Hive馃悵Talk - Ken Boddie, VIP, beBee Brand Ambassador - Feb. 12, 2019‘Hive Talk &


Ken Boddie VIP



Brisbane, State of Queensland, Australia

Ken loves to write about everything and anything and is an occasional poet and enthusiastic photographer. So that he can swap wit and banter with other like-minded bees, he leaves his choleric melancholic character in his consultant's office and goes on a daily walkabout on beBee.
Ken Boddie">">


Featuring, Ken Boddie, where there never is a dull moment when we're ever so priviledged to be blessed with Ken's poetry, his quick wit and delightful posts.


101 and Still Rhyming Along聽
Not bad for 101, eh? Well I'm talking beBee long form posts, of course. Before I arrive at a century in years, I trust that somebody will probably have taken pity on me and shot me, that is if we still have a planet by then.Ken Boddie


Another Spiel from the 鈥楾iel
Hey there, guys! It's me again. You know ..... Spotty, the cutest ever cockatiel. My dad says that I'm a messy little 'Fawker,' when he cleans up my cage every morning, and calls me 'Poops', 'cause he says that's what I do best. Ken Boddie


How Dark is Your First Foot?
Here's tae us!
Wha's like us?
Damned few!
And they're a' dead.Ken Boddie


The Poet is in You and Me!聽 Boddie


More o鈥 me Rhyming Comments: Fact, Fun or Farce
And there we have it, folks ..... a select smattering of some of my more salient (sage or shallow) spoutings, in response to a short and sweet selection of your most savoury and skilfully stated submissions.Ken Boddie


What's the Diff?聽
A hilarious recent post by one of my favourite bees, Paul Walters, on his initial dream of leading an ambassadorial life, in the salubrious and lavish way to which we could all become too easily accustomed, got me thinking about what the heck we're actually doing as brand ambassadors here on beBeeKen Boddie


Some o' Me Poems and Proverbs - Vol I
So here is a taste (a sampler if you will) of my selected words of unworldly wisdom, some near poetic, others a folly of fuzzy frollicks, vocalised in response to some of your posts, and written in the first couple of months after the birth of beBee Producer.Ken Boddie


True Tales of Haggis and Bagpipes聽
This is a tale of historic origins, much of which has been strained through a digital wobbly-truth detector, without inflicting any apparent damage, and with the balance having been told to me by my maternal grandmother. It was been passed down through successive generations of gullible children, as narrated around smokey peat or coal fires, and doubtless embellished and enhanced on its deviating route, by the imbibing of that hypnotic 'old wives' tale' serum that is the single malt Scotch whisky.Ken Boddie


It's beBee Blogging Time
What's this beBee all about, should I stay and work it out? 鈥 4/4/16Ken Boddie

I bow to your Royal Highness, Queen Bee Franci Eugenia, and thank you for reviving this expos茅 of my weary works and woeful warts. I can only repeat my comment of two years ago: 

馃憫 馃悵 馃憫馃悵馃憫馃悵

It鈥檚 really surprising and ever so nice, Hearing such praise, it鈥檚 like sugar and spice, 

And as for you, Franci, Queen Bee of the hive, 

Thank you for bringing my posts back alive, 

You still promote others without recompense, 

Your words, gold and myrrh, they are pure 鈥楩ranci-sense鈥.

I can always recommend a good dentist, Cyndi wilkins. Or, if Oz is too far to travel, just look in your local filling station. 馃ぃ馃槀馃ぃ

A light amidst the darkness that we often see, this quick witted Aussie is the 'top dog' of comic relief! Hat's off Ken Boddie...Smiles are contagious, so keep us smiling while we still have teeth;-)

Franci, I scrolled down your blog and found your first Hive Talk from Jun 2016. For all the effort and time you put in this series, I can only repeat what Sara said in her comment: Franci, YOU ROCK! For more than two and a half years you continue to promote new hives, trending articles "hot off the press" :-), but also, what' the most important, people behind those hives and articles. People like you and Ken are what make this place unique and worth spending time on it. Here's to many more Hive Talks!

Ken is definitely a cut above us worker bees, he never drones on. (Un)intensional pun?


Yes, he is and both bring so much to beBee!

Most welcome and thank you for your comment, Debasish.

My pleasure!

What a lovely response!

Thank you Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. I love his wit and whimsical poems.

Yes, so true, Pascal Derrien. IMO, beBee's uniqueness is its followers, and that's a plus.
