Just in Case


Not being one who sits back idly and lets things happen, I've been working on a plan to bolster the Tenacious S clan's financial bottom line in the event of a dramatic recession. Back in the Great Depression, my grandfather was an out of work painter. Deciding to take his fate into his own hands, he built beehives and then sold honey door to door. I figure if it worked then, hey, that could work now! So this weekend I plan on putting Sweetness and Bink to work painting the beehives. This plan is genius! I'm totally relaxed now. No financial worries at all. We'll just raise bees and sell honey. The whole family can pitch in! There's only one small problem...I'm allergic to the things and Sweetness and Bink cry and run when they see them. Minor glitch.

Still a good plan. Don't let those minor issues get in the way of it.

Funny coincidence--we're taking a beekeeping class in the spring. That's one of the things I hope to be doing within the next 4 years.

My friend Leon worked as a beekeeper for years. He still goes back to Canaidia and does it every summer. I am sure he could give you some pointers.

Although, Dude, do you really want to have to have Scott stab you in the thigh with an epi-pen again.

I watched a doc on the Black Bear commune last week. We could try that — and you can avoid the bees.

They now have a beekeeping area on top of the Royal York hotel in Toronto. If you're afraid of heights too, you may be perfect for a job there!

However, when the bee population really gets depleted and the entire ecosystem is on the verge of collapse, you will be in a serious power position.
