    Default I'm a newbie in central east Texas

    Hello, I was told about this place by someone who also frequents a milk-cow forum that I am on. I have not even read anything on here.......so Here goes, Im getting started now.
    I am in central east Texas, and I got a Bee Keeping book for Christmas, then ordered my nuc in mid Feb. then got some used boxes/hives a few days ago, and received my veil, smoker, etc. yesterday. I have attended 2 bee keeping classes in the last2 weeks, and I am signed up for 4 on-line courses, and observed someone taking a large (3-4 year old hive) out of the eve of a house this past Wednesday...............THAT'S IT, I know nothing else.
