I haven’t mentioned them in a while, but Rachael and my bees are doing fantastic! I am very excited to say that the first colony that we had purchased from the store last year is growing so fast that we had to add a third level to their structure. I pulled out one frame that was filled to capacity with capped honey! I was a little worried about this colony in the Spring since it seemed to be rather slow and not very active, while the swarm we had acquired late last Summer was very active. Well she has come back full force and we couldn’t be more excited! I am certain we will have a good amount of honey this year to make Christmas gifts.

But the firm is a violently jealous mistress that demands all his time and attention. Alex works 100-hour weeks, becomes servant to a very bizarre boss and drifts away from his girlfriend. He knows full well that this esoteric cult is driven by an insatiable thirst for money; but the shine of the golden cage is far too magnetic to resist.
