Hello from Indiana!!!!!!!
« on: May 17, 2006, 03:10:19 PM »
Hello,

I am an inexperienced Beekeeper.  I will be getting my bees in May (23).  I live in Indiana. 8)
I am 15 years old and I have 5 siblings (and 1 on the way).  
I am very excited about beekeeping!  This should be veyr fun and educational and maybe profitable.  I hope.

Thanks,

Alysa

Ho'la Alysa!  I have completed 16 revolutions around the sun and am relatively new to bees too.  I was looking forward to honey this year but don't think my bees are going to be too productive this year, but that's ok, I 've learned a lot and got a lot of wax :)   (great chewing gum)
Bees are lots of fun and very enjoyable.  Have fun; the forum is a great resource. Good luck!

Welcome Alysia:

We use to have a teen forum ( took it out for temporary space needs) - not many teens were active in it and most of them have moved on (including 2 moderators) but if we have a need or desire to restart one (I saw Summerbee has rotated at 25,200 miles per second around the Milky-way as well as 16 full solar rotations That's a heck of a lot of miles. Not to forget we rotate at 1500 miles per hour on our axis, imagine all that at $3.00 a gallon gas.

I'm enjoy Space related stuff and follow the Space Station Missions on NASA-TV all the time - to those who do not know, there is a huge Space Station in orbit well over 5 years, always manned and it usually re-manned every 6 months or so - minimum astronauts two, recently 5, but always up there and moving at approx 25,000 mph around the globe a remarkable EVERY 90 minutes.

They are to pass nearly directly over my area (a full 11 minutes of viewing time without any magnification (although binoculars are very good - telescopes are impractical unless you have very expensive tracking telescopes) on May 27th at 7:58pm est - current orbit at approx 192 miles altitude above the Earth (it varies approx. 20 miles from 180 to 200 during different missions, etc.

But anyways - you didn't mentions the solar stuff - lol. I just wanted to welcome you and I hope you get everything out of the hobby (especially with siblings) that you wish - beekeeping is a great family hobby.

This is a fun and educational forum - I hope you check the many topics and please post in as many as you'd like. We pretty much talk about everything under the sun in the Non-Beeping sections, so if you have other interests or hobbies, please share with us!!! Welcome again.

Ah, space... I am a self-proclaimed space cadet as well.  I drove down to Cape Caneveral once to watch a launch at 4 in the morning, it 's amazing.  I was maybe 5 miles away in a Krispy Kreme parking lot and it literally lights up the entire sky like daylight.  So neat!  I have many conspiracy/coverup theories regarding NASA, (would they really tell us if life was on Mars, ---no!) , but those are for another time.    :wink:
