DOWN UNDER BEEKEEPING / Re: What's flowering: Victoria
« Last post by Lancej on December 04, 2016, 05:02:38 PM »
This season I only took 1 hive up for our own fruit trees, it went backwards the day I left it there. Lots of nectar and pollen sources and still used their stores. Then they must have swarmed.

Michael - that made me laugh.   

So much of what we do is just because someone else did it that way first.   I think my biggest challenge has been to do it the 'right way' [a bunch of different 'right ways'], then figure out what really works for me, here, and then do it that way.   [Which, no doubt, someones will tell me is the WRONG way.]

That's a first for me. I Saw it last year when I tried feeding dry sugar. Seemed like most of went in to the bottom of the hive.

No, I'm not feeding dry sugar, which is why I was curious. I can only think that it is crystalized honey. I extracted some honey from last year's deadouts to feed to them in late summer, and some of that honey was cloudy from beginning to crystalize. But even so, bees will use dry/crystalized sugar so I would have thought that they wouldn't be getting rid of this. It is not in large quantities by any means, just scatterings like in the photo.

It's a different story if one injects himself into a situation, playing cop, or shoots a fleeing bad guy.

So in your second example if the naked guy pulled the trigger as he said he was going to do then he becomes a criminal.  There is no way to know if this man he overpowered was a harmless mental person that the state has dumped on the streets over the last 20 years.

Folks we live in very different parts of the country and that influences the thinking about guns.  In your neck of the woods people are spread out and more by themselves and it might be 1/2 hr to an hour response from law enforcement when they are needed.  I live in a area with thousands and thousands of people around with three law enforcement agencies to respond.  We are allowed to have hand guns but thankfully not everyone does.  Maybe you can understand that it is not in the best interest for law enforcement if there is a bunch of pistol Pete's around at every crime scene.  What happens here is guns get stolen, family members get hurt by accident, and domestic disputes escalate when guns are around.  The laws are different from state to state for good reason and the laws differ again when you get into metropolitan areas like the big apple.
I am not against guns.  Far from it.
To me it is like dog ownership.  It is not the dog's fault it is the owner.  I see the very same thing with guns.  I wish it weren't the case.
