I have met beekeepers that are doctors, lawyers, farmers, and today on here I find a pharmasist!   I work as a firefighter/EMT and also as a corrections officer and am a team leader on the states emergency response team.     How about you?    Just curious.

I'm a writer and a business owner. I'm also gearing up for figure competition.

I'm Vegan, the main reason for getting bees is well... I really do love them and have always been fascinated by them, even as a child. Also, I'm really concerned with the decline so want to do my part (although small) to help out. I don't have honey bees yet, but looking forward to getting them next Spring, until then I'll keep educating myself, and hopefully network with more beekeeping folks in my area and online too.

Thanks for the info on Michael Bush, I've bookmarked the site. I've really enjoy the information here, I've learned a lot simply by reading posts, saves me from asking some of my questions.

Locally I'm hoping to eventually visit a few beekeepers homes, been a while since I've been around anyone with bees. I did join a beekeeping club in Maryland, so looking forward to attending some of the meetings.

I am a executive chef. I raise poultry and bees and would love enough money to get more land for cattle and a fishing pond and a HUGE garden Smiley

Does your fire truck have an Allison tranny? If so, I'm shifting gears for you. I write software for electronic controls.

Youth ministry...and I love to bring the kids to the hives. At first they're a little hesitant and think it's kinda dorky.  After one visit, they love it.
