I got my bees from where the old chicken ranch in La Grange stood, on which the musical, "The Best Little brothel in Texas" was based.  So I've named all mine the names of the bleep.  Miss Mona, Doatsy Mae, and Taddy Jo.  Fancy was already named.

I love it!

Got quite the little potty keyboard on you don't you?
Yes, John has the family friendly censor board built into the forums. We don't want to teach the kiddies any new words. John does not like emails that say" My child said he learned this word on your forums."

But fret not. That is what the preview button is for. I have seen it slice and dice a few of my posts until I have.... ahem...reworded them.

But that is okay there are four letter words that get through the filter like diet.

I guess I have no imagination, or I just expect mine to get to work so I can steal their honey (if there's enough to steal).

I call my one and only:  "my hive" ;)

brit your hives are easy to name, call the first "Ouch", second "Puffy", third "Epi", fourth "Pen", and so on, you see what I mean, Dang I hate to see someone that loves beekeeping be allergic, you just going to have to be careful, they are fun but nothing is worth getting hurt over.........

Haha - I'd probably call it "my second hive". So there I go - "my first hive", or hive 1 and "my second hive", hive 2.

I guess I'd go to numbering them like many others. An observation hive sounds fun!

Isiah, Jeremiah, Kush, Lamek, Melchizedek, Nabor, Onan, Pharaoh..


Since Lamek had two wives, does Lamek the hive have two queens?
