Bee Movie is a children’s cartoon classic made by Dream Words Studios. The family film features the voices of green celebrity actress Renee Zellweger and green celebrity actor Jerry Seinfeld as the hero and heroine characters. [Both are noted humanitarians and eco friendly activists.] The movie sparked the imagination of many young people who became interested in the history of bees and bee keeping.

Bees are known for making honey. Honey bees are loyal to their queen and always work to bring pollen and nectar back to the queen bee in the bees nest. Insects are fascinating to study in general, and while bees might be an insect you want to study from afar, the social interaction of bees while in the hive reveals a great deal about how a species can use positive interaction between society members who each have their own place in the social heierchy that help create functional and prosperous colonies. The children’s Bee Movie really emphasized this humanitarian theme. [Well, insect – arian, actually.]

Workers help the queen bee to tend to her eggs which are kept safely in the hive. Worker bees also visit a wide variety of local garden flowers, bringing back pollen and nectar that helps nourish the colonies residents and keep the hive thriving.

Bees rely on plants and plants rely on bees. When ever a bee flies to visit flowers, they take little bits of pollen and nectar between the plants to help cross pollination.

Bees are helpful little insects — but they are not much fun when they sting! Check out these amazing bee keeper photos. These bee your best bee keeper seen in the “man covered in bees” photos below are folks are far braver than me! Amazing. Simply amazing.

These rare animals are very cool reptiles, and while there is no confirmation that James Cameron or his team of artists ever saw these little flying machines, the likeness between them and the Avatar flying dragons in the blockbuster 3D movie is extraordinary. See for yourself.

Green Celebrity Spotlight: Shine On Eco Friendy Author Emilio Estefan (Rhythm of Success Book Review)

Author Emilio Estefan’s new book on sustainability a success according to eco friendly readers —

[Jan. 5]

I just finished reading a great book by Emilio Estefan called the Rhythm of Success.

Emilio Estefan’s name may not sound familiar to you. However, I’ll bet that Gloria Estefan does sound very familiar. Emilio is her husband and for many years her manager. The two have a huge name in the music industry, however, their company, Estefan Enterprises, also has real estate holdings. This is why I chose to highlight Emilio. He makes a commitment to “get into the habit of recycling and using only what we need-and preserving the rest or giving it to someone who needs it…”

Estefan Enterprises makes a concerted effort to use sustainable practices in their buildings, in fact one of their 30 businesses is the Costa d’ Este in Vero Beach, Florida and it is LEED certified. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.

Green isn’t limited to building though. It can be about any manufacturing process and even music. Borrowing from another musician, Will-I-Am, it’s a “little bit of old, and a bigger bit of New”.

The book Rhythm of Success was recommended to me by a friend who knows that I am ALL about the environment, energy conservation, improvement, investing, growth and learning.

I picked up the book and immediately fell in love with it! I hope you pick it up too.

It’s too late for Christmas but perhaps it can be a Three Kings day gift.
