Did You Know That...

On a clear day in New York City, NY, a person standing atop the Empire State Building can enjoy a spectacular view up to 200 miles in any direction. The building was built between 1930 and 1931 and is 102 stories high. Unfortunately, people, such as myself, will never be able to enjoy it. Having a very healthy fear of heights, 102 stories high is about 98 stories too high for me!

A typical healthy beehive can produce 45 to 100 pounds of honey per year. Yummy! The colour and flavour of the honey extracted from the hive depends on the type of flowers the honeybees visit. There is a huge variety of flavours and colours in honey bought at specialty honey stores. Many stores will even allow you to taste the various honeys before purchase. Grocery-store-purchased honey is usually a mixture of different honeys blended specifically to achieve that taste most people have come to associate with honey. And remember...natural, raw, unpasteurized honey is the best!
