These puns and metaphors are so confusing. I must be getting mixed signals.

So now I should throw alcohol and tenting into the mix......Kinky!  grin
That was you sharing a beer with your chemist in NC and you staying warm by moving south.  Ok, I have a limited number of emoticons to work with here.   grin

See, there you go. Winter project!

Get the powers to be to list and add a few hundred icons so we can have better conversations.

I'd ask, but I'm sure my posts are red flagged somehow and are sent straight to a bunch of moderators within seconds of posting. They should respond very shortly.   grin

One way to keep your head in the game is to skip to the Down Under site. They are just starting their season and so will be solving problems that we will soon be seeing. Only six more days until they start getting longer. These 10 degree nights will soon be forgotten. Smiley

Bees were flying real strong today, fed them some, watched them bringing pollen in. These were the bees I removed day before Thanksgiving.

If winter isn't too harsh/late I'll get swarm calls late February.  grin

JP,

I hate you... Wink  Swarm calls in February, that's just rubbing it in.  My bees may get a few days for cleansing flights during that time if they're lucky.

Here's a link to additional plans if you're looking for some.  I don't remember where I got it but I've made a few things off of it.

75 here today bees are going to and fro, have some cleaning out supers I harvested from a few weeks ago. Looks and feels like spring.

Great shorts weather! Of course I'm not rubbing it in or anything!  grin

Oh, and just got a bee call from Terminix. One of their customers wants a live removal, they spray for $275.00 and spray again if they come back in spring.

Wrong on so many levels and leave the rotting hive right where it is.  embarassed

Good luck with your surgery. By the way, how on earth did you tear you labium? shocked

And I didnt even know I had one of them until I tore it  grin

We were doing our yearly in-service training and our over zealous training officer was demonstrating, on me of course, an arm bar technique. Well, as much as I would like to say that I am as flexible now at 37 as I was at 27 I am not. He went a little too far with it and after a loud 'pop' and wonderful nauseous sensation, I went to the E.R.

Yeah, I always preferred to use the reverse goose neck come-along because of that, just as easy to apply and more secure in holding the perp. 

I used to carry an extra hive in the trunk of the squad car April-July.  Got a lot of swarms that way.
