That Infinite Night Sky

My name is Ruth, and I know first hand that homelessness can happen to anyone. It was 1984 when I stepped off the plane in Denver. I looked up and was shocked to see how much open sky there was. It was a very freeing change of scenery for me, coming from a small town in Alabama. Those tall southern trees tower over everything, and the sky gets shaded out. I love Colorado for its change of seasons, but my love for the outdoors stems from my childhood memories of those Alabama forests. It amazes me how many parks there are in Denver. One can appreciate nature throughout the city. I love...

Swarm Season

     As we move into summer we are coming to the end of the bee swarm season. This is a very exciting time of year at EarthLinks. Swarm season refers to a period of time that usually lasts a few weeks during mid-spring. During this time, strong, healthy beehives have a tendency to produce a second queen and eventually a large portion of the hive will suddenly depart with the additional queen to start a new hive at a new location. If you have never seen a swarm of bees before, the first time can be a frightening experience. When a honey bee swarm emerges from their hive the sheer number of...
