You to John and everyone else.  I had a pretty good year this year.  Still kicking,and so are the kin.   Started year with 3 hives, caught 6 swarms, had to give some away not enough boxes and have 5 hives doing good now.  Have a Happy New Year all year long.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

  Almost through the first day of 2013 with no hassles or bad news, hope this keeps up for you all and it will be a better year than last. Good wishes to all on the forum and your kin.

I am so looking forward to '13.  I am 20 months into beekeeping, and I have three mature hives and  three nucs that were all living as of December 29.  Due to knee replacement about 30 days back, I have not been able to tend my bees, but my youngest son went around and tapped the hives to see if there would be a resulting buzz on Dec. 29.  All of the colonies buzzed, and they had large stored going into the winter, so I am hopeful. 

Last summer, my second summer with bees, I was reluctant to make changes in the hives.  The engineer side of me cautioned that "if one does not know what they are doing, it is best to do nothing."  My knowledge has now grown to the point that I am willing to do some simple things like: splits, brood interruption, drone frames and such.  I look forward to interacting with more with my bees.  Still, I will make changes only when I think they are necessary. 

With more confidence, I am looking forward to a Happy New Year.
