Ooh la la

Christian Science Monitor has a nice piece on the beekeeping of Jean Paucton, a former props man for the Paris Opera House. Inspired by a colleague who kept fish in the basement of the Opera House, Jean decided to put five hives on top. He harvests an impressive 100 kg each year and has the usual sort of little challenges:

“When neighbors see a hive they get stung, and when they don't see a hive they don't get stung,” he shrugs. “That's how neighbors are.”
