    does he raise bees or just for pollinating (I never heard of that before)

    I love these soft, muted colors – looks like my yard right now.

    beautiful!
    do you and your husband grow or have orchards?
    -my brother got lady bugs a few years ago – they eat aphids and whatnot – funny they come FedEx – the bag inside has a bunch of bity holes in it – when you put the bag on the palm of your hand, you feel all the little thousands of lady bug feet dancing – ok, has nothing to do with hardly anything, just thought I’d throw that in…

    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    He raises bees for honey. Some of his hives over-wintered fine, but, some did’nt make it. So, you have to buy new packages of bees. Yes, there are alot of farmers that want you to put your bees by their fields, to pollenate their crops, especially fruit trees!!!! But, John just does it near us!!

    We’ve got the best!!! We don’t heat it when extracting, so all the GOOd enzymes are still in there!!!! Don’t buy it in the store, yuk!!!

    Come on over!!!! It does’nt mail well!!! My husband has a need to do everthing as perfect as he can, so even his hobby (bee keeping) is exceptional!!! Now, me on the other hand, well, let’s just say, cleaning is not my favorite sport!!lol, it sometimes drives him crazy!!! But, he’s learned to live with it!!! It’s not dirty, just messy!!!! I like piles!!!lol… As they say; Don’t touch the test dust!!!!

    Cathy H Chocolate Chick says:

    Glad to hear that I’m not the only one who makes piles everywhere! My husband doesn’t complain too much either. I guess I’m lucky – I hear of all these women who have “neat freaks” for husbands. :)

  17. ChickyD aka Debra
    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    I just read all the stuff about “piles”. My piles are called “nests”. I have nests in almost every room of the house.

    Love the budding tree colors, too!

  18. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Cathy, You know opposites attract!!!! My husband is a minimalist (spelling) Poor man, I’m a clutter-bug!!!!LOL

    good afternoon (or evening) chickies,

    Funny chick, love this Pick with such yummy earthy and more “airy” translucent beads, the green garnet, antique soochow and rhyolite goes well with the green tourmalinated quartz and rainbow aquamarine, plus bronzite!!!
    Glad to hear your husband makes honey w/ bees, how cool!!!
    love the chat about “piling up stuff” vs. spouses who are “neat freaks” or not… or at least are OK with spouses who aren’t “neat freaks”… :)

  21. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    I think I like the nests too!!!!

  22. KPJEWELS
    KPJEWELS says:

    Love the “nests”, that sounds better.

  23. Cathy H Chocolate Chick
    Cathy H Chocolate Chick says:

    I have nests too, sometimes more than 1 in each room. I’m surprised I didn’t find any eggs in them. LOL

    Anita, we must get together, you sound like my kind of person!!

  24. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    OMG – nests! I have to use that term for my towers of bead boxes. My husband thinks they’re just messes. By the way, I love this pick – my hubby has been wanting to try bee keeping for years, and he’s going to take a class this year and start next year. It’s so weird that you can get “packages” of bees!

    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    I just gotta get in this conversation! Love the line about ‘Test Dust’, I’ve never heard that before tonight. I’ll have to bring that up in conversation some day! :-) My husband puts up with me and my ‘piles’ although I’m not sure how. Lately though, I’ve been noticing that he has started some of his own piles ~ maybe it’s contagious! Very interesting about your bees, Funny Chick.

  32. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    BTW, awesome pick, great colors!

  33. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Yeah, I put the signs around the house, DO NOT DISTURB, TEST DUST!!! It did make my husband laugh!!! John has piles too, not near as many as mine & much neater!!!lol…They’re Johns bees!!! I just help with bottling & selling!! I used to do more, but, it is his hobby!!!

  34. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Well ladies, I think it’s time for me to retire for the evening!!!! Nighty night, sleep tight!!! Pleasent dreams!!!!!

    Kitty Chicky Cat says:
