I'm back.
« on: May 20, 2011, 12:43:45 PM »
I spent a lot of time here about 5 years ago, the dates are kind of blurry, when I first got into beekeeping. I had to change my life, completely. I got away from my bees and other things while I concentrated on taking care of things like finding food, clothing and shelter. I'm back now. I have one hive that has survived my neglect and absence and 2 packages coming tomorrow. My new home (and theirs) is a 127 acre horse farm outside of Ocean City, Maryland.

I decided I better start a refresher course on bee keeping, while not a complete newb, I may be able to avoid some of my past mistakes by reviewing and reminding myself of the proper way to do things. Once again, I look to your experiences to teach myself.

welcome back.  i remember you  :-D  glad you have a survivor hive.  sometimes they are the best!
.....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.....

    Welcome back!  Wondered what happened.  Now I know...
Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)
