I wish it was $4/US gallon here. I make £1.78/ litre equivalent to around $5.3/US gallon.
I see where I made the mistake. I multiplied by 1.78 as if it was dollars, not pounds.

…It was a bit tricky picking up the broken frames with honey laden comb, while the bees were busy robbing honey.

But I got it done.
By coincidence we got a look at my nephew’s bee hive yesterday, which has been going for all of four weeks. With all the tree blossom lately the bees have got off to a good start and we brought a small sample home. Shop-bought honey simply cannot compete for taste!

Stopped to fill the Ram after work today, before leaving the city and heading home.

$157 for just over 21 and a half gallons of diesel.

It is feeling like Europe around here.

Oh, and why two receipts? The credit card companies won’t allow more than $125 for each sale.

Come on, man!
I see your $5.90/gallon and raise you $5.96 to $11.86/gallon.
Having said that, that's "only" US$7.59.

Our son graduated Thursday. He's front right (our left, looking at photo) in the first photo.

He looks just like you, albeit slightly more svelte. And his mum looks proud too!

Do you hold to the local honey to beat allergies theory?

He looks like he would fit better inside a armoured vehicle.

The price of fuel is nothing compared to the price of beer at the USPGA Championship. $18 for a can of Stella Artois

No, they’re over a hundred miles away - and in Engalund - so not local at all. Scots bees are a tougher lot.

I do.

I suffered from hayfever and pollen allergies in my late teens, early twenties. Mom started keeping bees about the time I was 25. Been eating nothing but the honey her bees produce ever since. My seasonal allergies ceased by the next season, and have not bothered me since.

Oh, and honey has been given freely from my mother ever since, more than forty years.

She isn't really keeping bees anymore, although there is an active hive the on her property. She does have a bunch of two and a half, and five gallon pails of honey, and I keep finding boxes of jars filled with honey and labeled with the business she had. Most of it is sugared up, but a brief dip in a double boiler and it looks like the day it was extracted from the comb.

It wouldn't be a stretch to say I will never have to buy honey.

Stella from a can?

Sacrelige!




There is only one way to enjoy a Stella.

And it absolutely must be frosty cold.
