bees, honey and other sticky subjects

Thursday, March 30, 2006

What's in a name? Hype, perhaps.

Thirteen San Diego bands were asked how they got their name:

Buckfast Superbee: The indie-rock group takes their name from a discovery by Benedictine monk, Brother Adam, whose passion was beekeeping. He crossbred a honeybee that was capable of producing 10 times the amount of honey that normal bees are able to do. The new bee was dubbed the Buckfast Superbee.
Ten times, no less!

US beekeepers might be interested to know that I don't know a soul in the UK who rates Buckfast Bees.
