** Planning for the Spring UP Bee Conference continues. A bit more is added to the website as it becomes available--upbeekeepingconference.weebly.com. It is looking like a really nice event is shaping up---mark your calendar Sat. March 31st, 2018.
***Now is a good time to put together some bee reading material for the coming months. A good start and a nice gift to yourself or other beekeepers is either or both of the major bee magazines--"The American Bee Journal" or "Bee Culture". Both of these have great articles and have info on new/old books that are available.
**** For those of you that have seen my video "Why I am a Beekeeper", I am attempting to get some of the pictures I used changed then I can put it in the public domain. I never realized the difficulties of traversing that whole issue. I need to be less technically challenged.
NON BEE PROJECTS
It might not look like it, but I really am involved in non bee endeavors. I am currently working on a couple of projects that I hope to have done by March.
1. The script has been written and I am now putting together pictures for a historical video called the "Born Cabin". It is a 1870's log cabin on this property that we have/are restoring. I have researched the history and hope I have done the old cabin justice. For the story--stay tuned.
2. On one melancholy night, I wrote a poem/thingy called "Am I Old?". Maybe just one to many aches that night. A talented musical friend has written music to accompany the reading. She will play it on a 12 string guitar. and my son-in-law will record it. Again, stay tuned.
From all of us here in the Far North Country--Have a wonderful Holiday Season.
