Welcome to the site.  I am a new bee also, there is plenty of post to read and learn from.  You may want to check into local bee clubs also.

Welcome to you from Northern Ca, which is truly a totally different state from down south.

I think the bees will help to keep you occupied, or obsessed may be a better word. I took on beekeeping during a difficult time in my life and needed something very interesting to focus on. The bees truly filled that void for me. When beekeeping you forget about everything in your life and just live in the moment. They are mesmerizing creatures and you always find fun things to do such as putting your supplies together, painting, catching swarms, meeting other beekeepers,  melting beeswax, just sitting and watching them, etc.. Not to mention the delicious honey which is your reward for taking such good care of them.

Have a great time

So thanks for the welcome. I reside in lake hell  senior. So as I am just starting out- foundation, one long time keeper tells me use the pins and another says wire. So I purchased both along with a wire crimped from dad ant, but I am not smart enough to figure out the red plastic tool. I have enjoyed time in brawley

"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."
