Hello all,

I wanted to post (as required for new account) and briefly introduce myself.  I'm currently in the Dallas, Texas area.  My SO and I have in the works - plans to be in E. Texas to fulfill our long-term goals, and she has suggested to me that I take up bee-keeping.

I'm currently doing the research needed to see what's entailed - and from what I've found - I think this will be a long and enjoyable hobby for me/us.

I'll be checking out my local bee-keepers clubs and making contacts, as well.

Thank you,
Rex "Hawk" Smith

Hi Rex,

Good Luck and have lots of fun with your new hobby. It can be relaxing, calming, exciting, nerve wracking not to mention other things.

Very challenging, but extremely rewarding is my experience with the little creatures. Plus you get to meet lots of wonderful people. Beekeepers are the most helpful people around.

I took up the hobby because I was going through a very difficult time in my life and I needed something to focus on. Well the bees truly saved me that first season. Because I found it so challenging, I noticed that I did not think about my problems when I was working with the bees. This is still true to this day.

Stay in touch and let us know how things are going for you

Sincerely
Annette
