Hello from West Tennessee
« on: November 21, 2010, 11:19:08 PM »
Just wanted to say hello, and tell ya'll this is an awesome forum.  I was planning adding bees to our farm this coming spring, but it looks like it will have to wait until the spring of 2013.  My two days a month and two weeks a year  part time job is once again sending me on another all expenses paid year long tour to the middle east.  I plan on learning all I can between now and then and sharing this new adventure with my son.  As much as I'd like to start this spring I just don't want to put any more jobs on my family while I'm gone.  They will be busy enough with the chickens, goats, quail and ducks as it is.

God bless you Brad and thank you! Check in when you can...you can still learn tons about bees while you're gone. When you get back we'll be here for you!

"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."

keep your head, (and other parts) down.  we'll be here when you get back

others from this site have deployed one place or the other, and there are a lot of former military turned beekeepers here.  

feel free to write while you are away and please do keep reading.  also, when you have time, please put your home location in your profile.
.....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.....

Brad, welcome to our forum, great that you have found us.  As they say, all good things take time.  You will one day keep bees.  In the meantime, when you have time, begin to study and understand about them, you will find how deeply you soon become held beneath their spell.  Have that wonderful, awesome day, love, peace and health, Cindi
