The Art of doing a forum like ours is KEEPING IT REAL! Keeping my lone colony loss might have gone unnoticed, and as a new package arrived I could have started photos and film shots. But in order for us to all grow, we need to share the good and bad. I'm hopeful that much good will come once we finally break the cold spell which may be happening here  now - we are getting temps in the 50s finally in the day, this could be the beginning of Spring.

I'm really looking forward to doing video that I'll have hosted at Youtube.com so that many more people can watch. It is nice having the technology, di-def digital camcorder, spankin' new laptop with wereless connection to the net. Making rough cut films and editing them down to 4 or 5 minute clips really can easy a production studio look - especially audio and musuc dubbing in shorts are nice touches.

So, I'm looking forward to a nuc or swarm to get going, of course go package again, but hoping a bit different this time - just to say I've tried something new.

Times are tough for beekeepers, we have our hands full and I surely hope that the commecrcial end of the busniess goes better than the typical home spun backyard beekeeper has been going. I'll be starting a MULTI-POLL soon, asking what percentage loss you have had and what you suspect the cause of death. You will have many choices, so don't think it is a narrow pool - our polling system allows for many answers and produces very accurate results.

John Yeah, do the poll, it would be interesting to see what happened where.  Greatest of days.  Cindi
