Re: Bees

There are a fair number of honey bees, as well as many other insect  
pollinators this year in my area.
On Greenland -- it got that name for a reason -- it was that way when  
the vikings settled there a thousand years ago. They were even able  
to grow crops there then. Then they experienced "climate change" and  
had to leave.
