Bee House

I felt in need of a little DIY project last week, 3 days tied to my desk and not being able to spend time in the garden and the lovely sunshine was enough. So on Thursday evening I set myself the task of build my own little Bee House, I'm sure you've all seen the ones they sell at garden centers...


...very nice but a little on the pricey side, and this time of year all spare pennies must be saved for the boot sales! So as we had a lot of old canes around the place I gave it a go.


I cut the canes up into 10" length with a hacksaw...


Then bundled them together like fire wood and tied them with copper wire...


(that's me concentrating while Rich took pics!)


Then I wrapped some green garden string around the ends to cover the wire up.


I'm really chuffed with the end result! and it cost me the grand total of bugger all, just half an hour of my time!


Ok not quite as smart as a shop brought one but I don't think the bees will care, hopefully this will encourage them away from the other side of the shed where the chicken coop is coming together, apparently them keep crawling into the old nail holes in the wood Rich is using! Cheeky bees!

At last Dumbledore straightened up.
“She’s not dead, Argus,” he said softly.
Lockhart stopped abruptly in the middle of counting the num¬ber of murders he had prevented.
“Not dead?” choked Filch, looking through his fingers at Mrs. Norris. “But why’s she all — all stiff and frozen?”

Harry tried to pull himself together.
“Right, you’ve got a crooked sort of cross …” He consulted Unfogging the Future. “That means you’re going to have ‘trials and suffering’ — sorry about that — but there’s a thing that could be the sun … hang on … that means ‘great happiness’ … so you’re going to suffer but be very happy. …”
“You need your Inner Eye tested, if you ask me,” said Ron, and they both had to stifle their laughs as Professor Trelawney gazed in their direction.

Ron had taken the loss of his rat very hard indeed.
“Come on, Ron, you were always saying how boring Scabbers was,” said Fred bracingly “And he’s been off-color for ages, he was wasting away. It was probably better for him to snuff it quickly — one swallow — he probably didn’t feel a thing.”
“Fred!” said Ginny indignantly.
“All he did was eat and sleep, Ron, you said it yourself,” said George.
“He bit Goyle for us once!” Ron said miserably. “Remember, Harry?”
“Yeah, that’s true,” said Harry.

Most of Locke's recommendations are based on a similar principle of utility.[36] So, for example, he claims that children should be taught to draw because it would be useful to them on their foreign travels (for recording the sites they visit), but poetry and music, he says, are a waste of time. Locke was also at the forefront of the scientific revolution and advocated the teaching of geography

Systems of teaching children through their senses proliferated throughout Europe. In Switzerland, Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi, relying on Locke's theories, developed the concept of the "object lesson." These lessons focused pupils' attention on a particular thing and encouraged them to use all of their senses to explore it and urged them to use precise words to describe it.

“There’s nothing seriously wrong with him,” said Lupin, bend¬ing over Snape and checking his pulse. “You were just a little — overenthusiastic. Still out cold. Er — perhaps it will be best if we don’t revive him until we’re safely back in the castle. We can take him like this. …”
He muttered, “Mobilicorpus.” As though invisible strings were tied to Snape’s wrists, neck, and knees, he was pulled into a stand¬ing position, head still lolling unpleasantly, like a grotesque pup¬pet. He hung a few inches above the ground, his limp feet dangling. Lupin picked up the Invisibility Cloak and tucked it safely into his pocket.
“And two of us should be chained to this,” said Black, nudging Pettigrew with his toe. “Just to make sure.”
“I’ll do it,” said Lupin.
“And me,” said Ron savagely, limping forward.

A paralyzing terror filled Harry so that he couldn’t move or speak. His Patronus flickered and died.
White fog was blinding him. He had to fight … expecto pa¬tronum … he couldn’t see … and in the distance, he heard the fa¬miliar screaming … expecto patronum … he groped in the mist for Sirius, and found his arm … they weren’t going to take him. …
But a pair of strong, clammy hands suddenly attached them¬selves around Harry’s neck. They were forcing his face upward. … He could feel its breath. … It was going to get rid of him first. … He could feel its putrid breath. … His mother was screaming in his ears. … She was going to be the last thing he ever heard —

Harry walked over to the book, picked it up, and watched one of the wizards score a spectacular goal by putting the ball through a fifty-foot-high hoop. Then he snapped the book shut. Even Quidditch — in Harry’s opinion, the best sport in the world — couldn’t distract him at the moment. He placed Flying with the Cannons on his bedside table, crossed to the window, and drew back the curtains to survey the street below.
Privet Drive looked exactly as a respectable suburban street would be expected to look in the early hours of Saturday morning. All the curtains were closed. As far as Harry could see through the darkness, there wasn’t a living creature in sight, not even a cat.

“Percy only passed two weeks ago,” said George. “He’s been Apparating downstairs every morning since, just to prove he can.”
There were footsteps down the passageway and Hermione and Ginny came into the kitchen, both looking pale and drowsy.
“Why do we have to be up so early?” Ginny said, rubbing her eyes and sitting down at the table.

As one component of the interconnected global ocean, it is connected in the north to the Arctic Ocean (which is sometimes considered a sea of the Atlantic), to the Pacific Ocean in the southwest, the Indian Ocean in the southeast, and the Southern Ocean in the south. (Other definitions describe the Atlantic as extending southward to Antarctica.

Cádiz had been invested by the French in early 1810, but in March of the following year a reduction in the besieging army gave its garrison of Anglo-Spanish troops an opportunity to lift the siege.

At the beginning of the 21st century, when the northern polar region came into view, the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) and Keck telescope initially observed neither a collar nor a polar cap in the northern hemisphere.[96] So Uranus appeared to be asymmetric: bright near the south pole and uniformly dark in the region north of the southern collar.[96] In 2007, when Uranus passed its equinox, the southern collar almost disappeared, while a faint northern collar emerged near 45 degrees of latitude.
