Smile and world smiles with you.

Damn it. I wrote out my entire 2012 year in review post, and then my fire fox crashed, and deleted the entire thing. Back to the start I suppose.

Other then my year in review things have been going well lately. Teaching Aerial 1-3 times a week at Station 515, just performed Magic in TeaseTowns holiday show this past weekend. I may be performing aerial in Chicago on New Years Eve.

endings, beginings.

It's the end of 2011...the close to another chapter which segues into a new beginning. Whatever has happened this year, is written, and blank pages await your inked hand.

2012 is YOUR year! It's your time, your chapter, your life!

So how will it be written this year?

I wish you much fulfilling peace, love, joy and personal success this year!

A little bit about bees

The honey bee we know and love today was not always in the U.S. The honey bee is not native to the Western Hemisphere... But if there was no honey bee in the States then how did the flowers pollinate and blah blah blah?

The united states has native bees just not honey bees, they are solitary bees that live alone. By solitary I mean that a single female, after she emerges from her pupae and is mated by a male, constructs, provisions and lays an egg in each cell in a nest by herself. This in comparison with social bees like the Bumble Bees, Honey Bees and Stingless Bees, all of whom have a Queen who lays eggs and a number of workers who look after them.
They are also called masonry bees, they live in small holes in wood and trees.

Colonies of honey bees were shipped from England and landed in the Colony of Virginia in 1622.
Honey bees may have been taken to Alaska in 1809 and to California in 1830 by the Russians

Masonry Bee


There are more then just one honey bee, currently, there are seven recognized species of honey bee with a total of 44 subspecies. None of these is was originally native to the united states.

Honey bees represent only a small fraction of the approximately 20,000 known species of bees. Some species may not yet have been discovered, and many are either not named or have not been well studied.

Bees are found throughout the world except at the highest altitudes, in polar regions, and on some small oceanic islands.

Many bees are black or gray, but others are bright yellow, red, or metallic green or blue.

Bees are adapted for feeding on nectar and pollen, the former primarily as an energy source, and the latter primarily for protein and other nutrients. Most pollen is used as food for larvae.

he best-known bee species is the European honey bee, The type of bee most used by bee keepers is called the Italian bee, because they are calm and produce lots of honey.

Bees can fly about 15 mph and will fly in a 3 mile radiance of their hive to collect honey.



In 1852, L. L. Langstroth, a Congregational minister from Pennsylvania, patented a hive with movable frames that is still used today. Modern methods of beekeeping came very rapidly following Langstroth's patent. Other inventions soon followed that made large-scale, commercial beekeeping possible.


From the beginning of beekeeping in the 1600's until the early 1800's, we assume that honey was largely an article of local trade. Many farmers and villagers kept a few colonies of bees in box hives to supply their own needs and those of some friends, relatives, and neighbors.

It was not until 1957 that beekeeping made it to a Commercial scale.

Angry McCain

Paul sparked an idea in my head, and I made this little "art work" I might make another one and spend a little more time working on it, since I made this one pretty fast and can't even realll read the Amtrack logo on the train.
