Back to beekeeping again
« on: March 14, 2010, 11:38:54 AM »
Hello all. I am in Washington and after a 15 year hiatus I am back to keeping my own bees again. Kept them for 8 year when I was in high school and college and am excited to be doing this all over. Starting 3 hives this spring and will see what it turns into. If anything like I used to be it will be big. :P

welcome.  another PNW member!  this is looking like it will be a good  year.
.....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.....

Belarsis, welcome to our forum, great you found us.  It is funny how so many people have taken care of the honeybee, taken a break, but always returned.  Wouldn't you say that we are all deeply held beneath their spell, their secret and most beautiful little world that we get to be involved with, lovely.  Stick around, we love new members.  Do have that most awesome and wonderful day, with that same health.  Cindi
