2012 Weekly Challenge #23: The Power of Encouragement

G. K. Chesterton, an English journalist, once wrote, “The really great person is the person who makes every person feel great.”

When two people interact, they are both changed. The change can be for the better, or not. Whether our influence is helpful or hurtful, positive or negative, depends on whether we give each other the gift of encouragement.

Backyard beekeeping keeps neighborhood blooming

Backyard beekeeping keeps neighborhood blooming

SACRAMENTO, CA. - To bee or not to bee.  That's the quesiton that's been buzzing around in my brain for years.  

Should I put a hive of honeybees in my tiny Arden park backyard?  What about my kids, will they get stung? What if a giant swarm decides to call me, "Honey," and chases me into my bed.

What about my neighbor's son, Tommy Phillips, who's terribly allergic to bees? God forbid!  How could I ever forgive myself if one of my bees zapped him into anaphylactic shock! 

Somehow, I just decided to to bite the bullet, put on my bee-bravado and head over to Sacramento's beekeeping supply shop on W street.

I mustered up all kinds of courage.  "I'd like to order a swarm of bees."

"O.K." said Mr. B, the bee man.

O.M.G.  Was that all there was to beekeeping? Just order a swarm and BAM, you've a beekeeper?

The answer is quite simply, "Yes."
