Salutations from New Zealand
« on: May 30, 2011, 06:55:07 PM »
or as we say here New Ziland...

I kept bees years ago before I had my children, and then had no time left, and my hives dwindled to one.... then, i don't want to say!

I adored my bees and was sure I could recognize them out in the field, yeah mad I know.

I am interested in keeping bees again, but a lot has changed since I last had them. So any kiwi beekeepers out there, I would be keen to hear from 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."

Welcome, hope to see you in the down under section.
