Celebrations !



Yay ! Exams are over ....at least for now...

Fresh strawberries can be great buddies when it comes to celebrating at home..

A couple of them tossed in with a cup of sweetened youghurt, handful of ice cubes and some sugar in the blender for one minute does the trick.

I was planning to post a pic of my smoothie...but it did a vanishing act as soon as it was poured in to the glass :D

Bee Wise



According to the theory of aerodynamics and as may be readily demonstrated by laboratory tests and wind tunnel experiments, the bumble bee is unable to fly.

This is because the size, weight and shape of his body in relation to the total wing spread makes flying impossible.

But the bumble bee being ignorant of these profound scientific truths, goes ahead and flies anyway…..
And manages to make a little honey everyday!

(Moghadam 1988)




I came across this in some text I was studying recently...It was simple but still had a very powerful and uplifting message beneath.

Moral of the story (my version); DO NOT attempt to educate bumble bees cos that would make them as flightless as the earth worm.

Thousand apologies for the unrelated pic ! (or should I rather say that the bumble bee left with it's Honey while I was focusing on the flower).
Thought of putting a post before I was dumped in the "dead and gone" category :)
