Here's a bee for your bonnet


Just 
had a
memory 
of one of 
the most 
scary
times of
my life.



I had a hotel in N.C. and the handi man came to me that spring morning to say I had to help him there was a problem in the pump room. I had a huge concrete water tank, the well was at the bottom of the mountain and pumped the water up into the tank. We had to empty it every spring and scrub it out with Clorox. It was 12 feet deep. Well some Honey bees had made their home inside the pump room. He said I would have to help him get the bees out. Time was of the essence, so he told me to tie my pant legs, button the cuffs of my shirt, put a hat with a net on and off we went. I walked into the room and bees started to cover my arms, I started screaming. HUGH the handyman said don't get nervous, you'll upset the bees, they know you smoke, they know you are afraid of them,they know you may harm them. By that time I said ;SHUT UP AND GET THE DAMN THINGS OFF ME.
He started to scrape them off very gently. then said I was stepping on them and will make them mad, needless to say I wet my pants. Just a message to you all. DON"T TRY IT.








At least I had a hat with a net, they were this thick on my arms, what a scare.























The bee keepers
are very worried
for the loss of bees
last year. Wonder
what's going on
the bees are leaving.
Maybe the ice age is coming..

I asked what do 
they live on
in the winter,
the honey we
steal from them, 
and you wonder why
they are dying off.




What to do for a bee sting, 
take out the stinger a tiny black dot,
wash with soap and water.
Apply a paste of water and
baking soda. Apply ice wrapped
in a towel, it lasts for a few days
and
if you start to swell up go to the hospital.
Many people die from bee and wasp stings.

DROP MYLAN EPI STOCK

Mylan drug has raised the price
of Epi pins to $600.00 or more.
 These children
Need these or can DIE


Doctors and patients say the
 Mylan pharmaceutical company 
has jacked up the prices for an EpiPen 
-- the portable device that can stop a
 potentially life-threatening allergic reaction -
- from around $100 in 2008 to $600 and up today.
How could anyone invest in a company like this.
I would get out of that stock, ugh!!


They are *#@&%$ money grubbing Bastards.
I hate this GREED. What has happened to the world?
Most people can't afford this. How inhumane of these Drug companies.
The Govt. should fine them. It's a form of extortion. Where's the Justice?



Heather Bresch, now Mylan’s
 chief executive officer,
 hit on the idea of using
old-fashioned marketing in
 part to boost sales among concerned parents of children
 with allergies. That started EpiPen, which delivers about
 $1 worth of the hormone epinephrine, on a run that’s resulted
 in its becoming a $1 billion-a-year product that clobbers
 its rivals and provides about 40 percent of Mylan’s operating profits, 
says researcher ABR|Healthco. EpiPen
 margins were 55 percent in 2014, up from 9 percent in 2008,
 ABR|Healthco estimates. It's off the charts. They are Greedy 
and don't give a damn about US citizens. The Govt, has to stop
them from this outrageous charging.

There’s Absolutely No Reason Why an EpiPen Should Cost $600
