:lol: I agree Hi-Tech. But after 11 years of marriage, and a recent house purchase... I would like stay married and keep living here. :D
Actually, assuming no one else bids on it she is all for it, (aside from having to rent a truck for an 8 hour round trip.) She is even giving me tips on using a sniping service for ebay. (You know, the way you are mysteriously outbid during the last 6 seconds of an auction.)
We have a few friends who are interested in getting started with beekeeping. Also, while 2 hives is enough for my backyard, I may be able to put 4 to 6 hives on some property owned by our church. That plus the extractor would be enough to make it worth it. After that I would probably sell off about half of the leftover boxes.
It is on my watch list. We'll see...
