Honey and the radio

Sunday, April 4th, 2010

Whenever I think of honey I think of Hello Pretty City listeners. A few years ago I mentioned on the air that for the first time in my life I had allergies and wasn’t feeling so well. A couple of listeners called and told me that I might feel better if I ate honey that was produced nearby. Yesterday I bought raw alfafa honey and just now I poured it into the honey dispenser. I feel better even just looking into its glow! I am very thankful for those listeners who called so long ago!
