Random Discovery of the Day: Observation

So, my car has started making a terrible death whinny of a squealing noise, which means I’m not driving it this week. (Cheaper to fix things that aren’t quite broken yet, and all.) I decided to walk to pick up dinner for the darling wife and I. A bit brisk, but still nice. Despite having […]

I don’t recall having seen honeybees out this early […]
