    Re: BTU's of honey

    From Wiki, 100 g of honey = 1,272 kilojoules (KJ) and 1 KJ = 0.95 BTU.

    You are thinking/working too hard on a solution.

    I think that is the point that I have been trying to make. To clarify:

    I would hate to see how contaminated that creek is, not to mention the soil is Ace's "organic" garden.
