You can eat honey but you can’t eat money
Have taken up beekeeping again which I last did fifty years ago (actually come to think of it it was 60 surely not). In those days there were no bee suits and we got stung all the time which was one reason I gave it up. But now I’m in despair and outraged at what pesticides are doing to bees. These wonderful creatures with their sophisticated navigation systems and astonishing mathematical abilities and mysterious capacity to make collective decisions and great pollination services to the rest of nature including humankind (for we are part of nature but so at war with nature you wouldn’t think it) are in danger of dying out. We are on a fast track to the destruction both of the earth and ourselves. Why can’t people see it? Go organic. Agitate politically. You can eat honey but you can’t eat money.
