We've had a cooler than usual summer this year, but this week Southern California has hit the triple digits and with it, as usual, come the brush fires. There are two in the Angeles National Forest; one north of Azusa and the other near La Canada/Flintridge. One thousand firefighters are out there in 105 degree weather trying to put them out. This morning, the radio announcer said that two firefighters had been injured so far, but not from the fire. They'd been stung by bees.
Here's what I have to say to the bees: Listen; these are fellow creatures trying to help you. If they can, they will save your home and environment as well as ours. Give them a break and bee nice.
