Very cool Ken! Thanks :)

"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."

Theodore Roosevelt 1907

Thanks for the video. I had no idea of how to add a package to a OB hive. I just put frames of bees with a q in it.

Great video!  Very educational.

Love your observation hive.  Is it homemade or purchased?

frames with a queen s a good way to load a hive too. And this is a purchased OB hive .Purchased for my wife actually.That was her original extent of bee keeping. She does help in the bee yard when i need it now and is a big help at extracting time.
