Newbie From Eugene, Oregon
« on: April 06, 2013, 03:20:26 AM »
Just wanted to say "hi" and offer some thanks in advance for all the helpful folks here who offer their knowledge about bees. I recently purchased the components for my first hive from our local beekeeping supplier Glory Bee, and I've been putting together the 10 frame Langstroth hive this past week in anticipation of my bee package which arrives next weekend.

welcome.  you have lots of beekeeping buddies in oregon!

when you get the chance, go into your profile and put your location. it will make it easier in the future.
.....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.....
