My City, Wellington is the capital of New Zealand and The Parliment is shaped like a beehive and it's called the Beehive
Just thought I'd add.
LOL! I spelled it like that on purpose. Sorry I didn't make it clearer. Utah is known as the Beehive state BUT... the majority population is Mormon or Latter Day saints. The alcohol laws are strict, you have to have a membership to a "club" to go clubbing (or bar hopping) etc. Also Mormons don't (or I should say, aren't supposed to) drink alcohol, coffee, tea, smoke or have sex before marriage. So some of us lovingly call it the "Beehave State" instead of the Beehive State! (Because you're supposed to be good). Hope that makes it a little more clear! I forget sometimes that we have friends from all over the world on the boards! ACtually I love Utah and Mormons. My two daughters are Mormons and one is on a mission (trying to save Yuma Arizona, one door knock at a time!) So it's all in good fun. It's a wonderful place to raise a family and it's very beautiful. I have a beautiful picture from one of my scrapbooks that maybe I'll send for you to see. I'll have to make it smaller first because right now it's formated for print quality.
Sorry to get off the track!
