I guess the good news is I don't do any online money transactions other than paypal. I did change my passwords and bought some unlimited tech support from another company. I didn't know that about the Admin, thanks also.

I have broad band satellite - Hughes net. Google Chrome is much slower than IE on my provider. I'll give the fire fox a try.

I got a call from a tree trimmer this morning. they'd dropped a big sycamore & discovered the hard way that there was a hive in it. after exposing the hive I was about to starting installing the comb into frames but noticed that all the brood areas in the comb was covered with very small larva. it looked too small ( 1/8" long & thin as thread ) to be small hive beetle larva but playing it safe I discarded all of the comb. it was a small hive so I vacuumed up the few bees there were & put them into a nuc & isolated them from any other hives until I can do a mite count. if they're ok i'll combine them with another hive. since the tree had just been dropped which gave the hive a pretty good jolt could the larva have been early bee larva that had been knocked out of their cells?

Dang it Capt! You better lay low for a couple of weeks anyway. I had one a couple of years ago. On my right side below the belt angled toward you know where. About a 6 inch cut. I stopped taking pain meds about the second or third day when I got home. I wanted it to hurt so I wouldn't have to have the repair repaired. I suddenly found myself talking to several men who had screwed up and jumped right back into their normal lifes. They ended up with more surgeries, surgeries as in plural.  For two weeks my wife had to help me get up and down or out of bed. I was cut right in the muscles that moved when ever you done anything. I was out of work for about 5 or 6 weeks. It was painful but I don't regret stopping the meds.

Certainly glad to have you back, but please don't over do it. I got up and walked around every day. I believe you need to be mildly active but be ever so careful about what you call active.

Ok I hate to ask but, I need some advise on wintering... Id ask a local Bee Keeper but there are none within a 100 miles I know of....
I am a newbee flying solo!!!!!!!

Ok I have two hives one has two deeps that are pretty heavy  filled with pollen and honey. then they also have a med super with a super  full of capped honey.  I recently added one more which the bees are slowly drawing out...

How should I prepare it for winter? Should I remove the undrawn med super and winter it with two deeps and the capped and filled honey super? Or should I winter it as is with 2 deeps and two med supers?

Ok the next hive has 2 deeps the bottom deep is very light  almost empty.the 2nd deep is heavy. They have one med super filled with capped honey. They are also drawing out the comb on a 2nd med super. I assume the reason the bottom deep is empty is they moved up to avoid a draft.. This hive is know where near as big as the first one I mentioned....
How should I store this one??  As far as deeps and supers?
