According to Egyptian mythology, when the god Re cried, his tears turned into bees upon touching the ground. Beyond the realm of myth, the honey bee is a surprisingly common and significant motif in Egyptian history, playing a role in the mythology, medicine, art, and food of the ancient culture. In this book, entomologist Gene Kritsky presents the first full-length discussion of the ways in which bees were a part of life in ancient Egypt, shedding light on one of the many mysteries of the ancient world. Kritsky delves into ancient Egypt's complex society, revealing that bees had a significant presence in everything from death rituals to trade. In fact, beekeeping was a state-controlled industry, and in certain instances honey could even be used to pay taxes! Honey was used both to sweeten foods and treat cuts, and was sometimes used as a tribute or offering. From the presence of bees in paintings and hieroglyphs in tombs to the use of beeswax in a variety of products, bees had a significant presence in ancient Egyptian culture.

Victor is entirely unlike his nine brothers and sisters, having an innate courage and belief in himself that compels him to be an inveterate wanderer into areas not at all suited to mouse longevity. His secret forays into the town dump yield treasures too numerous to bring home, thus requiring ingenious extraction and storage solutions of pack-rat proportion . often resulting in life-endangering adventure.

WHEN YOU’RE READY is the book I wanted to read as I spent years searching bookstore shelves for answers. After reading so many self-help books, I decided I wanted to write a book about what it is really like to change your life. I began keeping a journal, and two years later, When You’re Ready was born, and so was my career as a Lifestyle Coach ( WHEN YOU’RE READY can mean many different things. It can be about second chances, living your dreams, finding new love, feeing sexy again, making money and starting over. However, the common denominator is getting back your confidence. It’s about being so comfortable in your own skin that you start shedding layers of fear, self-doubt, and negativity and start magnetizing your “dream life.” Life can be challenging, but it can also be an incredible journey. I found my passion, I live my truth, I feel and look better than ever—and so can you.
