Kelly, welcome to our forum, this will be the place that will be your leaning post, you can learn lots by reading, asking questions, and ask till the cows come home. No question is ever considered to be an unimportant one, we were all once a beginner at the bees too, we all asked questions, hee, hee.
You are sitting twiddling your thumbs, I know that feeling, been there done that. Before I got my package bees I took courses at my instructor's farm. He ran 1,200 colonies and looking at his bees made my fingers and mind twitch, just waiting to get my own bees, I know your what you are feeling. The day will come and then.....you will fall under that spell of the honeybee, you will be addicted, and, you know what, you ain't seen nuthin' yet. So welcome, you will make new friends here, this will be your home away from home, a friendly environment where we all help each other, and each one of us is very important. Have this wonderful and beautiful day as yours, make it so. Cindi
