"During the last three months of 2006, we began to receive reports from commercial beekeepers of an alarming number of honey bee colonies dying in the eastern United States," says Maryann Frazier, apiculture extension associate in Penn State's College of Agricultural Sciences. "Since the beginning of the year, beekeepers from all over the country have been reporting unprecedented losses."

I'll be going back to my Doctor (urologist) the 7th. I am trying to clean the underbrush around my home as I live in the woods. I haven't been physically able to clean up outside for awhile, but this year so far is different. Thank God. The weather is so crazy. It was so warm today it reached 80. I love it here in WV, all you see is mountains. If there is a flat place, and if someone knew, their would be a mountain there tomorrow. Hee, hee.

Me and my sweetie pie will be exploring Texas together in a few weeks!

John: I am going to be invited to a wedding in Hawaii in November. The groom is stationed at Pearl Harbor and the bride livis in Honolulu. She grew up in PA. Talk about a destination wedding. I can't attend, because cost is prohibitive, and it is during the school year for me, besides, it is a second marriage for the groom, and I attended his first wedding.

NC weather is nice, but here in the Charlotte area is so boring to me. I can't see over the trees. Everything is flat on the Piedmont. I have an impossible dream. I would like to live in Hawaii. I was there for a weeks R&R in the Army and I never forgot it. I know it's very expensive there, and I am not rich. Impossible?
---John on 4/25/07




Madison1101,
Yes we have some bitter weater here at times, it's warming up nicely now. The trees are starting to bud, the flowers havetried to bloom at least two times, I guess they can stay out now:)
I still have a light coat on though because the nights are not yet stable.
After the baby comes, your daughter will be able to go outside walk through the grass, look down at her feet and wiggle her toes hello with no problem, ha ha ha.
Now that's a good summer feeling:)

RebeccaD: I loved that joke. It was so cute. Out of the mouths of babes... LOL
---Madison1101 on 4/24/07


Madison; here is a joke to tell you daughter. A mother and daughter were walking one day. the daughter picked up something and started to put it in her mouth. The mother said, don't put that in your mouth, you don't know where it's been. The daughter said how do you know this stuff mommy? The mommy said you have to know these things because it is on the mommy test. All was silent then the daugther said, Oh I get it if you don't pass the test, you get to be the daddy. the mom smiled and said that's right.
---Rebecca_D on 4/24/07


Well sister Madison, if I knew the veggies wouldn't get squished upon delivery, I'd send you some when mine are ready to be picked. Every summer something happens to me that I'm not able to work out in the garden. Every year so far in the summer months, I've had surgery. I'm tired of being cut on, and recovering. But one day it will all end, and I will never see any tools near my body. Hope all goes well with your daughter and child.
---Rebecca_D on 4/24/07


Rebecca: My daughter usually has a huge garden, but she is having a baby in June,and won't be able to tend to it, so they aren't going to have one. They usually grow enough tomatoes to can for a year. I live in an apartment, so I have to go to the farm stands to get my goodies in the summer. I can't wait for a tomato sandwich. Yummy.
---Madison1101 on 4/24/07




Lynet: My daughter is always telling me about the snow and cold she experiences in Michigan. Boy, I wish she were closer right now with the baby due in a couple of months.
---Madison1101 on 4/24/07


I've been in and out of 2 hospitals this month, it isn't funny. I can't wait until I get better and be able to go outside and work on my flower garden. And my veggie garden with my father-n-law. He already bought 100 lbs (I think) of potatoes. but regardless what I go through with in life, it will always be a beautiful day.
---Rebecca_D on 4/22/07


Thanks John,
My friends from warmer states always send their weather reports. I've been in Michigan all my life, but who know's. I may yet leave and go to a warmer State, it sounds good anyway!
---lynet on 4/21/07


I just spent a wonderful Saturday in New York City with my son, his fiancee and her parents. My future daughter-in-law was in a show at a jazz club. What a wonderful show it was of songs written by women throughout the 20th century. We had so much fun. The weather was glorious, and I am so glad that Spring is finally here.
---Madison1101 on 4/21/07


Lynet, Our neighbors moved from Michigan to here in North Carolina. They moved back to Michigan for a year and then just moved back here again! We were surprised to see them in WalMart. You can tell they are happy to be back. Sometimes you just have to be sure. We definately get an extended summer here. In the 80's next week, and that's around Charlotte.
---John on 4/21/07


My brothers are back home in the icky Northeast;I am with my parents in gorgeous Arizona.I am excited about the "Live" Engelbert Humperdinck Concert Dad & I wait to see tonite. I sure miss my brothers,their wives, and especially my 3 sweet nephews.I guess, we all have to live our Own Lives individually.

Madison, your right, where did everybody go? HeLL00000- hellooooo! Yep, there's an eco here. It's still April, right?
---John on 4/21/07


Hi Madison1101, John, and the others. I'm here in Michigan waiting for the true spring to come in. We have a really lovely couple of days, but I don't count it spring until the weather is consistant day and night.
Last week we had light snow!!! I remember when I was in high school, we wore our short sleeved Easter dresses to church without a sweater. It was hot, the flowers were blooming, and the sun was shining.
Oh well, as long as I've got King Jesus:)
Have a good weekend all.
---lynet on 4/20/07


Hi Madison! How are you girl? I guess some of us have been hibernating. Barbara and Steve are on vacation and will be back in May, but you would think that she would check in once and awhile and shine the light and see us mice scatter. God bless.
---John on 4/20/07


Hey everybody, where are you all? What's happening? The weather here in the Northeast has been vile to say the least. We had that awful Nor'easter earlier this week, and the temps are just not seasonal at all. Where is Spring? I want to buy some flowers to plant in my garden, but I fear the cold weather still.

Barb...Did you forget that Hawaii is a state now? Tee! Hee! There is no law against anyone buying property in Hawaii as long as they have the money. Hawaii is extremely high cost of living. One thing I do miss about living in Vegas is not having to pay state income tax.
---Susie on 4/8/07


Happy Resurrection Day everyone. He is risen. He is risen indeed.

God bless you all.
---Madison1101 on 4/7/07


WOW John, Hawaii is expensive! Also the law used to be that you could not buy property if you were not native, that may have changed.
I liked where I lived in S.C., close to the mountains and the beach. Oregon is much like that, only 'musshier' for several months of the year. Our rainy season is about over now!
Its truly beautiful here, my hang up is being so far from my family.
---NVBarbara on 4/7/07


Betty I have been to Pakistan, in the 80s, I can not tell you of the atrocity that happened when I was there on this blog. But I think Ohio is nice, I was there a couple of times.

I have seen Pictures of Hawaii I must say it does look georgeous. But Susie, I must say I have been thinking alot about checking into Arizona to live, And Laura I think I am going to really fast and pray over this matter like you suggest, thankyou for these most helplful insights.
---Cynthia_1 on 4/6/07


Cynthia 1... I have lived in Europe, Pakistan, California, S. Carolina, V.A.. I've travelled throughout the U.S.A. but I always came back home to Ohio. Flowers in the spring, heat in the summer, colors in the fall and snow in the winter. Just a few hours away from mountains, the Great Lakes, and 12 or so hours from the ocean. Check us out!

Well since it was so beautiful the past couple of weeks, I am cleaning outside my home. I live in the woods, and I'm trying to clean up the underbrush. I bought a few things to put in the garden, with the help from my father-n-law. We have a small snow storm. Tuesday it was in the 70's, Wednesday was in the 50's, Thursday it was in the 40"s. but it is April and it is unpredictable month. I wouldn't want to move out of WV, the mountains are so beautiful.

A whole blog for a Klondike bar? You must really like them. So do I, but a whole blog on them? I don't think so.
---Jim on 4/5/07


Fast and pray, ask God where you should move.
A multitude of opinions may bring you more confusion about what would be best for you.
You've heard God' Voice in the past. He'll tell you.
---Laura on 4/5/07


The weather outside is frightful, but inside it's so delightful. It sounds futile I know, but let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
We've had 80 new inches of snow in the past two weeks. We're in the early stages of a coming Ice Age.
---Raine on 4/5/07


I can see clearly now, the rain is gone.
I can see all obstacles in my way.
All of the dark clouds have reappeared...
it's gonna be a dark, dark, dark icy day.
North America may soon be frozen solid.
The Ice Age is coming.
We may not have much time; we must start using more fossil fuels now.
Let's all go out and get a Hummer. :-]

Cynthia1....Personally, I prefer the high desert, close to the mountains where the air is still clear. Arizona has several areas like that. It is a wonderful, beautiful state to live in.
---Susie on 4/5/07


"April in Paris"...NOT even close! I will however be leaving on the 10th to visit family, I'll be back in May.
How is your Mom Madison? I know you had fun at the baby shower! :-( Wish I had G'children!
---NVBarbara on 4/5/07


I could not recommend this state if you have an average income, and I surely don't have a lot of money, but My hearts desire is to have me and my wife live in Hawaii. I was there on Ohau Hawaii on R&R for a week from Vietnam, and it's the most beautiful place I have ever been to. I like to believe that with God, nothing is impossible. Maybe someone will pray for us, for God to make a way.
---John on 4/5/07


I have lived outside of the United States for about 13 years, but I am planning on moving back, though I have no idea which state, if you could move to any state you wanted, which one would you pick and why? I need input on this issue.

Mark: If the Klondike bar is sugar free, I would probably do just about anything legal, and moral for it. :)
---Madison1101 on 4/4/07


Madison, I know what you mean, but I don't know if it's fun shopping for 4 daughters. I-yi- yi! I just married off one and I'm cleaned out.
---John on 4/4/07


April is a wonderful month. I like it very, very, very much. It is the month that I get a year older (and wiser and better). So, it is my favorite month. One day a few years ago, when I realized that I was closer to 60 than 50, it bothered me (for about 15 minutes). Then I decided to live to be 120, so I am now middle aged. Being over 55 is great, especially at the buffets and other places that give senior discounts. Next year when I turn the big "6--0" I'm going to really celebrate.
---Susie on 4/4/07


Bummer, so the moderator didnt like my "what would you do for a klondike bar?" Blog....SO i'll ask it here
What would you do for a klondike bar??

Honey bees are amazing little animals. In the summer, to keep the Queen cool, all the little worker bees flutter their wings for air conditioning. I find them fascinating creatures. Not everyone has the gift of charming bees.
---Rural_Cafe on 4/4/07


Rural Cafe: I may be allergic to bees, but I never wished them to disappear. This just means our food prices will go up, just like everything else.
---Madison1101 on 4/4/07


Hey everyone, I have had an awesome week visiting with my daughter. She flew in on Saturday for a baby shower we had for her. She is the most beautiful pregnant woman I have ever seen. We had a blast shopping yesterday. Baby girls are so much fun to shop for.
---Madison1101 on 4/4/07


I am concerned for the Honey Bees. Tonight there will be a blurb on the national news.
There are dying and they do not know why.
Without bees, our food production/crops will be in sorry state. It's been happening for years. Some think it's a moth from S.America moving into the hives. It mimics the bees, moves into their hives, then kills the hive.
We need those honey bees for crop survival.

" An alarming die-off of honey bees has beekeepers fighting for commercial survival and crop growers wondering whether bees will be available to pollinate their crops this spring and summer.

Researchers are scrambling to find answers to what's causing an affliction recently named Colony Collapse Disorder, which has decimated commercial beekeeping operations in Pennsylvania and across the country."
