That was a good one Bro!

"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."

Man that looked too easy compared to some other ones you have done. LOL.  Great video as always. I have one lined up in a couple of weeks. I hope it goes as smooth as you make it seem.

Nice video, JP.
We have had 2 swarms here in Jacksonville already. My buddy, Jim got a call from a friend of his on Sunday to come and get a swarm. It was the size of a basket ball. I checked it after he had it in the new hive box and could not find the queen. gave it a frame of eggs and some honey. They were still in there last night. Yesterday at noon they had a large number of bees orientating to the entrances.

Dang cold front hit! Had one lined up today and Friday. They will have to wait until it warms. I'm thinking this could be the last cold front of the year for us and once it clears and warms my gut tells me they will be throwing off swarms left and right!

As usual JP, I just loved this video. You being so calm and having fun just like all the old videos you made. I am going to send this on to a guy I work with who decided to become a beekeeper this year. I will be helping to catch a swarm for him.

Thanks again

Yea I hate it that the cold front came in. I have had a cutout on hold for about four months now. spoke with the owner this week and have planed to hit it around the first of the month.
Can't wait to have some fun.

hope to have a small video camera to tape it with this time if taxes come in? If not I will take pic's for everyone.
