Hello from Casar NC
« on: May 11, 2009, 04:49:46 PM »
Hello,
My name is Damien and I am new to the beeworld. I am currently working hives with my girlfriend's Dad and brother. Who are also new. We started off with a Wild swarm last summer and have since purchased three new colinies. Soon after getting the new hives home our colony from last year swarmed. So we now have 5 boxes 4 of which are very active. We are having a lot of fun. I look forwar to posting about our experiences and reading about everyone elses.

Welcome...

How far is dirty ankle from bath, nc?  :?

I live near black ankle, but it's a long ways from tarboro.   :roll:   :evil:

Have you read Henry King's book???

Damien, welcome to our forum, so nice you have found us.  This WILL be a place where you can tell your stories, tales and experiences -- also a place where you can learn stuff, and make new friends.  Stick around, it will be worth your while.  Have that great and most awesome day, health. Cindi

iddee,

You do know that there is a little village (hey, it is not big enough to be called a town, ya know) up the road a ways from me that is also named "Bath"! I guess Illinois needed a 'Bath' too with all of those dirty politicians!

BTW

Welcome to the forum! There are some good folks on here and ask away on the questions, even if they do not know the answer, I am sure that there will be someone on here to answer anyways!  :-D

You' ll get good answers, wacky answers and sometimes correct answers!  ;)

Dirtyankle's name started me thinking. Not only does NC have a black ankle, dirty ankle, and bath, but a trip down hwy. 62 is a real adventure. If you start in horneytown, going east, you will get to high point before reaching climax.

Now get your mind out of the gutter.   :-D   :-D

Dirtyankle, it's time for a response from you.   :?

Looks like bath is about 300 miles from the dirty ankle. As for the book I have not read it. Is is a must read for bee enthusiasts?
