    Re: Treated first time today

    Re: Treated first time today

    "... and don't browbeat someone because they want to try."

    Along those lines, please don't tell us what we're doing (or trying to do) is the equivalent of having a sick puppy and refusing to take...

    Re: First sugar roll...

    Dkofoed, my husband and i are in the exact same situation. We were thinking that if our hives survived the winter, we'd re-queen in the Spring with a treatment-free, "local" queen. But on my...

    Barry Digman, thank you very much, and what a wonderful link! I've never seen that particular version before, and you kind of can't help but to get a little choked up at the end of it. So poignant...

    Good morning, Phoebee, and you're very kind. Thank you!

    It feels like the ukulele is really gaining in popularity now. A lot of "serious" musicians have taken it up. Back in the day, George...

    Oh, WWW, my heart just thumped reading your comment! Thank you! I'm a beginner, really, and the making of this video was 180 degrees away from my comfort zone. It's highly unlikely that i'll win,...
  11. What do bees and ukuleles have in common? Me!

    Good morning, beekeepers!

    This may seem like an odd post for a beekeeping forum, but i'm currently participating in an on-line video contest, and in the event of a tie in the judging, the number...

    Re: Why Monitor???

    Dsegrest, i'm intrigued! Apple cider vinegar helps with mites, you think?

    I've put a few drops in the beebath from time to time, when inclination strikes, but if it's more beneficial that i...

    Tango Yankee, it sounds absolutely idyllic. My husband and i have two Bee Thinking hives as well, and one of the two colonies just loves to make tunnels. The other isn't so much inclined! Go...
