Bugs, Bees, Bats, Beatles

All bugs are insects, but not all insects are bugs. The Praying Mantis is an insect, but I don’t think it is a bug… but I needed a ‘B’ word for the title of this post…

Bees: “Flight of the Bumblebee” is an piece of music written by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov for his opera The Tale of Tsar Saltan. It was composed in 1899–1900. It evokes the seemingly chaotic and rapidly changing flying pattern of a bumblebee.

Bats: Since no one actually speaks ‘Bat’… In the people world, locating some one by calling out ‘Marco’ and getting the response ‘Polo’ if the person is in hearing distance – I learned this from my grandchildren.

Beatles: At over seven minutes in length, their song “Hey Jude” was the longest single to top the British charts up to that time.

    1. British comedy – I don’t think there is another nation that has a sense of humour quite like theirs. We lived in the UK for two years. That was an intense learning experience that makes it so much easier for us to understand their accents, their terminology and perspective.


  1. Well, thank you for bringing me here so I could see that video! Not sure how I missed it before, but awfully glad I’m here now 😀


    1. Understanding the sex life of praying mantis is an important bit of knowledge that is useful… not sure when, but all knowledge is useful, right!
