>>>we all do it differently and we all think we do it the right way.<<<
You should say we all do it the right way, not think we do. We all have different goals, different climates, different bees. We do it the way that works. That is the right way.
Example... A guy asked me a question last week. I explained what he should do. He replied: "So that's how you do it". I said "no, I keep bees for a different reason then you. That is what you should do for the way you keep bees".
Ozark, go into beekeeping to have fun and learn a thing or two about a fascinating little creature. They are much more resistant than you can imagine. You will do fine if you just relax and enjoy them.
