    At our beekeepers association meeting tonight, there was a surprise birthday cake for a charter member of the association. She recently turned 90 years old and still has hives in her yard. She's sweet, friendly, humorous and helpful. I hope she has many more birthdays.

    Yep. There's a guy that goes down and helps her. She's an inspiration for us all. :)

    Wonder how old she was when she started? And also how many times has she been stung?

    Many years ago I was informed that, of all professions, entomologists (and what are beekeepers if not practicing entomologists?) have the longest life expctency. :yahoo::clapping:
    It's always nice to hear about "proofs" to that information.
