Gongey’s BlogDescribing the Indescribable World of The Gongey

All things Gongey

A Gongey is a special being. Having been created in the fiery furnaces of hell...wait...let me start over.
Back when collars were huge and pants were in the shape of bells I was born. The year was 1977. After 10 long months of gestation I was ready to join the world and make my contribution.
This blog is a record of my life. Good, bad and generally mundane!

Wow it’s almost been a month since my last post.  I don’t have any recollection of that time?! 
Quick update of the family:

-Mary is taking cake decorating classes.  Which means all the cake i can eat!
-Elias is about 9.5 lbs. now and growing fast.  He is still not on a regular schedule yet.  🙁
-I am working!  Working the business(Natural Edge) and getting the garden ready for food and bees.
-My bees arrive April 19th, so if you want to come watch me put them in the hive let me know!

I have a few pictures still in the memory card at home.  So updated pictures will be coming soon. 

The business is going great.  We are slowly growing.  We just got a letter/testimonial from an 80 year old woman whose mom is taking our product.  By the way her mom is 103!!  She says her mom loves it! 
That’s pretty fun to hear that kind of praise. 

Mary and I are going to start building some “Zombie Hunter Kits” to sell on ebay and our website.  Hopefully that will bring in some extra income.  We are also going to do “Vampire Hunter Kits” and “Werewolf Hunter Kits”.  Cool eh?!

That’s the gist of things right now.

  5. mommy gongey says:

    are you raising bees to get honey? We just started buying the natural honey that is not strained or heated and it is the best honey I have ever had. We bought it for our food storage but I think I might have to buy a little more since my family liked it more than I thought they would.

    Zombie, vampire, and warewolf hunting kits….now that sounds like something my fam would like. Give us some more details on those.

  6. Gongey says:

    I am raising them just to do it, but the honey is the excellent side benefit. So yes we are doing it for the honey as well in a way. Mary wouldn’t let me sell the honey any other way than raw. Which is by far the best way! So it will go straight from the hive to the bottle. The first year I don’t know how much honey we will have but I am fairly certain we will have plenty for family. 😉

    I will write up a blog post about the hunter kits!

    Syd: HOLY CRAP MAN!!! TOO MUCH COFFEE MOCHA-LATTE-FRAPACHINO-CAFFENINO-DEATH-A-CRAPA FOR YOU!

    Yeah we decided to do bees a couple of months ago. I am scared(of getting stung) but excited at the same time. 😀

  11. Debbiegongey says:

    man I miss you all!!!!

  12. Undead Gongey says:

    we miss you too ^^

  13. Gongey Kong says:

    First off alll. When you get the bees and i go over there, I will not go any where near them. They hurt and i am totally freaked out about them you have NO idea. When I found out you were getting bees i was completly horrified. Anyway cool. You so lucky… I mean CAKE? ugg but that’s awesome about the zombie, werewolf, vampire survival kit. So i can’t wait to see Elias again.

  14. Gongeylittle says:

    Um….When you get the bees, Elias is comming to my house when i babysit him cause ive never been stung before. *knock on wood*. Hey, you’re missing a Sydnee survival kit.

  15. Undead Gongey says:

    haha because you know i’m a combination of all the undead.
    I’m the only Vampire zombie ninja pirate on this planet as far as i’m concerned. Beware.

  16. Undead Gongey says:

    *ponders*
    sydnee survival kit….
    ….Syd likes… >= )

  17. GongimusPrime says:

    Why are you buying bees? Last time I was in town you had enough in your yard for me to get stung without importing any. Why, if it weren’t for me being such a heroic guy, someone else would have got stung as well.

    ( If you were wondering what I did that was so heroic, it involves yelling “BEES!!!!” and running towards the house with your arms waiving wildly over your head, the international sign for “Lookout Bees!”) Luckily no one else was harmed, thanks to my swift thinking and immediate selfless action.

    The zombie kits are awesome, let me know when they are online and I will order a few for my Bro’s b-day gifts, that’s a perfect gift idea.

    Glad to hear the business is doing well and growing, I knew you guys had the right stuff to make it work. Best wishes to all you guys in UT.

  18. Gongey says:

    Syd & Ash: Hmm…People survival kits….interesting.

    KDH: They were hornets…the worst kind too. And that is very true you did selflessly take a hit from the Hornet Horde! Saving not only my life but my families life and countless others in the process.
    Holy crap you posted at 5:55am…don’t you know that’s good sleeping time?!

  19. Undead Gongey says:

    I’m awake at five every day…….

  20. Gongeylittle says:

    You posted yours at 8:14 a.m If i didn’t have school and i owned my own busness i would sleep in.

  21. Gongeylittle says:

    5??!?! You’re nuts! I wake up 30 mins before im supposed to be to school. No wonder I always smell….

  22. Undead Gongey says:

    I have to. My ride gets at my house at Six thirty and i need time to dry my hair which takes fifteen mins tops. and i need to take a shower in the mornings which take about twenty mins then i have to get dressed accasionally put makeup on and do some stuff for school and i’m out the door.

  23. GongimusPrime says:

    5:55am is usually good sleeping time for me. 6am is my usual morning start up, but Mr. Hugh had other plans that morning and I figured I would check the posts here.

    Here’s another funny idea for a survival kit for the SLC area. The “I didn’t make it to the liquor store on Saturday kit.” Put some empty beer cans / mini sampler bottles in the kit etc. I can still remember hearing people complain about the no boose on Sunday law, might be funny enough to sell. Since the bottles are empty you could even sell this kit on Sunday! Oh the irony!!!

  24. Undead Gongey says:

    Poor pathetic people who buy that sort of thing.

  25. Undead Gongey says:

    …..i’m just kidding….
    hello? i’m still on good terms right?? Hello?

  26. Gongeylittle says:

    wow…there is a serious lack of posting here.

  27. Undead Gongey says:

    well dont look at me. I’m not a bum. i posted the last two times

  28. mommy gongey says:

    Hey gongey how was Eli’s first easter? Did the Big Bunny find him?

  29. Undead Gongey says:

    … he definately didnt find me this year = (

  30. Undead Gongey says:
