I'm sure you'll find this forum to be a good source of information about bees & beekeeping. Be sure to check out the "How to Start Beekeeping" subforum - it contains a lot of good suggestions on beekeeping basics.
I also recommend getting involved with a local beekeeping club. Clubs often offer help to beginning beekeepers, and are great places to find mentors and get connected with nearby beekeepers. http://www.tnbeekeepers.org/locals.htm
