Re: Not exactly uncommon

A long time ag, I stayed in an old manor house in South West UK on a horse riding holiday. My room was on the top floor & I noticed a faint, continuous humming sound. Looking out of the window, I saw quite a lot of bee activity beneath the eaves of the roof. I went to see the owner & asked if she knew there seemed to be bees nesting in the attic. "Yes", she said, "are they causing you a problem?". "No", says I, "they're not bothering me; so they've been there a while, then?" "Oh, about 200 years", she said, "only sometimes we get honey running down the wall in your room" ☺
