I have noticed many bees at our humming bird feeders this summer, compared to other years, so I believe the rain have had something to do with washing the pollen off the floweres etc, however as far as killing all the bees with chemicals, we have come a long way to make our food supply and chemicals used safer, and I have a hard time with all the tree huggeres that want to do away with everyting. Wait until you see the price of an apple if all insectides are banished. Look what happened when they outlawed the mosquito killer, malaria deaths skyrocketed. Just need some common sense, oh wait that went bye bye when : pick a year since 1974!

You are right it is ridiculous to worry about the environment!*****we will be dead long before the Earth is ruined by our wasteful practices. Let the next generations worry about it. Real scientists say that we are destroying our eco system and if you can't see that then you have some serious eye problems.

Attention all "Do-Gooders": It is imperative that you call Al Gore, the "pretend Scientist". He must know we are facing a threat due to global warming. Then, of course, blame George Bush.
