I am Stephen. I live in Bristol, UK. I decided to shorten my this: Wildlife, haiku, travel, streetart, psychogeography and my family. Not necessarily in that order.

  1. Ha! This made me smile. As a former bee-keeper (at least 40 years ago) you created a memory Stephen. Thanks for the memories. P.S. I used to keep bees in Leigh woods and in Henbury at Higgins farm on station Road. later when I moved to the USA I kept them in Hoffman estates Illinois. In those days we processed about 2 tons of honey a year which we sold to health food stores. I gave it up in 1974 due to allergic reactions to bee stings.

      1. Since it is in the family I should mention that I was a Dadant authorized reseller. Our company was named the Honey House at Pooh Corner. At our peak we had about 80 hives. In the pre=season much of our income was derived from pollinating services for the cucumber growers in Illinois. My partner by the way was a Dutchman named Piet Sweet. Very iodneus.

      2. I love names that work like that. I once knew a man who was the chairman of the institute of fisheries management, his name was Sir Hugh Fish ( often said Sir HUGE Fish).
