Tiny little swarm 2/25/2011

A little after swarm (virgin swarm) in Deltona, FL.

"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."

Good one!

Love the interaction.

This little swarm acted just like an early August swarm I got last year.

And it just went out on You tube.   That was a very entertaining video.   I really hope that swarm makes it.   It is great seeing people that want "their"  bees to stay in the yard.

That swarm is waaay too small for you to mess with Scott. I think you should probably box all them small ones up and send em to me.

Box them or just stick them in an envelope and mail them?

So around the 6:53 point where the lady says, I don't think they are African bees. Then you say, "I don't see a one of them carrying a spear." Are you racist and why do white people equate Africa with spear carrying natives if they aren't racist? I didn't find any humor in the remark. Do you think that there are no African Americans that may keep bees and be on this forum?

the only African American i have ever met was white.  lighten up.

  he could have made the same comment if she'd said she didn't think they were South American or Australian.
.....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.....

Thanks for your comments folks, it's what makes the trouble taken to make these videos worthwhile!

showme714, I am absolutely not what one would consider "racist" and actually resent your trying to pull that card out. I grew up next to the largest self governed black community in the U.S. and most of my friends growing up were black, many of whom I'm still proud to call friends. I currently live in an area that is rich in ethnic diversity and have friends of all races, none of whom would have taken offense at that remark.

I do however apologize to you if this got your dander.

showme 714,how in the hell do you think that was a racist remark.people like yourself try and analyze everything that is said by people of other races and try to make it a racist thing.if a person other than black says the (N) word they are racist.if a white person shoots a black its racist.i guest you will get jessie jackson or al sharption,by the way are bigest racist people i know, to post on this fourm about racist people.so i guest im a racist person too by posting this,but let me tell you this i probability have more black friends than yourself.so with all that's said this is not a racist fourm.     schawee

Hardwood thank you for your explanation of a question you didn't have to answer. You did so with class and I appreciate it.

You know nothing about me except what I choose to reveal and even then you have no idea if it's true. You have no idea what race I am nor what people I'm like. My question was not directed at you. I didn't ask you how many Black friends you had yet you felt a need to tell me you probably have more than I. Hmmm? I never thought that this was a racist forum and didn't imply so by my question to Hardwood which he so graciously answered without all this questionable rhetoric you are putting out.

I'm a fan of your work and would like to remain so, so let's not get into a pissing contest. I'm moving on now.

Ditto skflyfish, great job with the interaction/education.  I loved you're calm demeanor and confidence...both were key to the whole process on multiple levels.
