Enjoy this hypnotic video of a honey harvest in the desert.
IMGURian JohnDeCaux shares some wonderful DIY beekeeping footage documenting his dad's honey harvesting process.
“To harvest honey, the wax cappings are removed with a honey paw before the honeycomb is placed in the extractor.
“The honeycomb is then placed in revolving baskets where the spinning movement throws out the honey by centrifugal force.”

Firing up the engines each morning and attacking the day with gusto and purpose can feel like a mighty tall order sometimes. We’ve all been there. But on those sluggish, why-don’t-I-just-stay-here-in-bed-all-day kinda days, it might just take a rational, calming, reassuring nudge to make it happen.
