Enlightening, all I can say. There is so much that goes way down deep in running a forum such as ours. John's and the other Moderators' biggest jobs here is to prevent any kind of stuff to go on that goes against what the forum contends to be, that safe, friendly, non-spam type place in cyberspace. This noticing of what this thread has turned out to be all about goes deep. I would not have noticed it, I don't look that deep into things. Just such some praise that needs to go out to the people that make our forum that great place to live, in our cyberspace in time, thanks again, 8-) :) :) :) Have a most wonderful and awesome life and day, great health.

P.S. JohnnyBigFish.....in answer to your query, I buy my pollen from my old bee instructor, irradiated. Up to this point in time, I I have left all the pollen for my bees. Next year I will be beginning to gather my own pollen, leaving my two pollen traps on different colonies for a day or two only at a time, no clue how much I will gather. It has been due to sheer laziness that I haven't gathered my own, hee, hee. C.
