Lela's Swarm
« on: May 16, 2012, 12:41:59 AM »
Got a tip about a swarm in Fountain City, TN.  Gave the lady a call and they were still there so we headed that way.

Sorry for the quality of the vid at first.  Got it figured out in the end and fixed it.  :roll:

Looks like your boy is having the time of his life on your bee calls. Makings of a great little bee keeper there.

It's so cool to see dad and son working the bees together!

"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."
