    One of these days I'm going to win the lottery. Then I'm just going to keep farming until it's all gone.
  2. Re: Dan Rather report on bee shortage in Calif almonds

    I want to preface this by saying that I'm a small time hobbyist and I'm not even qualified to carry a hive tool for most of the people on this forum. That said…I live in the Midwest where corn is...
  3. Re: Your opinion please - who is qualified to mentor?

    I still wouldn't show up early and I would insist that their laundry be washed in public. Isn't that why clubs have a public forum…Robert's Rules of Order and all that? YOU didn't pick this fight....

  5. Re: Your opinion please - who is qualified to mentor?

    Insecurity breeds contempt. It sounds like they want you to show up early for a trip to the principle's office. Isn't this club suppose to be a place to share information among folks with a common...

    Re: Extractor Size for number of hives.

    For me mixing vocation with avocation is a strange thing. I have been a professional photographer for over 4 decades on either a part time or full time basis. Years ago when it was more of a...

    Re: Extractor Size for number of hives.

    One of my previous posts lists the elaborate processing equipment I used to own for 20 hives. All I can say in response to Micheal Bush's post is "Amen".

    Re: Extractor Size for number of hives.

    I'm divorced so I don't have anyone to please other than my dogs. I've made great strides toward cleaning out my garage but at this point even a motorcycle would be out of the question.

    Thanks for all the feedback! For me the ECO thought went up like a rocket and came down a dead stick. The more I think about this, the more I like the idea of deep frying equipment in beeswax and...

    Re: How is wax for foundation processed?

    Thanks Kilocharlie!
    I've seen some of the stuff folks (including myself) trade back to Kelley's and have always wondered how they lightened it up for foundation.

    Re: ECO Wood Treatment?

    I have no idea. I was drawn to the idea instead of wax dipping. From the sound of what Trainee has to say I think I'm going to take a pass. I guess there's no free lunch.

    Does anyone know if a 55 gallon oil drum would hold up for this? Will the seams leak? Years ago I boiled a bunch of deeps and shallows in lye with one...opens your sinuses right up! Obviously it was...
