Sunday October 15th, 2000 
Mainly sunny. High 14.

The day began foggy. I had planned to go to Calgary, but decided against driving.

By early afternoon, the fog had cleared off and I went out to look at some yards of bees.  They seemed quite heavy, which was reassuring, and the bees were flying to scout the drums, which were empty.  This seemed a good sign, since other yards are still feeding.

I called Meijers and decided to go over to get some syrup they had on hand since we are a little short.  I still had supplies on the truck for Blue Sky and wanted to get that delivery done, so I loaded a few more things and headed over.  We visited and had supper, then went to Blue Sky.  Frieda had just returned from Medicine Hat and seems eager to get the protein patties made.  We had coffee and a visit, then Sam and Joe & Oene & I went out to unload.

I have decided to reduce or eliminate the pollen in the patties, since we have very little, and it is mostly an attractant.  Sugar is cheaper and we have lots, so the new formula uses more sugar and more yeast, but less soy and less or no pollen.

After the unloading was accomplished, I drove home.  It was a beautiful moonlit evening and foreshadows the amazing nightscapes we will soon enjoy as winter descends upon Alberta.

Tonight: Partly cloudy. Low zero.
Normals for the period: Low minus 1. High 13.

It is amazing how much grief inserting this post into this page (I had the whole text included here originally).

First, I got criticized for my attitude, and secondly FrontPage 2000 revolted.  Apparently there must be a sequence of characters somewhere in the post that FP servers interpret as a control code and which triggers a revolt in FrontPage servers.  I had cut-and-pasted it into this page and experienced unexplained grief for about a month thereafter.

I have spent at least 15 hours, off and on, figuring this out.  At least it inspired me to work over my system and clean up files and the registry.
