Hi From Brisbane Australia
« on: June 08, 2009, 08:07:19 AM »
Hi ,

I'm from Brisbane, Australia. I recently inherited several hives from my late Grandfather. Although I spent many childhood years helping with extracting honey and hive inspections  etc. this will be my first season going solo. I'm sure there is a lot to learn but  really looking forward to it.

G'day David,

Good to know that there is someone else in this town on the forum.


Looking forward to meeting you sometime. Have sent you a pm

On the outer Barcoo where the churches are few,
   And men of religion are scanty,
On a road never cross'd 'cept by folk that are lost,
   One Michael Magee had a shanty.

Now this Mike was the dad of a ten-year-old lad,
   Plump, healthy, and stoutly conditioned;
He was strong as the best, but poor Mike had no rest
   For the youngster had never been christened,
