hi Alan.  it's always great to hear from other countries and learn about their beekeeping practices.  jump right in.  don't be shy  :-)
.....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.....

Al, welcome to our forum, so nice that you found us.  Do you wish to be called Al or Allen?  Please identify.  Two bee colonies, wonderful.  We have a few members from other parts of the world and it is always so neat to hear of beekeeping practices in other parts of the world.  This will be a place where you can have people that love to listen and give advice when asked. It will be a place where you can tell your stories, tales and experiences and you will also make some new friends, stick around.  Have that wonderful day, life and great health.  Cindi
