Obstetrician/Gynecologist in a large private group practice. Kept bees at age 13 and 14 with my dad. He died a couple of years ago and I started having fond memories of that time in my life and started beekeeping.  It always makes me feel like he is watching!

Police Detective.......... The bees keep my mind off of the drama of People. They allow me to fully concentrate on them and stop thinking about The Burglars, Rapists, Child Molesters, Robbers, and Murderers..........
that are always out there.


Its a great past time..... Wink

I work in a distribution center for a major sporting goods retailer.  I also mow lawns and do odd jobs for the elderly who can't afford to have a "professional" come in and do it.  Besides beekeeping, I also do living history programs, demonstrating colonial life circa 1750.  (How fast can you light a fire with flint and steel?)

Forester for a major paper company which produces 'product packaging'.  I get paid to drive the company supplied 4x4 to the mountain and walk in the woods all day.  Thank God I have the bees to calm me down after such hard work.   grin


For all of you that are cops-
My Alma mater also hosted a police academy.  My two roommates were in that program.  At dinner they talked about what evidence could be found on a dead body & having to be exposed to mace. A third roommate, the guy taking the fireman program, talked about having to find his way out of a cargo container filled with smoke but without his mask.  The most I could ever offer was the difference between Pitch & Slash pine!  You guys, & gals, Rock.  Thanks for what you do.
