Juicy Juicy People

Several posts back (not long ago) I posted about juicing a bit. The family got intrigued by a series of documentaries on food and health. We started juicing fruits and vegetables and and WAY regular.

Today’s juice was made with red swiss chard, carrot, red apple, 1/4 avocado several almonds, some honey, and a few frozen raspberries. You add some spring water (or filtered) then put the lid on and start mixing it up.

This one was a little sweet and really thick. The glass straw, which is pretty heavy, stood up by itself for the photo. Mrs. SFDaddy can’t drink this stuff because it’s too ‘pulpy’ but the Nutri-bullet is so much easier to clean up than the other super juicer. I’m juiced and cleaned up in just a couple of minutes. The best fast-food you can get.

Do you make smoothies? Are you getting all your veggies in?

H Honey, honey… Buzz Kill

It’s not just all about the honey, but wait for it, honey, honey.

The bees have been hit hard in last few years. This CBS News story covers it well. The ‘skeptical’ interview is amusing, but judge for yourself, that’s not what this post is really about.

Building a Hive. Just add bees.

Since we shouldn’t have chickens or goats, we’re planning on raising bees. Red1 and Mrs. SF Daddy have spent months working with the main bee dude in Georgia learning how to be proper beekeepers. We got a sad email that instead of being able to pick up their bees this month they’ll need to find another source if they want to start this year.

The cute beekeeper suites and hives are all ready to go into production, but the health of our bee colony was compromised and now we’ll hive to wait a little longer. Ouch. Poor little fellers.

While we wait, remember the Archie’s?  Sure, but what’s with the weird dog with the crush on the girl in the kissing booth? And why do the guys look so angry just before they get kissed?

Sugar, honey, honey.
