Hello and Welcome!
I'm sure you'll find this forum to be a great site to learn more about bees and beekeeping. Be sure to check out the tutorials on the main Beemaster page.
Please update your profile with your location. Much of beekeeping is very location-specific, so in order to answer any questions you may have, it helps to know where you are.
The 'search' function is very useful when you have questions and want immediate answers. Very often you can find just about any bee topic discussed in a previous thread.
Lastly, I recommend getting involved with a local club. Club often offer beginning beekeeping classes, and are great places to find mentors and get connected to nearby beekeepers. Kentucky has some great clubs:http://www.kyagr.com/statevet/bees/association/index.htm
