Nectar Collector by Animal town Game Company was independently published in 1978.  Have fun while learning about honeybees. Maybe you will become the "Super Beekeeper!"  We played this game with our children when they were young, and brought it out again a couple years ago.  We had the most fun, laughing and laughing!

  1. Sounds like a wonderful way to spend the holiday! Happy Thanksgiving to you!

  2. Wow everything is so fantastic !!This is the best way to enjoy the time !!Unseen Rajasthan

  3. That looks like a great vegetable soup!! We were thinking about vegetable stew and soda bread. We might also have a few "traditional" sides like yams and green beans and my homemade cranberry relish. It may not all go together in a traditional sense, but I am looking forward to it. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  4. I love thanksgiving too... more than Christmas. I could rest with the kitties right now!!! :)

  9. Your plans for the holiday sound wonderful. The vegetable soup sounds really good as the temperatures drop, I might have to add it the the menu. Playing with kitties is always good.

    Blogger has been a real pain this last month for me too. For awhile it wouldn't let me post on some blogs, and I've also had a few problems with post. That doesn't even count the time a few weeks ago when I couldn't even get into my blogs. Good luck.

    Happy Thanksgiving,
