Since I started off the day with a post on food I thought I would continue that theme just a little bit longer. Did you know that the honey bees are dying and that this is a real problem since about 30% of our food is dependent on honey bee pollination. Thanks Nem for alerting me to the problem (read here for what she said). Since reading Nem's post I have been hearing about the plight of the bees everywhere. First on KSL radio, then in 2 seperate magazines, and lastly at this website: http://www.helpthehoneybees.com/ (although I went there knowing I would be hearing about the problem). So here is what I have resolved to do to help:
- Plant sunflowers
- Buy some local honey
- Buy some Häagen-Dazs icecream because they are funding some research to help save the honey bees--plus icecream is good.
