Hey all. My name is Cliff, my funny screen name is my radio call sign (b1) and the initials of the fire department (kfd) where I've worked for the past 17 years. I'm 51 years old, I've been married to the same wife for 28 of those years and we have 4 kids (a married daughter, a 20 year old son, and twin 15 year old girls). I have been interested in bees for years, but have never considered trying to keep them until now. One of my twins is also interested. I look forward to learning a lot from this forum. Thanks for having me.
