How fine is that, Michael!  It's a wonderful testimony to the value of your beekeeping methods.  I for one have learned so much from your posts here and from reading your website.  Thanks for posting the results of the inspection - great job!

Michael, I think that is wonderful that you have these certificates of healthy bees.  And I commend you.  You need to blow your own horn about this kind of wonderful stuff, no one elses will -- and I see absolutely nothing wrong with telling the world!!!!!!.

You should be proud that you have a certificate that allows the quality and health of your hives that shines through.  Keep on keepin' on.  Have a wonderful day, great life.  Cindi
