I hate to say it but some times you just got to back away, for some it seems it just isn't worth it.
Two bee clubs in the area have had a large increase in membership, people are going to save the world by raiseing bees. Supriseingly a number of them, after being stung a few times, and have sold out at a loss in a very short time.
A durn shame but it's happening, perhaps its one of those fad things.
Some time you just have to say this isn't my cup of tea.
The worst thing I see and hear is other people saying, just ignore it it will get better ! Maybe it will, but that just ain't necessarly so.
Go ahead " experts ", lay it to me, I'm ready
