I got a call today while at work.  The people had called around for about 2 hours trying to find a beekeeper, finally they called an individual who has our hives on their farm.  My wife was in the area, so I called her and she went to check it out. They were on a low branch of a tree that had been cut down.  Home she went, got the box, some frames and sugar water spray bottle and the rest is history.  I'm proud of her.  It seems the beekeeping has rubbed off.... grin

It is better to keep ones mouth shut and be thought of as a fool than to open ones mouth and in so doing remove all doubt.

Cool Bailey, definitely a partner.  I think it grows on them.  It is an adventure sometimes.

David, hey I meant comment a few days ago, but got sidetracked.  You got one special gal there, the fact that she would venture out like that, helping do that stuff is nothing short of cool and cool.  Tell her to keep on keepin' on, she will indeed be that partner-in-crime with ya, yay!!! Takin' my hat off to her, smiling.  Have that great and most wonderful day, lovin' our great live we are groovin' on.  Cindi

and we should not forget those special husbands.  not many would go face first digging into an attic hive to save his wife more stings   grin.  of course...there is always a price for these acts of kindness  evil.

.....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.....
