    Default Hi from Upstate NY

    I am starting into my second year (second try) so I would say I am definitely a newbie. I like to voice my opinions and hope you will all accept them as opinions and please correct me when I am wrong. That's how I learn. Some say the hard way.

    I have read and understand the rules. I am not looking to fight with anyone but I ask allot of questions so I can determine if your ideas could change my way of thinking. I hope no one takes offence for anything I say, especially if I don't say it right. My expertise is technical in nature whereas my weakness is in communication.

    Bees write their own textbooks and tend to change the rules over time.

    Anything north of the big apple is considered Upstate but weather wise there are huge differences.

    Welcome, actually bees do not change, they get us to change. We are just a little slow! Read Lorenzo L. Langstroth's original "Hive and the Honey Bee" from about 150 years ago. It looks a lot like what beekeepers are experiencing or learning in these threads today.

    I do. There are as many variations in ideas in the club as there are on the forums. This forum has in my opinion a good number of upstaters, which I like, along with many across the globe which also helps.
