    Well, apparently my efforts at becoming a diva have been for naught.

    30 hives in two active years--either you're investing a lot of money or your doing something really well. I'll bet on the latter guess. We're gonna learn a lot from you.
    Welcome aboard. :hi:

    Welcome to the forum, friendly and no attitudes here (just a few "tundra" pokes by some of the folks down south that brag over who is lazier) :lol:
    Getting more and more of us tundra folks joining, you will like it here and feel free to contribute when possible. With 30 hives, you gotta have some smarts you can contribute! :thumbsup:

    Welcome, and yeah, our one attempt at having a diva seems to failing, we may take up a collection to send her to finishing school :lol:.

    efmesch, you were right on both options. As building renovator I'm doing something well, and as beekeeper I' m investing lots of money :lol:

    Thank you all for warm welcome, glad to be here. :wave:

    Sorry Hobie, keep trying :oops:

    a funny turn of words... but quite obviously well understood.

    Welcome Marbees:

    As you can see, we try to have fun. I'm a first year beek going into my first winter, and have learned a lot. Don't forget to check out the chat room (mini-chat at the top of the page), we have a lot of fun there, too.

    Again, Welcome.

    tecumseh:
    there is a working principle in calculus that requires 'necessary' and 'essential' element to be fulfilled in order to know some outcome is the one you are seeking. in bee keeping a certain physical capacity is necessary but the mental attitude of the bee keeper is the ultimate essential element for the bees to prosper. a constantly questioning and skeptical mental attitude is I believe 'the' essential element for any successful bee keeper. when you get to the point that you believe 'you know it all' in regards to beekeeping prepare yourself to be set in your proper place by either mother nature or the bees or both.

    I suspect your bees are in quite good hands...
