You guys are awesome!
Thanks for not trolling me and making me feel bad lol.  Im learning as I go.
<snip>
I read something about this nut, er, idiot, er, uh, somebody...that left an *unlit* smoker in his jeep.  It wasn't lit.  But when I, er...he returned to the jeep and opened the door he couldn't see the steering wheel for the smoke...really, really, really thick smoke.  No physical damage but bad, bad, bad smoke smell....  I, er...he knew it was bad when he picked the jeep up from the carwash and the detail guy told me, ah, er...him that he "...was wrong, I thought I could get all the smoke smell out, but...".  :-\

We learn from our mistakes...sometimes the lessons are a bit harsher (smokier?) than other times.... :)

We have tried to get advice from the few bee keepers in our area and each one will tell us something completely different, it can be very frustrating.

Welcome to beekeeping!!!   :cheer:  Just take it all in, and make the decision that makes most sense to you.

We did the comb transfer to the empty frames and it all worked great.  Thanks so much for all the advice guys.

We used the hive tool to cut the comb from the lid
Ill try creating another thread here and show the pictures.  I tried to document this special event the best I could lol!
