Does anyone know what happened to The Zen Zone? I went looking because I came across something I thought Marcus Dalton would be interested in but it's gone.

I just found out my neighbor was killed by a bee swarm on Sunday or Monday. He was using a backhoe to clear some brush and disturbed a hive, causing thousands of bees to attack him. He tried to run into a nearby paintbooth but hundreds of bees got in and were found dead alongside his body. He was 74 and still running a general contracting business.
This is the third death by bee swarming I've read of since moving here about a year ago.

I would say that a full lockdown of Arizona is justified at this point.

If you can't find shelter from a bee swarm, you may have to run for a quarter mile to get away.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

I can't even run for a tenth of a mile. I will just assume my fate as death and honey.

I went to a Nevada DMV office yesterday for a new vehicle registration (out of state sale). They have been having a number of difficulties with IT (and other issues) since reopening on June 15th. They are appointment only now (with limited services). I was in and out in about 20 minutes. It was the best experience I've had at a DMV.

20 minutes? You are so quick, you can try the Greek whorehouse next.
So many better men, a few of them friends, were dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things lived on, and so did I.
