:yahoo: Hi again. i love how things happen; our neighor came over today and during conversation mentioned the guy down the road who has bees. I said who, where? 1 1/2 miles down the road. he was at work but his wife was home and her mentor lives about 30 mts. further. she's going to call him and he will sell me some nucs with bees! she was willing to answer lots of questions and give lots of info. i could hardly contain my excitement!
