Hello from the frozen tundra!
« on: February 27, 2013, 10:14:23 PM »
I'm a new member from upstate NY. I'm a long time country girl, and one year beekeeper, without much sucess so far. I'm trying again this spring with two new packages, after my last remaining hive succumbed to some myster over the winter.  :'( Hoping to have this as a good resource going forward!

Glad you're here mouse!

"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."

Welcome!!  Did you get much from the storm last night?  It came down pretty hard in the Canangaigua area but luckily didn't last long.

Welcome to the forum, Mouse.  If you crank that Toyota up and let the heater run a while it might thaw out.  :-D

Hang in there with the bees, you've got what it takes to be a beek...dedication!!!!

Welcome!!  Did you get much from the storm last night?  It came down pretty hard in the Canangaigua area but luckily didn't last long.
came down hard, but not for long, so not much accumulation. Don't know if I'm happy or sad about that, I love snow, but I'm about ready for spring.

thank you everyone for the warm welcome and words of encouragment!
