October 14, 2004 Honey Bee Day HONEY BEAUTY RECIPES
In honor of 211,600 beekeepers and 2.63 million colonies of honeybees (yes, we're guessing at those numbers). But, no
matter how many there might be, they produce more than
220 million pounds of honey every single year! More than
enough for your cup of tea.
