I just talked to Author Howland Blackiston no more than 190 minutes ago and he informed me that MANY MEMBERS participated and one member's photo will be in the covetted CENTER COLOR PHOTO SECTION - a great place to want to be.

I hope that person comes foreward or PMS me to keep it a secret (unless everyone knows but me - lol) a FEMALE in the forum is a Color Centerfold!!! Ummmm Color Centerfold :)

My old COVER Image will now be in the CENTER COLOR ALSO along with 5 other images I think. I wish Howland GREAT SUCESS for he has extessively update the book over the 2001 version. Everything new is in there I assume or at least the over all book has added a lot of info that is more up to date then the 2001 original version. Just a suggestion, I'm sure after talking here for neearly an hour on the book an other things - he really likes the forum, just a bit intimidated by the forums learning curve.

Oh, we will see Beemaster.com in the book with a NICE intro by Howland concerning our site! Just some cool news. So whoever got the centerfold section, congratulations - I'll know today who it is, I just haven't heard yet :)

Awe, come on!!!  Who is it?  I think John said it was female.  Now there isn't that many females in our forum, it was not me.  I didn't submit any photos to him.  Personally, I cannot stand suspense, so let's get this cat out of the bag, hee, hee!!!  Have a wonderful, awesome life and day, health.  CIndi

Howland hasn't qrote me back, but it is a woman and she will have a CENTERFOLD COLOR SECTION placement for her image.

I'm pleased that WHEREVER it says John Clayton it also says BEEMASTER.COM there too :)

I ended with 5 photos all from the first edition - the new cover is suppose to be a generic shot, in my world - seems like a "Typical" shot chosen by the pubishers.

I swear that is all I know  :-*

Well darn it isn't me either so I am curious also who it is.  But I did contribute many suggestions to Howland and he wrote back to me and said many of my suggestions made it into his new book. That was wonderful to hear that.  Can't wait for the new book.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
