Phil #1, you are a good story teller. It was almost like being there, watching the action through the screen door with the rest of the family. I think you are exaggerating about the sweat, though...I watered the garden with my excess sweat tonight.
Getting much rain, Westmar? Don't worry about the distances..a Queenslander can go 480km just to get the morning paper :) Hey - I saw drone brood in my strongest hive a couple of days ago, the first time in about 18 months. There is not much action in the honey department, but at least there is some foraging time between storms this year.
