State Fall Convention October 2011

Several things needs to be completed before the Florida State Beekeepers Association Fall Convention, October 26-29, 2011. First I have to get my pickup truck loaded with bottled honey and meet an exercise class to deliver some honey and sell to new customers this morning. Then I have to go get an empty observation hive so I can put another batch of bees along with a queen in it to be ready for some bee talks in the near future.

Next, I have to gather all my Bee College papers: signed Public Service sheets, articles I have written for my major, research papers that I have been working on, documents proving that I am an officer of a bee association and mentor for a couple of beekeepers,  etc.

Then I have to make a guesstimation as to how much this trip will cost and make plans accordingly. Remember, I posted about making this a business, and this is part of it. My business is paying for my education and is part of the expenses of doing business.

In the meantime, I have asked my wife to go with me and I have to figure in her expenses as well. WOW! I am getting into big business now. hehe

I have to go now. I have to start writing my papers. I only have about two months to finish one year’s work. I know, I know… PROCRASTINATION. I was like that in school too. You would have thought that I would grow up in my old age, but it didn’t happen. Oh well, my fault. Anyway, I really do need to go and start getting my notes together so I can type out several thesis to turn in.

Until Next time, please mind the temperature. Keep hydrated and check the water for your bees too. Later….
