1. We have some wildly wonderful rosemary bushes in front of our house. They recently flowered and there are honey bees everywhere. It's exciting, and charming and absolutely enthralling.
2. With our recent influx of honey bees, I was super excited to hear a story all about bees on Science Friday today. Did you know that bees brains contain over one million neurons packed into a space the size of a tiny pinhead? Bees can display cognitive flexibility and can be taught to play soccer, recognize human faces, and discriminate between letters. The entire story is fascinating. You can listen here.
3. You know you are cool and hang with a cool crowd when at a children's birthday party the big topic of conversation is how much we all love going to bed at 8:30 pm, 8:00 if we are really kicking ass that night. Speaking of, it's almost past my bedtime.
What did you learn today?
