Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: Drinking wine with the girl child

I’ve been thinking about taking my daughter, Curly Girl, on an overnight mother-daughter trip, during which we will have special bonding time and stuff like that.

She would be doing the driving, but that’s OK, because she only has one accident a week, so the odds are with us. I can say that here with great authority because she never reads my column...

Genome sequencing shows climate barrier to spread of Africanized bees

Since the 1950s, "Africanized" honeybees have spread north and south across the Americas until apparently coming to a halt in California and northern Argentina.
