For the last several months i have been doing a lot of reading on bee keeping. I'm not sure what got me started on this idea maybe it was a video on you-tube maybe it was all the reports on the news about the bee's dying. I joined the local bee keepers club about a month ago. The first time i went i didn't expect there to be a lot of people and i expected those that where there to be above retirement age. I was wrong. Every time i go to a meeting there's at least 30 of us there. The ages are spread from around 20 to a very fresh 87. Everyone is so nice and helpful and they all love bees or honey or both.
My first experience with the bees was quite fun. I was worried how i would react to a few thousand bees flying around my head. I wasn't scared at all i was fascinated they where so gentle. Until that is one tried to fly in my eye and i wiped it away with my hand with out thinking and got stung right between the eyes. (yes i looked funny the next few days)
I ordered a bunch of wax frames and a bee jacket and hat. I don't want to get stuck between the eyes again :)
