Not Wyoming Anymore Toto

Not Wyoming Anymore Toto

Wyoming? Well Toto, we’ve been homeless and blown about by the Wyoming wind of change since May 9th. It almost dropped us in several different places. But now that wind’s gone and look at this. I know we’re not in Wyoming anymore! First of all, some of the trees are strange. Plants And many of those flowered trees are filled with even more strange, but […]

Away

Away

Having sold the house, I’m now homeless and free to travel. As a result, I’ve been away from any reliable internet connection for awhile.   I apologize in advance for my late responses. But there’s not much I can do. I do appreciate all comments and everyone’s patience. And I’ll answer when I can. -dbguy

Gone Again

Gone Again

The Idea It’s the end of the Wyoming bee natural guy. At least the Wyoming part anyway. Sound familiar? Same thing happened a few years ago when I sold my bees, motorcycle, house and moved to Florida. Well, I’m leaving again. This time to South Carolina. And for many of the same reasons. That Florida experience didn’t end too well. Hope I’ve learned something from […]

Human Hive

Human Hive

We humans marvel at the efficacy of the honeybee colony. That superorganism houses, breeds, feeds, cares, cleans, defends and propagates itself in the most efficient and resilient manner possible. In spite of all the challenges and changes, the honeybee has survived intact for millions of years, while most everything else with origins that ancient has disappeared. So, if humans were given the opportunity, what would […]

Nature. Beauty. Gratitude.

Nature. Beauty. Gratitude.

What more can be said? The beginnings of my love of nature go far back into childhood where wonder, beauty, and nature’s intertwining wrap filled my live with joy and purpose. Somewhere along the way I lost much of that inspiration as: my spiritual connection with nature was replace by a dead, legalistic religion family responsibilities absorbed more of my alone time difference in life’s […]

Emergence

Emergence

Just how does intelligent behavior emerge from a collection of simple minded individuals? RadioLab has a great podcast that discusses emergence.   It’s applicable to honey bee colonies, ants, our cities and, in my opinion politics! 🙂 Using this kind of intelligence is a great way to solve complex problems. RadioLab asks: What happens when there is no leader? Starlings, bees, and ants manage just […]

UFO

Just saw a UFO. I can’t believe it! My wife was looking out the backyard picture window and called me to come take a look. So, I did. And I’ve never seen anything like it before. Background: I’m an amateur astronomer and have been watching the night skies since my youth. I’ve got a Celestron telescope sitting in my basement. And I’ve been around aviation as […]

It’s Spring

It’s Spring

It’s April 1st and like most April 1st’s, my spirit soars as the winter doldrums pass and are replaced with the promise of new abundance. That winter malaise, so often the result of a lack of vitamin D and a boring winter diet will soon give way to nature’s best. And it should be a good year indeed: Ah, there’s nothing like all natural spaghetti! […]

The Scale of Things

The Scale of Things

How we view the world has much to do with our scale of vision. Today, it’s possible to see both ends of the spectrum at incomprehensible scales. Here’s a neat site that can help put things in perspective. Incredible! This gives us beekeepers something to ponder when thinking about the great scheme of things. Thanks guys. -dbguy
