Providing comfort for injured bee.

I found this female bee in bad shape. It looked like she had just got away from something or maybe she’s an older 1. So I fixed her up by putting rocks, nectar fresh plants & a sponge soaked in sugar water inside a bowl. I know she’s a female because males have a large white spot on their heads. Her wings are torn, she’s missing a leg & her body is roughed up. Although her stinger is still well intact🥴. I brought her in so I could softly wash her body down, pet her & then put her in the bowl for comfort measures. She’s a Xylocopa virginica, also referred to as the eastern carpenter #bee. Male carpenter bees cannot sting but the females can deliver a painful sting. I figure she’s an older 1 because young females rarely leave the nest & guard the entrance while the older females work. That’s why younger females have stronger mandibles & unworn wings. They survive mostly on nectar & & pollen. The newly emerged bees don’t have food stored in their nest, but they are brought nectar. She was definitely nectar robbing,(lil thief ⁉️),meaning she was using her maxillae to penetrate the corolla of my plant so could she bypass pollination (how rude🤣, selfish booger🐝). Yes, here in #ParisTn, I have an injured bee & I’m providing comfort
measures. Jokes😂😂😂 … I told my husband that if we could comb her hair maybe she’d feel better…. my hubby just looked at me & then I busted out with a laugh saying, we can’t because we don’t have a honey comb.
*So for an English Grammar lesson: when writing honey bee or bumble bee then you have to use the 2 words separate …it’s not correct to write it as, ‘honeybee or bumblebee.’ Wikipedia: both spellings. In the preface of his 1956 classic Anatomy of the Honey Bee the American entomologist Robert E. Snodgrass explains the book’s title: First, it must be explained why the name of the bee appears in the title as two words, though “honeybee” is the customary form in the literature of apiculture. Regardless of dictionaries, we have in entomology a rule for insect common names that can be followed. It says: If the insect is what its name implies, write the two words separately; otherwise run them together. Thus we have such names as house fly, blow fly and robber fly contrasted with dragonfly, caddicefly and butterfly, because the latter are not flies, just as an aphislion is not a lion and a silverfish is not a fish. The honey bee is an insect and is pre-eminently a bee; “honeybee” is equivalent to “Johnsmith”.
A 2nd quote is much more recent & a little easier to read. It appears as the Author’s Note in Fruitless Fall by Rowan Jacobsen (2008):
Copyeditors1 of the world beware. The spelling of insect names in this book follows the rules of the Entomological Society of America, not Merriam-Webster’s. When a species is a true example of a particular taxon, that taxon is written separately. Honey bees and bumble bees2 are true bees and black flies are true flies. A yellowjacket, however, is not a true jacket. Entomologists, who have to read the names of bugs a lot more than the rest of us do, would appreciate it if we all followed these rules.

The word bee is a noun. The adjective that describes the type of bee goes before it e.g. honey bee, sweat bee, carpenter bee. When you go to the grocery store – not grocerystore – you buy runner beans and broad beans not runnerbeans and broadbeans. Similarly, the word fly. If what you are referring to is really a fly, an adjective is used to describe the type of fly e.g. hover fly. But if it is not a fly, a new noun is needed to describe it. For example, a butterfly is not a fly and butter does not describe it – it can be modified with an adjective e.g. blue butterfly (but not written as bluebutterfly or blue butter fly). It is not just pedantry.
Woodbury Grammar Is it copyeditor or copy editor? I found 1 person’s view on this and I’ll post the link:

Oh my wow, some people will lie about anything. I couldn’t figure out why Trump was again boasting about himself and how he brought NASA back and did thing’s that previous presidents have not done to get people to space and that former president Barack Obama did everything he could to end it and then he mentioned that he couldn’t leave it to sleepy Joe Biden so he dealt with it & blah blah blah! Just like when he was the lying president of America…. lies and taking shots at other people. I just couldn’t figure out why DonaldJTrump.com was going on about it again??? Oh okay now I know he was actually being a ‘jealous tantrum throwing toddler’, because #jeffbezos went to space with other’s such as 2 women, his brother and I believe another passenger or 2. 1 of the women had training back when she was young but because she was a female, she wasn’t allowed. The facts are that NASA has never been closed & dead. The space program will be part of Obama’s legacy although it wasn’t just him by himself. Commercial spaceflight did take off during the Obama presidency. For example, 2 different American companies, SpaceX & Orbital ATK, started flying uncrewed resupply missions to the ISS for NASA.
Also SpaceX & Boeing held multibillion-dollar contracts to fly NASA astronauts to and from the orbiting lab.
NASA’s Commercial Orbital Transportation Services program kickoff announcement was in January 2006, but it was “turbocharged” under the Obama administration. According to Casey Dreier, director of space policy at the nonprofit Planetary Society, Obama made the development of private crew-carrying vehicles a priority.

“That, to me, is the biggest legacy [of the Obama administration] — fully embracing the potential of commercial launch capabilities, and really, really making that a priority, and fighting for it against a lot of opposition from Congress,” Dreier told Space.com. “I don’t think commercial crew was fully funded at NASA until 2015.”
BTW, they used Blue Origin, the company founded by Amazon.com chief Jeff Bezos! Will Trump ever stop lying? Just saying, #tbh. – Author Ven J Arnold

Christ Lutheran in Paris Tn

http://www.lutheran.paris/

We’ve tried to get our former church to get off the ground and we we’re working on ways to bring people in or to get out in our community. This church is dying. The pastor is a whole other person then he appears to be when you meet him or start visiting or until you get to know him. He puts himself in God’s position or really believes that he had the power. Thus is a pastor that will condemn people to hell and separate from God through all eternity in which he believes he does. After George Floyd’s death during all the #Blm protests he made a not so funny joke about the BLM & ppl laughed. I have proof of this because I did a video of that particular sermon. I really didn’t find it shocking coming from him because his daughter shot and killed an unarmed Blackman while on duty. During this past Christmas he banned a handicap female senior citizen from the church for 6 weeks. I would say he’s very toxic and it doesn’t stop there, at least 2 if the board members thinks just like he does & they incite and gaslight. Then we were called in to have a private meeting with the church president in which he explained our church is a home church to the members we have attending now(which is not much and is still dwindling). Just a week ago I ran into an elderly woman that said she is attending again but she told me something I didn’t know… according to her pastor condemned her to hell some years back due to her and her hubby divorcing but he didn’t take her membership away or have her excommunicated. She just quit coming for some years. Their website says all is welcome which is not true because we even had a voter’s assembly meeting to vote on not allowing the unchurched kid’s under 18 to keep attending unless they had a parent or guardian who would attend with them, which they didn’t So soon there were only 2 under 18: my son and another person’s grandson.My son quit when he became of age and the other one quit either right before him or right after. The site says new visitors every Sunday and that’s no where near true plus the members that use to attend regularly has declined greatly. We were actually defroked and then excommunicated and we we’re not even under church discipline. The pastor refuses to give us the information of what horrible sins we unrepentant of that he turned into the district.I don’t believe for a second the district would’ve went along with this unless they were told something so vile. I still believe that it was because after church 1 Sunday, the pastor was so embarrassed by his actions when he lost his temper with me then put this hands on me in front of a few others. So it was easier for him to make up something, with his 2 backing him up, and tell such an awful lie so that he could face the rest of the members and maybe he was scared of getting in trouble for his actions. I was helpless and crying but he had another man on the opposite side of me and I was begging to please just let me leave but he kept screaming you are not leaving here until…
A friend and member that I rode with heard the yelling all the way outside while sitting in her car with the ignition on so she came in and pretended as if she heard nor saw anything in her way in and politily asked,are you ready,thought I’d see what was keeping you That’s when pastor yelled for me never to come back and I was no longer a member there. I called him later that week with speaker and recorder while my husband sat beside me to ask him to please let me come back and I would say to him and the church in front of the church anything he asked of me but he started getting loud and saying never and never would I be a member of another #Lcms and he was eternally putting me outside of God…I was crying and couldn’t get a word in edge wise so my husband said to just hang up the phone.We got our certified letter and the last 2 paragraphs were addressed to me… Basically by following what was prescribed in Matt 18 and that the district president was notified and agreed with the decision. For the life of me I don’t believe that the district would be in agreement unless they were lied to and told of some such vile sins that I was commiting without repenting. The pastor refuses to let me know what they were told that made them agree with excommunicating me.

This church is not it seems.This pastor seems dangerously toxic which is not good Another thing so far is that all their websites are not safe. NOT ONE! YOU JUST HAVE TO PRESS THE SYMBOL AT THE TOP CORNER FOR DETAILS. THEIR WEBSITE IS MISLEADING.THEY HAVE MORE AND THEY ALL ARE.

Motivational Picture Quote

… instead of trying to change the amount of time in a day,
change how you live every day ❤️ @AuthorVenJArnold
A full dark & light period, sometimes
called a nychthemeron in English, from the Greek for night-day; or more colloquially the term 24 hours.
There are 1440 minutes in a 24 hour period. There are 86400 seconds in a 24 hour period. YOU CANNOT CHANGE THAT!
… INSTEAD OF TRYING TO CHANGE THE AMOUNT OF TIME IN A DAY,
CHANGE HOW YOU LIVE EVERY DAY ❤️. MAKE THE MOST OF EVERYDAY EVEN IF YOUR MOST IS NOT AS MOST AS EVERYONE ELSE’S MOST, JUST KEEP GOING & PUSHING THROUGH.
Did you know:
1 day = 24 hours/day × 60 minutes/hour × 60 seconds/minute = 86400 seconds/day.

Only In A Lutheran Church

#onlyinalutheranchurch Only in a #lutheran church, you have 3 hour business meetings and no time limit potlucks but preaching the word is a dangerous line to cross when the pastor goes over the time limit. @AuthorVenJClifton Venjencie Clifton Arnold #funny #lutheranMemes #memes #sacredinkedblood #googlesearch #tbt Quotes.

The ego leads to projection, projection leads to distortion. Deformation leads to false blame.

Honesty leads to self-awareness, self-awareness leads to acceptance of change. Self-change leads to ownership which leads to victorious results.

I Believe

…and so what if I believe, God created the moon just for me, would you just let it be, I need it to be true, more than you can comprehend, and so what if I believe that’s His master plan, It doesn’t hurt you, what my heart holds to be true, it’s not against you, nor, do you need to understand, GOD does all things, His special way. #SacredInkedBlood AuthorVenJArnold #googlesearch #Ibelieve The moon is best friend, it heard all of my terrors in the night, it was a constant in my life, and it comforted me, the light. © an hour ago, Venjencie Clifton Arnold   friendship • hope • nature • rhyme • spiritual • writer https://www.instagram.com/p/CPAiJrKJksS/?utm_medium=share_sheet
