Not sure where you got your information, but it is not. Most people
seem to think they prefer cane sugar, but some studies indicate
hummers prefer beet sugar (http://trochilids.com/faq.html#nectar ).
Try them both, see what they prefer.
Honey, however is definitely a no-go for hummingbirds.

Here in Pennsylvania forest was destroyed years ago and many farms resulted.
So there was a great deal of farm land. So what did we do with all of our
intelligence? Destroyed the farm land and put in housing developments.

Beware of so-called tree experts who do not understand tree biology.
Storms, fires, floods, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions keep reminding us
that we are not the boss.
The same thing is happening everywhere.
Farmers lose their land to increased property taxes due to increased

Building housing on fertile lands is an f-ing crime.
There are plenty of places to build that are hostile to farming. It's
not a matter of space. Not really.

Between pet food and human food (of decent quality rather that eating a
diet high in starch like too many do) I spend about $250.00 per week at

Unless they eat crap like rice, beans and flour tortillas...
But who can afford beef nowadays? ;-)
I meant rice, beans and torillas as a staple diet.
We do eat rice but it's brown, red and black rice from the asian market.
Nothing wrong with a good stir fry served over rice but I was not
talking about that.

Hi; I'm Oz. Gladtomeetcha
I eat beef, pork, chicken, or fish at least once each day (but I must
confess, I catch the fish myself). Some of it processed -- as in
salami or sausage -- but most in its "natural" state. Other quality
foods, with not nearly as much (as I am still learning) from my own
garden as I would like. I probably eat too much, but very little of
it is junk or poor quality. I do, however, have a weakness for hard
This is just for me, as I live alone, but have guests in for dinner
about 5-6 times a month.

Check out Madhur Jaffrey's book World Vegetarian: More Than 650
Meatless Recipes from Around the Globe. She tracked down traditional
(read: easy and delicious) vegetarian recipes from all over. Try
"Nigerian Red Kidney Bean Stew with a Peanut Sauce" for your sons.
It's basically bean chili with peanut butter added. As Madjur says,
"The peanut butter flavor just seams to melt away, leaving only an
unctuous sense of creaminess."
I'm a flexitarian who doesn't buy or cook meat myself, but will eat it
in social situations to not be rude. We eat a delicious and varied
diet for about $35 a week per person. We're chose to do this for
moral, health, and environmental reasons.
Environmental reasons? Yes, vegetarian is the new Prius, with a much
smaller initial investment. (And you can keep your truck to haul
mulch.) University of Chicago researchers found that "when it's all
added up, the average American does more to reduce global warming
emissions by going vegetarian than by switching to a Prius," reports
Kathy Freston on the Huffington Post.
