Is there a forum your wife would recommend? As a beginner I'd like to hear experience so I can sort out fact from fiction on the internet.

   My nearest translation of " ute" Michael is that it is a pickup. They vary from 4 cyls. to V8's which are boosted in different ways. A good example is the Deniliquin Ute Muster, an annual event.   http://www.theherald.com.au/story/2609021/deniliquin-ute-muster-2014-monster-gallery-photos/?cs=2452#slide=15

Wondering if Solomon is still on the forum and ready to answer questions.  Seems the thread got way off topic last year.  Did Solomon give up on it?

I think you can find him on facebook. At least that's what I've been told.

Lucky Aussies.  The ute is the coolest vehicle we can't get in the U.S.  A few have been brought in and made legal, but it's really expensive.

I'm a little late to this conversation on GMO, but aren't almost all food plants genetically modified?  Wheat started out as an insignificant grass somewhere in the middle east and people in ancient times fooled around with it and made it an important cereal grain.  What is selective breeding but genetic modification?

Okay, if you're talking about gene splicing, isn't that a totally different subject than genetic modification?  If so (and I'm pretty sure it is), then come up with some other term than GMO. 

The green revolution that is feeding many times the number of people who could be fed before is the result of genetic modification by Dr. Norman Borlaug and others.  Millions alive today would be dead had he not done his work.  Millions who have food today would starve if his work were suddenly erased.

NATURAL & ORGANIC BEEKEEPING METHODS / Re: non treated/over wintered bees

I have gotten packages from Wolf Creek and know others who have gotten bees from them and others who are getting packages this spring from them. I have had pretty good luck with there packages. They build up fast and draw comb good. But I always let them build up and split them and give the split a local queen. Doubling your hive count ups your chances of having bees come spring. Splitting the packages for increase is the reason I bought packages. Their early queens are mated in Ga. and it just doesn't get as cold and stay cold as long in Ga. and Tn. as it does in Maine.
