News and Such

So I wanted to do a quick update before I head off to my next class, and in this update I wanted to bring to light two things: an amazing article about honeybees remembering faces that was referred to me by a friend and the up coming meetings in the South Jersey Beekeeping Association.

I won’t summarize the article so you have the pleasure of reading it yourself, but according to a new study, honeybees use the same technique as humans do to recall faces they’re seen before. Interesting…

So head over to The New York Times and check it out!

The second thing I wanted to talk about is the New Jersey state honey show will be talking place this Friday. Judging will be held that day for all those entering.

If you would like to see all the entries on display, you may come anytime between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, February 8, 9, and 10. The entries will be packed up (for transport to the state meeting on Febuary 13) and the display cases removed to storage around noon on Thursday, February 11, 2010. So if you plan on visiting, the display area will be located at the State House Annex, 3rd Floor, 125 W. State Street, Trenton, NJ. There is limited visitor parking on Garage Level 1

The NJBA also has its winter meeting Saturday, February 13th, 2010 at the New Jersey Museum of Agriculture 103 College Farm Road North Brunswick, NJ 08902. They have a whole day planned out. If you desire the full e-mail with everything that is happening that day just leave a comment asking for it and your e-mail and I’ll forward it to you.

I’ll post again soon!
