Well, I got home from Houston to find a house full of bees, and they voted me OUT!

So, no home cooking tonight, as I will be in a hotel a few miles from the house. There is a BBQ place next door I've been told is pretty good. Maybe I'll check out their ballot... er, menu.

The beekeeper is coming tomorrow to impeach the bees.

YIKES. Are you sure they are bees or do you have wasps? We had an invasion of wasps last year, when we had lots of fruit on the pear and apple trees. They were crazy and they invaded the house. HUNDREDS. We have never even found where they came in the house. We all were stung. This year, less fruit, no wasp problem.

Yes, they are honey bees. I sent a photo to an exterminator, who checked with a beekeeper. They are probably just "scouting" for a place to set up a new hive. The beekeepers should be able to get rid of them, before they actually set up a hive.

Awesome. Well, I would think it would be awesome. You could have set up a hive and had the beekeeper put the bees in. But, really, honey bees are pretty tame and not as irritable as drunk wasps. Good luck though.

Geez, bees? Not fun, cd. Got Garlic and her hubby have beehives. Too bad they don't live close enough to rescue you. A friend of mine had a colony develop in her apartment wall - they had already created a comb and were busy making honey by the time they were removed.

Well, no one is discussing candidates or issues. I guess it's OK to pick on the process.

We had big bowls of warm hugs - also known as homemade chicken soup.

I had pan seared scallops with garlicky lemon butter, and steamed asparagus. No pics because I've posted so many of the same dish before.

Now, back to the news....
