Please consider signing this petition to ask the shareholders of Bayer to vote to stop production of harmful pesticides etc.  They say - ' In 24 hours, shareholders at the biggest chemical producer, Bayer, could vote to stop their toxic production. Massive public pressure has forced this debate, now let™s make sure they vote to save the bees. Sign the emergency petition!'

It takes a few seconds is all - go for it!!  welldone wave big_hug

Done, thanks Ruth, very worthwhileok

I don't click on any links on Facebook, am already fed up enough with them invading our privacy, moving the goal posts, foisting unwanted changes on us, giving the impression that we endorse products/services just because we might happen to click on them.......in fact am thinking of ditching FB altogether steam

(oops, sorry, that turned into a bit of a rant there embarassed)

I don't click either, in fact I have hidden so many 'friends' that I could be perceived as a miserable old toad.  I simply don''t want to wade through all those things that people flag up like 'inspirational posters'.  Bah, humbug!

I'll try that again!

I signed earlier this morning as I get my info direct from Aavaz.org by email. You can sign it by using this link.

That is why I signed early today too.  Are you signed up to 38 degrees as well?  You can find the link in the name.

I'll try that again!

Hi TA, yes I am. They do a good job getting info out to the public.

They do indeed.  Also, your MP is almost obliged to write back to you which makes me giggle no end.  Especially when it arrives from someone totally other and signed on his behalf.

I'll try that again!

I had never heard of this threat to bees. I guess I need to find out more.

Read Tamar's post on 16th April at Starving off the land , also Wayward Spark on bees replacing botox .

Hi all just signed that worthwhile topic. Sorry not been around but engrossed in trying to get our roof back on, but the weather seems to be against us at the moment. Hope all are well.
