A Jar Full of Honey

One of my friends is a beekeeper.  He's very zen and witty, but a wild man on a djembe.  It's the truth.

Another friend and I decided to get our hands dirty [and sticky] and help him jar some honey.  It was a unique experience, topped off with a knock to the head (a box literally fell on my head -- and I won't go into the details, but I will say that I feel a slight bit smarter these days because of it.  Sense restored, people).

My friend and I are giggly girls anyway, but get us near something interesting, and we turn into guffawing goofballs.  After we cleaned up from a busy afternoon, we decided to take lovely pics of me fakely filling up a honey jar.  Check out my fabulously snooty little finger sticking out, too.
I like the honey, and my beekeeper friend sells it at a local farmer's market.  I interviewed him, or tried to, a few months back and will eventually post it.  I'm horrible at interviews.  I'm not a roving reporter -- I'm a Southern girl with a drawl...and that's a fact, y'all.  I have more interview ideas, so I guess I'd better improve on that front.  Any pointers?  Tips?

Anyway, if there is a take-away point to this post, it's that raw, unfiltered honey is the way to go.  Enjoy!


  1. Neat! Looks like you had fun! I'm assuming B. was the "other friend"?
    Interview tips: How about remember to incorporate the 5 W's - Who, What, Where, When, Why?
    And stuff like, "What made you decide to go into .......?" "Tell me about your funniest / craziest / wildest experience doing xyz." "What have you learned from doing this for xxxx years now? What advice would you give someone just staring out in this field?" etc.!! :)

  2. I guess Jan has the interview suggestions taken care of, so I will respond to this post's take-away regarding raw, unfiltered honey... bees offer many health benefits from the honey to the pollen they collect. Besides, we need the bees to pollinate our fruits and vegetables too!
