Thanks everyone for the praise. Gotta love that, who doesn't run on praise?
John, you said something very interesting. You said that the more you know, the more that you find out that you don't know. Your father was indeed correct. I was astounded when I sat for all those hours listening to these masters. People that have devoted their life to apiculture, agriculture and all else who knows what. They have been to university to study about our dear friends, apis. they are still in university studying and performing research. They were even stumped at times when a course member would ask a question now and that they did not have an answer to. They are still learning too.
I think that I may have learned alot of good stuff. I do not feel that I have even touched the smallest tip of this iceberg. But I am going to try and get closer to the centre, maybe then, years down the road I will feel comfortable to be able to mentor others. That would be a wonderful thing to do. Imparting knowledge is a wonderful gift to pass along. So many members of this forum probably don't even realize how much their words of encouragement, advice, and so on impact the lives of others in positive and wonderful ways. Let's keep learning and learning and pass on our learning to others who ask for the learn. All have a wonderful day. Cindi
