A love letter

Aboard Air Force One
March 4, 1983

Dear First Lady
I know tradition has it that on this morning I place Happy Anniversary cards on your breakfast tray. But things are somewhat mixed up. I substituted a gift and delivered it a few weeks ago.
Still this is the day, the day that marks 31 years of such happiness as comes to few men. I told you once that it was like an adolescent's dream of what marriage should be like. That hasn't changed.
You know I love the ranch but these last two days made it plain I only love it when you are there. Come to think of it that?s true of every place and every time. When you aren't there I'm no place, just lost in time and space.
I more than love you, I'm not whole without you. You are life itself to me. When you are gone I'm waiting for you to return so I can start living again.
Happy Anniversary and thank you for 31 wonderful years.
I love you,
Your Grateful Husband.

The importance of honeybees     —-thanks for help of Emily

Anyone who has ever had a garden, an orchard or a farm  knows the importance of honeybees.They fly from flower to flower, gathering nectar to make honey. More importantly, they pollenate crops.As a beekeeper for more than 30 years, I am a big admirer of these little workers. Hearing North Carolina, if we didn't have honeybees, we would lose at least 47 million dollars a year in fielding garden crops. Strawberries,watermelons,corn,squash,beans,all these puts more than 100 other important crops from foods to nuts, couldn't exist without pollination by the honeybee.Indeed, something like 50 percent of wild life food also depends on honeybees.Shortly before spring, my neighbours went to beehives and moved them to their apple orchards.I'm lucky that the bees in my hives consider my apple orchards home.It's amazing when you think about it.Each worker bee will visit hundreds of flowers in a single day.Imagine if we humans had to do that much running around. Over the years, I've noticed that different hives have different personalities.  Some are easy going, with no protective closing on, you can open them any time and watch them work.Other hives are just the opposite. You must be prepared and well protected when you visit them, or you will be stung.
