Yesterday was a beezy day for the Omaha Bee Club. With only a handful of volunteers, some heavy equipment and plenty of gumption however, we still managed to

Omaha Bee Club members play with Mason bees too.
OBC member Brad Price sent us a link to a short video he made of some very busy Mason bees. Great little video. Thank you Brad.

It was a swarm. No vac. Just a catch box we shook them off the fence into. We got the whole swarm by waiting till after nightfall to get the box.

For the human being is a composite being. The body needs exercise without which it atrophies. The mind needs exercising too, otherwise it deteriorates. Intellectuals deteriorate physically. Manual workers, behind their machines, suffer intellectual deterioration

Great place to meet with clients or work alone in between meetings. Good tea, good coffee, free wifi and plug-ins at most tables for devices.

Sadly, I can't even give you a review of the food here. The one waitress that seemed to be there essentially avoided me the entire time I was waiting. Not once did she even attempt to even acknowledge I was there. Hospitality was non-existent, but there were a few people eating there, all of whom apparently all spoke Spanish only. The interior was moderately clean but had a cluttered appearance. This is not the typical South Omaha experience as most South Omaha businesses are well known for being very hospitable and up-front with guests. Based on the first experience of being utterly ignored and not given any service at all, perhaps because I don't look like I speak Spanish, which is no excuse at all for any business in the U.S. let alone South Omaha, I don't foresee making another attempt to go in and try the food as being ignored when you're hungry is not a good combination. If you speak Spanish, give it a shot, maybe they'll serve you. Until they become hospitable to English speaking visitors, this is all I can provide you information about.

Not carb diet friendly. Overpriced for the experience. Friendly and helpful staff but a bit slow. Not my first choice to bring business contacts to.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Every time our organization reserved a meeting room, the staff were very hospitable and accommodating.

Good parking. Friendly, hospitable staff. Accepted reasonable changes to order (cajun chicken sandwich, no bun) with no problem. The cajun grilled chicken was very flavorful, a good sized portion of meat. Served with homemade potato chips, not just some bag of chips. even when ordered without the bun, the plate was presented very nicely and not just thrown together or looking "dumped" on the plate. Free wifi service makes a working lunch easy to do though not a lot of plug in outlets available, the server was very helpful when asked and helped locate a table with an outlet next to it (my phone was on it's last blip) and the price was more affordable than anticipated. A big, roomy area with an attractive wooden bar with brass rails and hangers at each stool for coats, etc on the bar. Very nice touch and looks great. I look forward to not only going there for lunch again, but I plan to make it a client/working lunch destination.

As President of a local beekeeping assn, the resources they make available to the community in the form of gardening and entomology ave been been outstanding. The Master Gardeners program volunteers have been very cooperative and willing to work with programs. The full time entomologist is a very good presenter and source of information. He is very cooperative and experienced. The staff at the front office are always friendly and hospitable every time I call or stop in. Good parking out front with a good number of handicap spots. A little tricky to get to as the easiest way in is via the access road from 78th St at the stoplight (South side of the intersection).
