Welcome to the forum, Mitch. Check into your local bee club. There are lots of beek that aren't here yet.
In my local club there are 70 to 80 that show up for the meeting. I'm the only one that is here regularly, I think there is one or maybe two others that are member here.
I do keep trying to get them here so they can see how other beeks do things, and learn something new. enough rambling. Beek is very addictive, good luck.
