Wing It because 1) That's what the girls do from dawn to dusk and 2) That's what I do with life in general, beekeeping in particular.

I just started beekeeping this spring, so Im a newbee! Hivemaster is more of a joke, at least for now. Maybe one day...There is lots to learn, but thats what I like about it, its very interesting.

BeautifulBees was a simple choice. Standing over a hive checking the health of the colony and collection of honey I remember saying to myself, "Beautiful, just beautiful."  And the bees just have done the rest.

My initials  JPP,  and I get bees  do trap-outs cut-outs swarm retrievals and the like.  Am 77 years young have 8 hives and 1 top bar . keeps me busy. Normally I give the bees that I don't need to friends.   Make all my woodenware, give that to them too to get them started in the art of beekeeping.. Belong to the best Bee club in USA, Forsyth County Beekeepers, and NC Beekeepers Assoc...   I wanted to be JPthebeeman but was already taken...HAHA. He is in a different generation  47  and me 77..

Hi, I'm AgedMead. Mead is wine made from honey. It GREATLY improves with age. I sure hope I do, too. I don't drink alcohol - I'm allergic - but I do make mead with my honey. My first efforts were accidental, and were given many compliments by discerning wine lovers. I get a better financial return per pound produced by making honey into mead, and it is fantastic trading ware, and makes excellent gifts. My other reason for choosing this name is so it is not the same as it is on my other website / chat / posting places, except World of Beekeeping.

Blackbird - Nice poem. Do you like Robert W. Service? William Shakespeare? Shel Silverstein? Edgar Poe? Walt Whitman? Dr. Eric Mussen? Weird Al Yankovic? Others? Robert Service is probably my favorite poet.

We have a saying in our family, "John (husband) is perfect, Matt (son) is always right, but I'm the Mama and I always win. So in honor of my wonderfully supportive family I chose Jpmrmw.

I've had this name (minus the 1) since the internet was created.  The one got added at some point and has just never bothered leaving.

It was my first email.  And well, it is just easier to have one for everything.   I know it is frowned upon but remembering a slew of names, and which passwords go with what names is just crazy.

Anyway, BBrown is my first initial and last name.  "COD" is an acronym of the type of plane that I flew in the Navy, and the "s" is plural.  Works for me!

I selected Tupelogirl as I live  near a Tupelo swamp, love tupelo honey and and by weird chance, live on a road named Tupelo Dr! Seems fitting, doesn't it? I am very close to the area they filmed Yulee's Gold, a movie involving beekeeping in northern Florida, where I live.

I tried to get Beemaster but that one was already taken.  :roll:  I guess I wasn't feeling very creative when I signed up.

There is also part of me that having your real name in this type of forum lends some credibility, especially since I am new and unknown in this community. I would like to meet some people here and make some friends. I think sharing my real name is a good start.

My is the name of one of my horses  :oops:  When I bought her, her name was already Honey, I have decided to make her show name Honey Gold. Now I have taken up beekeeping the name works well for this part of my world too :)

On horse forums I use the name of my other horse Lena so thought it was only fair Honey got a look in on this one lol.
