What I do for bees!

So today,  Monday, I'm at Richter's Orchard in Northport, learning all about bees from master beekeeper Rich Blohm. I'm pretty excited about it, and not the least bit nervous, as Rich promises to hook me up with a full protective beekeeping suit.

It's not hot out, but it sure is sticky and humid. And I'm not allowed to wear any perfume or deodorant, or use any hair products. So I anticipate being smelly and frizzy by the end of the day.

I'll share the details, photos and video -- for better or worse -- later this week.
