Two swarms late this evening
« on: March 26, 2008, 12:44:06 AM »
Got a call late this afternoon for two swarms of bees here in town. Went and got them and they got me at least four or five times. First swarms, glad they were easy ones. Bill

it's addicting, i think.  :-)
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Cute about the kid. You did tell him no computer games until he was 30.:)

Congrads on the swarm. Post pictures and details.
