    Might get to myself later, but first I'll give a progress report for my honeybee colony. (The colony is a great way to stay connected to nature; also can serve as a canary of sorts).

    I currently give the entire colony photobiomodulation once per week (670nm + 830nm, see <https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0166531>).

    Also have made a DIY magnetico for the hive (made out of about 100 ceramic block magnets cut into thick books).

    Results so far are good! > ~50 lbs of honey.

    The colony started small (size = 5 frames) on June 6, but already had doubled to about 12 frames and was ready to swarm by June 26 (!). All this with no feeding of the colony!
