Newbee in New Mexico
« on: March 13, 2012, 06:34:43 PM »
Hi all!

I am a newbee from southern NM and will be getting my bees in a few weeks. Like my name suggests I also make soap and sell at my farmers market. There are a few beekeepers in the area but haven't had much luck getting them to talk/mentor as of yet. So I am reading books and forums and trying to prepare along with my husband.

Nice to meet you!

Welcome! We make soaps from our honey and beeswax to sell along with our dipped taper candles...we'll have to talk soap sometime (always looking for new recipes :-D)

"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."
