Sean, oh wow!!! That was so cool for Brian to offer his assistance, go for it!!! YOu could find someone to bunk him, you must have a couch if you don't have a spare room. What a chance of a lifetime to have someone that has been working with bees almost all of their life to come and be a mentor. YOu are a very lucky man. I wish that I could have had someone physically come and stay with me to teach me so many things about the bees that I learned in the hardest ways. Take Brian up on it, by the end of the few days, think of the knowlege that you will have gleaned from Brian.
Oh no.....I just thought of what Brian might feel like when he left your place. He may not have anything left inside his head to look after his own bees. Please Sean.....do not pick his brains too hard, hee, hee.
Brian, what a gracious offer to Sean. Now that is what I call a true to the heart beekeeper. A person that would be willing to go to such an extent to help out another beekeeper has got to be a very, very special person. I take my hat off to you, and I say this with deep and true intent. You will have so much good karma that it will be comin' out yo' ears!!!! Have the most beautiful and wonderful day, we are lovin' this life we lead. Cindi
