    Nice looking bees Keith, can't say as much about the beekeeper though. Hey what's that machine waaaay off in the distance? Ole Benstung is a good guy I hope he knows you're just fooling with him.

    Nick, the feedesr are in the brood nest in the bottom box now, we flop'em in the fall, the bees take the syrup better than having the feeder at the top below the lid. We will flop them back up top at the end of almonds when it's warmer. I know, some will say it's slow, but we feel are way produces the bees populations that were looking for.
    I know Jimmy, I wouldn't win any awards for looks... I'm figgin toast right now.

    Yeah know Jimmy, some guys down south by the name of Tony's Noyes ( maybe even related to Nick) wanted some sub so another freind (I've got two) wanted sub also so I said meet me in the bee yard I'll bring the sub & lift. What I would give to be stuck in a snow bank somewhere.
