A cry for the Honey Bees. 
I have heard a few segments about honey bees these past couple weeks on talk radio, and I was surprised to see that CBS will be dedicating a portion of the evening news to discussing the issue about our honey bees that are disappearing. In one segment on NPR.. some scientists and estimating the loss this year to be MASSIVE up to 50% of our honey bees could be gone. 
I am encouraging those who have land, farm, or have a decent sized yard to take up bee keeping. HECK, even cities allow bee keeping, which is very prominent here in Columbus, There are SO MANY classes and resources now a days that it’s silly to NOT consider keepings bees. (Unless you’re deathly allergic)
NOTE: Bee are our major food pollinators… when you see wonky looking pieces of fruits or veggies in odd shapes.. this is because your plants were not pollinated properly. 
Our food supply is in danger without honey bees. 
Bees are SO important. I really cannot stress this! BEEKEEPERS NEED HELP!
THE BEES NEED HELP! Please consider taking up Bee keeping!
