DOWN UNDER BEEKEEPING / Re: Swarm Traps Well Worth The Effort...
« Last post by Acebird on January 21, 2017, 09:42:21 AM »
BINGO !!!  Today we have a new hive of FREE bees, which makes my persistence worth the effort & me very happy. :grin:
What will it take to keep them until the next swarm season?
You are right gww I missed it. 
Mine is plastic but I have no idea if it is food grade or not.  It is white though.  The way I look at a bee hive is that none of the components are food grade and the honey spends more time in the hive then it does in my extractor.  The hose I use to clean out my extractor is not food grade either.  The kitchen I use to process my honey is not an approved honey processing room.  The thing is I am not supplying Nabisco or Walmart.  Honey is a specialized food that is very forgiving when it comes to microbial growth.  Even if the equipment were deemed contaminated by an FDA inspection the likelihood of getting an infection from eating honey that was in contact with this equipment is very very low.  Most other foods you eat do not have this characteristic.  Don't be worried about food grade except for a lubricant with honey equipment.  Now I am not suggesting you build an extractor out of mild steel without protecting it from rusting.

Hi Fisherman Allen, I am Darwin born but moved away for work in 2009.
Currently in Perth and have been housing bees for around 2yrs.
Have been wandering if I had taken up the bee bug whilst in Darwin what would it be like.
Could you spare some time and describe to me a bit about bee keeping back home.
Honey flavours, difficulties, honey flows, how they go in the wet and oh my gosh do you put the girls onto mangos and what is the honey like. I think the humidity would be a problem, and the flavours would be incredible.

Thanks for any insights

Subject: Tie Breaker

    How do you settle a presidential election when the vote is too close
    to call? With a fishing contest in northern Wisconsin in January, of course!
    After the first round of votes were counted, Hillary and Donald were

    Instead of going through a recount, they agreed to a week-long ice
    fishing contest to settle the election. Whoever caught the most fish
    at the end of the week would be the President.

    They decided that a remote frozen lake in northern Wisconsin would be
    the ideal place. No observers on the fishing grounds, but both would
    need to have their catches verified and counted each night at 5 pm.

    After Day 1, Trump returned with a total of 10 fish, Hillary came
    back with nothing.

    Day 2 finished, and Trump caught another 20 fish, but Hillary once
    again came back with nothing.

    That night, Hillary and her cronies got together and accused Trump
    of being a ?low-life, cheat.?  Instead of fishing on Day 3, they were going

    to follow and to spy on him and figure out how he was cheating.

    Day 3 finished up and Trump had an incredible day, adding 50 fish to
    his total!

    That night, Hillary and her democratic cohorts got together for the
    full report on how Donald was cheating. Hillary stood up to give her
    report and said, ?You are not going to believe this, he?s cutting holes in the ice!?

    And this story, tells you all you need to know about the difference
    between a successful businessman and a career government politician.
THE COFFEE HOUSE ((( SOCIAL - ROOM ))) / Trump's Cabinet
« Last post by GSF on January 21, 2017, 07:17:14 AM »
Well........Obama chose people from his religion (Muslim), so turn about is fair play.   


Don't know if y'all have seen this, but it is encouraging.....

                                       Trump's Cabinet

          It is happening!

           Nine Members of Trump?s Cabinet Identify as devout Christians.
        President-elect Donald Trump has now appointed nine members
           to the White House, each  of whom profess publicly to be Christians. Is this a huge
           answer to prayer?

          ?For many years, we have prayed that God would raise up men
           and women of God to  positions of leadership and influence in our country.
           However, since the end of the George W. Bush administration, there have been previous few answers to that prayer," writes author and pastor David Murray. "Who would have thought that Donald Trump might be the answer to that prayer??

           At the heart of these appointments is Vice President Mike Pence who has previously said, ?My Christian faith is at the heart of who I am? and  ?I?m a Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order."

          Then there is Chief of Staff Reince  Preibus, who has previously tweeted "Christ?s sacrificial work provides an example for us all, and we join with the Psalmist in saying ?You make known to me the path of life.?"

          Then we've got Attorney General Jeff Sessions (who is Sunday school teacher at his family?s church) and Housing and Urban Development?s Dr. Ben Carson, who believes that God spoke clearly to him that Trump would be president.

            Further to this, there is Education?s Betsy DeVos, a Christian committed to bringing God's Kingdom' through schooling.

           Then we have newly-announced Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, EPA?s Scott Pruitt, CIA?s Mike Pompeo (whose family attends  Eastminster Presbyterian Church), and Ambassador to UN Nikki Haley. They are all Christians!

           The number of believers in the upper echelons of the Trump administration is quite incredible.

Women, Don't try to understand women,
Women understand women and they hate each other. - Al Bundy

Be decisive. Right or wrong make a decision,
The road of life is paved with flat squirrels who couldn't make a decision.

Life is short,
Smile while you still have teeth

Never make a woman mad,
They can remember stuff that hasn't happened yet.

"My thoughts are:  We have a President for the first time in 24 years."
I totally agree.
I have not been so excited about having a new president in a long time.
I just fear for his life. The people in control have no control over him and they do not like it.
