzzing around doing their jobs.

  7. Snowfall here is not only plentiful, it is also dry thanks to the moisture traveling across 100 miles of mountains from the Pacific Ocean to get to Methow. And after the snow arrives, a crystal blue sky almost always follows revealing the incredible scenic mountain panoramas. Located only 2,000 feet above sea level, this 40 mile long xc skiing valley requires no altitude acclimation. (Michael Kors Sofia Bag Black)

It was assumed that there was a spiraling epidemic of sexual assault on campus. Taylor and Johnson note, to the contrary, that sexual assaults of female college students dropped by more than half between 1997 and 2013, and that young women in college are less likely to be assaulted than those who are not in college..

I'm not saying that they were seriously mixing anything up style wise at any time after 1967, for almost each Rolling Stones album can be easily identified as such by style alone. I'm also not saying they didn't change at all, but with the Stones we're talking more continental drift than sparks flying when it comes to non superficial stylistic evolution.

    But he wanted to know what he could do about taking that next step. From an emotional and personal standpoint I think he needed to fulfill his inner self.
