Have you ever considered keeping bees?

    My brother has put together a charity auction for the DEC.


    kit is pretty extensive, two hives, (normally a couple of hundred quid
    each) one of those comedy suits, all sorts of extras, and there is a
    promise to sort you out for a colony or two hidden in the text.
    A hive once established will produce 100lbs of honey in a good year so you will need a sweet tooth.

    Feel free to stick some bids in.
    I can't because I already have as much honey as I can eat,
    (and shill bidding is a crime).

  3. "Have you ever been bit by a dead bee?"
    My uncle used to say this all the time, and I still have no idea what he meant :s
  4. No. Although they can look cute you have to be careful of their sharp teeth, powerful jaws and razor sharp claws.....oh no ...hang on...I'm thinking of bears.

    Was it the bit about the honey that confused you?
