Bee Kind

Sunday night I was watching tv and 60 Minutes came on, the aussie version. I tend to steer clear of the News/Current Affairs kind of programs as I get too upset - I was almost banned from TV as a child for getting so distressed Frosty Melted.

Anyway now that mum is back from her international tour *giggles* I was stuck. There was a story on Bee's of all things, and watching it I was in awe of the devastation that is effecting our world, yes the whole world.

You can see the story HERE . I was amazed, I mean when we see Bee's we think OUCH, and run, or worse if our homes have a hive we get it destroyed.

I've been so guilty of never thinking about the beauty that Bee's are responsible, that hive that is a nuisance is what is responsible for all the beautiful plants that grow in and around our homes and parks. But now from watching this report I see so much more than that.

What upset me more was that this incredible man Dr Anderson is fighting this plight alone, or so the story seems to suggest, and that makes me sad, sadder than I was already about this situation. To me something that effects the world to this magnitude in my mind should be shared, he shouldn't be underfunded, he shouldn't be fighting it alone. Where are all the Professors and Scientists from other countries? why isnt some of the money being spent on all those bee's that have to be transported all over the world from Australia, forwarded to his research ?.

Anyway thats just a rant , but next time you see a Bee, and even if allergic, please don't kill it, because right now those poor little things have it hard enough. If you do have a hive in your house and its causing trouble, find some way to have it removed and relocated maybe , that seems like a way better alternative.

This infestation has been going on for years and now its gone too far, so appreciate your surroundings and know that if it wasnt for Bee's we would not only lose so much in the way of food but also the beauty they provide to our world.

My Posestand is by VR and available on OnRez HERE!, not only does it have hide/show, but also has 3 options for changing poses, lights built in you command on/off in chat, and it rezzes a prim sphere around you that allows you to turn your camera 360 degrees and take pics without moving your stand, the sphere also changes colour on chat command too, its brilliant!.

Thanks for having compassion for the little bees!

My husband Van is a brewer of mead, which is wine made from honey, so he's always had an appreciation for them and it's worn off on me.

Cute bee costume too. :)
