Thank you! I finally understood the diagrams I found in my textbooks. For example, I always wondered how the bees could “see” see the famous dances.

This seems like a really cool study. Learning from God’s creation is a wonderful thing. For example: Airplanes invented from watching bird flight and studying their wings. Any ideas what we can use this information for just yet? I’m interested. On a totally different note I am interested in farming honey. With lending or “loans”: http://personalmoneystore.com/moneyblog/2008/12/01/recession-has-consumers-seeking-solice-in-payday-loans-is-a-great-depression-coming/ down for agriculture as a whole I don’t think I’ll be able to fund up at the moment. Thankfully, somebody is paying attention to these little guys besides me.
