I thought it worth mentioning that March 2007 was a true record for the forum with 99 new members and each month we see great growth and I hope and expect it to continue to grow as more and more people learn we are here and others find interest in Beekeeping from the stories in the nightly news.
No matter what your reason for joining (and I see a lot of people getting their bees RIGHT NOW for the first time) I'm proud to have a place where you can meet and exchange ideas and new beekeepers can ask all questions to get them through the first season and ready for the next.
Welcome all new Members, I surely hope to chat with you as time goes on. Please check the many forum topics to see what interest you BESIDES beekeeping, I know you will find OTHER interests to keep you entertained and to give you a sounding board for your thoughts.
Best wishes in the months ahead, keep in touch as you install your bees and please feel free to share your photos with us, we all love the photos :)
