Could always melt some beeswax and use a small art paint brush to apply it into the tight areas on the underside.  I have not had any problems with wax covered interior wood areas molding or mildewing here in Hawaii.
That's not a bad idea.  I thought about using a small brush, and I will if it comes to that, but some of these areas I couldn't reach even with a small brush.

That larva looks like a waxworm to me.  I don't know about the flower.  I'm bad with plants.  It's one of my beekeeping weaknesses.

What that proves is if you don't have lockdowns across the board they don't work because the places that don't lock down continue the spread and also the mutations of the virus.  Lockdowns worked in China and would have worked here if there wasn't opposition.  Now if you had a forward thinking mind you would realize that we are not in the clear with the vaccines because parts of the world are not getting them and will not get them for a long time if ever.

We have no idea what happened in China.  We do know that other countries, like New Zealand and Australia, did lockdowns.  They only work as long as everyone stays locked down.  As soon as they don't, the virus spreads.  Both are basically islands and neither seems to mind trashing their economies.  We do not know all of the internals in those countries either so the long-term damage is yet to be determined.

Not only are we not in the clear, but the virus likely will never be gone.  We will deal with it for years.  We will learn to live with it.  Again, we have yet to assess the long-term damage done here by what we have done.  I believe the hotwash on this will determine that we did little right and much wrong and that the long-term damage was worse than the damage from the virus. 

But hey, if you want someone to pop over and weld your door shut as they did in China, I'm sure someone would oblige!   :wink:

To a whole lot of people it is the indicator of what a great job Trump did.  So which side are you on now?
Warp speed is an absolute joke.  Pfizer was the first to develop a vaccine through no help from Trump.  Any president would have cut regulations given a viable vaccine during a pandemic.  All the pharmaceutical know that there are billions to be made on a vaccine during a pandemic.  They didn't need Trumps help but most were happy to hold their hand out when he was throwing money their way.

I have always said that about the stock market.

Pfizer was in competition with all the companies to get theirs out quickly.  That competition was set up by the Trump admin both by incentivizing those companies who wished it and by removing the bureaucratic red tape that would have kept a vaccine from coming to market for years.  Yes, there is a lot of money to be made, but first come, first served and no one gets anything if approval is stuck in the FDA process.

I do not know that any president would have done the same.  I'd like to think so.  I also know that some of them are so wedded to the processes that it might not have occurred to them that they could.  Regardless, Trump did it and for that, he should get credit, as should any president of any party who had done the same.  It should not be a partisan thing to give credit for something done right.

We're finally starting to get some warm weather so I cleaned my grid boards yesterday evening. I checked this evening and found what looks like a couple of flower petals. What are they?

I also found a larva that doesn't look right in a separate hive. Any idea on it?

We now have comparisons between places that did those hard shutdowns and places that didn't.
What that proves is if you don't have lockdowns across the board they don't work because the places that don't lock down continue the spread and also the mutations of the virus.  Lockdowns worked in China and would have worked here if there wasn't opposition.  Now if you had a forward thinking mind you would realize that we are not in the clear with the vaccines because parts of the world are not getting them and will not get them for a long time if ever.

The stock market is not an overall indicator of economic health.
Really?  I have been saying this all along.  To a whole lot of people it is the indicator of what a great job Trump did.  So which side are you on now?
