    Here goes... my first general Buzz, @Andrew Porter...

    There are some amazing things happening in industry and business right now, that go way beyond greenwashy, sustainability policies. Whether we are business owners and influencers, or 'consumers' and users, we all have a role to play in bringing about the shift Ellen MacArthur talks about here.

    If this video excites you, come and join the Circular Economy* hive I started. Learn more, share stories, get inspired.

    This is very interesting @Andrew Porter, and thank you for writing a post on Teasels. The flowering Teasel is quite pretty and looks more delicate than those without the dainty little blooms. And how fun you can make things with them.

    Measles and weasels give me the queasles
    but, they don't dare come my way
    when I'm armed with my Teasels
    It's going to be a good day!

    "Some may hibernate with amazing gesture
    Nature orchestrate all with a unique mixture

    Beautifully written.

    Dear Ali, I am honored to be on your listing, at the look of so much talent and wisdom here, even if my contribution is so small. Wish I would have made more comments to your last posts, but as you already know, I do not use to make comments unless I did not understand firstly, and meditated about the running issue, and it will take some time for me to be capable to understand them, as your posts are lately out of the bounds of my possibilities.

    Dr. Anani, your post is appreciated profoundly. Most peoples would go online fishing for ideas, rebuff them and post an article under their names. You show in reverse, appreciate great ideas into a pot of gold! Warm Regards.
    This comment was made on G+. I find it very relevant to share here. WE learn and progress by digesting ideas and not by stealing them. I am profoundly grateful to Clarisse as much as I am to everyone of you who helped me move forward. The least I could do is to say thank you and this is the nugget of wisdom that helped me improve.

We planted a lot of wildflowers the past 2 years and don't use only organic pesticides, we also grow vegetables and herbs (like dill, oregano, basil, parsley and more). We use organic on our veggies too. Bee's are vital to our ecosystem just like brown bats which became diseases and we've lost most of them in the NE States. I forget the name of the disease?

    #15 Why thank you Rebecca! Though I would have some stiff competition for Queen on this site. So many brilliant Queens to be found here.

    My nephew is allergic as well. He was stung for the first time while visiting me (about 5 years old). When he suddenly said he wanted to take a nap (he hated naps) and laid down and covered up with a blanket (it was 90 degrees outside) I got suspicious and went over and lifted his shirt. He was covered in welts. It took us all of 10 minutes to rush him to the hospital and he 'slept' until they gave him a shot of adrenaline. He was actually unconscious. He still carries an Epi Pen and this has been many many years.
    Thank you for sharing on FB! We all need to spread the word about Bees and beBee :-)

    Pamela: When my son was seven he decided to bee-come a "bee petter." Unfortunately, while engaged in this pastime, he was stung several times. We discovered he is very allergic to the sting of the honey bee. Consequently, my son now carries an Epi Pen. Nevertheless, we still love and value bees! I loved your very informative, well-written post about the plight of the honey bee! I shared the bee-autiful video on my fb timeline. I nominate you to bee-come beBee's official queen bee!

    @Franci Eugenia Hoffman: I am beset and perplexed to choose whether I like the prose, the trees, or the crunch of the leaves, pumpkins abounding in glee. Astounding piece, historical for beBee...timeless, fractal, emanating the "To beBee and Beyond" synthesis that @Ali Anani sucked out of his writings and the very same atmosphere, too. Beautiful, so beautiful that I shall continue to muse on what I like best, as it is a wonderful, enchanting test. Thank you!

    #27 Yes they are. The tree outside our porch has a continuing pattern which changes with the seasons. With that said, the pattern is present reflecting the change of each season. Does this make any sense?

    #22 I could take a turtle's head out of the lake at 50 yards:) I grew up in the southern tip of the boot called Indiana. Small town called Rockport. About 1000 people. County seat too:) We had 200 acres and raised angus, corn and tobacco. I was a little cowgirl from my first steed at 3 YO. Clementine, a burro. no matter what I did, she sat still. Such a magical way to grow up. Thanks for the memories @Franci Eugenia Hoffman
