Honeyed Almonds

I have been making my own honeyed almonds for years now... and the way I make them I usually get a very shiney looking almond, something like this one I have been trying to get them to look and taste more like this one How do you reckon they do it? I have tried roasting the almonds after they have been soaked in honey... I've tried adding brown sugar when they are cooling... Im just not sure what to do... Do you think its the type of honey used? I usually use a clear runny type... Hmm... let me know :) Cheerio Jay

Honey, I Shrunk The Kids

So my office goes –ALL OUT- for Halloween. Everyone dresses up, each team chooses a theme, and decorates as if they’re filming a blockbuster movie. There are prizes, sure, but everyone just wants bragging rights for a year. In the 3 years I’ve worked here, my team has won 2 out of 3, and I’ve won best costume at least once (had to throw that out there; bragging rights, ya know). Anyway, this year my team and I really want to do Honey, I Shrunk The Kids theme with a huge ant, huge grass, etc. But I am unable to find any instructions or similar projects online to help with ANY of these things. I am needing: instructions and/or ideas. Get creative for a moment and give me some ideas that we can use to turn our gray, cubicled area into a HISTK set. Thanks in advance!

Honey Bee Hive Box Joints Template

Do any of you woodworking wizards or experts know how to make a box joint template. I need to replace many of my Honey Bee Hive Supers (boxes) due to Bears, time & weather. The wood is pine and about seven-eighths thick , five and three quarters tall or high, twenty inches long for the front and back, the sides are sixteen and one quarter long by five and three quarters tall or high. This forms a box that holds ten extracting frames for the honey in combs. It weighs forty pounds when full of honey comb wax and honey. I like this size because it doesn't brake your back like the standard one that weigh in at eighty pounds when full! Although I use both sizes. Any ideas how to make this template will be deeply appreciated. I also have a multiple dado blade setup, so I can cut a pretty wide dado at one pass on the table saw. Thanks. Triumphman.

Apparently no direct relationship between Brix and water content???

Could anyone explain to me why there is not a direct relation between the Brix scale and the water contents scale on my honey refractometer? At the low end of the Brix scale (60-70), the match is perfect, but not at higher Brix. I suspect this has something to do with the fact that there is a non-linear relationship between sugar concentration and density. It would, however, be very nice to know the proper theoretical background... :-) Any help will be greatly appreciated, as I have been unable to find any information at all on the web. Thanks!  Best regards, tome

Spool of uncut drinking straw tubing, anyone know of a source?

Im designing a system that would fill tubing with a syrup and then sealing the tube off into segments. Honey straws are an example. What Ive seen is people individually filling drinking straws and sealing each end. I think filling a long coiled tube and sealing it into segments is more efficient. Sort of sausage style if that makes sense. I know how everything will work except where to get a very long piece of drinking straw. Or if anyone has a recommendation for a tube I can use in place of this I would take the advice. Im not dead set on drinking straw, its just what everyone seems to use. Ive seen vinyl tubes online but those would impart a chemical flavor so I want to stay away from them.

Will leaving a rhombus clearer board on for more than 12 hrs lead to the super filling up again?

Hi , I have placed a rhombus clearer board above the super, yesterday. After inspecting It today I have found that the super was nearly empty , with about 40 bees remaining. Thinking the best , I decided to leave it on , but have now read that if you leave it on for more than 12 hours the bees with work out how to get in again. Should i take it off now or in the morning?

K'NEX AAC Honey Badger .300 Blackout

Hey guys! Well, here I am with another K'NEX gun that I am not sure if I will finish or not. It is (as seen by the title) an AAC Honey Badger. It is not fully finished yet, and, like I said, I am not sure if I will finish it or not, but it is a start all the same. Maybe you guys can help point out some inconsistencies in my version of the pictures of the real Honey Badger that I provided...? I have no sights on the gun, BTW, and have yet do decide how to implement sights. Features: - Really bad telescoping stock - Comfortable grip - Tight magazine setup To be honest, I am not very enthusiastic as I thought I would be about this gun, as you can see by my list of features. Again, any help from you guys would be great! Enjoy! -The Red Book of Westmarch )

There are no trees pressent, only some low bushes and a lot of flower patches all over the place. Can somebody enlighten me with some info on this subject?

INSTRUCTABLE COMMUNITY! see if one of your instructables can help someone in a developing nation. Building for a good cause!

I saw this website called honeybee, Anyone who likes to solve problems using everyday things or inventing new things. Check this out This is a list of problems people have in developing nations they need help building constructing and recycling tools and machines to help them in there everyday lives, I have read them and i think the inscrutable community could really help there cause. take a look see if you made something that they need. http://www.sristi.org/hbnew/seeking_solution.php video about it http://www.ted.com/talks/anil_gupta_india_s_hidden_hotbeds_of_invention.html here's there about us   WHO ARE WE? Honey Bee Network is a crucible of like-minded individuals, innovators, farmers, scholars, academicians, policy makers, entrepreneurs and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). A Network having presence in more than seventy five countries, what has made Honey Bee Network tight knit and efficiently functional is its philosophy. Honey Bee signifies a philosophy of discourse, which is authentic, accountable and fair. The Network has been woven around three basic ideals. The Network believes that a knowledge system in order to become sustainable has to be both just and fair. Hence, while collecting knowledge from the knowledge holder, the Network has made it a norm to acknowledge the knowledge provider with name and reference, if otherwise not desired by the knowledge provider. This particular practice has come handy in protecting the IPR of the knowledge provider. In the second place, the source of knowledge i.e. in the case of Honey Bee Network, the traditional knowledge holders and grassroots innovators must be acknowledged, if otherwise desired so by the knowledge holders themselves. Finally, any proceed that accrues from the value addition of local traditional knowledge and innovation; a fair and reasonable share must go back to the knowledge holders. These have been the guiding principles of the Network, which are fundamental to the functioning of the network and constitute the major non-negotiable for the Network. WHAT ARE WE DOING? Over the last sixteen years or so, the Honey Bee Network has lived the very spirit of the philosophy that it holds so dearly. Moreover, the actions that have followed the philosophy have grown and matured over a period of time and their trajectory of maturation has been based upon the strong realization of the essence of the philosophy. ‘Honey Bee’ Newsletter, the creative mouthpiece of the network, is published in seven Indian languages (Hindi, Gujarati, Tamil, Kannada, Telugu, Malayalam and Oriya) other than English. The very logic tells that any documentation and dissemination of local and traditional knowledge and innovations in English, certainly connects us globally but alienates locally. Living out the concern, the regional language versions reach out to the thousands grassroots knowledge holders, who otherwise would have been alienated from the benefits of knowledge, they themselves contribute in the first place. Acknowledging the very source of the traditional knowledge, the Honey Bee Newsletter and its regional versions carry stories of the local ingenuity with the consent of the knowledge holder. Another source of acknowledging the local genius has been preparing the database of the traditional knowledge and grassroots innovations and Honey Bee Network, over the last twenty years has documented more than 1,00,000 ideas, innovations and traditional knowledge practices. Honey Bee, true to its metaphor, has been the source of pollination and cross-pollination of ideas, creativity and grassroots genius, without taking away the nectar from the flower for ever.

The yeast in my mead is not creating any Co2. What should I do?

I've been brewing mead at home for a couple of months now. I started a 1 gallon batch of mint and honey mead about an hour ago and there is no activity going on in it. The yeast looks like it is swimming around but there is no carbonation bubbling to the top. I used dry active yeast which is what I've used for other batches over the past months. Q1: Should I wait until tomorrow and check it? Q2: Should I add another pack of yeast to it? Q3: Referring to Q2, will adding any more yeast to it cause a yeasty brew in the final product?

How to assemble a low voltage, variable speed electric motor in a school laboratory, and how to measure its efficiency?

For a high school physics project, I am doing an investigation on how does the density of the transmission fluid affect the efficiency of a fluid coupling. I am planning to use honey based transmission fluid with varying amounts of water to dilute it, and alter and manipulate its density. For the turbines (blades of the fluid coupling) I need to construct a low voltage electric motor with variable speeds using materials easily available in a school laboratory (though I can use some other source for my materials as well).  I need to measure its efficiency. and by that I mean to actually compare the input and output energies (perhaps their voltages) using a low inertia dynamo as my output generator.

How do I thin out 2-part epoxy?

I'm wanting to make some micarta-like material, using two-part epoxy and paper. I've done a test run, and the material was rigid after it had cured for a few days, but didn't cut like I hoped it would, because the epoxy didn't penetrate the paper. Part of the issue was that the paper was coated, but I'd also like to thin out the epoxy some so that it will soak into the paper better. I'm inspired in this endeavor by these two instructables: https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-homemade-micarta/ https://www.instructables.com/id/Mokume-Kireji-DIY-Woodgrain-Composites/ The epoxy I'm using is 3M Scotch-Weld DP-190. The label says it contains epoxy resin, polymeric diamine, kaolin, and carbon black. The complete MSDS is here. This is what I'm using, because it's what I have. Got a case of these two-tube dispensers cheap at a yard sale. :-) So, what can I use to make this more liquid? Right now the consistency is a little bit thicker than honey. It doesn't spread out when applied to paper, and doesn't soak in at all. My limited knowledge suggests that toluene, listed on the MSDS, might work, but I'm hoping for something a bit less volatile. I'm aware that whatever I do is likely to extend the curing time, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

What do you normally eat for breakfast?

I'm sorry, I just can't stop talking about food. :PI was reading the latest issue of Saveur magazine last night and this morning, and it has to be one of the most interesting things I've ever had the pleasure of reading. It's all about breakfast, which is quite frankly the most important and wonderful meal of the day. The magazine had a number of different articles about what people eat for breakfast all over the world, in addition to recipes for all these magical foods I'd never heard of. :DI typically don't have much time these days between work and school, so my breakfast is usually whole wheat toast with butter and raspberry, orange or apricot preserves, maybe some sunflower butter. I almost always have tea in the morning - I think my favorite is coconut chai at the moment. If I'm really short for time I'll have my standard soy milk and mega fiber hippie cereal. :)If I do have time though, I'll make biscuits and gravy or sometimes Jace will make pancakes. I've only made french toast once with friends, but I'd like to get that going more often. I also really like to heat up different soy sausages and have those with toast and hot cereal. I also like having hot multigrain cereal with apples cut up in it, with cinnamon and honey. That will never get old.So what do you eat for breakfast? I want to know all about it!

What natural substance can I use that has a tacky feel to put on my dogs paws that is non toxic to dogs?

My dog had a spinal op,and was recovering nicely. I have polished floorboards that are an absolute nightmare for him to walk around on. The list of remedies I have tried are endless. Dog socks,boots,shoes,mats,balloons etc.I have spent a small fortune with no luck. We have non slip mats around but I can't cover the whole house in rubber mats. I've trimmed his nails short,and the fur between his toes,but I've noticed his paw pads are really dry. I'm trying to formulate something that I can put on his paws that has a tacky feel. I'm no scientist but I've wracked my brain to come up with a solution that is easy to make and not toxic. It has to be something that doesn't taste fantastic because he'll lick it off. As a sample I tried some tacky hair wax..which just gave him a little grip,but it's not what I'm looking for. I know beeswax is sticky,but i think it needs to be mixed with something.I had a feel of surfboard wax,but it didn't have enough tackiness for what I want.I know honey is sticky but don't think I want that all over my floor.Also pine sap is sticky too. I guess i'm looking for something that feels like those silicone non slip dots you can buy that is safe for animals? Any suggestions?

How to take care orphan kittens? Answered

I had a cat who died after giving birth.. she had a complication and after 2 surgery she died and left 5 kittens in my care. I gave them Lactol, its powder milk for puppies and kittens but they get diarrhea. So i give them pedialyte to calm their tummy and sugar+water and gel vitamins (nutri-plus gel). They are 3 weeks old now, going to 4 weeks in 2 days. And I need suggestion on what to do next. What to give them. Should I try giving them kitten food or something? because I think the milk only get them diarrhea again. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Ok I've add pics of the kittens all big now. Only 2 of them survive after hard struggle. One is a female tortoiseshell (Arathea) and the other one is a male dark grey tabby (Ceyx). There's pic of them playing at the backyard. Very very active kittens, almost a handful but I'm happy they are growing up healthy. One of the things I would like to share is.. the vet told me you can feed baby food/baby porridge to sick cats or kittens if milk is not an option or if they have diarrhea. You can give a red rice porridge for 3-6 month old babies to animals. You can also add a little honey to the mix. Red rice porridge have high vit B which is good for cats and kittens. I hope this can be useful. http://www.waytodeal.com/public/images/buy/large/20100107174321_promina_6.png
