Does the newborn have googly eyes?

She's due in June, and I don't think the mother will let me stick googly eyes on her as well.  :P

i'm getting back into bees, after a very long hiatus. i couldn't stand it anymore.

so i have just ordered four three-pound packages of italians, to be picked up next month a couple of hours north of here.

we won't be doing anything with them but feeding them to build as rapidly as possible, with an aim of building our numbers back up.

I was surprised to find out that I'm off tomorrow. So, instead of work I'm going to Jiu-Jitsu in the morning and spending the afternoon with the prettiest girl I know.

Hat tip to Lark :boaterhat: for this one:

"Machine 'could quadruple' heart and lung transplants" | BBC

Quote
The number of heart and lung transplants could quadruple thanks to a "reanimation" machine used in a pioneering operation, a hospital says.

The device, developed at Royal Papworth Hospital in Cambridge, managed to pump oxygenated blood into both organs in a world-first procedure.

The machine can revitalise deteriorating organs allowing "donation after circulatory death" (DCD).

Hospital surgeon Pedro Catarino said it was like "recharging the batteries".

"It is reanimation and then it replenishes the energy stores of the heart, what we call reconditioning, which allows it be transplanted," he said.

"We think it could at least double and perhaps quadruple the number of [heart and lungs] available for transplant."

He said it was desperately needed, adding: "Patients die on the waiting list every day."
