Greetings Infomaniacs,

Congratulations to "Tacey Rock" who won this week's "Mind Scrambler". Here was the scrambler:

Only one color, but not one size,
Stuck at the bottom, yet easily flies.
Present in sun, but not in rain,
Doing no harm, and feeling no pain.

What am I?

ANSWER: A shadow.

Enjoy!

RANDOM TIDBITS

Honeybees are not native to North America. They were introduced from Europe in the 1600s by the Puritans.

***

Honey never spoils. In fact, honey placed in tombs in Southampton, England, over 400 years ago, was still good when the tombs were opened.

***

Bees use ultraviolet vision to see which flowers have the largest amounts of nectar.

***

A typical worker bee lives for one month and in that time collects enough nectar to make about 1/12 teaspoon of honey.

***

Honey is made from diverse flower sources - clover, eucalyptus, or orange blossom, for example - and soil chemistry and honeycomb quality also influence how it tastes and looks.

***

Bees have different dialects. A German bee cannot understand an Italian bee.
