Monkey frogging is good ;)
I do what pleases me concerning my bees. They are my hobby, I can afford to keep them without financial gain. I enjoy reading how people do different things. Some ideas work out, some don't. Some equipment or processes work for some but not others. The times that people think outside the box are the times that new things can be (re)discovered and we can all benefit from the risks others have taken. Maybe someday I'll give one of Lauri's queens a try.
I'm working on a Master's degree in Monkey Frogging (a term I learned from Acebird today). I've flown in between machine gun bullets overseas, driven cars too fast, climbed mountains, cross country skied and many more exciting things......But, since my first hive in 1977, Nothing gives me more of a thrill than working a strong, defensive hive, with all the uproar that entails. When that is done and things are right in the hive, Nothing gives me more peace. Monkey frogging is good
I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up :)
