Start the New Year with Miksha (the Norwegian Band!)

Yikes! If you listen to the clip above, you are braver than I. The video is from the metal band Miksha, which claims it named itself for me. Perhaps. Their website said “Miksha is named after the Bad Beekeeper who developed poisons for the American Army in Vietnam.” Well, they spelled my name right, anyway. And that clip is your New Year’s gift from me. It is a chance to expand your cultural exposure.

We are already halfway through a new month, and into a new year. It’s winter in Calgary. The bees are resting. It is not as if beekeeping takes a holiday in Canada during the winter. Well, actually, it does. But writing this blog shouldn’t, though for a month I’ve written nothing. I would say that I have been really busy with pressing issues, but then it sounds like this blog is not important. It is, at least to me. The truth is, I have been on another secret mission for the government, similar in urgency to the one that got me noticed by that heavy metal Norwegian rock band – here is the background to that story. Anyway, I’ll post every week or two from now on, even if it is nothing much more than a quick note that claims I am still alive. Sort of like this one.
