CCD on Martha Stewart Show
Word is that Martha Stewart is going to have someone on her show later today to tell about CCD. I wonder what that will be like.

Do I see a Martha Stewart line of fashionable beekeeping attire coming soon...

She's on at 10 AM on WNBC, here on the east coast.
To give Martha credit where due, she has had a hive or two on her 'farm' for years. She had bees on her show before, several years ago, where she actually harvested some honey herself then used it in a recipe or something, can't quite remember. Either she had rehearsed her lines very well or was at least more than commonly knowledgable. Good publicity and indeed, 'a good thing'.
You are right, Sherri. Bringng beekeeping into the media on a positive note is "a good thing." As far as whether or not she knew what she was talking about, I don't know. I do know that cue cards and teleprompter are great tools, though

Someone remarked that she had a master beekeeper come in an set up her hives and that she probably didn't know how to put a frame together. That was responded to by someone who said everyone should give her a break. He said he had been her beekeeper for six years or so and if everyone had her schedule they would need help, too. That makes sense. And the banter went back and forth, I don't remember all of the details.
So, that said, I guess I should give the devil her due. I'm kidding, I'm KIDDING!! I know she's not the devil!
