Hello from NE Washington!!!!
« on: January 21, 2012, 12:53:49 AM »
Here is the long and the short of it. Bought my father in laws failing bee business in 92 ( cause I didn't know any better  :-D ) strugled for about ten years. Finally started to turn it around and now run 2500 hives and enjoy all the hard work.
 
 I am probably not your typical member, ( could be wrong ? ), but I am  assuming most on here dabble with the bees or are sideliners. I think all of that is great. I am just glad I found the site to glean more valuable information from other bee brothers and sister.  :).

welcome.  we have both hobbyists and pros, but probably more of the hobby type. 
.....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.....
