    Re: Carnolian Bee Reviews

    Love Carnis! I used to live up north and they faired better than the others. I didn't mind the rapid buildup. They're my first choice.

    Re: Footwear Do's and Don'ts:

    I tried the sandal thing. Not good if your toes aren't sensitive enough to feel your girls between them. Several stings between the old toes cured me of that.

    Re: To Much Honey

    Too much isn't a bad thing. Your girls will eat what they need, and take care of what needs to be taken care of. :)
