I live an hour outside Kansas City, Mo., and will start our first hive next spring. We live on "Beehive Lane", named after my husband's grandfather, Carl Kaltoff, who was a beekeeper in this area. He published in "The Bee Keeper's Journal", and my mother-in-law was on the front cover of one edition in the late 40"s. Needless to say..BIG SHOES TO FILL. I want to start small. learn, and work up to at least 10 hives in the next 3 years. I studied Carl's books and was ready to start 6 years ago...two children later and my husband deployed for three of those years, little time for beekeeping. I love to hear from people, much better than books. Okay, guys, give me the low down. Looking forward to hearing "the good, the bad and the ugly!"

.....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.....
