Good catches my friend! Great idea for the cutout at Bud's! I can't wait!

"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."

Great video and great idea with the wall.   Don't forget to run some romex and water pipe through that wall to make the cutout interesting.

I got a call yesterday about a swarm. I went and was able to catch a real nice swarm. I got another call from the same lady saying some more bees have moved to the same bush. I'm curious to see tomorrow if it's another swarm or exactly what is happening there!! It's in a subdivision, so their not enjoying having the bees there!!lol
