One of the most generous beeks in our local community examined his hives this weekend and found tragedy.

It’s the sort of thing that drops your heart right through your feet, crashing like a pebble on the dirt below.
Immediately the examination of conscience begins like Sister Rose Angela in the 3rd grade quizzing you tirelessly:

NM Beek did the brave thing and wrote about it. For a newbeek like myself, his experience and the naked telling of it are invaluable learning opportunities. 50 lashes aside, nothing hones one’s skill like a few failures and a visit to the bee catacombs.
Besides, he’s not the only one.
