Bees

No probs

What did did you want to know?

A few years ago I did bees as a subject when I did farm technology at TAFE, although I can't say I have huge amounts of practical experience. :D

Allotment

Good work!

I don't say too much about what I do at home when I'm at work, most people consider me a bit strange already because of what I do (I'm the OHS&E Manager). :?
