Happy New Year from the Brooks Farm to Everyone. The bees gave me my New Year present early,thought i had a dead out last Wed. and took the lid off to look for live bees. I didn't see any so i lift the super up and seen them on the top bars of the brood box, so i put it back together (the super had full stores :thumbsup: ), when walking back to the truck i thought i had a cockleburr(sp?) in my boot, well when looking i had a boot full of bees and my boot was covered with crawling bees. Don't know how many hits i took before getting my boot off,but i shouldn't have any arthritis in that ankle for a long time. :mrgreen: Jack
As the New Year approaches let us not spend too much time dwelling on the past. Honor it and thank it for what it brought our way, both the good and the bad, that we may be thankful for the good and learn from the bad and how to overcome it.
Look to the coming year w/ hope and optimism.
Be well, do good, prosper. Keep those w/ less than you in your heart.
car broke down two hours short of New Years eve over in the next state (el-lay... Louisiana). not the worst way to end a somewhat dismal year (we were only two blocks from a mechanic my family in Louisiana uses).
of course the Mayan's believe the world will end in 2012, so I am not certain which cup is half full and which one is half empty???
and a very Happy New Year to all the bee keepers on this board.
