A tour for Academia Caesar Chavez this morning. Delightful 4th graders with lots of questions and energy. I think they liked looking over the railing into the fountain court about as much as anything. The talent level in the docent corps always amazes me. The two women docents who shared this tour with me were, respectively, a professor of New Testament at Luther Seminary and a retired professor of epidemiology from the Public Health department at the UofM.
After the tour I had lunch at Keegan’s Pub with Frank Broderick. He gives me the leftover corned beef after his St. Patrick’s day meal for the Woollies, but he forgot on Monday. He had a corned beef sandwich for lunch and I had bangers and mash. The bangers were much smaller than the ones I remember from England.
The first order this season from Mann Lake Bee Supply came yesterday. It had eleven hive bodies and seven honey supers. Kate has a hive body and a honey super already put together. A hive body is deeper than a honey super since it contains frames that house brood, the queen and the nurse bees. A honey super is about half the size to fit the honey frames.
