Are you following along as NORAD tracks Santa's journey tonight?

NORAD TRACKS SANTA: The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is tracking Santa Claus' journey across the world as he delivers gifts to children. NORAD says its satellites are able to locate the jolly old elf each year by using an 'infrared sensor to detect heat signatures from Rudolph’s nose.' NORAD is a joint organization of the U.S. and Canadian military that was established during the Cold War to identify airborne attacks against North America. It has been been tracking Santa's sleigh each Christmas Eve since 1955. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of households will be celebrating smaller gatherings with fewer gifts, but even if his presents are scaled back, Santa will deliver love and goodwill to all good children. This week Dr. Fauci, who turns 80 today, reported that he personally traveled to the North Pole to vaccinate Santa. 'I measured his level of immunity,' Fauci said, 'and he is good to go.'

Very Interesting. Bees

I am often asked what my bees do during the winter. One common misconception is that they hibernate. In reality, they are very much awake inside their hives!

In the winter, honeybees cluster together in a ball roughly the size of a basketball. By flexing their wing muscles (the same muscles they use to fly), they are able to generate warmth and hold the cluster at about 85-90 degrees. The bees take turns shifting from the inside to the outside of the cluster so that everyone can stay warm. The queen is always kept at the center of the cluster.

In about a week, around the winter solstice, they will raise the core temperature of their cluster to 93 degrees. This is because the queen begins to lay eggs again around that time, and the bees must keep the brood at a constant 92-93 degrees.

By the time spring arrives, the hive will be bursting with new bees, ready to take over the hive’s duties from the spent winter bees. 🐝

Thank The Simple Wasp For That Complex Glass Of Wine

Thank you wasps! 🐝🍷

Don't swat away that buzzing wasp. It may help spread the yeast that starts the fermentation process in grapes while they're still on the vine. The yeast carried by the wasp give wine its complexity, scientists say.

This turkey! lol πŸ¦ƒ

Late one night last week, a local family heard a window breaking and strange noises in their home. They quickly called Loudoun County Sheriff's Office to report the suspicious activity. Deputies responded and found the suspect had barricaded themselves in the bathroom. The culprit in this situation was about 3 feet tall with shiny black feathers, scaly legs and a yellow beak. It was determined it would take a specialized team to extract this offender, you see, he was a wild turkey.

Humane Law Enforcement Officer Breslin responded to the call for backup and thanks to the help and teamwork of Sergeant Outlaw and Deputy Rafter from LCSO, they were able to secure the offending bird.
The rogue turkey was taken into custody, transported to and released in the front yard. We’re happy to report that while the turkey did take out the entire window in the family’s home, he was unhurt and quickly fled the scene to roost in a nearby tree. When asked for comment on why he had committed this crime, he responded β€œgobble, gobble”. Officers remain unsure of the turkey's true motives, but have suspicions that he may have been planning on stealing the family's toilet paper.
