I am registered on a couple other forums, and am looking for a "pleasant" place to reside. Life presents enough drama on its own, I really dont want to add to it on a forum, so am going to try this one and see how often the nasty replies pop up... I am a new beekeeper with 5 hives, but plan on expanding dramatically in the next few years for honey and mead, not to mention I have found that I really enjoy tending to the hives I have.
I guess you could say I am retired....
I am/was! A mechanic, working for a Chevy dealership, truck shops and part owner of a performance shop for nearly 20 years.. My Wife has a masters degree in health and safety, and her job paid very nearly four times what mine did.. so she TOLD me, I needed to stay home, and make sure everything was taken care of so SHE did not have to worry about mowing the yard, taking care of the horses, chickens, bees etc etc when she got home or on the weekends... HOW could I refuse???
Currently, I still build performance engines, and restore chevy trucks as a hobby income, but we have started making mead (melomel) and the wife liked it so much that she has decided we need to expand dramatically and begin turning it into a business for something to do when she retires... Sounds like a plan to me!!! So here I am!!! For better or worse, richer or poorer!
