I’ve had a tremendously busy week working with and visiting about bees.
The Brigham City Library had scheduled me to give a lesson about bees as part of their Gardening series. So on Wed Mar 11th I presented, “So you want to be a beekeeper”. It went quite well, however the paper did not get it advertised a week ahead as was planned, by the time the paper came out on the day of the class, well the attendance was not as good as we had hoped. Two days following and after a round a bout series of phone calls, I was in contact with a reporter Caroline Peterson, from USU TV. She had seen the article in the paper and wanted to do a story on bees. Later that afternoon we were standing in the hot sun doing interviews after taking pictures inside the hive. In retrospect, probably should have done it in the reverse order… After getting into the bees there were a few Guard bees still seeking revenge during the interview process. The following Mon. and Tues, My wife and I went to the Charter school in Perry and gave two introduction to bees lessons each day. Wed brought a talent show to the High School and We were asked to bring some hive equipment. Followed by our regular scheduled bee club meeting on Thurs. By the end of the week I was called and asked to do another Bee class at the USU Brigham City Campus, followed by another teacher wanting me to do the same at her school for another two classes… If it keeps up like this I’ll have to start charging for my time.
