Sometimes you hear a song which makes you smile. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing. “Ventura Highway” by America does that for me.
It’s almost the end of the bee-year: I’ve taken the Bermondsey Street Honey off the hives. The MAQS varroa treatment is on the hives. So while I hit the road on holiday (dodging any hot hives of “alligator lizards in the air” mentioned in the song lyric!), I just wanted to broadcast that carefree, wind-in-my-hair optimism to all you Apis apostles out there.
