Think about the Bees
In case you didn’t know one of my more guilty pleasures is listening to National radio. I was pained to learn during the panel last week of the plight of the common bee. Wild bees are facing an uncertain future given the spread of parasites and other environmental dangers. It is estimated that if bees were to die out human life would follow 5 years later. The next time you sit down for dinner take a good look at everything that is not meat or grain. If it has a colour chances are bees are responsible for its growth at some point. Some more food for thought. Money is a human invention. Bees are not.
