Bees Paint 15 wooden tooth picks black, then break each in half. Cut 30 ¾-by-2-inch strips and wrap each around a toothpick, making sure the pointed side is left exposed.

  15. I think that everything published made a lot of sense. However, think on this, what if you added a little content? I ain’t suggesting your information is not good., however what if you added a title that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean BLOG_TITLE is a little boring. You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create article titles to grab people to open the links. You might add a related video or a picture or two to get readers excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.|
