just taking my orientation flight
« on: September 23, 2008, 03:16:25 AM »
I look forward to being a part of the forum. This is my first year in beekeeping. I got started after I met some nice folks from the local beekeeper's assoc. at a fair. My reasons for keeping bees: to better observe the beauties of nature and of God's creation, and, of course, I to satiate my Winnie-the-Pooh-like love of honey. My bees swarmed their's (and my) first year,  (this year), but I got them back.

Hi reubenburwell  and welcome to the forum, this is a great place to get information and make friends please give your location in you profile so when you ask a question you can get a better answer because bees have different need for different locations.

Reuben, welcome to our forum, this will be a place where you can spend some great time, ask questions and make some new friends.  Good that you got your bees back after they swarmed, sometimes they go so high that it is nearly impossible to get them.  Stick around, here you can tell your stories, tales and experiences.  We are all an interested bunch of people, and love to listen.  Have the most wonderfully awesome day, Cindi
There are strange things done in the midnight sun by the men who moil for gold.  The Arctic trails have their secret tales that would make your blood run cold.  The Northern Lights have seen queer sights, but the queerest they ever did see, what the night on the marge of Lake Lebarge, I cremated Sam McGee.  Robert Service
