Glad to see you'll be able to cope with the wait (for today anyway). :) Spend the winter with us, read old posts, research all over the net, and just learn learn learn. You'll have a good time visiting during the winter months with some really fun people on this forum. Maybe this winter we'll actually get the chat room going good since most people will be stuck inside. Alot of us are "outdoorsy" people, with gardens, or we hike, hunt, do woodwork, or whatever - so the warm weather has us outside. But the cold will bring us in, and boredom (and ideas) will set in. Before long we'll all be chatting about what plans we have for spring - concerning bees, flowers, vegetable gardens, bee hive designs, and of course bee hive splits for expansion.
Welcome aboard. MANY people on this forum didn't have hives for the first few months after joining, and I think there are still some that are waiting until spring for their first hive, even though they joined during the summer.
And check out the many other forums through the main site. There's stuff for nearly every one - cooking, gardening, christian fellowship, and more. Plus, if there's an idea you have, send it John's way (Beemaster). He may be willing to start other sections or forums if it seems interesting.
Good to have ya' here. :)
