Bee T-shirts for FREE!

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about The Plight of the Honeybee and talked about ways to help prevent their dying off. Well, Haagen Dazs has sent some t-shirts my way to give out to readers. All you have to do is leave a comment with your favorite use for honey! Could be as a topper on ice cream, could be in cookies, could be in your tea – whatever it is, let us know. We will randomly pick a winner on Friday (the fourth of July) – so enter before 12:01am on July 4th and you could win one of the four shirts we have to give away!
