Splinter99.  Welcome to our forum, your Wife made a wise decision to encourage you to keep bees, you are under their spell, not a doubt.  You have a beautiful talent, to work with wood, very wholesome and consider yourself fortunate to have this skill.  Tell us some of your stories, we love to hear stories of the bees (and other things too), curious group we are, and nosey too, hee, hee.  Your Wife sounds like she possesses some pretty cool skills too, I liked the one about "stronger than most men", yeah!!!  That paints a very cool picture in my mind's eye.  I like to think for my size I am strong too, I am 5'2" and can outwork many men that I know, hee, hee.  Welcome to a place where you will make some new friends, a great place to present any questions that you may have, a place to tell our beekeeping stories.  Have a most wonderfully, awesome day, love our life we all love and live.  Cindi
