Welcome to the forum Dennis.
With winter coming, it is a good time to read, read, read. You might want to look for a local bee keeping club, They can be a big help for years to come. They might also have a mentoring program to work with you. And of course you are welcome to ask questions of the forum. We are here to help other beeks (and to toot our own horns if we do something new and exciting for ourselves.) -Mike
