Wady Imirie Jr., 84, was a master beekeeper who shared his knowledge
through his opinionated and blunt newsletter called the "Pink Pages".
He studied for a graduate degree in atomic engineering and worked on
the atomic bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during
He coined the
popular phrase, "Be a bee-keeper, not a bee-haver."
I have indexed a
verbatim copy of his notes for beekeeping prosperity.

"AFB is the most
serious bacterial disease of honey bee brood and is caused by the
bacterium Paenibacillus larvae"
"It is extremely contagious and spreads easily on contaminated
equipment, hive tools, and beekeeper’s hands.
A beekeeper’s best way to manage AFB is to avoid it."

THE LIFE OF THE BEE
Goldwyn boasted that the greatest living writers were on his team of
authors [at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer] and he would spare no expense to get
them, even if his ideas about their output were rather vague.
One of the literary celebrities he lured to Hollywood was the Belgian
writer Maurice Maeterlinck, winner of the 1911 Nobel Prize for
literature and author of the enormously successful La Vie des abeilles
(The Life of the Bee).
When Maeterlinck arrived, fearful of his ignorance of motion-picture
technique, Goldwyn reassured him: "I know you don't understand picture
technique. That doesn't matter. All I want you to do is just go away
and write your greatest book over in the form of a scenario."
A few weeks later Maeterlinck returned with a manuscript. Goldwyn was
delighted and retired beaming into his office, taking the manuscript
with him to read. A couple of minutes later he rushed out again
screaming. "My God," he yelled, "the hero is a bee!"
