    Help understanding android app permissions

    That permission is usually for apps that need to keep the screen on. For example a video player would be pretty useless if the screen went to sleep every two minutes. Paul Sent from my HTC One X using Tapatalk 2

    small wine bottles for mead

    Can anyone point me to a supplier of clear glass half size wine bottles (350 or 375 ml)? I have my first couple of batches in demijohns and will need to bottle them eventually. I don't expect to drink it in great quantities so half bottles would be best. Thanks, Paul

    3d printing and beekeeping

    I have a 3d printer. I build myself a MENDELMAX last year. I used to keep stabbing my fingers on the sharp pins on my "crown of thorns" thingy for queen marking. I printed a holder for the crown of thorns - a ring with a little hole for each of the pins. No more spiked fingers! I am seriously...

    Observation hive questions

    MrGrumpy - thank you for a very helpful response to my questions. It says you are "New Bee" with no hives. I don't believe it. richardbees - I am aware they are difficult. I was asking the questions I do not know the answer to, not the ones I do know - to paraphrase Rumsfeld, the known...

    New from Leics

    Hello and welcome from Hinckley. Get involved with the LRBKA - a friendly and helpful bunch in my experience. I did the training course at Walton which must be fairly close to you. Paul

    Observation hive questions

    Does anyone out there have experience of observation hives. I am making a five frame observation hive that we be used to show bees to the public at an event at the end of July and have a couple of questions. It is in a flat configuration with the frames stacked vertically between two 10 mm thick...

    Wind farms - any effects on bees?

    The reason they save money is the highly subsidized price they get paid for the electricity supplied to the grid - the so-called feed in tariff. This money does not come from nowhere, it is raised from increased energy prices for everyone. It is effectively a highly regressive tax on the poor...

    Bee sting desensitisation course

    The docs on my desensitization course recommend taking a ceterizine tablet before the injection to minimize the local symptoms - itching and swelling. They told me it will make no difference at all to anaphylaxis. Another doctor (the wife!) told me that the "non-drowsy" antihistamines are not...

    Bee sting desensitisation course

    Wow, I knew it must be expensive - 50 outpatients appointments - but I have never heard an actual figure. I have spoken to my doctors and also read as much of the research literature as I can find and the success of the venom immunotherapy (VIT) is commonly quoted as greater than 90%. My...

    Bee sting desensitisation course

    In the Leicester clinic they simply won't let you leave before the hour is up no matter how busy it is. If you have any symptoms apart from local redness, swelling, itching they keep you even longer. Sent from my HTC One X using Tapatalk 2

    Bee sting desensitisation course

    You must make sure you tell them about that reaction next week. That is definitely a systemic response the doctors will want to know about. I bet they keep you on the same dose next week. They did for me when I just had a bit of tingling in my lip at about the same dose as you. I just got...

    Bee sting desensitisation course

    I must say that one really good thing about Leicestershire A&E is that they give you an epipen and make the referral to the allergy clinic directly so there is no need to involve the gp in the initial stages. Paul Sent from my HTC One X using Tapatalk 2

    The maintenance dose of 100 Mcg (not Meg - it's micrograms) is equivalent to two beestings. Paul Sent from my HTC One X using Tapatalk 2
