    Did anyone watch this absolutely brilliant success story on ABC last night (Australian Story).

    These Aussies or Hippies:) from Byron Bay raised over $5.2M US largest sum ever outside of US.

    Fascinating story, more honey for everyone now:)

    In February the Andersons launched a revolutionary beehive system that lets you to harvest honey on tap without disturbing the hive, on the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo. The father and son team wanted $US70,000. It took just less than eight minutes for to reach their target.

    If you're allergic to bees, do you break out in hives?
