Thanks so much for warm welcome...
Thanks so much for the tips. I'll definitely check out the equipment this winter. I live near a local beekeeper, he was the one I contacted about four years ago. Both he and his wife was very helpful.
Oh I'll definitely be asking questions. I still have a few beekeeping books, and you have so much information on this site. It will keep me busy for quite a while.
I'm in the White Marsh, I'm joining the Central Maryland Club. I checked their website so I'm looking forward to attending some of the local meetings, and interacting with people locally too.
When I was about seven years old there was a church member who had bees, I remember asking him tons of question. He had a picnic at his house, so my our family went. (I had been reading so much about bees, which is one of the main reasons my father brought my brother and I along.) I remember being the only person that was fascinated by his bees, and so I pestered him with questions. It's a good thing he didn't mind, so he was able to tell me a lot about his babies. I eagerly soaked it in. :)
