    Default Hello from England and France

    Hello I'm happy to be here.
    I will be living most of the time in Deux-Sevres, France, fom March and wish to tip-toe around the possibility of keeping a hive or two, without causing annoyance to neighbours. It's nice to be here to learn whatever I can.

    Welcome!


    My father-in-law keeps bees in Brittany.

    Try getting some of John Kefuss's queens if you can.

    Hello American Beekeeper,
    Thank you for your welcome. I watched a TV programme
    some time ago where American beekeepers travelled all
    over the country to provide their service to farmers. They
    were suffering from the bee virus, though, and it was
    affecting their business.
    Best wishes, Derick.

    Hello BJoynes,
    Thank you for your post. Yes I am at Newcastle-under-Lyme
    here in England and am enjoying myself. I went to my two
    hour French lesson at Newcastle College yesterday evening
    which I much enjoyed. My wife goes to Stafford quite often
    to meet friends and the first thing they do is go to the
    "Soup Kitchen" for coffee and chat.
    Best wishes, Derick

    Hello Dr. John, Beecurious,
    Thank you. Yes I would welcome your two e-mail addresses.
    I don't know what the strength of the beekeeping population
    is like in France or where the suppliers are. My nearest largish
    town is just over the border at Fontenay-le-Compte in the
    Vendée.
    Best wishes, Derick.
