    Default Hello Everyone

    I am new to this forum and to beekeeping. I was advised by Sundance to put a little introduction up here. So here goes =]

    I live in North Idaho with my wonderful wife (she is actually getting me the beekeeping stuff for my birthday, which is today!), 7 year old daughter and 5 year old son, two dogs, 6 chickens, 5 rabbits and their litters, and a very nocturnal hamster with a squeeky exercise wheel.

    We moved from the city to a 10 acre plot of land about 5 years ago to get some peace and try to get closer to nature. It worked. Nature has a strange habit of moving in, invited or not.

    I am a computer technician by trade and spend the rest of my time woodworking, carving, pyrography, metal working, leatherworking, gardening, raising chickens and rabbits and now...beekeeping!

    Well, not quite yet. My first order of bees will be here April 15th.

    I am looking forward to meeting many of you and learning from your vast wealth of knowledge.

    Sincerely,
    Marcus

    Welcome Marcus........... From a city lot to 10 acres,
    now that's changing gears. Sounds like a nice setup
    and a great place to bring up you kids.

    This site made it possible for me to get into beekeeping
    by helping to avoid so many stumbling blocks. So many
    great folks here that always take the time to answer
    your questions.

    Welcome Marcus, Working your hives will give you a chance to zone out and forget about everything else that's going on.

    That makes sense. I can only imagine that being swarmed by 10,000 bees would keep your full attention

    Welcome marcus. Try to keep the bees out of your nose
    How's that for beginner's advice?
    So many weeds.......so little time.

    Good to have you here. You're right...nature does have a way of changing you. Or maybe, it changes you back to the way you started out!

    Default she is actually getting me the beekeeping stuff for my birthday, which is today

    Welcome to the forum...we already share something, same birthday...didn't know anyone else was nuts enough to be born on that day..hehe.

    Need to get your wife to help with the hives, she'll enjoy it. So maybe a beesuit for her birthday would be a good investment..
