So, does anyone know why this design of honey dipper works? It really does reduce the drips and strings of honey - but why?
Here is a Swedish one-page paperdoll:
A Big Congrats to Miss Angola.
Her response to the question in Miss Universe 2011 was perfect.
"If you could change one thing about your body, what would it be?"
"I would change nothing. I have inner beauty, and that's what counts."
I've paraphrased, so google Miss Universe 2011 and you can read more in depth.
Oh yes, and she won the title Miss Universe 2011!!
"If you want to gather honey,
don't kick over the beehive."
There was a great picture of a bee on a bright yellow flower here.
The source I got it from had no credits or copyrights on it.
Apparently it was copyrighted. The photographer just asked me to remove it.
but I hope you enjoy this picture:

Thank goodness for wikipedia!!

This next bee molds are just so perfect!
They are meant for cookies, I believe,
but you can also use soap, clay and other materials.
You should go hug your honey today!
and please, please, please
leave the bees alone, and they will leave you alone.
Bees are an important part of our eco-system.
p.s. it would make a little cute bear pretty happy too
