    • Plan Bee: White House Unveils Strategy To Protect Pollinators

      This was long before foodies and allergy sufferers began to covet raw honey, before the “buy local” and “eat natural” and “shop ethical” movements took hold, before the plight of the honeybee became a cause célèbre, before backyard beekeeping went mainstream in Hampton Roads and across America. Pam Fisher, of Norfolk, went to the library and checked out every book she could find on the subject. She soon learned the quirky social rules of the little society she had given a home in her backyard. Read More: http://distinctionhr.com/2014/08/honey-bees/

      Shockoe Denim

      Finally had the chance to visit Shockoe Denim in #RVA! I found this brand through their feature in distinctionhr, and have been a fan ever since.  Shockoe Denim is known for their male/female custom designed jeans.  Their jeans are handmade within the store!  Jeans range from $185-$600.  Their store resembles that of an art studio and is quite welcoming.  

      Check the article feature Distinction published:

      If your ever in the Shockoe Bottom area of Richmond; stop in!

      Thanks for the mention. It truly is a great place with a well made product!

      Christopher Corrie uses needle-nose tweezers to position quarter-inch cubes of roasted beet on tonight’s terrine, a pate-like meatloaf of ground pork, bacon, eggs, cream, onions, herbs and brandy. At least that’s what he thinks he put into it. He’s too stubborn to use a recipe, says Karine Varga, his wife and partner in @chartreusebistro , a European-style restaurant in downtown Norfolk, where the menu changes daily based on what’s available from their favorite farms.
