Dropping back in
« on: February 17, 2013, 04:18:58 PM »
Hi everyone. Just a quick hello and update. I've been inactive for a good while in the forum. Still have my bees, but I'm down to one hive. (about to do a split) - Partly due to drought, and a good bit to inexperience. Had a deadout this morning and thought I smelled bug spray - could have been cold/hunger/robbery too, since we had days of rain (no foraging) and then a hard cold snap.
Getting more into chickens, ducks (pets, "Howard" and "Petunia" Khaki Campbells) - Some kinda mutt chickens that were supposed to be Buff Orpingtons too (uh, no) Learning about "Aquaponics" (totally new route for me - this year.) I'll try to get pictures so we can all chuckle at my ineptitude once I get a handle on it. (Ha! - a handle - yeah, right.)
Glad to be back, soaking up knowledge wherever I can find it.
be happy and make others happy.

glad you are back.  looking toward spring seems to bring lots of folks back.   :-D
.....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.....

Thanks for the replies.  I was happily surprised my ID was still intact, too.
be happy and make others happy.
