I have a few beehives. Each hive gets two 10 frame deep supers. During the spring nectar flow I add shallow honey supers to each hive as required. In June/July I harvest honey and comb from the shallow honey supers. I then leave the hives alone and they have the summer and fall to prepare for winter. I don't feed my bees.
You can have a hive where you don't feed your bees and you don't provide any wax foundation. This will result in the best possible honey and comb (and possibly a healthier hive) however you won't be able to harvest very much.
In our local home-school group we have two families that have a parent who is a public school teacher. We know some families that do a fantastic job home-schooling, and unfortunately we also know some that do a less than stellar job. The same thing applies with public schools, some are good, others not so great.
We know the people involved in the home-school political asylum court case. In Germany, the government has taken kids away from parents who home-schooled. The family fled Germany to avoid that fate. I'm very glad to hear that this family has won in the courts and will be allowed to stay in the US and home-school their children.
No it's not. People could move closer to schools so they could walk, or change their schedule so they could drive their kids. It's about choices and sacrifices.
Now if your comment is "An ever increasing number of people don't want to be inconvenienced by sacrificing for their kids", that I'd agree with.
Absolutely correct, mod this up! It's all about choices and sacrifices. My wife and I chose to live on a single income and home-school our children. It's working out great for our family.
