Jumping waist deep in the hive
« on: April 16, 2007, 04:27:12 PM »
Southwest Virginia boy here. Just bought my first 2 boxes of bees the other day. Got 2 supers w/10 frames a piece. Made me a nice treated stand for them. After reading the forum  today, along with beemaster and gobeekeeping, I'm in for a experience. I admit that although i've had a general interest in beekeeping, I never really planned ahead. The opportunity arose and i jumped on it.
Thanks to the moderators and members of this board for your insight!

.....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.....
