Dedicated to Our Workers

I'd like to propose a toast, a toast to the most industrious, hard working and beneficial individual on the planet, and no I am not describing our elected officials, but, the humble little bee. So the next time you go out, whether it is to go on a walk, out to eat, have a beverage or just about anything, the modest bee has likely played a roll in your enjoyment. Those flowers that you saw (could have been hops for that matter), the food on your plate (and this includes that burger, for my brontoburger buddy's out there; gotta' remember that the cow ate vegetation prior to being on the plate) and the wonderful beverage you relax and enjoy, please take a moment and thank our faithful sidekick for helping make our lives so much more enriched.

So when someone say's "they're just stupid bee's" please kindly remind them that, w/o them around, we will not be around. If we keep them, they will keep us. So let's all lift a glass, hopefully a killer mead, and make a toast to my little friend. Cheers to all of us.
