I am awaiting my first bees. Mid 40,s single with time on my hands so I let a coworker talk me into trying beekeeping. As to how I chose my name I retired from the naval reserve as a construction electrician 1st class. I really enjoyed my time with the Seabees so it just seemed natural

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
