I just finished my observation hive - THANKS Michael Bush for the inspiration to build one at the Northeast Treatment Free Beekeeping Conference.  The hive is installed on my porch railing with the entrance facing away from the porch.  The inside of the hive rotates 360 degrees so you can look at either side.  I will put some bees in next spring.

Very nice, I like the key lock..

Now I hope you have a nice rocking chair on that porch, or you may want to ask for one for Christmas grin

Thanks Rob....Yep, with twin 6 year olds I definitely wanted the locks Smiley

As for the rocking chair, check - I definitely have that, and I just finished my first batch of homebrew beer so now I have something to drink while I watch ...

.....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.....

Kathy, the problem is that they are already afraid of the bees so I am trying to go the extra mile to make them less afraid... Smiley

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
