    Re: idiom

    Things are really humming. Lots of things are happening all together OR something that is being organised is becoming very busy - comes from the sound of lots of bees.

    Turn over a new leaf Erase the past and start again.

    Put 2 and 2 together From evidence presented, draw a conclusion {sometimes a wrong conclusion - so the extension of this saying is "He put two and two together and came up with five}

    What do these idioms mean? Thank you.
