Is it because they is black?

Native British black bees are apparently much more robust than standard domestic bees, may be a part of the solution to the famous Bee Problem:

I am intrigued by this as I've been flirting with the idea of having a few hives, but it seems to be astoundingly hard to keep bees successfully nowadays with all the diseases that are rife.

Where did that cat go...?

Yama Bungle had to go in for his booster vaccs today: I was supposed to take him in at 10, only I was running late and couldn't, so phoned to postpone to 3:30pm. The little bugger was obviously taking notes while I made the call, he's gone into hiding! 

I've just cancelled and booked him in again for 6:45pm. Nobody tell him.

Car again

Nother call from the garage to say they are still waiting for parts.  They hope the parts will come in on Weds and will call again then.

I have Given Up Hoping.
