Heck no, keep the Fed.  They are the only Federal Agency actually eliminating debt!  All the rest of them spend, spend, and spend some more; both parties.  The Fed has eliminated over 2 trillion in debt.  They also have the power to stimulate the economy when the private sector cuts spending.  Helps keep recessions from becoming depressions.

The conservations get in a tizzy about “printing money”, but so is everybody else.  That’s what happens in recessions; governments print money and try to keep their economies going.  If everybody is doing it, then you aren’t really changing the value of your dollar by printing more; you're just keeping even with everybody else AND you're eliminating debt at the same time.  The Forex market sets the relative values of the world’s major currencies and the dollar hasn’t changed much.

I never buy the all in one plastic frames just because of the slots in the frames. I do use plasticicell foundation and it works very well if you use all plastic in any individual super. When it is all they have, they build on it very well and 99% of the time very neat. The only problem I have with it is that it is 5.4 MM instaed of 4.9 MM which is what I want in the brood box.

No love for the plastic  Sad
If your hive is strong and shb isn't a problem. Do nothing. The bees can trap the shb in those holes and should propolize them closed.
Serious question. Have you ever seen a SHB propolized in a cavity. I watch my bees in an OH and have never seen them seal a single SHB. I wish it were true and I was expecting it. I do not have any right now but I have seen cells filled with SHB and they never seal up the cell.

Welcome to bee master. If you offer to help a local beek, I think you gain more than your time is worth. It will also bee a lot of fun and you can try it before you buy your first hive.

I saw a study awhile back, that I can 't seem to find again, but the quick overview of it was how far from home kids ventured from the house on a daily basis. in 1910 it was anywhere from 10 to 15 miles. That slowly trended down until 1980 my childhood years the range was 4-5 miles. In 2010 the range was 0-.1 miles.
I thought about this and it seems pretty accurate. When I was a child I roamed all throughout the neighborhoods down the creek and throughout the woods. Rarely would I travel more than 4 miles as the crow flies, but I had no need, I had plenty of stuff to get in trouble with in that 4 miles.

My kids now do not ride their bike without me. We live on an entry way to my neighborhood with no sidewalks so there is a decent flow of traffic so my kids do not ride in the street. Granted my oldest is only 7 but at 7 I did ride around my old neighborhood with my friends. My kids walk next door to the neighbors house that's about all. Is that due to lazy kids or overly concerned parents? I don't know maybe both.

My oldest at 7 has an ipad and if I don't stop her she will watch cartoons all day and never look up. At 7 I had cartoons from 7-10 on Saturdays other than that I was outside. Now she is a girl so my real test will be with my son but he is only 14 months so time will tell. I think kids today have the electronics to entertain them and I believe that is a real concern.

My 7 year old loses weight during the summer. She is in a summer camp they swim, run around, and do a lot of outdoor activities, because of that she burns off any extra calories. I do believe they have more calorie dense foods at easy reach now a days but that is my fault as a parent. We work to keep that stuff out of our house we try to provide balanced meals but its hard to compete with Cheetos trust me.

I believe it is a multiple cause problem I can't lay it all at the feet of electronics but electronics play a big part.
