    Re: Global Warming

    As far as I know the cheapeake bay used to be a glacier, well I looked outside this morning and Grins is right as the glacier is gone. Now how did that happen if there was no global warming.

    Re: OAV injection location

    drobbins, most of the leaks are around the bottom of the hive and I think the vapor seems to displace the air in the hive so it moves more easily in the direction of the leaking air. Now if you...
