I'm a 58 year old father of four, working in finance in the San Francisco Bay area. Our last kid out of four has left for college and I'm wondering what I'd like to do in my next chapter in life.
I've always been fascinated by insects and in particular, bees and beekeeping, having taken entomology way back in college (yes, in the seventies).
The recent issues with CCD has drawn my interest further and so I found this wonderful website and forum.
I'm here to learn the basics and maybe find some local classes on picking this up as a hobby to start.
My user name comes from the fact that I recently asked my wife what did she think about me starting to keep bees.
Her reply to me: "you can have five"
