The Bee Dude Came
Actually it was Dan, Dan the Honey Man.
Here's the license plate on his car.
I really thought that all those bees were dead. They were just laying in a big soggy mass after the rain and cold weather.
I poked them around this morning, looking for the queen but I didn't find her.
Once the sun came out in the afternoon, they all revived.
Dan brought a hive and started putting them inside. Once they got a whiff of the honey, they were easy to convince.
He is going to leave the hive here until tomorrow night when all of the bees will have time to find their way home.

Bee Swarm on a Pussy Willow
When I came home, I noticed a lot of bees buzzing around my trees.
I sat in the car and watched them for a while.
First they started swarming on the Honey Locust but then they moved over to the Pussy Willow and onto the ground next to it.
It's raining a little bit and cool so they are just sitting there.
I'm going to call the Animal Control tomorrow to see what to do.
I'm not going to Pay someone to remove it.
I may just have to Nuke it from Orbit.
Just to be sure.

New Chevy 789
I want one.
Sits on a Corvette C6 chassis.
Front styled like a 57 Chevy.
Side like a 58.
Rear like a 59.
Hence the designation "789".
This is built by N2A motors (No Two Alike).
Cost $40,000 over cost of new C6 (MSRP $44,000).
The company is planning a production run of about 100 vehicles.
