Ah, statistics again - how we all love them! My hives have doubled since last year, but I had nil in 2007. So how does that fit in? Double nothing is not 2Sometime last year, but don't expect me to find the post.
Anyway, a doubling of hives since 2007?
Trendy? Where? Accepted and even acceptable, but few people I know would consider it trendy.Hardly surprising as it's become a bit trendy to have bees in the UK, simple supply and demand....as in increased demand and very good money for nucs.
OTOH a decline in people keeping bees leads to a decline in colonies, something that we have seen in France and until recently the UK.
Is it not a trend? The current fashion? The direction in which it has gone? Become "popular"? In vogue? Complete "Bee kits" including bees?Trendy? Where? Accepted and even acceptable, but few people I know would consider it trendy.
Ah, logarithmically. You keep making words up, like George W Bush or Two Jags John Prescott.increasing logarithmetrically
10...100.... 1000...1000000 etc
thats to the base 10
or for the natural beekeeper to the base "e"
but for a correlative statistic you would need to deduct the number of people becoming past beekeepers.....
I'm sure PooBear comes into this somewhere, or is that thermodynamics?
So we can look forward to designer bee suits, then. I'm sure that will appeal to some people.Is it not a trend? The current fashion? The direction in which it has gone? Become "popular"? In vogue? Complete "Bee kits" including bees?
Oh yes, from what I hear and read it has become trendy and there seem to be a large number of people profiting from it one way or another. Who knows it may even in some cases provoke a greater understanding of the natural world of which we are a part although I won't be holding my breath.
I still don't understand the influence of the delightful Kate Humble, mind.
