    Default Is there no end to OdFranks bragging?

    Every week I have to hear about the number of swarms he's trapped, (70 so far this year) but now he's bragging about his new Maxant bottling valve he's got knowing that I've wanted one for a while now. Look at the giddy expression on his face. He's obsessed with bragging!

    when you get the best, you have a right to brag, you also have a moral obligation to share, so I would hit him up for the use when you need it

    Charlie....I am not obsessed with bragging....I am obsessed with out doing you at all endeavors. And get your figures correct. I have caught 70 bait hives PLUS 35 swarms, and installed 12 packages. I have made 7 divides with purchased queens, 7 divides with queen cells grafted, 6 divides with hives about to swarm, plus 4 acquisitions of hives given to me by crashing newbees.
    This puts me in prime territory to out do you with hive losses this winter. Bring on the mites and viruses. See if you can beat my 60% losses last winter. To give you a chance to out do me in winter losses I am foregoing OAD which seemed not to work, and being a big spender this year with Apivar.

    Just the facts mam, just the facts.
    It is not true that you cannot teach an old dog new tricks.
    They can learn them, they just can't do them.

    I just watched Michael Palmer's extracting video and think I saw galvanized fittings. We oldtimers know that the etching into the galvanization by 45 years of acidic honey pumping imparts particularly special flavors into the honey. The nylon drainage filter fabric at the end of the pipes still working great. Just couldn't resist the $150 price on a Dadant 15g. bottling tank so I splurged on the $179 Maxant valve. Even with 60% losses I should be able to produce my usual crop.
    Being semi retired helps having enough time to make 200% increase after 60% losses. After 45 years finally raising queens. This bee business is nothing but easy money.

    He's got the valve; that's boasting, not bragging.
