Bee in N Georgia on a Blackberry flower

« on: April 15, 2013, 11:07:55 PM »

Today I start my eighth year of beekeeping.  I always stop by here on the birthday of the blog because all of you have been so helpful to me.  When I first got started (and how the blog got started) I posted on my blog so my family would have some idea about this crazy hobby of mine. 

Then I would have questions and would come over here to Beemaster and ask for help.  I'd put my photos up on the blog and direct people to the blog post to help me with my problem.  And help all of you did....I could count on getting many opinions when I put a question up on this forum.  I could be sure I would learn several ways to approach whatever my beekeeping challenge was.

The blog helped me with all of that because I could easily post so many photos.

So thank you so much to everyone here - too many people have helped me to even try to name them, but I've appreciated every response to my posts on Beemaster and every visit many of you have made to my blog over these last seven years.  I've been thrilled to meet some of you in person: Michael Bush, JP (Jeff Armstrong - his real name!), Brendhan Horne and I've had a phone call with Iddee.

And now to begin year eight! I am more enthusiastic and excited about the bees than ever, as I'm sure most of you are.

Thanks,

Linda T in Atlanta

.....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.....

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."

We should start planning a blow-out for the 10th anniversary.  Maybe we can all come down and camp in your yard... Smiley

My wish is to one day meet you Linda. I love your blog and as I have said before, I have a special place in my heart for you. We both started beekeeping on the same day, both are sagittarius and around the same age.

I have read your blog from the very beginning and all your videos helped me along and I have passed on your good information to other beekeepers.

I can't thank you enough for your continued education and all the sharing you do.

Sincerely
Annette

Thanks for all the support, everybody, and the kind words.  Scott, I remember meeting you in Florida - forgot to put you on my list in the earlier post.  Michael, you are welcome in Atlanta any time.  Annette, I'd love to meet you too - want to go to Lithuania?  Julia, Noah and I are thinking of signing up for a beekeeping tour of Lithuania in July!

 My husbands family is from Lithuania, but we have never been there. It sounds wonderful and I will read about it more on your blog.
