Hello From Upstate SC
« on: April 03, 2009, 06:54:48 AM »
I'm fairly new to beekeeping, although been thinking about doing it & reading material on the subject for the last 5 or so years. Started by going to the NC Bee School, about a year ago. Then, I started my bee yard with two hives, they wintered well, so now I have increased to 6. I have a mentor who's been keeping bees since he was 13. Now he's 75! He's been a huge help. Glad to have found this forum & look forward to interact with it's members.

Welcome to the forum.
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.

Ken, welcome to our forum (my Husband's name, you must be a great guy, smiling).  This will be a place that you will learn that you love to spend time, a place that you can tell us all your stories, tales and experiences, and lean on us for advice.  Stick around.  Have that great, most wonderfully wonderful day, health wishes to us all.  Cindi
