Did you know that tulip poplar honey doesn't granulate? I didn't, but that's what the "experts" say. I hope they're right because I just bottled a lot of it and put it in the cold part of the honey house. We've got another bottling tank on its way (larger) and I wanted to get this one cleaned out and switched to Spring honey for the Christmas rush.
Last weekend was so pleasant. Perfect October weather. On Saturday evening Jayne and I got to leave the kids at Grandma's and attend a wedding reception at Clippers Stadium (Huntington Field). They opened the glass overhead doors and we sat at big round tables in the cool night air overlooking the field. What struck us as funny was the company we randomly chose, as there were no seating arrangements. Clockwise from my left, the careers went like this:
General Practice Doctor - Dermatologist - Investment Banker - Banker - Chemistry Professor - Material Chemist - General Practice Doctor - Radiologist - Beekeeper - Beekeeper
Ha Ha... Jayne said sometimes you just have to gloat a little...
On Sunday it was just too nice to pass up a hike. You can see that the last of the goldenrod and purple aster is still in bloom.

The Circleville Pumpkin Show, "Greatest Free Show on Earth," came to town this week:
Somehow it never ends up being much of a free show.

Whoa! Who put that sticker there? Liberal bees with their socialist agenda have no place in my Dad's backyard (Romney - Ryan country).
I just hope that they are fiscally conservative with their honey.
Winter is coming!
