Thought for the Week – Curial Diseases

No comments

Pope Francis, as you know, drew up a list of “curial diseases”. He claimed that, “these diseases  and temptations weaken our service to the Lord.
I think a “listing” of these diseases – along the lines of the Desert Fathers who used to draw up such lists – helps us to prepare for the sacrament of Reconciliation,
which will be a good step for all of us to take in preparing for Christmas.” Maybe we could make up our own list.
Certainly the second disease he identifies, is one to watch out for as we begin the run in to Christmas.

2. Another disease is the “Martha complex”, excessive busy-ness. It is found in those who immerse themselves in work and inevitably neglect “the better part”: sitting at the feet of Jesus (cf. Lk 10:38-42). Jesus called his disciples to “rest a while” (cf. Mk6:31) for a reason, because neglecting needed rest leads to stress and agitation. A time of rest, for those who have completed their work, is necessary,obligatory and should be taken seriously: by spending time with one’s family and respecting holidays as moments of spiritual and physical recharging.
We need to learn from Qohelet that “for everything there is a season” (3:1-15).

Thought for the Week – The Kikuyu culture

No comments
The Kikuyu culture does not have the concept of Sunday or a day of rest or an extended period of time such as Advent, Ramadan or Lent.
But what they do have is ceremonies that demand a time of rest. For example the day after a burial, people do not work – even animals are not allowed to go to the fields to graze. Every being stops their normal routine activities for a day. This gives people time to grieve, to express respect, appreciation, and gratitude for the one who has left them to join the ancestors.
Rest also takes place as the community waits for the harvest. During this time young people dance and celebrate as they wait patient for the grain to ripen.  And then they celebrate after the harvest – rather than rushing into the next activity.

Bee Blogs -October 2017

No comments
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds!
November…
The 19th century poet Thomas Hood wasn’t too enamored of November – there are times when I would agree with him. I often feel caught by this transitional stage of the year. It is the time when the last leaves, that is the leaves that managed to withstand the battering of the recent storms, are torn from their lofty perch and drift towards the ground.
November presents opportunities too – ivy, being ever-green, retains its leaves and it is still in flower and the bees are flying at every opportunity they get. I must heft the hives to see if they have enough stores on board.
As we enjoy the fruits of the bee’s labour it is good to remind ourselves that honey production takes lots of hard work  – a bee makes just a twelfth of a teaspoon in its life time ( I am not sure who measured that so carefully or how it was done!)  – a one pound jar represents the nectar of two million flowers. In Ireland we use 5500 tonnes annually.  It is a mix of about 80% sugars, 18% water and 2% minerals vitamins pollen and protein. 70% of sugar is made up of glucose and fructose  and the balance of these two determines whether a honey is clear or set.  Both are equally pure and and additive free. Some honey contains more glucose then fructose and will crystallize quickly e.g. Oil seed rape…honey can be made liquid by standing in warm water for an hour or so.
BEE MEDITATION
I came across a Bee Meditation designed for those who feel they can’t meditate.  I confess I have not tried it yet but here it is.
First, find a place you can be alone for a few minutes – sit comfortably with your back straight.
Scan your body and notice how you are feeling.
Close your eyes and put your thumbs in your ears and gently cover your eyes with your forefingers to block these two senses.
Inhale and on the exhale making a bee humming sound.
Repeat the inhale and hum sequence for ten breaths.
When completed keep eyes closed and rub your hands together to generate heat and place your hands over your face.
Gently open your eyes and remove hands.
Scan your body and notice how you feel.
HOW MANY HIVES?
A question keeps coming up as to how many hives one should have. Most people start with one hive but quickly realize they need a second after the first swarm emerges!
A single hive is never a long term prospect. If you only have one colony and it becomes queen less you have few options. The best way to confirm if a hive is queen less, is to give it a frame of eggs from another hive to see if Queen Cells are created (where will you get them from?). If you only want to a have a single hive you will need at least a Nucleus hive.
It is good to ask yourself how many colonies you want to overwinter. This number can double in the season if you take into account swarm control. In that case you may need up to twice the number of boxes you plan to overwinter. Winter gives us an opportunity to work out how much equipment you need for the coming season.
I try to have a spare nucleus of bees at the end of the season. There is always a colony that needs a boost.  I find that if I take any three colonies, one will be doing well, another will be doing poorly compared to its performance last year, and the third will be a complete puzzle! And by next year they will all have swapped roles! But at least I have options with three hives.  I have a supply of drawn comb, a spare Queen, sealed brood, and even stores if required.  I can unite two colonies if they are weak.
HIVE RECORDS
I have never been very good at keeping hive records. It is a very helpful if you do it. Some useful advice I have used:
First: you must differentiate one hive from another – numbering hives permanently is not a good idea as they get moved during the season so it can get confusing trying to keep track of them. The best solution is to buy numbers and pin them to a the hive and it can then be transferred to other boxes as the queen is moved.  Attach the number to the brood box and you can use the colour of the drawing pins to denote the year the queen was born.
There are options for recording your information for each hive. One is to use a notebook – the advantage of this method is that you can take it home and study it – another way is to put some packing tape on the roof of each hive or on crown board and make notes on it. A third way is to use colony record cards that can be stored on top of the crown board.
Records do not need to be long and some form of shorthand is useful – invent your own abbreviations: Q for queen present, DL = drone layer. QC= queen clipped. No queen cells = X  etc. The list of things you can record is long!
Hive number  Year  Date
Queen
Queen cells
Brood
Stores
Room
Disease
Temper
Supers
A final note: Bees are much better at adjusting to the changing seasons then we are. I tend to do the same things regardless of the time of year and don’t make any real seasonal adjustments to my life style – I sleep the same amount, do the same exercise routine, eat the same food, run around as busy  as ever etc.  As we enter November and deeper into autumn I like this read this advice – it reflects my experience,  ‘At this time the wind blows and the inner universe becomes shaky. It is important at this time to stabilize our routine of eating, sleeping and eliminating. Becoming steady in ideas and convictions may help us to deal with this season of change.”  Makes sense!

Thought for the Week – Rule of Three and Saint Ida

No comments
The Rule of Three and Saint Ida 
Saint Ida, the sixth century Irish saint,
is said to have to taught that there are three things that God loves;
faith in God with a pure heart;
a simple life with a grateful spirit;
and generosity inspired by charity.
The three things he can’t stand are,
a mouth that spews out hatred,
a heart full of resentment
and confidence in wealth.

Thought for the Week – We the People

No comments

Today people are focussed more and more on themselves – with ‘worshiping the self’ – and aligning themselves with likeminded people, in like minded groups.

Face book and other social media leads us to surround ourselves with people like us – people whose views, opinions and prejudices are just like ours.

This identification with ‘my group’ leads to hardening of boundaries, divisive elections and divided societies.
With too much of the ‘I’ and too little of the ‘we’ we become more vulnerable, fearful and alone.

With increased number of immigrants to Ireland we have an opportunity to move out and be challenged by those who are different from us.
But as Rabbi Jonathan Sachs points out many of us are opting to stay in our ‘hotels’. “what has happened in the West is that we have turned society into a series of hotels;
you pay your bills which are your taxes and in return you get a room where you can do whatever you like as long as you don’t disturb the people to the left or right.

The trouble is that no one ever belongs to a hotel so we are losing this concept of society as a place where all sorts of different people come together in the common aim of pursuing the common good.
My favorite phrase in politics is, ‘we the people’ , because it says that we all share collective responsibility for our collective future and that is how things should be.”
