great pictures.  i think you should keep the shorts, sandals, and loose sleeves.  it's a test of your speed and coordination to see how fast you can run and strip at the same time!!   evil

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.....

Your bees look great and building comb very nicely. One tip though, When working with new comb that the bees have made be sure to hold it in the direction of gravity or it will break off. Once they have filled the frame it is much stronger because its held by all its sides and bottom.
