Hello all. I had a grandfather that was a beekeeper, and at 5 years old I can remember going with him to his yard and being fascinated by it. We moved away a couple of years later and he passed away a soon after. 40 years later I am at a point were I can start the hobby for myself. I do not have any bees yet but have been buying/building equipment and attending local association meetings. Oh yeah and reading to the point I think my head will explode. I would like to thank all of you for the time you put in this forum to share your knowledge and help out us new folks.

AGM, welcome to our forum.  When I hear of all the people that have been inspired by their Grandparents, Uncles, and so on, to keep bees, it brings a smile to my face.  It would also bring a smile to their face, to know that those little children that accompanied them to their special place with their bees, have had that spell of those honeybees cast, that sometimes many, many years later, their influence has brought their progeny to keep bees.  That is a cool and wonderful thing, I just had to say that.  When you get your bees, you will reflect back to those days that you were fascinated watching your Grandfather's bees, and you will be so excited to be back with them, (and I don't doubt for a moment, that your Grandfather will be watching you too, smiling).  Stick around, you will have stories, tales and experiences to tell us, we are an interested group of people, and love to listen.  Have that most wonderful and awesome day, Cindi
