    Default I have Missed You All!

    Hey ya all! I have really missed this place. I am now finally settling down after the job change in August.

    I must say, teaching rocks. I love teaching students and seeing them grow. Some of us went to an apple farm and it was really cool.

    I just wanted to say hi to everyone! I have missed beesource and al the "crazy" people here!!

    Man, Chef Isaac, I'm glad your back too. I was going to say so in my email minutes ago. I was hoping who hadn't disappeared all together.

    Best thing I have done. Now I will have time for the bee business and to grow it and strengthen it.

    Take a look at our web site at http://www.sweetascanbeehoneyfarm.com

    We added some new recipes and changed some things around. Let me know what you all think.

    I think you sound a lot happier than when we spoke a few months ago. Glad to see it, Chef.

    Hey, Chef -

    Welcome back. Glad you took my advice.

    Nothing like change to make it all worthwhile.

    It was the best change I ever made!

    Michael: I still have bee issues! But I will figure it out sometime or another. I think I just need to stop.... learn slower and hone in better at my skills. Thought about not raising queens this upcoming season and focus on increases, etc and the general health of the bees.

    glad to see you back chefissac. most definitely glad to hear the teaching (always an honorable profession) is going so well.

    your web site loads very slowly. I am on a dial up, but the speed seems incrediable slow.

    I have found chefissac that my own focus on which aspect of beekeeping I will stive to improve changes all the time. I also believe that things that at one time I had confidence I was doing well were really not that well done, but more information or a better benchmark alerted me to my own failings. to make the best better... is an old line from my 4-H days... it still ain't such a bad idea to stive for (imho).

    the best to you, your bees and your family...

    Hey Chef,

    Hope the new job is going well.

    But..... you knew that was coming,lol...

    I watched your video on your web site,

    Here's my two cents worth, Take your coveralls off and wash them, it makes the person about to buy your honey a little more excited.

    and one last note, the picture with "the bees hard at work" with the syrup bottles on top didn't seem to go with the theme "hard at work".

    Glad our-- SOOOO great advice-- worked

    Isaac, I am glad you love teaching. I loved it as well. You may have some that will try you... over look that. Sometimes they just need someone to get them interested. But I am thinking, the students you have, are already interested and will listen and learn. Good luck and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    OH, BTW, everyone in Beesource will be at your place for your wonderful cooking on Thanksgiving.

    About 2 o'clock, right?

    Keith:

    Yes, I know about the coveralls. This was in August when I was working both jobs full time and I didnt really want to do the interview at all until next season but that is not how it works with Kashi and the film crew.

    Heck, the bottles on top were left over from the spring time!

    Eagle: Would love to have everyone over!!

    The video was good. IMO, you had a better camera presence than the host! You're site really looks nice, the reorganization helped a lot.

    Do you mean excited because he has his coverall off?

    Chef, You've done a lot of nice work on the website since you first started it. I also enjoyed the video. Berk

    Just watched your utube video. Very very nice. Who did the work on that. Very nice job, I am soooo jealous.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
