In Britain, where the countryside was plagued by bee thefts...

...authorities planned to reintroduce, from New Zealand, the locally extinct shorthaired bumblebee.


Among other things on my future sprawling estate, Hibernian Hollow, I'd like to take up beekeeping. A 'beecharmer' like Idgy Threadgood.

The bottom image is the cover of my favorite childhood book, "The Book Without a Name."

You and Nathaniel could join forces. He'd love to keep bees. If only he wasn't allergic...

I'm allergic too!! That's so funny, they always swarm around me at lunch but NEVER sting...
