I may or may not be online for the next ten days since I'm leaving this morning to visit some family on the way and then giving presentations at HAS.  If I don't respond to direct questions, please be patient.  I will get on as I find access to the internet and time, but both are likely to be in short supply for the next ten days.

Wish I could make it out there, but I have to work. Take advantage of the Salato tour or go on your own. It is one of my favorate places to visit and completely free. They used to have a nice bee tree display, but I don't think its there anymore. Also Dadant is just 5 minutes away. Oh.....and don't miss Buffalo Trace distillery (request Freddy as your tour guide) its the best tour in the area and the oldest distillery I believe.

Have a wonderful time - everyone there will be so lucky to get to hear your talks - wish I were one of them.  The program looks great.

We'll of course miss your input here as I hang onto your every word, but then we'll be delighted when you are back online helping to shepherd all of us through our beekeeping efforts.

Safe travels,

MB, we will be patient while you are on this hiatus, have a great time, and if bluegrass stops by warn all in his presence that he is not to be trusted, he is vile and worst than any wax moth, for we all know he is a self proclaimed brood eater! grin

Okay.....so I will admit that I thought the price was too high to go and see one or two lectures that I am interested in, but I really want to hear MB speak and I am sure this is one of the few chances I will have to meet him in person. I stopped by Dadant to get a few things today, and Robin asked if I was going to go.  After we left Dadant my wife (who was with me) asked why I was  "worried about a $20.00 registration fee?" "The conferance I go to every year for work costs us 350.00 plus my yearly dues.....you should go, its sounds like the cheapest conferance on the planet"
So I am going to take off from work on Saturday and go; Hope I meet some of the other people from this forum and Beesource while I am there. Are there any plans for members to get together?

Michael told me it's the first picture of him to be posted online! Here are the first pictures from Michael teaching in the beeyard at HAS 2007. He taught making splits to prevent swarming. In my opinion it was the best class I've attended at the conference so far. His later classroom talk about observation hives was also terrific!

Wish I could have made all of his talks, but I will catch the one on top entrances and small equipment in the morning. I was planning on posting the first MB pic, looks like you beat me to it Wink

danno1800.  Thanks for the pics.  Like Brendhan said, putting a picture to a face (or is it the other way around), is awesome.

That is cool picture of Michael.  I don't know why, but I pictured him differently.  I think I remember him stating that his heritage is Lakota aboriginal and this created the different picture in my mind's eye.

Michael, you look great!!!  And it looks like you are a wonderful beekeeper, my hat off to you.  Have a wonderful and beautiful day.  regards, Cindi

You are so welcome, Cindi! It is always fun to meet someone bacause they look so different from what you expect. Michael is a very knowledgeable, very pleasant person. He was patient & thoughtful in his beeyard & classroom presentations. It was a real honor to study under one of the great ones. The thing I love about beekeeping is that sharing from experienced beekeepers to those with less experience. It passes on the hard-won learning of all the previous generations of beekeepers: mentor to pupil. I highly recommend to everyone planning to visit Huntington, WV next year, July 10-12, 2008, for the next HAS meeting. We hope we can talk Michael into coming back to teach for us again. -Danno

Change the hair line, shorten and whiten the beard and mustashe and MB and I could almost be brothers.

Another prossible difference is that if I'm afoot I always have my cane in hand.  I'm told that on the days I feel well enough to go into the bees w/o the wheelchair that I look like a fat 3 legged giraffe.  Or old goat given the beard.

I had a wonderful time at HAS.  Here are a few of my thoughts on it and my gratitude:

Robin Mountain.

Thanks Robin for asking me to come and for all the work you put into this.  I think it was a great meeting and your enthusiasm and work are a big part of it's success.

Dann Purvis.

Thanks for sharing your ideas and your passion for our bees.  I really enjoyed the late night discussions with you and others.  When it's all said and done, dead bees don't make honey.  And, as you said, survival is the best test to see if we've got good stock.  All the mite and drop counts and capped mite counts, and hygienic tests will not prove that.  Not that they are not useful, possibly, but they are not the bottom line.  It's nice to hear someone else who sees that clearly.  I wish I had the time, money, energy and bees to do as much as you are in that regard.  Also thanks for the Instrumental Insemination class.  It was very enlightening.

Jennifer Berry.

Thanks for doing a serious study of small cell.  It sounds like you will see it through.  The real test, of course, will be in a few years of not treating.  Thanks for sharing your thoughts and ideas.

Roger Hoopingarner

Thank you for your notes on L.L. Langstroth, your presentation of that information, and your queen rearing class.  Also your sharing of your experiences with hand fertilizing eggs.  It was great to meet you and your wife.  I enjoyed talking to both of you very much.

Edwin Holcombe

Thanks for the tracheal mite class.  It was very enlightening.  Also the late night beekeeping discussions.

Beemaster people.

It was wonderful to put faces to names.  Thanks for introducing yourselves.

Kevin Jester

I had so many good discussions with you before I realized who you were.  It was really stimulating conversation.  Thanks.

Larry Connor

Thanks for providing most of the bee books available right now.  As I said to you at the meeting, you can't ever retire.  But seriously, you are a huge asset to the beekeeping fraternity, not only with your expertise with bees, but by publishing books that big publishers wouldn't consider.

Volunteers.

Thanks to the many volunteers without whom the conference would never take place.  Your work is appreciated.

The Bee Lady

Reyah, thanks for the stings.  The shoulder was better since.  The neck is a bit stiff.  Of course it will all work its way out.

The Bees.

The bees were there as well.  The ones in the beeyard were so well behaved.   The three that died for my apitherapy paid a high price.

My new friends from the Virgin Islands.

Some people have especially beautiful souls.  Thanks for sharing yours with everyone around you.  I wish you and your bees the best.

Thanks to the vendors.

I always find some new tool when you are there.  I found three this year, but every one of them makes my life easier.

Janet Brisson.

It was nice to meet you, finally after knowing you online so long.  I wish I had time to go to some of your presentations.  Your energy is infections.

Everyone in my classes.

Thanks for coming to the classes.  The turnout was great.  I hope you all got what you came to them for.
