Ashton's Night Life / THE NEW GOING OUT
« on: September 12, 2009, 11:32 AM »
HI  no wonder they say the new going out is staying in , what with local pubs closing cheap booze from the super markets , not that i smoke but no smoking ban , and food home deliveries , not so much on tv but you can pick up a good film to watch , i know that the atmosphere and the pleasure of a break away from the house is not the same , but the home entertainment seems to be catching on , how do they get there entertainment in other parts of the world , i know the aussie go for there BAR B QS  :D

HI   whats happening to the bees  we have flowers out in the garden one time they would be swarming with bees but just the odd one or two the srangest thing happen the other week when a bumble bee flew in the house it was falling over and looked drunk , since then when i have been out and about i have noticed it a few times and my daughter saw at least five bumble bees dead on the way to work the other week , i have started to take more interest in them since i  saw a documentry on tv last week , its a bit scarry what could happen if there were no bees , i know a lot have got this bug but it seems to be world wide apart from australia which are exporting bees , so i know people on this board live far and wide ,so could you please let us know how the bee count in your area is thank you  regards greeny ???
