I was going to add another super to my hive but when I was getting  ready I notice about 3/4" from the last frame to the side. Do I leave it all on one end or space it out? This is a deep super.

push all the frames together and toward the center.  this will make it easier in the future to remove those end frames when you inspect and will help keep the bees from drawing wonky comb.

.....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.....
