    It's all been said..........

    My single favorite is to kick back when a good flow in on and watch the sorties coming and going.

    My favorite thing about bees and beekeeping is a cool glass of Home Brewed Mead at the end of a long day.

    I like to lay on my back in the morning apiary sun and while listening to the bees and smelling the ripening honey.

    Taking an observation hive to pre-schoolers "Show and Tell" and the look on their faces.

    Opening a hive and the smell of ripening honey, beeswax and the unison sound of the hive.

    Favorite thing has to be having a beer in the back yard, watching the bees come and go.

    My favorite thing about bees and beekeeping is seeing lots of ones, fives, tens, and twenty dollar bills in the jar when I open the Honey House door.


    Have a nice holiday my friends.

    To take non-living wood, wax, nails and wire and turn this into a viable hive.

    Poking my nose into their world and trying
    to imagine how it all works.

    I hope I never lose my wonder

    To all the BeeSource members, have a safe
    and happy holiday season.

    It's my first year. It was the look and excitement on my twelve year old sons face as we opened a hive. Along with the amazement in his eyes as we entered a new world of nature.

    Give Thanks for the things the LORD has given!!!

    Thanks Brent, It says volumes don't you think?

    The quote comes from Doolittle's book published
    in 1889 titled The Hive And The Honeybee.
    Recommended reading for any student of beekeeping.

    The best excuse in the world for sitting in a filed in summer and just looking at nature.
