Hello from Scranton!
« on: June 18, 2006, 12:21:18 PM »
Hello, my name is Joshua Best.  I live in The Electric City (Scranton, Pa.) and I work as a Dialysis Technician. I'm 33 and celebrating my 3rd Father's Day, today!  I keep a few hives at my dad's place, about 25 min. north, as I live in town where it isn't really suitable.  I've kept bees for about 5 years but they've always been in my head.  My grandfather and uncle both kept bees and I've been enthralled ever since.  It's like a sickness!  One of which I am glad to be afflicted.  I know you folks understand.  Some other intrests include: music, flying(I'm a wannabe pilot), horses,  hiking, mtn biking, and Nerf Assasin. :mrgreen:

Hello...I think I have the beekeeping flu too :) .  I keep saying "Ok , if I let the pasture go one more week without haying, the bees can get more out of the wildflowers..."

Joshua,

My Grandparents (on my mother's side) were Bests from eastern PA who came west in about 1910.  My greatgrandfather Smith was also from PA--his whole family kept bees and I guess they still do.
Welcome aboard.

Most of the "Bests" of my lineage hail from Ky.  Around Louisville, Elizabethtown.. But who knows, maybe Horace had ties to that clan.  Anyhow, we're all related somehow.  So it's good to meet you, brother!
