I had never heard of a bee hotel until recently, and I have always wanted to keep bees, so having a place for them to hang out in the yard without the responsibility of ownership was very appealing to me.
Only a couple of hours of foraging, chopping and drilling and tadah! We have a bee hotel perched in the tree overlooking our vegetable patch. Anyone that sees it and has no idea what a bee hotel is, may just think that it is a pretty little wooden piece of art hanging up in the tree. It was actually fun to make and Seth enjoyed gathering the wood and drill the little bee holes immensely.
Who knows if it will actually attract any bees, but it looks cool and if it is successful the bees don't have far to go to the fruit trees and veggies. A pretty nice way to fill in an Autumn afternoon if you ask me.
Release Date: 2004
Running Time: 96 mins
A cult classic comedy written and directed by Jared and Jerusha Hess that received mixed reviews upon it's release in 2004. This is a movie for the underdogs, the weirdo's and the social rejects of the world, it celebrates everything awkward about being a geeky teen and clears a little space for the odd ones to stand in.
Napoleon Dynamite is a misfit teen struggling to get a girlfriend when his grandmother becomes injured. His uncle Rico steps in to help Napoleon and his online chat room obsessed brother Kip, but Rico only succeeds in making their lives even more difficult. After befriending an awkward Hispanic newbie called Pedro, the two decide to raise Pedro's status by campaigning for class president.
This is cringe worthy humour at it's best, all of the characters are unusual in their own way and the dress sense and hair do's are virtually indescribable, but it works. You'll be rooting for the weirdo too by the end of it.
FINAL SAY: Canned heat in my heels!
