FEED ME HONEY or I`ll smash your screen !


« on: August 23, 2010, 03:11:27 PM »

While talking to a local reporter about the horrors of the varoa mite and problems with treatment a question about famous bee keepers came up.

I wonder if any one has some ideas or names of celebrities that could awake an intrest in beekeeping ?

Any help will be welcome           edward  tongue

Sir Edmond Hillary.

Was also the first to climb Everest. He kept bees to allow himself time to do adventures with his time in the offseason. Hmmm...I think he had a good plan.  grin

There is Bruce Campbell from BURN NOTICE and EVIL DEAD fame - he and his wife own a lavender farm, collect pollens for fragrances. Mind you this was several years ago BEFORE Burn Notice, but they had a massive farm and sold mostly to perfume companies.

It's Bush's fault the dog poops.  Besides not picking up the poop creates a jobs for the unemployed presidential poop collectors.  Robert Gibbs certainly has his hands full and can't do it all by himself.

I wonder who does keep the bees at the White House,  what it pays and how they got their job?

Might be time for a new post.  At what point do you become a bee "keeper" and not someone who "has bees"?

Wow,  I answered my own question and wanted to share.http://www.thedailygreen.com/environmental-news/blogs/bees/bees-white-house-garden-88032302

This is particularly interesting

The much celebrated beehives in the Obama's White House garden are being kept in violation of the law. The DC Municipal Regulation (DCMR) 904.1 prohibits such a hive within DC. Those of us who are local beekeepers and adhere to the laws (despite not liking them) are given a bad image by the rich, elite and poltically well connected that are scofflaws. By ignoring the law they make it harder for law amiding beekeepers to get overly restrictve laws changed to reasonable ones. Shame on the Obama's. Mrs. Obama's garden is an embarrassment and the Washington Post is complicit by sensationalizing the garden hives in its reports while refusing to report it is in violation of the law. The opportunity is here to 1. modify the law to something reasonable based upon facts not fears and misinformation, and 2. to bring Mrs. Obama's hives and those fo her friend Toni Burnham into compliance while doing so with a proper public discussion and amendment of the DCMR.
