After his sister gave him 15,000 bees as a Christmas present, Dave Doroghy developed a fascination for the insects. Despite many mishaps – like getting stung multiple times, loosing bees to wasps and mites, even losing the queen bee twice – he continues to raise bees and blogs about it at houseboathoney.com. Now, he has published Show Me the Honey: Adventures of an Accidental Apiarist (Touchwood $25). Doroghy lives on a houseboat outside of Vancouver.
