Years ago, in 1984, Stamets had noticed a 'continuous convoy of bees' traveling from a patch of mushrooms he was growing and his beehives. The bees actually moved wood chips to access his mushroom's mycelium, the branching fibers of fungus that look like cobwebs. 'I

There are ten thousand varieties of bees, only three of them produce honey, and only one produces enough to share. A bee person told me that. What I know about species that are pure is that one illness can kill them all. This is a fascinating article.


Once I heard a story about an Indian man who was condemned to starve to death and imprisoned with nothing but water given to him. He was however allowed a daily visit from his wife, who had coated her body with honey which he licked off in their private visits. When after months he didn't die, they simply let him go.

Great story I guess, depending on his crime! But the fact is, I pretty much live on honey and consequently the fate of the bees hits home with me; and I hear they're in great trouble. So are we, if we ignore their plight.
