Flight Grounded By Bees

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/e...et/6691851.stm

A flight from Bournemouth, England, to Faro, Portugal, was grounded after it flew through a giant swarm of bees, damaging the engine.

Two days ago 20,000 bees, presumably the same ones, descended on Bournemouth Pier.

It's the constant buzzing. Drives them mad.

<< What in the world is going on with the bees. >>

Ummm... I would hate to try to answer a bee who asked me "what in the world is going on with the humans?"

The humans, as has been true for centuries, seem to have quite a reputation for much weirder stuff.



Best wishes,

Rex

The bees in the US are not disabeering. They have merely flown to Bournemouth for summer hols.

First it was The Birds... Then it was The Bees... and that's how we got The Birds and the Bees.
