  • Insects pollinate a large percentage of food crops grown in the United States and all over the world.  Many different species of pollinators exist, but the insect best equipped for this job is the honey bee.

    Honey bees are exceptionally efficient at collecting and transferring pollen among the flowers of a particular crop.  In a practice known as “flower fidelity” groups of foraging bees will visit just one type of flower, collecting and storing pollen in baskets located on their legs.

  • Yesterday when I was buying fish for dinner, Harry the seafood guy looked at me and said, “Today has been a good day.”

    He didn’t say why, and I suppose I should’ve asked him.

    Even so, as I drove home with my two salmon steaks and the solitary fresh, humungously jumbo shrimp with its head still on that Harry tossed in as a freebie, Harry’s words echoed in my thoughts.

    Today has been a good day.
