CC. Welcome to our forum, good that you finally made a post, we love to hear from new members, lurking is the term that I think is a great one, and it is good.
You are probably getting really excited about getting your bees, wait until they come, you ain't seen nuthin' yet. Keep reading, studying. Yes, the internet is the most wonderful way to understand, learn, all from the peace and quiet from your home. Some people just don't like being out in the public stream, I too am one. I love to be home, I am a home body, I go to our bee meetings and get out, but find I learn so much more just by being on this forum, reading on the internet and such, such wonderful learning tools.
When you get your bees, tell us your experience, we are all interested in hearing stories and experiences, bring them on. Have that wonderful and awesome day, Cindi
