I hunt fossils on the beach and in the rivers (scuba), sharks teeth, whale inner ear bones, vertabre etc.

Just getting started with bees and found this site. Look forward to learning!

Thanks!!

Mine is the way our last name was spelled in Norway before my grandfather came to the US. Thomassen became Thompson. I like Thomassen. Smiley

Over the last 4 years I have spent a good 75% of my time dealing with various government employees and more accurately the ones who are our "experts" in the Temporary Foreign Worker Program.

I won't list all of the DUH? ARE YOU FRIGGIN' KIDDING ME? questions I have had to answer and will stick to the one in which my name came about.

I was told that the reason our application was being refused was the position required a Doctorate and in all of my advertisements and applications I had said that no education or experience necessary as we would be willing to train on the job.

This is what I found out that day:
1.  to treat bees one must have special hazardous training
2.  each and every bee was fed and treated one at a time
3.  queen rearing involves genetic splits
4.  the queen bee was the one that was created in a lab

Well, I did not know that.  I then said "Well you happen to be talking to the Queen Bee of all of Canada and you need to listen very carefully to what I have to say in order to hopefully educate you so that you may educate all those around you"

My application was finally approved.

I am in South West Manitoba and the name kinda stuck and it is now the name of my store and website.

Hi Everyone.

I have always been a Packrat so my family / friends nicknamed me Packrat as a child.   I also have a last name of pronounced wires and I am the 3rd.    Hence Packrat3wires.

Basically I use my first initial and last name.  That way I don't have to remember different names for different forums.  Thanks for allowing me to be part of this forum.

Mine is a word Bart made up during a season one episode of the Simpsons where the family is playing Scrabble. I use it on forums if no one has already taken it.
