Welcome to the forum, T.J.  I'm down south of Montgomery.  Glad to hear you're getting *back* into bees.  We all wished we had listened to our fathers/grandfathers more...and on a lot of issues.  I bet as you work with the bees there will be things that come back to you that you had forgotten all about...

Best wishes,
Ed

The biggest changes I would think are varroa mites and small hive beetles and how they affect honey bee management today.  Study up well on them. ;)
