    Human Nature It is interesting that BeBee is attracting much attention.I was thinking about why?I know other people have written their reasons - I know one of mine, is I see more pollinating of ideas, and ideas moving from one person to the next that advances...

    #6 @David B. Grinberg "worker bees show admirable teamwork in building their hives" versus, the prevailing "me, me'me" shadow side of human nature presenting itself in much social media. - great observation David. I am feeling increasingly enriched using nature metaphors, it is a constant reminder that we are nature. That has inspired me to remember the great work of Janine Benyus and Biomimicry - I will write a post! Thanks David.

    Kudos for a very buzz-worthy read @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee. In addition to the fundamental beauty of nature exemplified by bees, I would also point out that bees are hard workers (worker bees) and show admirable teamwork and selfless fortitude in building their hives.
    Thus, in a social media environment that is too often self-focused with a "me, me, me" feel, it's great to be part of a social platform that prides itself on more profound and praiseworthy principles. The buzz is growing louder!

    Forever young, indeed, @Pascal Derrien. I always say that age is just a number anyway. I often yearn to go back to the good 'ole days of yore. My best times in that age range occurred during my college days. However, I still keep in touch with a friend from my hometown with whom I grew up and went to high school. If I only knew back then what I know now...he said, waxing nostalgic.

    #20 yeah....Heart, Led Zeppelin, Jethro Tull and Yes were the big concerts that summer in Dallas. I saw the last two...couldn't scrape up the money for the first two. I was 17-18. The "gangs" consisted of hippies and cowboys. It was Texas after all.

    Oh dear, I only got to FNAC in the summers of 1989 and 90, @Pascal Derrien - But I was part of the hip hop crowd. There would always be some folks at the the base of the Tour Montparnasse with boom boxes and I'd drop by in the evenings with my Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Big Daddy Kane and Eric B and Rakim cassette tapes. Now I am lost in nostalgia....

    Man, this is just awesome @Pascal Derrien. There are so many parts and pieces to this that, as I read it, I know we lived a similar youth in ways. Different, sure, I was in rural farm country, you were in an urban center, yet, this resonates. The small band of individuals, the late nights, pooling cash for a twelve box, the music. We grew up at the same time, listened to the same music, had similar hair styles :-), yet at the time, there was an ocean between us. The world has gotten smaller since then. I suspect, had we been in the same area, we may have met much earlier in life. I still run into members of the small crew I hung with back in the day, and to your point, we pick-up right where we left-off, even though, sometimes, we left-off over 20 years ago. We pool a little cash, grab a beer, and share some stories. Forever young indeed, after all age is only a number! I love the post my friend, well done and thanks for the memories! Rock on Brother!

    Youth isn't wasted on the young, as long as you can remember it. I recently attended my 40th high school reunion and it was if time had stood still, except for our physical appearances. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Loved your story here @Pascal Derrien. "No matter what was your background all our dreams, frustrations and appetite for life would converge to his railway station every Saturday." Sometimes I long to meet all my school friends of years ago. Some I've found on FB. Many not. Some easier to meet, others not so. I suppose we all have our lives to live, families to take care of and jobs to look after. Reading this also reminds me that inside all of us, there is a young boy/young girl who just wants to have a bit of fun, make connections and have a good day out. Thanks for posting this.

    #4 i would have shared some pics in this very thread too if I could...wish @Javier 🐝 beBee would build in a functionality to add a pic to responses...just one pic...;) would really help complete the post at times. Or is there such a thing already and am not aware?

    @Pascal Derrien I can honestly say this is the best piece of writing I have seen in a long while. Forgive me if I use wrong wording, but you captured the essence of Paris youth, very Bohemian, very Luc Besson's "Subway" (one of my favourite movies), very "Rebel without a Cause but looking for one...."

    A beautiful reminiscence dear @Pascal Derrien...yes the rock and roll generation will stay forever young;) Hope you reconnect and revisit some of those times again! I walked around a bit - esp Gare de Lést and Gare Du Nord...and took the RER and Metro to La Defense...and kind of oscillated between the Indian Embassy and Ecole Centrale a few times...a couple of years ago. Yes, I did catch sight of teenage groups hanging around...somewhat like you may have done back then...some formidable looking ethnic groups too, in the alleys ;)

    #156 Good question, @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian.

    Two ideas...

    1) It is really the principal of private vs. public conversations that I was protecting. It's not just secrets that are best kept private. It's also applicable where you just want to speak frankly (franchement, pun intended) without an audience. An example of the way that I sometimes contact people privately (and like a few people have done so for me) with proofreading and editing suggestions. That's no great secret, but it's nobody else's business whether or not I want to offer suggestions, or whether someone else wants to receive them.

    2) Some people assume that speaking or writing in multiple languages is a way of showing off, so I hesitate to do so. Especially with French, which has it's own reputation for exceptionalism. Now when I use my broken Spanish, on the other hand, doesn't feel like showing off, because I speak Spanish so poorly!

    14/08/2016 #156 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #155 Why? It's not like we were discussing deep dark secrets. Now, on some other platform, that shall remain unnamed, we might catch flack, but not here.

    I realized this morning that in my fatigue, last night, I actually continued our ongoing private (français/quebecois) conversation in public @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian! I deleted the public comment and moved it to the private conversation.

    14/08/2016 #154 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #152 LOL, I live in Québec and your written French is better than mine, @Charles David Upchurch. Of course, Larousse said our French is but a dialect. Websters said the same about our English.

    Languages are alive. They evolve, they grow. I seem to remember reading somewhere that the King of England, when he first saw Westminster (I think), called it "Pompous, superficial, and artificial." Those words used to be compliments. Even today, things are in flux. It's good to be "The Shit." It's bad to be "shit."

    @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian Hopefully these things will help restore the truly one of a kind beBee to the crystal clarity, unlike anything I've experienced before on a Social Networking Platform. The Constuct of beBee is so innovative an unique; we must keep it that way. I would like to share this again for the benefit of "new (and not so new) bees" alike. Thank you for the commitment and unceasing engagement of @Javier 🐝 beBee @Juan Imaz, @Federico 🐝 Álvarez San Martín @John White, MBA, @Jim Murray, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, @David B.

    À l'époque, le français êtait de plus chauviniste que c'est probable, aujourd'hui. Peut-être que ça a changé, depuis?

    Hospitality is not just a custom, it is a living-breathing organism there. I know that every country boasts of it’s warm welcome for guests, but in beBee, the guest is “God-sent” and is treated as such. Hospitality is extended to strangers, it is boundless and it is unconditional.#141
    Gerald Hecht
    12/08/2016 #143 Gerald Hecht
    @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian Yes! This really is the place to start --I can still remember finding your guides (lifeboats), prior to which I felt like the only bee on earth; I think one of the first sentences was something like: "So, what will you see (or who will be following you) when you have completed and submitted your profile? Nothing. Here's Why"... I never "met" a user guide with that kind of magnetic draw; how could anyone NOT continue reading??? 💥🎤⬇️ ;-) AWESOME! #142

    #140 @mohammed khalaf Very wise counsel. If I may add the mere thought of guests as objects with which one can manipulate in some way is a gross misperception of humanity --ultimately one with such a belief will see that we are only "doing things to ourselves". 🎭

    Just as awkward as running to one's ride from the train station and suddenly find a startled stranger looking at you. "Wrong car! Sorry" is all I can say, but it is still like invading someone else's space. As a stranger I would jump to Purnima's table any day of the year - for the one thing we sure know how to do, is have a mighty laugh. Those that laugh together don't have to eat together.

    #25 Hi @ptharso castro, we all have our own belief system and there is nothing wrong with that- I think we can all learn from others even if their belief system is different than ours. I enjoyed your slideshow and I would suggest that others click on your link if they are evolutionists, a lot of great/interesting info there. Thanks for your comment!

    #24 Hi @Javier 🐝 beBee, you're so correct, we do only have one life and you reminded me of a very good point- Do what makes you happy and respect others. Respecting others and even doing things to make others happy makes me feel very happy. Another great lesson my mom taught us, unconditional love. I'm very proud to say I grew up in a family that stressed the importance of caring about others as much as we care for ourselves. Thanks so much for your comment!

We do have a lot to be thankful for and forever grateful for. I love the poem you posted by Mary Frye, just beautiful- thank you!!

    Nice words @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher. Enjoy life as it comes. Enjoy your family. Enjoy every moment. It is so sad when somebody we love goes out from this world !! We suffer because we are use to their presence. I think only thing we can do is just caring our families and people we love, and just enjoy every second of our lifes.

    You have obviously touched a lot of people @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher with this beautifully written post, which raises more questions than answers. I can't provide you with solutions or any remedy for your troubled thoughts, but I suggest that you might want to take comfort in the fact that your family all had a chance to make their peace with your mum, and that she went quietly with you all beside her. That is much more than many of us will have when our time comes. I will, however, leave you with this touching poem by Mary Frye.
    "Do not stand at my grave and weep;
    I am not there. I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow.
    I am the diamond glints on snow.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry;
    I am not there, I did not die." 🕊

    Life is about sharing and is based on this concept to be worthy. Sharing changes in form. It goes from mother-baby form: one giving to one taking to become both give and take. Somebody continue to live in the form (habit) of taking, but not sharing. @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher- I love this post

    Are we getting captivated with more ‘likes’ and living with idle fancies and getting dragged in annoying lifestyles? Oftentimes, the drift of social media and users’ attitudes are so typical that it seems users are living to their hallucinations and whimsical narrations in a virtual world.

    Verily, social media is the fulcrum in building relationships in today’s world! Though, it's easy to use 'social media' for diverse purposes, but, when it is used in a wrong manner, then the outcome may be sheer 'social mayhem', and with the clutter effect of unplanned activities and postings, it's just waste of time.

    Getting hooked up on the social media has to be appropriate, inspiring, meaningful and productive. Without these ingredients, making sheer exposures through vain content and impressive pictures is waste of time and energy. :)

    @Paul Walters, you are a hard man, indeed, no doubt emotionally stunted by uncontrolled intellectual development. A definite handicap in this age of social media. However, your words pass beyond the pale, when you denigrate the "banal picture[s] of their pet sleeping in a bucket." For such denigration is just plain mean, not to mention that when it comes to indications of evolutionary level on social media, the photos to which you refer stand as the Enlightenment does to the works of Piltdown Man. (Waiting to see how many recognize the irony of this last remark.) Nevertheless, a good piece, with both an undercurrent of insight and one of humor. Cheers!

    Appreciate others as you wish to be appreciated - and do so with sincerity. Interesting article, Paul Walters and also thought-provoking. It would be interesting to have a study done on the subject of the why's of "likes" and comments, especially in the case of the Malaysian Airlines tragedy.

    I believe your experiences have taught you well because you own them. Your article reflects you're in control - "I believe I can master it as I have mastered many skills in my life." You will be noticed because you are noticed now, as a good writer. Good luck in your journey. and as @Kevin Pashuk stated "Work will come to the diligent".

    I feel like I'm eavesdropping on your self reflections @Phillip Hubbell. I fully agree that one gets pigeonholed into a category... "Hey the projector doesn't work! Call Kevin!" even though you have many other facets. I see you as a writer who does other things rather than someone who does things and writes on the side. I'm an avid photographer and musician, but I would starve if that's all I do. You sound very self aware. Keep pressing on my friend. Work will come to the diligent.

    Very interesting @Phillip Hubbell. Your writing kept me engaged till I finished it. Most of the time we are not identified with our real self. We are know with the cap we wear. Our cap becomes our identity. This is a tragic story in interpersonal relationship.

    I have selected the following thoughtful insight as my favorite buzz for the month. Ten years ago when my father left for his heavenly abode my 'Boss", who never met my father, paid his most touching tribute by saying 'Anees, you are an evidence that your father was a perfect gentleman.' I was speechless and overwhelmed. Thanks Dad for nurturing into me the value and importance of love, respect, courtesy, politeness and empathy in our lives.

    Thanks for sharing, Anees Zaidi. You've helped me fine-tune the concept of this hive by doing it. I'm tempted to follow you example - @Chas Wyatt shared an article about the free-as-in-beer Web, that blew my mind - but I'll hold off until the month's end (though it looks like my winner). So much brilliance is out there, every day...
