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.

Henry Fonda and Martha Stewart.
Although Peter Fonda played the part of beekeeper in Ulees gold,his father was the beekeeper of the family.
 Bees at the White House? The Obamas do not keep the bees,they actually were set there by groundskeeper Charlie Brandt(not so famous).

Peter Strauss had beehives in his citrus groves for a few years. Didn't see them last time I drove by, but I saw Peter. Much better in real life than TV. He was covered with dust, wearing jeans and an old hat, and HOT. Rugged, even. Looked to be in early 50s though he's 63. I had no idea.

He eventually retired to Sussex and became an etymologist specializing in Bees. He invented the idea of marking bees with tiny drops of paint so he could study their movements -- an approach that is really used today. He also discovered that bee stings help with arthritis.  But this was after he was brought back to life after people complained when he was killed off.  He supposedly fell to his death at the Reichenbach Falls in Switzerland during a fight with his arch-enemy Moriarty. But because the readers complained Conan Doyle had to bring him "back from the dead" by pretending that only Moriarty had died and that Holmes had temporarily disappeared to avoid other enemies. Cool huh?

often forgotten in beekeeping lore..... John Dzierzon who pennned the Dzierzon Theory and as stated in my very old abc-xyz  'and thus in reality laid the foundations for much of our scientific and practical knowledge of bees'.

he also invented a very early version of a moveable frame hive which are still used to some degree in Germany today.

My husband's aunt lives in Ukraine, and I was super impressed with this guy! I didn't follow his politics all the way through, but just his determination to press on despite nearly dying and being horribly disfigured was really amazing. I shouldn't be surprised he is a beek! What better qualities?

Federal property in the District is not governed by municipal law.  DC was created to prevent any state or local political body from manipulating the Federal government.  Based on the polls, I'd say you should get used to those bees for the next term.
