California Bees

Mr. Wonderful informed me this weekend, that there is a bee problem in California. Actually, it is a lack of bee problem, apparently.

Turns out beekeepers around our neck of the woods (and yours, too, perhaps...unless, of course, you live in Cali) are renting their bees out to farmers in CA for pollination. Hmmm...that alone is an interesting concept, isn't it? Kinda sounds like beekeepers are "pimps" and the bees are the prostitutes, or somethin'?!!

Renting bees out? Who'da thunk it?

Well, anywho, this bee renting out of, isn't going so well, according to my Mr. Wonderful. Our local beekeepers are losing bees, now. Seems that there is a phenomena going on with the bees in California (so they say)...they can't find their way back to the hive. Um...hellllloooo???

Like, totally, duh!!

Phenomena I think not! It's California, dudes! These bees are just smart! They leave the hive, pollinate some crops, catch sight of the ocean and that's the end. Surfer dude bees, beach bum bees, "betty" bees. They've had it with the work...they just want to play...and gosh, can you blame 'em?

And for sure this happens with MN bees!! Our bees are angry little things, bring 'em to Cali, show 'em the gorgeous weather, ocean, celebrities, and you can bet your sweet honey they ain't comin' back to MN!!

Sheesh...phenomena! Always a scientist havin' to make it all...scientific or somethin'!

  1. Ha! Your too funny.

    I live in California (Northern) I don't think they are so much getting lost as they are becoming acquainted with my windshield! My grandpa got in my car a month or two ago and looks at (out?) the windshield and say "Bees???"

    That's what happens when you drive by the orchards. :)

  2. **gasping for air** TOO FUNNY!

    Well, the bee problem is serious, but I LOVE your take on it. Had me laughing out loud... especially considering our move to Cali. Yup, we'll get there, see the beach, and go "New Brunswick what?"

  3. So in other words, the MN bee keepers will be more than happy to get rid of the large underground bee hive in my yard for FREE so they can rent them out to California?

  4. and the scientists will spend millions of dollars trying to figure out why and eventually, years later come to the conclusion their findings were inconlusive...

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here: Halo Braid Tutorial! Let me know how it goes!
I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other day...my best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it.
Instead, I got this:

Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks!
Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed braiding...watch the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!
And this story...which, well...is the same story, just told two different ways! ;)
So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
