Good lookin' spaghetti dishes, Med and Roch. CG....I'm stuffed full of scallops and asparagus, but your chicken soup looks so good that I could go for a cup of that for dessert.

Whether bees are "tame" or not depends on the species and how they have been treated - they're not livestock. Setting up a hive is not as simple as you seem to think. But an experienced beekeeper can capture a swarm and get them into a hive.

We went for Mexican on Taco Tuesday - I would *love* to have a taco truck on every corner!

So, with an extra chicken breast I cooked the other night, I made shredded chicken with salsa, etc., and served it with rice and chopped poblano peppers from the garden.

I don't know anything about bees. I just want them out of my house.

I love nature. I'm a bit of a "tree hugger." I get along just fine with all kinds of animals... as long as they stay out of my house!!!

Those bees may be totally "tame," but I don't want to "coexist" with them in my house.

Now, back on topic, what are the winners and losers of the dinner election? My BBQ sandwich was a winner. It was a brisket sandwich, and I got to choose what part of the brisket I wanted, which was the point (AKA, moist end).

They gave me sauce for it, but good brisket "don't need no sauce."

So, today started at Waffle House (good), followed by a crappy drive home in a rental car (bad), followed by the arrival home to a house full of bees (very bad), and ended with some righteous BBQ in a pretty nice hotel (good).

The hotel cost too much, but everything in my zip-code costs too much.

I sure wasn't suggesting that you let them move in with you! I like our bees, but we gave them a great place to live - outside in the yard.

I’m one of those with an irrational fear of bees. A phobia. It extends to wasps and any other insect that flies like a tiny drone. It’s not because they sting; I’ve been stung a couple times by bees, and a couple of times by yellow jackets. It hurts, but not much.

It’s the way they fly. With their legs hanging down, and slow. It’s just evil.

I know you weren't suggesting I let them move in... although I have a suspicion from some of our past interactions that you wouldn't mind if I got stung a few times.
