 I got a new phone a couple of weeks ago.  It's okay, but I liked my Moto X more.  Mostly though, it isn't bad...except the spell check.

Spell check is way out of control.

It will "correct" normal words that you spelled correctly.  For example, it recently changed "hive" to "give."  I didn't misspell hive.  It just decided on its own that give was a better word or something.  It will even "correct" a work in the middle of the word.  For instance if I write "instance" it might correct it to "instayce" thereby turning my perfectly spelled word into gibberish.  I mean, WTH is that even supposed to be?  It errors more than I do.  Sometimes it will even continually fight you as you try to correct the word it wrongly autocorrected so that you're basically left fighting with your phone.

I might turn it off.

In other sad news, my hive died again this year.  I collected the honey and looked through the hive.  This time around it looks like I lost the queen sometime during the winter.  The hive numbers are low and there's signs of a laying worker.  The honey's still good and since dwindling numbers of bees means less mouths to feed, I got a good amount this time.

I think I'm going to wait a couple of years before going at it again.  Most hobby beekeepers still keep multiple hives because hives have a 40% die off rate and that'll be hard to manage while Amelia's little.  When she's around 4, I'll be able to do 2-4.
