But they provide an enormously important role in our lives. What would happen to humanity without our little pollenators? Unfortunately, they are being killed off in the millions by nicotine based pesticides. You are fortunate that you still have honeybees where you reside. Here in America, we have organized groups doing everything possible to save our honeybees from extinction. To do what we can to support the bees! We too are concerned about their plight! My late husband was a tall, strong man. Love your bee -adventure!
People have enjoyed it with both. That said, the amount of flour in the recipe is small compared to the amount of Bechamel… But I would be eager to experiment with the recipe and to hear about your results… The sauce got rave reviews used in this recipe:. Heat the oil in a large iron skillet over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and cook until it just begins to color.
Add the greens, the rosemary, and thyme to the pan, and let cook a couple of more minutes while stirring until the greens are wilted. Stir the Bechamel sauce into the greens. Add salt and pepper. Bake at degrees F for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the top is just beginning to brown.
Dear Robin, chased by a bee? At first glance it seems very funny but a bee sting can become a very serious matter. A teenager my soulmate was stung by a bee on the nose. He landed in hospital. And very unfortunately developed an allergy to bees that lasted for many years. Until coffin… When I was a young girl one day I was walking across a meadow in Silesia, A bee got under my skirt.
I feel so sorry for the bees. They die after the attack. The best home remedy against a bee sting is to rub the injured place with a cut raw onion after the actual sting is removed. Robin and Meredith, you are very fortunate to be able to help your bees. Here they are almost exinct. Most probably due to the toxic sprays used by market gardeners.
Yes, Linda, one cannot imagine our world without the bees…. The onion trick is well worth knowing, thank you Odette. The tomato patch is adjacent to the hive so..! I am thankful not only for not being stung but that my bee lived to work another day! I thought honey bees were supposed to be docile…? There is it seems a pest that gets into the hive and attacks the bees in there, they try to rid themsevles of the pest by cleaning the hive and themselves.
I know they can be a bit pesky but worth it really. I can remember my mum being stung by a wasp right under her wedding ring while she was hanging out washing,her finger was a terrible mess for weeks,so please be careful both of you. Cast your mind back to when Drake Carne put toads into the pond at Trenwith to amuse Geofrrey Charles. I believe you had a rescue role in it?! But West Country dialect for a toad is all together different thing in Urban dictionary.
I apologize for interfering in that lovely conversation you had with Robin Ellis. I can not delete it afterward it is posted. I cooked with olive oil, garlic,red pepper and few basil: I know how hard is this work…, but to sweet ;. I was thinking of the books — had forgotton all about replacement of Trenwith with Penrice in the TV series — sorry.
Hi Robin, I walked into a swarm of bees when I was 7 years old…on purpose!! I was a very active and hard headed child. I thought I would be brave and so no bee would bother me. My grand mother was smoking out her bee hives. She had told me to stay in the house. After several stings I ran screaming into the house a long run to the house!! Not much sympathy from the adults!!
Learning the hard way! A little like me the other day though I escaped serious attention by the bee community. Follow the link from this post and you will see we have written about you and posted a link.

But by now time has become a clear illusion, with both Oqmar's Paleolithic world and Blake's 21st Century being more or less concurrent as they watch the same spheres rise from the Earth. The most interesting thing about Exit, Pursued by a Bee , is not the myriad unanswered questions it raises about the spheres, or whether Kallandra was meant to be with Claude or Derek, or even whether Kallandra saves the world or not.
By undermining, in the most quantum of ways, the way we perceive the notion of time, it raises the whole question about what life is and who we are. When time is no longer the backbone of our lives, and everything we perceive about ourselves disappears, those sensations remain.
Nelder has created a novel that will both satisfy readers at a deep level, and at the same time raise unsettling questions about the very fabric of who we are.
