    Hi All!
    Wanted to introduce myself as I'm new to the Forum. My name is Gabrielle. I live in Coles County in Mattoon, IL. I'm interested in keeping bees but before I get a couple of hives, I want to learn all I can. My dad had bees when I was a kid. It was great fun watching him. And I just love the little buzzers. I have found beekeeper associations in my state so I plan to attend a couple of beekeeper meetings that I have found locally and get to talk with other beekeepers. I would try to go to some classes but they cost a little more than I can afford and I would rather save up for the equipment, hives, gear.......well I know I'm preaching to the choir in that respect Anyway, I'm happy to have found this forum. Everyone is so helpful with the advice they give that I'm sure I'll learn alot here.

    Thanks and see ya around!
    Gabrielle

    Welcome!! And I second the referral to Michael's page. He's
    easily one of the most knowledgeable beekeepers I've run across.
