Hi,

My local newspaper is holding a contest and giving away family packs of tickets to our county fair. *To enter we were asked our 3 favorite things to do, with our family, at the fair. *My number one favorite thing to do with the family was "Hang out with the beekeeper at sunset." *I didn't pre-plan this, with this post in mind. *It really is our favorite thing to do.

At sunset, we are all a little tired from a long full day and the beekeepers building is a quiet place on the west side of the fair grounds. *Its amazing to watch the bees huddle towards the setting sun. *The beekeeper is always really nice and answers our kids questions. *Its a great place and time to be.

So, here is were you can help. *If you appreciate the shout out and the sentiment. *Please follow this link, use the FIND feature and search for 'beekeeper' and give me your vote. {UPDATE: Someone actually copied my responses. Very odd, mine is the first 'beekeeper' in the list next to my name, which is Jon.-- Thanks}

Ends 7/31

Thank you, thank you!!!
From me and the family

Done. I'm 373. Hope you win and have a great time. While you're "hanging out with the beekeeper at sunset"-ask him how you can get started as a beekeeper. It's fun and rewarding.

Now you're 387. It's in your pocket.
Have a great time at the fair and while you're there,tell the beekeeper that the men/women of the craft stick together. :yahoo:

UPDATE: Thank you all so very very much. I made a big jump overnight and I have beekeepers to thank for it!!! For my part I want to run in a clean and fun contest. Please make sure every vote is legal. I contacted the newspaper earlier in the week when things looked a bit wonky. They said "We have safeguards in place now. If someone's cheating, we'll know, and we'll be able to disqualify them."

Thank you beekeepers for doing all you do!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you. This is basically a shameless bump. 1 hr to go before the contests closes at midnight pacific time and I'm just 50 points behind. If there are any more beekeepingforums votes out there willing to participate I'd appreciate a swarm. :) (bee joke, this is fun) Legal votes only please. I don't want to get disqualified.

This may raise your spirits. (see attached) No word from newspaper yet. I sent them a happy thank you note this morning with the screen shot @12:11AM that showed a dead tie, also asking if I got STACY HARRIS 77 plagiarism votes :) Its odd that the website is still accepting votes. Not sure whats going on yet. Will let you all know when I hear. I have a feeling they are scratching their heads too. This has been a blast, thank you all!!!!

Win or Lose I have one thing to say;

I am impressed by the manners you have shown on the bee boards.
