My mother sent me this article today...from Utah County Beekeepers Association where Michael Bush flew in to speak with 120 people.
"I've had lots of hobbies over the last 40 years, but beekeeping is the one that has kept my interest," said Bush. "As soon as I felt like I had learned what I could about other hobbies, I would lose momentum. Bees will always give you a sense of learning and a desire to get better and better at what you are doing. Many writers have called this 'bee fever.'"
That about sums up exactly how I feel about my other hobbies.
