October 23, 2009 is a beautiful fall day with sunshine peeping in and out of the clouds. The bees are flying and the yellow jackets are on the prowl. I got stung by a yellow jacket yesterday while I was cleaning the feeders. The yellow jackets will not live through the winter but they are eating as much protein (bees) as possible now. They are lurking outside the hive looking for the sick and weak bees. When people say they got stung by a bee, usually they got stung by a bad old yellow jacket.
Today we had two new Bee Venom Therapy patients. Natalie is 84 years old and as cute as a button. She and her daughter came to try to get relief from arthritis. They had gone to the chiropractor and had physical therapy and wanted to try BVT as a complimentary treatment. I hope they get great relief from their arthritis pain. I was happy they were open minded and willing to try something new.
Erika came over also, she is suffering from MS, and has had a lot of relief from her aches and pains. Sarah came by to help with the web site. We are getting our products ready to post in time for Christmas. We hope to have lots of stocking stuffers to choose from.
We got a new baby girl in our family yesterday. Olivia was born at 5:58am and weighed 7lbs. 1oz
Vicky and Reese (my nephew) are doing fine. Vikki and Laurice and proud grandparents for the first time. They are over the moon for this little girl. We welcome her into the family.
I am off to Sam's to buy another 50 pounds of sugar... I will feed the girls for a while till they get plenty of food stored up for the winter.
