Thanks and Welcome Jinglebill:
Glad you found the forums and I hope you find all the help you need within these members and their posts. I'm not sure how many countries we have now, but it is a really impressive number and we should see 1000 members within a few days :)
Welcome aboard, and you are right - there has become a very good resource for beekeepers everywhere. It's a pleasure to offer the webspace and my basic computer skills to make the forum possible, I really enjoy reading all the different mannors which people keep bees.
Have fun :)
