This will likely never happen again. Most of my cuts to the floor section the colony was located in were already made because there was a hive in this spot previously. I found the queen within the first ten minutes of the cut out. That usually happens wayyyy later. So two gifts. I'll take 'em!

That's the one you told me about?...Sweet!  That queen just looked plain lonely to me.

"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."

It was sure nice to get her early in the game Ken.

Nice video JP. Thanks for sharing.
I'll have to keep an eye on the floor, on inside jobs from now on.
