OK, sweet. 2 years ago you got as low as 5 hives, currently you have about 40. Presumably the survivors from the packages you mentioned buying. Wasn't that hard to say was it?

Much as you think I should, I don't read every word you write, or everything in the hundreds of links you find in google. I was not aware of all this, and your previous posts seemed evasive.

There's more I'd like to know about how successful of a beekeeper you are, but i've wandered far enough from the thread topic, Barry's stepped in, so I won't.

I'll just have to read about it when I get your book.
