 Are you are looking for bee information?

I'm losing interest in bees lately and bee-related posts are infrequent these days but at one time I was very involved in beekeeping. Just about every topic has been covered somewhere on this site some time or another. Your best bets for finding ideas are:

 1.) check today's date in previous years     2.) visit the selected topics page
 3.)
search this site for keywords.
              4.) visit BEE-L

 

Note: I have been doing a bit of bee writing lately and there is some mention here and on recent previous pages, but it is mixed in with my daily life.

 

 

Thursday August 1st 2019


 

Today Sunny. High 30. Humidex 32. UV index 8 or very high.
Tonight Clear. Low 12.

I woke up 0744 and got up. The forecast is for other warm day. We're starting off overcast.

Kenzie wrote she is working Sunday rather than Saturday as expected, so I'll go up tomorrow. It turns out she is quite interested in sailing the Crossbow.

I plan to work on the Laser today and if all the parts are here, maybe take that boat up in case it turns out to be more suitable than the Crossbow.  The laser is a much simpler boat and designed to be sailed solo.  The Crossbow is more complex and is best sailed by two.

Fen gave me the various items she had handy and now i have to figure how they fit together and see if anything important is missing.

For some reason I am tired this morning.  Maybe if I get moving, I'll feel more ambitious.

As mentioned previously, I accidentally ran one of my van's remote key fobs through the wash.  I naturally assumed it was ruined and ordered a replacement. Nevertheless, I removed the battery and let it dry a few days. 

Just now, I put it back together and guess what?  It works!  So I spent $25 for no good reason, but now I'll have spares.

I did my daily Duolingo stint.  It is less exciting than it used to be, but I am definitely learning.

I began rigging the Laser and am finding the job is a bit technical, considering what a basic boat it is. I had to come in and consult Google and I found the manual.

I'm still very tired and my digestion is acting up, but I am getting this job done.

I checked with the office and maybe my second charter is in question. We'll know by the end of the day.  Good thing I have not cancelled anything.

I heard from Miguel and he agrees that keeping Baja magic on land until October may be wise and that fits his plans, too.

Mid-afternoon, I was feeling crappy, so took the rest of the day off and watched too much video, then went to bed early.

Friday August 2nd 2019

Today Sunny. Fog patches dissipating this morning. Wind becoming south 20 km/h gusting to 40 near noon. High 31. Humidex 34. UV index 8 or very high.
Tonight Clear. Wind south 20 km/h gusting to 40 becoming light this evening. Low 14.

I'm tired today. I got up at seven or so and had breakfast, then went back to bed and listened to Pimsleur Spanish and dozed until ten.

I promised to go to Gull Lake later today and sail with Kenzie tomorrow, but yesterday, tomorrow's weather was not looking very good for sailing. Today, things look better. (right)

I spent an hour or so on the various weather models and updated my favs on www.Windy.com

Windy is now probably the best wind prediction app on desktop or mobiles.  I still like Weather Underground for weather forecasts, though.

None of them are entirely reliable, although they sometimes come very close, especially during settled weather.  Of course, though, if is during unsettled weather that we need accurate predictions.  In some locations, the predictions are better than others.

I was thinking I need to rig the Laser before taking it up to Gull Lake.  I don't.  I'd just have to break it down and rig it again once there.

I did rig it anyhow and then partially broke it down, loaded it on the trailer and I am ready to go.  It only overhangs about three feet, but looks like more in the picture.

I could have carried it on the roof, but figured that loading by myself might be a chore. The roof racks are rated at 150 lbs and the boat is 130 but there is also the question of distributing the load as the boat is flat and the racks arch upwards.

Saturday August 3rd 2019

Today A mix of sun and cloud. 30 percent chance of showers this afternoon with risk of a thunderstorm. Wind becoming north 20 km/h gusting to 40 early this afternoon. High 25. UV index 7 or high.
Tonight Partly cloudy. 30 percent chance of showers this evening with risk of a thunderstorm. Wind north 20 km/h gusting to 40 becoming light late this evening. Low 10.

I woke up and 0630 and got up and made breakfast. 

Lately, I have been making a morning omelet using egg whites, onion, celery, cheddar and mushrooms when I have them and sometimes broccoli. Although there is excellent nutrition in egg yolks, there is enough chatter about the hazards of eating egg yolks to give me pause, and the whites make a very good omelet..

It is raining.  Of course it is, after all, this is the start of a long weekend. 

Being retired, I don't get weekends, but the masses do and they head for the hills and valleys to experience 'nature', cheek to jowl in campgrounds. long weekends are just an inconvenience for me as the roads are crowded, and some stores close for a day.  Some don't.

The long weekend is one reason I decided to do the two-hour drive to Gull lake drive this morning instead of last night. Friday night driving can be a zoo.  Saturday morning may not be much better, but at least I am fresh, it is daylight, and drivers on the highways are likely to be sober.

I have to gather a few things and hit the road.  I don't look forward to the long drive.  It is actually not too bad once i get on my way, but getting ready and then remembering all the little things I need to buy on the trip is a hassle.

Living fifteen minutes from the nearest store means I either plan ahead and pack a number of shopping items in to a trip. drive to town for trivial items often -- or do without.  Besides taking up time, the cost of gas can add up.

A 171 km trip like this costs me $30, and driving to the nearest town and back, $4.50

It's almost eight and time to get going. With luck, I'll be out of here by nine.

I arrived at Birch Bay at eleven. Jean and Nathan were at the beach.  Kenzie and I drove down to the launch and set up the Laser.  Jean and Nathan came by when we were about ready to launch.  We cast off and sailed around for an hour then came back, loaded the boat and drove home.

Sailing the Laser is different from the Crossbow as the Laser is simple, fast, and tends to heel whereas the Crossbow is more stable. K did well, and I am sure that she can handle the boat except for coming into shore.

Whether I leave one, both or neither boat here remains to be seen and depends on interest.

So, I am here, had a sail, had a snack, and am thinking I'll have a nap.  I still have the final repairs to do on the Crossbow's sheet fairleads but that can wait.

K decided she is not going to be a sailor, so I'll be taking the Laser back. It seems they won't be using the Crossbow either, so I'll be taking it home. 

I had brought the boat up since it has been at my place since 2011 and once fixed up,  I wanted to be sure that Chris did not want it since P-Ss gave it originally to Chris and at one time he was very much into sailing.  Jason and Elijah have shown interest, but I had to clear it with Chris with absolute certainty.

After supper, I tied down the Crossbow and drove home, arriving just at dusk.  I stayed up a while, chopped ingredients for breakfast, and went to bed at eleven.

No Duolingo today, but I did listen to Pimsleur on the way home.

Sunday August 4th 2019

Today A mix of sun and cloud with 30 percent chance of showers early this morning then sunny. High 27. UV index 7 or high.
Tonight Clear. Low 10.

Another bright day.  I'm planning to drive up to get the Crossbow this morning.

Here is a very interesting talk that covers quite a few of the questions I have had in mind ever since I studied physics and chemistry did lab experiments years ago.  Are the constants constant?  When I consider evolution, much of it seems logical, but some seems improbable, verging on the impossible, unless the rules were not always what we experience and measure now.

The Science Delusion - Rupert Sheldrake at TEDx Whitechapel

I left at eight and was there by ten.  I hooked up the trailer and towed the boat home.

I did not do much, but watched some video and generally loafed around until nine and went to bed early.

Today Sunny. High 29. UV index 7 or high.
Tonight A few clouds. Increasing cloudiness after midnight. Low 13.

Another bright day.  I was up from two until four, then slept until eight.

C and I went for a walk at eleven and did the mile.

"What is the success rate for introducing a new queen this late in the season? I did a hive inspection today, no brood frames, no visible queen. ...There are no brood frames, I last checked them two weeks ago, the queen was present, there was some brood frames, It appears that since then the brood frames are filled with honey. I can find no eggs and no larva....However the laying pattern and the hive numbers were not on par with my other hive, even at that stage.. If I can get a queen I will rob a brood frame or two from my healthy hive to prop the poor performer up until I can get a new queen established. "

We are now into August. You have a hive with "numbers were not on par with my other hive, even at that stage" two weeks ago, no brood now, and bees that are aging. Introducing a queen at this point will likely be a waste of time and money. Even if the queen is accepted and lays like crazy, you'll be lucky if they do much and even luckier if they winter. I'd check them for diseases and combine them with the other colony. Your first loss is your best loss.

I have been saying even before the recent meteor misses that the real risk to human life and populations is an asteroid collision, not a slight change in temperature to the upside. Now I am seeing more and more articles along that bent.

Tsunami Risk Caused by an Asteroid

Is it because of the recent unexpected near miss or just the fact that news feeds in their wisdom notice I read an article or two about asteroids and are now force-feeding me more stories with the same theme?  The one above is especially interesting as it gives dates and does not offer the usual assurances and also points out the tsunami risk.

It is hard to tell, but I notice my news pages tend to flood with only a few topics and anything novel is scarce. I find I have to read Zero Hedge or RT.com to get anything provocative.  Of course one must read with a critical mind, but that applies to an mainstream outlet as well. CBC, CNN, Global, Fox, etc. all have a decided slant and omit anything that does not get through their filter.

People demonize Russia and make a big deal of the undeniable fact that Russia has an interest in elections here and everywhere and tries to influence them.  Russia is our next-door neighbour, as is the USA, and nobody seems to make the same points against the US even though the US openly and covertly interferes with governments and elections in countries all over the world.

In fact I believe the Russian Bolshevik Revolution was at least partly encouraged and financed by US and European interests and governments.  Seems fair that such things go both ways.

From Wildboar.net: "As we shall see, however, the planning, the leadership and especially the financing came entirely from outside Russia, mostly from financiers in Germany, Britain and the United States." (Do your own due diligence, but I have heard this from many other sources as well.)

People say things about Putin and assassinations, but seldom mention the many ex-judicial killings that took place under Obama, and Obama was given the Peace Prize despite of that and the messes that took place on his watch.

Speaking of treasures found on ZH, I came across Economica and the articles are an absolute must read.  They are not your usual economic babble. I have yet to decide if I completely accept the arguments, but assuming the data is sound, the charts and analysis presented are quite shocking.  As I say, all the articles are an absolute must read.

I'm burnt out today and disappointed after my visits to Gull Lake. I was looking forward to the kind of fun we used to have.  Whereas we used to have a lot of fun together, lately, everyone seems to be working, or attached to a flat screen, and conversation is limited.

I realise the times have changed, but things are seeming two-dimensional. Is it me? I did have a good game of Fish with Nathan, though, and I thought Kenzie and I were enjoying sailing, but everything lately seems very binary -- Yes or No. No "maybes", or "we'll see" -- and political.  I'm going to have to find some new friends locally.

Barb was here gardening today.

Tuesday August 6th 2019

Today Showers. Local amount 5 to 10 mm. Wind north 20 km/h gusting to 40. High 19. UV index 3 or moderate.
Tonight A few showers ending near midnight then mainly cloudy. Amount 5 mm. Wind north 20 km/h becoming light this evening. Low 11.

It's raining today.

I was up from two until four again, had breakfast, then slept until 0930. I spent the morning reading.  Here is an interesting site:

The world faces ‘pollinator collapse’? How and why the media get the science wrong time and again

Interesting reading. Put on your tinfoil hat.

FacebookCoin is a Trojan Horse of Corporate Oligarchy

I spent the day writing and sleeping.  C and I did walk in the afternoon, but the walk was cut a bit short by a rain squall.

In the afternoon, I slept three hours. I spent the evening writing and went to bed at ten.

Wednesday August 7th 2019

Today Mainly cloudy. Clearing this morning. Fog patches dissipating this morning. High 27. Humidex 29. UV index 8 or very high.
Tonight Clear early this evening then partly cloudy with 60 percent chance of showers late this evening and after midnight. Risk of a thunderstorm late this evening and after midnight. Low 12.

I was up at midnight, had breakfast and went back to bed.

I'm now wide a wake at four and up.  It is pitch dark and 67 degrees F in the house. The days are getting shorter more quickly now and the nights are cooler again. There will be more hot weather, but for now, it is time to light the furnace.

I went down and found the furnace was already on, but at a low pilot setting, so I turned up the heat.

Although today is to be warm, the trend is down.  This has been a cold summer. Regardless of what the MSM parrots, I think we are into a cooling period and I hope it does not get too cool over the next while.

The 'news' is always behind the curve and is largely based on spin and news releases, speculation, diversion, and entertainment provided in just sufficient quantity to provide bait and cover for the advertising.  It was not always like this.

One has to dig a bit deeper for facts and sort through a lot of fluff and misinformation and it is only getting worse as the information channels get clogged with repetitious drivel.

I prefer warmth to cold and most of the world's population lives in the warm regions. Our civilization and population boom is only possible due to the end of the last Ice Age and subsequent warming. What can I say?

I made coffee and another omelet breakfast, and at 0550, the day is just breaking. 

I'm watching The Matrix -- just a bit of it, the awakening.  The rest degenerates into typical Hollywood claptrap.

I took the red pill a long, long time ago and I have been doing a lot of soul-searching over the past few days -- cleaning out the attic, metaphorically.  It's always interesting what one finds in there.

I think I'll go back to bed.

I did, and got up at nine.  The day has brightened.

Calgary beekeepers again...

Photo below. I am looking for advice on a queenless situation.

I haven’t been in my hive for two weeks and my check today shows numerous queen cells, no eggs, and just a few frames of capped brood.

Do I let nature take its course and let the hive requeen itself? Destroy the queen cells and requeen with a purchased one?  What’s the ideal solution here?

Very nice picture. Beautiful cells, each worth $$$.

They can be cut off, but carefully, and one must actually scrape to the midrib if plastic foundation is used, or even cut into the midrib if the foundation is wax to be sure to get the whole cell.

Should a small hole happen in the cell, all is not lost, it can be closed up with wax. Queen-rearing or breeding pros actually sometimes remove the pupa to weigh it and then place it back in and seal it, but don't try this at home, kids, without a lot of study beforehand or unless the cells are surplus.

There was mention of shaking bees off. Not a good idea to shake queen cells or to invert the frames. Just the same, ripe cells can take a bit of handling, including being laid down gently but at some stages, the pupae are vulnerable to being bumped around. Determining what the stage of development is another topic, but they are definitely ripe when the end is being thinned by the bees. At that point, though emergence is imminent.

To answer the second-last question, any queen you raise in a strong healthy hive and which mates locally is likely to be far better than almost any queen you buy, and the risk of mating failure is about the same as the risk of failure in trying to introduce a new queen into a mature hive.

Please, folks, trim the quotes of previous messages to the minimum when you reply. Otherwise the thread gets unreadable. Consider it good etiquette and an IQ test. I do.

I see some developments in the Baja region. So far, no threat.

C and I did the walk. She is much better and in good spirits.  Her little dog enjoys the walks as much as we do.   C found the day very hot, though.  I didn't.

I did some deskwork and watched video.  I'm listening to the Pimsleur Spanish, but have not done Duolingo for a few days.  I find it frustrating sometimes when it marks an apparently correct response wrong or say wrong and does not show me what I had entered.

Thursday August 8th 2019

Today A mix of sun and cloud with 30 percent chance of showers early this morning. Clearing this morning. High 29. Humidex 31. UV index 8 or very high.
Tonight Clear. Low 13.

A decent morning.  C and I did the walk.  B came over and did gardening, so I went out with the saw and cut some branches. It got very hot out and I went in for supper, but after I went out and towed a poplar I had cut weeks ago to the firepot and then stated cutting the deadwood out of a caragana.

Here's some old news.  Resistance has developed many times and many places, but whenever it does, but then that population is diluted and overwhelmed by beekeepers bringing in susceptible stock. 

MITE RESISTANCE NOT ONLY POSSIBLE, IT’S ALREADY HAPPENED

The commercials do it for commercial reasons, because the resistant bees ften have given up valuable commercial traits in adapting.  The the myriads of naive but well meaning newbees bring in bees to "Save the bees". 

I'm pretty sure that these are many of the same folks who expect to "Save the Planet" by doing a whole lot of trendy but ineffective and often destructive things to feel good.  They saw it on TV.

I watched Homecoming on Amazon Prime and went to bed around midnight.

Homecoming is mediocre, but nicely shot and mildly interesting.  The episodes are too short and the credits far too long.

Hmmm. Rotten Tomatoes gives it five stars and IMdB gives it four and here I thought it was a three.

I was in bed at midnight.

Friday August 9th 2019

Today A mix of sun and cloud. Becoming cloudy this afternoon. Wind north 20 km/h gusting to 40. High 24. Humidex 26. UV index 8 or very high.
Tonight Cloudy. 60 percent chance of showers overnight. Wind north 20 km/h gusting to 40 becoming light late this evening. Low 12.

I woke up at 0745 after the best sleep in a while.  Today would have been Ellen's 75th birthday.

It is a dull day and the forecasts don't agree at all closely, but it will be cooler buy all indications.  East wind.

Amazingly, and without trying i find myself at 227.6 pounds and the BG on my most pessimistic meter showing 6.5. Will wonders never cease?

The asteroids -- and increasingly ominous asteroid stories -- just keep coming. Google, like a puppy, knowing they once got my attention, keeps dragging them into my feed.

Asteroid fear has all the makings of a new public mania.  Thank Goodness.  Just in time.  Climate Change dogma was going over the top and getting really dangerous.

I hope this replaces Climate Change fears and the demonstrators stop blocking streets, and turn their attention the heavens.  Maybe instead of insisting we sacrifice the very things that lifted the common people from poverty and gave us freedom, mobility, comfort and health -- and promised that for the rest of the world if allowed to do so --  they can turn their attention to incantations and prayers and work at that full-time.  Benefit?  If, and I say if, they really care, incantations and prayers have a zero carbon footprint unlike the hypocritical elites gathering to decide what the other 99.999% should give up.

The $20million climate change party: How Camp Google racked up an 800-tonne carbon footprint flying 'hypocritical' celebrities to environmental talking shop on 114 private jets to watch Coldplay and hang out on mega-yachts

Only 800 tonnes?  Give me a break.  It was far, far, more than that. Had to be.  Only 1,760,000 pounds? Think about it. How many tons of fuel do those birds and ship carry? Maybe in transport alone.  Maybe.

What the heck anyhow.  I frankly don't believe that carbon dioxide is a problem.  The other products of combustion and the environmental damage done obtaining, refining, and transporting the fuels?  That is maybe another story. Con trails, too, but I hate to say anything bad about con trails. Say it ain't so. I love jets.

Next up:

Asteroid horror: Could massive rock collide with Earth tomorrow? Astronomer delivers view

Asteroids of all shapes and sizes. have been missing the Earth all our lives.  Who knew?

Asteroid: Odds of collision 'higher than people think' says expert

Quote: "Though the distance of 195 million miles it is expected to come within plus its size mean 2006 QQ23 is classed as potentially hazardous, Mr Duantakhu said this was further away than the Moon." 

Who writes this crap anyhow? The sun is 93 million miles away, so 195 million is not even in our neighbourhood.  It is not even far away.  It is far, far away.

And there is more...

In the real world, today a real actual hurricane may be forming near Mexico and Baja Magic!!  As of now, it still looks unlikely to fully develop and go that way, but there are still three months in hurricane season before we are in the clear for another year. Three months down and three to go.

I got back to work thinking about furnaces, then watched more Homecoming.

Yesterday, I said: "Homecoming is mediocre, but nicely shot and mildly interesting. The episodes are too short and the credits far too long."

Well, the two criticisms still stand and I am not liking the Amazon Prime Video app much when casting to my Chromecast on the TV, but the plot is getting more interesting.  It may get my five stars yet.
