hello from centralia
« on: April 20, 2009, 09:36:10 PM »
I just signed on today and am in process of building a warre style hive.  I won't be getting any bees this year but I am having fun with building the hive.

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.

could have sent you after a swam today.  it was to far up your way for me to take.  let me know if you are interested in getting any this year.  i have had two calls from washington already.
.....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.....

Rodney, welcome to our forum, great you found us.  You are readying for the bees, perhaps you WILL get a chance to catch a swarm, then lookout!!!  You will be held under their spell and will need to know more and more, they are a fascinating thing to watch and study.  THis will be a place where you can tell your tales, stories, experiences, learn lots of stuff and also, make new friends.  Stick around, we love new members.  Have that most most wonderful and great day, health.  Cindi

Welcome!  I have a blast building the equipment as well.  There is something relaxing about making stuff out of wood that does not involve a home repair project which must be completed quickly  ;)
