>I always liked the expression The Bees Knees but I'm not quite that advanced yet.

It's always better to have the bees on your ankles than your knees... you know what happens after they get past there...

Well, my name kind of speaks for itself. I started beekeeping when I had a large swarm of bees landed in my front yard. Ironically, I had purchased my beginners beekeepers kit the week before. Lucky for me I had made contact with a beekeeper last fall at our local county fair and gave him a call. He laughed at my store and offered his help with collecting the swarm. It took us 3 hours to collect the swarm and placed them in a deep super, which they barely fit.
Since that time, I have split that hive into 4 other hives! These are a great bunch of "free bee". I'm having a great time beekeeping. Also, I was born in 1968, thus the last part of my name.

Hello!
Great thread. I'm always interested in people's online names.
Back in '96 when I first signed up for email, I had two turkeys, two dogs, two cats, two ducks, and two chickens.  :yippiechick: :yippiechick: :bee: :bee: At that time, I lived in a 10 x 55 trailer that looked like the rendition of Noah's ark in the documentary. So, I had "my ark." So far only one other has had that name, someone in the Netherlands. So if you come across MyArk anywhere in cyber land, it is me,so say howdy.

Hello from UK.  Some good stories about user names! In the eighties I played in a folk rock band in Hong Kong. My preferred name for the band was 'Salamagundy' (after a Victorian vegetable dish) but I was outvoted and we became 'Frogs in Ginger' (after a popular and delicious dish in the Hong Kong dai pai dongs.) Guess I'm a bad loser.... ;)

Not many Black folks in America keepin' Bees nowadys; so, I slip the Bro (Brother) in front of Lroy (short for, Leroy, with that added country-ness for the Rednecks)... Lookin' forward to learnin' and adding to this forum as a new beekeeper -- and, as a mature adult.
Peace to You and Yours! BroLroy

When I registered, I was looking for something to reflect the rural Southern Arizona where I was raised and now, again, reside. Those who "run cattle" here (some folks might call it "ranching", but around here, that could mean a variety of things, aside from cattle) often refer to a really good cow hand (some folks call them "cowboys" but around here, that isn't a very definitive term) as either a "wrangler" or a "vaquero."  As in "Jimmy's a hekuva wrangler," meaning "I have a lot of respect for Jimmy's horsemanship and knowledge of the cattle business." 
As for the Skep, it wasn't just happenstance.  I've been building my own Langstroth boxes (commercially procured as well as self-built) since 1968.  I've designed a lot of configurations the bees have hated and a few pieces they love.  I haven't tried a woven skep, but I like the concept of beekeeping being an ancient art. 
So I became the SkepWrangler because I want to practice the noble art of beekeeping in a highly proficient manner.

Hello, i'm new to beemaster. I chose the name which is obvious to everyone, my local. I know I'll find this forum beneficial and will start beekeeping in the Spring. I appeciate those who participated in the Wildlife Pro Networkseries on "beekeeping". Hope to make new friends here. Merry Christmas everyone!

If there's something stange, in your neighborhood.  Who ya gonna call?  Bee Busters!

The first cutout that I did; a friend and I made a Bee Vac.  We accidentally killed more bees than we saved.  There were busted bees all in the vacuum container we had constructed.  It was certianly a trial and error learning exercise.

When I was 6 years old I loved Bruce Lee and superman. I was a hyper only child, left alone a lot.
I took my white socks pulled them up as far as possible over my white "long johns" and my white long john long sleve shirt.
I took a colored towel and tucked it in my shirt like a cape. I took wash cloths and put them by my little bicepts like big muscles. Then the coup de gras: a few washcloths for an over sized cod peice.
Then I would run around the house, jumping off the stairs, back of couches, over tables, and screaming MINYA MINYA MOOOOOOOO!

I talked my reluctant cousin Mike into "announcing" me to our parents "ladies and gentalmen minya moo

 It has been my online name since 1998.

I've recently started working with leather, making various items, and the reaction I get most often when someone new sees one of my items is: Oh My G.d! That is cool!

I wanted to give people an email address if they wanted to contact me specifically about a craft item that I could put on a business card and OMGleatherworks is what my wife came up with and I liked it.

I'm not trying to be commercial here, just telling the story.

Well along with only eating natural and raw honey, I also only eat natural meat. Wild fish or venison. Didn't want to be halibut man so buck man was the name that stuck. Raised all my kids on venison fish and honey. :-D
It started out fun with 800 hives...and its still fun with 2500.
