  • Many important bills didn’t win approval during 2014 session

    At the start of each legislative session, it is impossible to know which proposals will clear the hurdles it takes for a bill to become law.

    Some are never heard in committee; others may make it through the House or Senate but get lost in the shuffle on the other side.  Some may falter because of cost or a lack of time or public support.

  • Honey bees play role in pollination, plus make honey

    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.

  • A cheeseburger, lunch with Jesus and makeup make for a good day

    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.
