    If anybody wants a cheap collection of reading material, check out this link. I bought one of the CDs and it arrived today. It is a collection of old beekeeping books and magazines which are old enough to have expired copyrights. It isn't anything fancy. They are .pdf files that contain the scanned books, and the CDs are home burned--not professional. The .pdf files are searchable, which is good.

    The books can probably be found online for free somewhere since the copyrights are dead; but, for what the CD costs, it saves the time. $4.99 + 3 bucks shipping. I'm not complaining.

    I have attached one of the smaller files ( I think, if I did it right) as an example.

    Well, I don't see the attached .pdf, so I guess I didn't do it right . . .

    Thanks for the link. I found the site more interesting. The topic of it is a great seed starter for a great thread, homesteading and survival-ism. If I installed a hand pump water well and my wife would support my desire to have chickens, I think I could do pretty well off the grid. Shoot, the bees alone can help with food, medicine and candles, etc....of course, a hobby...:grin:
