Sorry beebiz! I can see that you real reasons to give me some lectures.
Finsky, I appreciate your apology, I accept it, and I forgive you.Jack Parr wrote:
I would also like to know if any who were offended by Finsk's remarks, have attempted to learn HIS language? Hmmmm.
That would be in the country of FINLAND.
First, I am well aware of the fact that Finsky hails from FINLAND.... I checked his profile, plus right under his avatar it says, "Location: Finland 60 north degree!"
Next, no sir I have never tried to learn Finnish or Swedish. But, the last time I noticed, English was the language that was used to communicate on this forum.
As I said, I have never tried to learn the native tongue of Finland, but I have
learned some German and some Spanish. One of the first things that I was taught about using a language other than my own was that one should NOT
use the adjectives found in another language unless one knows the impact that the adjectives used might carry in the other language.
I now understand and believe that Finsky meant no offense by his remarks. I also believe that he now knows why his remarks were so offensive to me. He has now apologized to me in a way that I have been able to understand that it is
an apology. And, I have forgiven him. I harbor no bad feelings or ill will toward him. And, I would welcome his input in the future.TwT wrote:
beebiz, here's some pics and info about a honey press,,,,, this guy made it because he uses topbar hives, if I can find some more I will post it......
Thank you for this information TwT. I've read the entire beekeeping portion of Mr. Satterfield's site. And, I have been considering building a honey press based on his design. And, I also noticed that he says, "Next, the comb is put into a bag for pressing. The bags I use are nylon mesh laundry bags that I purchase at local discount stores . Similar bags are sold in SCUBA diving shops." But, #1, I have been unable to locally locate the nylon mesh laundry bags that he speaks of. #2, there are no local diving shops that I am aware of. All of this inspired my original question:beebiz wrote:
...what kind of material should I purchase to strain my "crush & strain" honey?
And, that one simple question led to all all of this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This must be beekeeping and it must be in the USA!! :lol: COLVIN wrote:
GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR BEEKEEPING BUT I THINK YOU CAN HANDLE 2-3 HIVES AS EASY AS ONE. IT IS A VERY ENJOYABLE HOBBY.
With the condition of my back as well as other physical problems, there is no way that I could handle 2 or 3 hives if they were kept in the Lang deeps. Using Lang mediums gave me hope that I could handle 1 or maybe two. But, after Finsky and Michael's suggestion to use the horizontal hives, I feel sure that I can probably handle a dozen or more! Simply because of the fact that it can be done without all of the heavy lifting.Jack Parr wrote:
beebiz, the world will not think less of you if you are disabled and cannot do certain things. Although you state that you had no intention of dwelling on YOUR disability, you somehow managed to make IT the focal point of your argument. So what's it gonna be?
I realize that the wold will think no less of me because of my inabilities to do certain things. And, really wouldn't care if they did. The "personal" reasons of which I spoke refers to my own problem with dealing with the idea that I am disabled. To look at me, you would never know that there was a thing in the world wrong with me except that I am about 50 pounds overweight. And, the looks from others in the past have spoke volumes to this! But, the real "kick in the groin" is the fact that I am only 45 years old.... I've not been injured in an accident, I've not been wounded in combat, nor was I born with a debilitating affliction. And, in my world unless the aforementioned circumstances apply, a 45 year old man is not supposed to be
disabled!! Yet, I am. And, mentally I don't deal with it very well. That's why I don't like to have it "in my face."
When I made my original post, I had no
intention of dwelling on my disabilities. But, thanks to the direction that this thread went, I had little choice but to make "IT the focal point" of my argument, as you say.
So, what it will be is this. I will very seldom utilize my disabilities as the focal point of my requests for information about beekeeping. But, if I am doing or wanting to do things in a manner which is outside the "norm" because of my disabilities, and someone tries to deter me from using methods that are outside the "norm," I will introduce the fact of my disabilities in order to educate that person as to the "method to my madness." That
is how it will be
Oh, and thank you for the "good luck" wishes.... in any event!
