  1. Re: My removal videos in all their true hi-def glory

    Ha !! I was just thinking that today.

    You're right.

    I'll just have to sign a deal with Netflix and they can rent out DVDs of my removals.

    Ok, I just realized that this thread has probably...
  2. Re: My removal videos in all their true hi-def glory

    .

    I think I may have an idea how we all can share hi-def videos with each other.

    Whoever is interested would have to sign up for DropBox. www.dropbox.com

    Then, we could all have a joint...
  3. Re: My removal videos in all their true hi-def glory

    Thanks for the attempt, Cleo.

    I highly doubt the streaming was in hi-def. If there was ANY amount of blurryness, it was the compromised streaming version.

  4. Re: My removal videos in all their true hi-def glory

    .

    So the hi-def video is finally finished uploading to my DropBox folder.

    Will someone be so kind as to see if it's possible to download and/or view the file in a decent amount of time?

    My...
  5. Re: My removal videos in all their true hi-def glory

    LOL, thanks.

    Yes, but I tell you what - - other than the heat, that was one of my favorite removals I've done so far. And those bees are doing fantastically right now in my back yard. They...
  6. Re: My removal videos in all their true hi-def glory

    Yeah, it's just an experiment. I think the internet still has a long way to go before we can experience such things fast.

    It's actually STILL uploading to DropBox from my computer. BUt it only...
  7. Re: My removal videos in all their true hi-def glory

    LOL, but you can do other stuff while it's loading !!!!!!

    It's SO worth it !!!

  8. My removal videos in all their true hi-def glory

    .

    So as you all know, when you edit a hi-def video and upload it to youtube, the quality
    and size get degraded severely.

    I got to thinking that I would upload several of my original hi-def...
  9. Re: Does anyone have any of these laying around? Would make great top bar hives

    The glass can have covers made so it would be just like any other top bar hive with viewing windows.

    As far as a metal hive working, haven't you ever seen the part of "The Wizard of Oz" where the...

    Re: Labor Day Weekend Cut-Out - Part 1

    Unbelievable.

    Did they want it done for free?

    I still haven't been able to procure an iron lung.

    There must not have been that many made.
  12. Re: "Just come get them - - they are already in a "hive" " (video)

    By the way, here's what I stab the comb on to when I do cut outs.

  13. Re: "Just come get them - - they are already in a "hive" " (video)

    Ha !!!

    So I looked at the original, high quality version of my film, and I have decided that it's not the queen - although I had to look at it several times.

    Also, from when I found it during...

    Here's part 2 of this removal It was pretty much a second colony that I wasn't able to get on the first visit:

  15. Re: "Just come get them - - they are already in a "hive" " (video)

    I've thought about Langs, yes. However, I'm just addicted to the top bar hives, even with their quirks. It's kind of like sticking with an old guitar because of the soul and sound it has rather...
  16. Re: "Just come get them - - they are already in a "hive" " (video)

    BeeMoose,

    I really appreciate the compliment. I try to keep the action moving as much as I can. I don't think anyone should have to suffer through 6 minutes of a vacuum cleaner running.

    .
  17. Re: "Just come get them - - they are already in a "hive" " (video)

    That sure does look like an interesting resolution.

    However, I could imagine the looks on people's faces in nearby cars if I had a hive on that thing that's leaking bees at intersections. But,...
  18. Re: "Just come get them - - they are already in a "hive" " (video)

    This cheap deal I slapped together for about 30 bucks.

    I tried to upload the pdf file that has instructions on how to build, but the upload failed.

    If anyone wants that file, message me with...

    The customers are NEVER accurate in describing the circumstances.

    N-E-V-E-R.

    But this removal was sorta fun anyhow - except for the heat.

    So here's a conversation with someone today via email who needed a bee removal.

  21. Re: Gotta vent about customers' expectations of charges

    FWIW, I didn't charge the 97 year-old lady. The reason? I was talking to the head maintenance guy of the mobile home park when I picked up the bees at dusk from her home. I told him about the...
  22. Re: Gotta vent about customers' expectations of charges

    .

    You know, I'm not even so much worried about the money in this particular situation. I'm just concerned about the expectancy of most potential customers that we somehow work for free.

  23. Re: Gotta vent about customers' expectations of charges

    Thanks for the kind words. I'm glad you feel my (our) pain.

  24. Re: Gotta vent about customers' expectations of charges

    Well, she's 97 (yeah, so sue me....hey, I gave her a discount - two-for-one). I figure she's good on her word. But she (as most other people) have no clue what's involved with what we all do here....
  25. Gotta vent about customers' expectations of charges

    So APPARENTLY, multitudes of people have gotten some sort of memo that these bees are "worth something", and that honey is "worth something".

    They somehow think they are doing you a favor by...
