A Washington, D.C. rooftop is now home to thousands of bees, thanks to restaurant Founding Farmers, which owns one of the nation’s largest urban beehives. And while the chefs get all the honey, researchers study the bees.

They had me at ‘cornbread with honey butter.’

This was my final birthday present to finally arrive.

I contacted Samantha Bird of urban aviary, and asked if she would be interested in doing a custom ring for me. I gave her some ideas, and she was immediately excited. Said she had an idea of what I’d love, and she would give me a great price on it because she wanted to use it in promos for her jewelry shop. So I agreed to give her some artistic license, and she got started.

Well, it finally arrived yesterday, and I couldn’t be happier. It is gorgeous, and it is truly one-of-a-kind. The stone is Prehnite. In spirituality, Prehnite is supposed to connect will to heart, helping you to attain the highest level of good. It’s supposed to also help in seeing the truth of things, and to assist in meditation.

Whatever it might be good for, it’s mine and I love it.
