Thanks Guys for the back up. On second thought I felt my posting might have been a bit corny. But glad I made it.
Two days after the posting I am still looking, reading and learning.
We are quite fortunate in that we have some well experienced bee keepers on this forum.
Back when I was first in the hobby the only way to learn was to associate with another, experienced, bee keeper and through book reading. The inter net has made the learning curve so much easier and quicker.
I kept bees over 30 years ago but due to having to move around a lot through my work I had to sell off all my equipment and leave the hobby behind. Now that I am retired I am able to get back into the hobby that I so much enjoyed years ago. They are a perfect compliment to my rabbits, chickens, goats and garden.
