Re: Is Beekeeping broke?
I recall a time when in training we had to sit thru a number of lectures so I took some quilt pieces I was making to help the time pass. Figuring it would be less intrusive than snoring. But the powers that be didn't see it that way, they thought it disrespectful So, I started asking questions. I asked one lecturer why he thought a blacksmith was so necassary on a tobacco plantation and he said to make the barrels for the shipping of tobacco. Hogshead barrels for tobacco are made w/ ash sapling hoops I pointed out. He told me to go back to my quilt piece making, not in so many words.
I also recall the other people in the class didn't like me asking questions because it meant we would have to be there longer.
Didn't mean to imply you were saying you knew. Just stating my opinion and one agreed to by others I know. Many things coexist and have no detrimental effects.
Just because something is new to you, doesn't mean it is new, or revolutionary. Mark Berninghausen
