Newbee from Preble County, OH
« on: October 24, 2009, 08:22:56 PM »
Hello everyone!  My husband I and just recently started beekeeping.  We have two hives and so far have more or less successfully blundered our way through things!  :)  Looking forward to reading/learning from this site!

Welcome to the forum.
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.

Mary, welcome to our forum, wonderful you are here and found us.  Two hives, that is wonderful, it is good to start with two hives at a minimum.  You are delving deep into the secret world of the honeybee, the deeper you go, the more deeply you will be compelled to go, you will be held under their spell, as we all are, as keepers of the bees.  Our forum will be a place where you can spend beautiful time, a place to tell your stories, tales and experiences, make new friends.  The added bonus, we have mountains of wonderful information, all at the tips of your fingers.  If you want to ask questions, which you will, that is human nature, you will find that you will get great answers, from many experienced beekeepers and from ones that are beginning.  It is amazing what even a new beekeeper may glean from their studying and may impart great information to others.  Stick around, we love new members AND....have that most awesomely beautiful and great day, with that good health.  Cindi

.....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.....
