Please Don’t Kill the Bees!

Honey Bees world wide are in decline from something called “colony collapse”. If you see a bee please don’t kill it – even if it is annoying. I know some are allergic, and that may require radical efforts to eliminate them, but if you don’t have to don’t kill them – don’t put up traps and don’t smash them. We need every bee we can get!

A Portion of the Aeneid by Virgil

Greek Sculpture of Nike

High in his hall th’ undaunted monarch stands,
And shakes his scepter, and their rage commands;
Which did he not, their unresisted sway
Would sweep the world before them in their way;
Earth, air, and seas thro’ empty space would roll,
And heav’n would fly before the driving soul.
