Welcome PerryBee. You will feel welcome here.

I hope that my next vacation will be to Nova Scotia. When your post count allows you to post photos, please do.

Perry, good, you have found our forum and welcome!!!  It is a wonderful and great place to spend time, you will soon see that.  Why don't you tell us a little bit about yourself so we can get to know you better?  It is wonderful to hear of what people are up to, and we are all interested.  Have a wonderful and greatest of day.  Cindi

Hello Cindi. Let's see,I'm 49,married and have a soon to be 6 yr. old boy.We moved to Nova Scotia when he was born (2002) from your backyard ( Port Coquitlam ).Needless to say we are still getting used to the difference in climate!! I had 5 hives in BC and now I have 10 and hope to at least double that in 08.The season is a lot shorter here so figuring out different bloom times and stuff has been a challenge.I just discovered a couple of these sights and wish I had known about them long ago ( my bees probably wish so too ).I can see there is a lot of knowledge out there and I 've already had a few good laughs as well.Great Site.

Perry, cool, Poco eh?  That is about a 20 minute drive (we are in east Maple Ridge, Websters Corners, to be exact), you probably know the area.  What area of Poco did you reside in?  What instigated a move to Nova Scotia, by the way.

Nice to see that you want to increase your number of hives.  I bet beekeeping is indeed different on the other side of this country.  Nice to have yet another Canadian with us.  Have a wonderful, great day.  Cindi

Websters Corner,know it well.Lived up on Mary Hill ,just off eastern.Kept my hives in Pit Meadows.I drove for BC Transit ( Coast Mtn. ) for 11 years.My wife and I were trying to start a family with no luck after years of trying.Remember the big 4 month transit strike?My son was born 9 months after the first day of the strike!!!! Something told me I had to make a change in the way we were living and I had been out here once before and loved it.Four mos. after he was born we moved to Lunenburg!!!Miss your weather though.

Oooh, Perry, that is cool about your Son being born 9 months after the first day of the strike.  Yes, I remember the strike well. It impacted our foster children terribly (and of course so many other poor souls).  Nice to hear of someone that knows the territory here, being a transit driver, you know everywhere, hee, hee.  Good luck with your life back east, never been there, but I know it is beautiful.  Talkin' to ya.  PM me sometime.  We're off topic, hee, hee (I do this well, my forum friends totally know this  :( ;) ;) :) :roll: :)).   Best of this great day.  Cindi

Where did you keep your bees in PM?
