    Greetings. Let us hear from you about the challenges of beekeeping where there is a real winter. We'll all be the better for the interaction of someone who counterbalances all the southerners here. They've been turning me green with envy :mrgreen: hearing about all the swarms they've been catching for the last month or so. Amazing.

    tecumseh..
    i would say live below the mason dixon line and be capable of playing with 'the girls' all year long. a plus would be to have a old smelly pick up truck.

    In Yiddish, "Bubba" means grandma. :eek: I'm sure that Tec isn't that kind of a Bubba. :lol:
    In Yiddish, "Zeida" means grandpa. :eek: That's the division I fall into--and probably with a lot more fellows in this forum.
    For that matter, I wouldn't be surprised if there is a (female) goodly sized Bubba division here too. :drinks:
