I've got a hundred hives, which translates to about a day per week of work. It's been 20 years, and I have experience in 4 Continents. I make about 800 dollars per month extra money, but the main thing is that I'm making a lot of people happy. I don't boil or microfilter my honey, it's right out of the hive, as I believe God intended.

The Hebrew word for bee is Deborah, and my second daughter got that name for obvious reasons!

And you can see from this photo that I am an expert in bee managment.

Whoa, is this cool or what!

Oh, your honey sounds delish.  I guess you can taste a distinctive difference in the honey.  And it would be darker in color?

I miss the natural honey.  Our family got it when I was growing up - 'Tupelo Honey", it was called, I guess from Tupelo, Mississippi.  Anyway, it was very dark, a rich flavor, rather expensive.  

AN extra 800 a month is definitely a good 'hobby'.  

And Deborah means 'bee'.  Hmmm.  Sure didn't know that.

Bee management, huh.  I guess you pix answers my question that you don't wear the protective gear, then.  Roll Eyes

So, if you live in a seasonal area, then guess the hives go dormant during winter.

When you harvest the honey, do the bees get upset?

Is there anything 'good' about boiling or microfiltering the honey, anyway.  'Seems like just a bureaucratic harrassment.

That's all I get to eat, is just the supermarket stuff - looks like all the value has been filtered out.  'Cept maybe for 'Spun Honey' - now THAT is good stuff.  But 'bout $5.50 a pound. Lips Sealed

No, nothing good at all. It is evil, and you should encourage your friends to support their local beekeeper. They need it, as the costs of producing  natural honey is so much that they can't compete with the processed, sugar added, water added crud that you get in the supermarket.

Be loyal to your local beekeeper, and you will see the benefits that King Solomon describes. When he said that honey brings health to the bones, the Holy Ghost Himself authored it.

Be holy and be respectful of your local beekeeper. If there isn't one, consider!!! Perhaps the Lord is calling you!!!

Definitely!

I have a new respect for honey and the bee and the keeper.

Weird that I was just reading that ency. article three days ago.

And production is probably one of oldest and most basic of 'trades' a person could invest his time in.

I was just reading, in my 1947 Cooking Encyclopedia, that diabetics can eat honey.  ??  

And that it has minerals ordinary (refined) cane sugar can't match.

I'll have to poke around and see if there are beekeepers.  I've see a few of the boxes around.

It would be best for diabetics to stay away from honey. And yes, it, if untreated etc.. does have lots of vitamins and minerals that refined sugar doesn't have. "Health to the bone" as Soloman said.

Tim, what a fantastic photo but what an accident!  

And it's so nice to see some of your work.

It's so interesting to know that you are a beekeeper.  I grew up with bees as did my father before me.  My grandfather was a beekeeper in Scotland before he came to Canada to live.  When I married my husband, he was very interested in learning about bees so Dad gave him some hives and we had a nice hobby until one day, after many years (about 30), he (my husband) got a sting that nearly proved fatal and we had to give up our beekeeping business.

  I do beleive that a padle should be used in conjunction with other forms of dissapline. I have two girls,ages 8 & 12 (12 to old for spanking) neither of them remember the last time they got spanked. why because I was very insistant on being consistant. they quickly learned not to test me. I always used one or two swats on the butt only. I doubt Ive given more than a dozzen swats between them in their entire lives. I constantly get complimented on what great kids they are.  It breaks my heart to see parents who are not consistent with their kids, they only punish every other infraction so the kids are always testing them and end up getting punished more often! it would be better for these parents NOT to spank.
