  1. Couple more days for me in my mobile isolation bubble. Checking last of the splits made for mated queens, dropping feed frames down in to brood boxes and generally getting bees ready for the winter sleep. Expecting the covid-19 downtime to be longer than 4 weeks
  2. Hi Frazz Hi Wayne and Joe As you mention commercial beekeeping is an allowable operation during the Covid-19 self isolation period. There is an online form that needs completing to register for this privilege. If you can answer YES to the first two questions you don’t need to fill it in. We did just to be sure. It’s pretty a long way of proving you’ll keeping yourselves and public safe. Which I’m sure you’ll agree is very important. Follow the prompts where required. https://www.mpi.govt.nz/covid-19-essential-primary-sector-service-registration/ Stay safe
  3. No I haven’t pursued it since your txt. Still interested though. It’s a value add idea have... youve still got my details aye? Not sure about dew in Bourbon but definitely a product from the still.
  4. No, the guitars are just a hobby. I like a play all sorts but my favourites are the Shadows era, and on the flip side I also love a real grungy rock song. Currently in the shed making up a batch of hand sanitiser..🤔🤣
  5. I think some people have a weak constitution. I average 5 strong cafe style coffees a day and often have one before going to bed. I never have an issue going to sleep. The key to that is to work hard and play hard. My wife can’t believe that I can be snoring and in a deep sleep within 10 minutes of my head hitting the pillow😆
  6. You can move to another “less risk” fund. Conservative fund, ask your KiwiSaver provider to change or if your bank app allows it you can manage it yourself.
  7. Yup especially if your KiwiSaver was on the aggressive rate, it would have taken a huge hammering. i just checked mine, I’m on conservative and lost just over $100 this week. Another 19 years until 65 rolls around so time to dabble in more riskier investments.
  8. Register as a beekeeper and register your apiary. Get an experienced beekeeper to disease check and ascertain food store for your hive. Correct food store shortage if required. Buy an appropriate varroa miticide. cross fingers and toes for spring and purchase additional equipment, boxes and frames etc.
  9. Have a wander around and see if there are aphids on it, that could be the source. On that note of Blackberry......there seems to be an abundance of it the Length of SH1, it’s like there hasn’t been any focused herbicide use on it for a couple of years 🤷‍♂️
  10. Any wild blackberry around? I’ve had a dew from it before and very thixotropic.
  11. I did that course nearly 30 years ago. Approved Handler/Growsafe thingy. So yes, been around for several years.
  12. Hi. Sorry I haven’t been manufacturing for the past year as I am time short due to other commitments. All the best with your project. Daniel
  13. And sending some beech dew to the Waikato to a guy with an idea for value add.....🤔🤣😉
  14. I consider myself quite fortunate to live in a town where the (at the time we bought) cost of homes was low. We have a 1/4 acre section 1950’s home and close to 100m2 of garaging and storage. Over the past 12 years of ownership and 11 years of beekeeping I have managed to fill them with all sorts of “stuff” linked to the habit of beekeeping. 😄
