Elephants are scared of bee-stings, it seems.

I was under the impression that elephant skin was too thick for bee stings to penetrate and therefore cause them any harm/annoyance. Looks like this is a subject that I'll have to investigate further ... I want to know the truth!

Game sharing officially reduced to 2 on PS3. But now you can deactivate accounts using a PC. Thankfully. My question though is if I deactivate all 5 will it only go to 2 for everything then?

Hopefully someone can help me. I'm using Mac OS X 10.6.8 and Chrome 15.0.874.121. I am experiencing a few very annoying & disruptive issues - when I browse any website each & every page takes a few seconds before anything happens. It's like lag when playing on Xbox live, everything's ... 'sticky' & 'jumpy'.

Take this post writing experience right now - my browser locks up every few seconds and I can't type or delete anything. I've tried to search using Google however I'm having no luck.

So, slow, sticky, laggy, jumpy web browsing and frequent lock-ups with pages taking seconds not only to load but also to begin loading. And if I have multiple tabs open each page in those tabs will not begin to load until the first has finished loading.

It's overall very annoying & frustrating.

So, please, any help & suggestions? All most welcome. Thanks.

As if pollinating & honey production weren't enough, it seems that bees can help us in many more ways.

Firs, I know this is a terrible publication. I'm sharing this story because I think that it's fantastic that a positive article like this can be found in a mass media paper.

It is often hailed as a natural, healthy sweetener – but in most cases, honey bought from supermarkets today is simply sugar syrup with no nutritional value at all.

Here's that aquaponics video I mentioned the other day. 1 MILLION pounds of Food on 3 acres. 10,000 fish 500 yards compost.

Obviously, anything I do will be on a smaller scale however the principles are the same - relatively high yield per square metre. Efficient & environmentally-friendly - Vegetables, fish & compost produced.
