    my screen name is tecumseh and I carry a very thin but menancing coup stick.

    I currently reside in central texas. I have been keeping bees in one manner or another for just about 50 years in about a half dozen states and have worked bees as both a hobbist and commercially (for two different employers in 3 different states). if you are old enough to remember the farm version of the sears and roebuck catalogue and reside almost anywhere in the central us of a and obtained a package from this source.....then quite likely I played a hand (small) in generating that package you picked up at the local sears store.

    I currently maintain an intrastate bee 'shipping' licence and a queen rearing permit in texas and maintain about 200 hives (truthfully I haven't counted these in quite some time). in the spring of the year I rear a small number of minnesota hygenic (cells purchased from another bee keeper) and cordovans queens and nucs (reared by myself). I am vice president of the central texas bee club (brenham, tx) and do a 'hands on' bee school thru the club in the spring (hopefully we shall add a fall school shortly).

    I have known iddee via another on line bee forum. I quite like iddee for no apparent reason(s) since we agree on absolutely nothing politically. the 'no apparent reasons' quite likely are.... we are somewhat of the same generation (very definitely OLD SCHOOL) and I was reared by folks who taught me to listen to other folks concerns and savor any and all difference (a likely by product of having parents who moved about quite a bit and being forced as a very young person to 'fit in' in a variety of places).

    I quite typically close out my rambling rhetoric with a 'by line' which is the english translation of the shawee name Tecumseh which is somewhat literal and somewhat symbolic in nature (it actually refers to an image of a low arching slow burning meteor or the eye of a pather reflected in the light of a camp fire).. the one solitary attribute (or flaw depending on your point of view) that the historical Tecumseh and I have in common is our unquestionable tenacity.

    pather passing in the night...

    ps... and thank ya' Charles on the suggestion in regards to the silverscreen2. that seems to have done the trick.

    Welcome aboard, Tec. Between your knowledge and my BS, we should be able to make this forum go. :roll: :lol:

    As for politics, maybe I'll be able to teach you the right way someday.................. :p

    Tecumseh,
    Is there no site far enough to be out of your grasp.... :eek:

    Iddee, you got it backwards. Change the knowledge and the BS, and it may work better... At least it seems better in my political world..... :lol:

    Welcome to the site ;)

    well I see Bjorn is still holdin' a grudge? oh well... ya' cannot please all the people all the time. or so some YANKEE president said... I think?

    I really have no desire or intention of expressing anything on this forum that may even smells like political thought. on the other hand, I have absolutely no constraints in correcting some folks twisted notion of FACT nor calling anyone out that might set aboout smearing someone's name who I know very well. if some wish to call this 'going political' well that's fine by me.

    to the rest of ya'.... thanks for the welcome.

    I do suspect iddee notion of 'my knowlege' is a bit over expressed. although I enjoy researching this or that problem I am highly aware of exactly what I do know and (I think more importantly) what I don't know. some of this notion is based on work experience and some on academic exposure. to put this to a singular sound bit.... all meaures of IQ are finite and measureable, on the other hand studpidity has no bounds.

    I would like to thank Iddee for one of the very best deployed ideas implemented by myself this year... robber screens. although I read a bit more on these simple devices later in an old bee magazines the original idea was referenced to me by iddee (at this time I ain't certain if this was something said or a picture). thanks iddee... ain't it funny how a person can have an effect of which they have no notion?

    If the only friends I had were people that thought like me, it would be a very lonesome world. The only variety in life comes from people who feel differently then others.

    Tecumseh. truly loyal to his party, and Bjornbee, truly loyal to his, brought together by the tiny little honeybee. Now, that's life.

    Welcome. all....And a happy harvest to each and every one.

    yep iddee... if you could say nothing else it is amazing that at the very least we have the bees to bring us together. a small but not insignificant thing... I would suggest.
