      Hey Dan,

      Thanks for your interest! It’s always fun to hear from readers, especially fellow bug bloggers. We recently saved a lost colony of bees ourselves. They were hidden away in an old gas drum. They now live on the bug farm buzzing away. Maybe we can get a more in-depth post up about that.

      Anyway, as per your request, I added a RSS button to the top of the main page. I know it was on my “to do list” at some point. Better late than never, I suppose.

      Thanks again,

    Sockeye salmon are the slimmest and most streamlined of the 5 species of Pacific salmon.
    As I was riding my bike down Valencia Street, I stopped to
    admire an urban garden grown by a school right along their sidewalk.
    The largest proposed project is a series of wind farms
    to be built in a secluded 175 square mile area in Markbygden in Northern Sweden.
