Pops - please don't take offense from the above. Miscommunication is rampant here! Your comments are as valuable as anyone elses.

Miscommunication is exactly right!!! Daniel Y he wasn't even saying anything about anything about you. He didn't even quote you. He was making an observation about the difference between knowledge and experience. He wasn't saying anything about who has what experience, knowledge or what.
This thread has been and is very helpful in many ways looking to rear queens!!! This is a busy time of year and no doubt some of us may not be in the best spirits as we ought to be.
I removed this post myself. I think I am confused about what thread I am reading. So as a serious response to what I earlier took as an insulting comment by volunteerK9.
I eventually made around 250 grafting attempts. This morning I was reading that post in response to one I had made about mating nucs. I am now thinking that is an entirely different thread. I am not entirely sure because posts seem to appear and disappear on this site.
Anyway my apology K9 and even to Pops if you thought I was replying to you.

Well there is a silver lining in everything. . . This caused me to go back and reread the first page of this thread which was where the quotes were from. This is a great thread.
Built my box for the starter/finisher today even though I wont populate it or try grafting for another 6 weeks. I'm thinking about building a lighted frame holder with LED light on it (battery powered). My 60 year old eyes need all the help they can get All my bees are in the wintering shed and there is still snow on the ground but spring will be here soon....Wintering ability will be my first character I graft for......
For you and I that's a given. Everything else is gravy.
