    Re: I can't decide on what extractor to buy ?

    We made an extractor which held two frames. That was bad enough, but the drill was a PITA.

  18. Re: Propolis treatment for dog's eye problem

    Thanks for the replies. I checked out the website listed by Krista. It is definitely not "cherry eye". Vet referred to it as a tumor. It is also only in the outer corner of the eye and more of...
