which airport is closest??

Meridian, MS (about an hour from Bud's) airport code MEI

I booked my tickets already, arriving Thursday 22nd, leaving Tuesday the 27th - I watched the prices for almost 2 months, and it dropped from $488 to $279 from Philly to Atlanta to Meridian - so I saved $200 by waiting using Delta.

PS... Delta hubs thru Atlanta from nearly everywhere to Meridian, so if you choose them, you will likely see Altanta even from the West Coast, as is the searching we did for Irwin.

But I'm all paid for, picked out my window seats and I'm just waiting for the calendar to rotate through a few pages :)

i hope you all will post video and pics again.  i am very disappointed.  was really looking forward to meeting some of you in person........
.....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.....

Ah, this sounds amazing!

We are "newbees" in Western Montana and there happens to be a bee class locally (2 1/2 hour drive) that we hope to attend that weekend.  THANKS so much, if I were closer, I would go!

 :'(

I am so sorry to say that I won't be able to make it this year.  It makes me so sad, because I was soo excited.  Turns out we have a long standing obligation on the "last Saturday in April"  which I thought was the 30th up until about a week ago.  But alas, it is the 24th.  I considered and considered, but I can't really miss our obligation.

I am gonna miss meeting all of you in person and was really looking forward to seeing some experts get into hives and the opportunity to learn soo much!  I will definitely make it next year!

Hope you all have a blast, which I'm sure you will.  Looking forward to the pics.

Gah! I am so disappointed!

love,
ziffa

This is Buds phone for anyone who needs it.
(662) 726-4921
There is very limited cell service at Buds house. If you need to make a cell call you may have to drive a half mile down the road for service.

I just dressed the pig and threw it on ice...just add heat/smoke!

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. 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."

I wanted to be there, but can't this year.  I have to give a talk and install a beehive at the opening of a community garden - I've been committed to this project in the N Georgia mountains in Rabun County for about 6 months and didn't realize that it was this weekend - I thought there was another weekend in April, but apparently not.

Sorry, everyone, I'd love to meet in person.  Maybe next year.
