** Beekeeping 101 Saturday Jan. 28th, 2017 from 10:30-1:30 at the Peter White Public Library. This is Beekeeping basics for the beginner and interested others. This is free of charge and put on by the Superior Beekeeping Club and sponsored by the Marquette Food Co-op. For details go to the club page.
*** Plan now for the March 10&11 Michigan Beekeepers Association Conference in East Lansing. The rooms at the Kellogg Center go fast so make reservations early. Other lodging is available but not as convienient. For those that have not attended before, I would encourage you to do so. Great sessions on all aspects of beekeeping, but better yet-700-1000 beekeepers in one place. What a great place to "talk bees". Info will be coming out soon on the MBA website.
**** Several of us in the Superior Beekeeping Club are exploring the possibility of an all UP Bee Conference next year-- March of 2018. Please throw any ideas or suggestions our way.
***** Always some new and interesting info on bees. I have been getting the online daily feed from Bee Culture Magazine--usually one or two articles a day to your email--no cost. I have found this a good way to keep updated.
****** For those of you that have been to our small piece of paradise here in the UP and pictures for those that haven't, I am writing this out in the little cabin in the woods. It is variously known as the Hobbitt House, writing cabin, or the pout house. It is 0 degrees and flurries coming down but warm and cozy in here. A "hard life" but someone has to do it!
