Happy Father's Day to all!!!

Source:  www.lovethispic.com
Father's Day started in the early 20th century in the United States to celebrate fatherhood and to complement Mother's Day. It was first celebrated on June 19, 1910 in Spokane, Washington at the YMCA by Sonora Smart Dodd. She heard about Mother's Day in 1909 and told her pastor she thought fathers should have a similar holiday. Her father raised six children as a single parent. The local clergymen agreed to the idea and the first Father's Day sermon was given on June 19, 1910.

However, when the course of the Mississippi river changed, Rodney was left high and dry, and by 1870 Rodney was a ghost town (making it one of the older ghost towns). in the US).

A bee hive may have up to 80,000 Honey bees most of which are worker bees. The worker bees are female and have a lifespan of about 6 weeks in which they do all the work for hive.

Queen bee is the largest bee in the hive and rules it. It can have a lifespan of almost 5 years and is the only bee to lay eggs.

Honey bees help with pollination of various fruits and vegetables and this natural pollinators make a great contribution towards the existence and sustainability of the environment.

The honeybee is a useful insect and plays a great role in our existence by helping with the pollination process as well producing healthy and nutritious honey. It is important we conserve them and provide them with their natural habitat so that they can continue their good work for the environment.
