Thanks Phillip. It?s always amazing to be out in the bush. It?s a good hobby that makes the cooler winter months a time to look forward to.

Oddly enough, my sister and I were talking about this earlier today, and I'd never thought about it before, how you can't just recharge an electric car in a few minutes like you can fuel a gas car.  We were joking that it could lead to a huge increase in roadside attractions as people sit and wait for their cars to charge.   :cheesy:

We were actually talking about it in conjunction with NASCAR, because there have been some rumors kicking around about NASCAR's undercard series, the Xfinity series, potentially going electric or hybrid in the next 5 to 10 years.  Open wheel racing has a few electric series, and I just saw today that IMSA is going hybrid.  The biggest issue for NASCAR especially, as opposed to other series, is the length of NASCAR's races, which couldn't be run on a full charge.  Formula E's races are only 45 minutes.  An Xfinity race is usually about 2-2.5 hours.

I got stung by a bumble bee for the first time the other day.  She landing on my upper arm and sat there as I was walking to the garage, and then she just jabbed me through my shirt!  :shocked:  I looked down at her and said, "Ow!  What'd you do that for?"  She looked back at me a moment, and then buzzed contentedly away.  :cheesy:  The only thing I can think that happened is that I had my hair down, and perhaps as I was walking she got somewhat tangled in my hair.  The honey bees HATE when that happens, so I could understand if she took offense to that.  :happy:  I had gotten stung by one of my honeys earlier in the day, so I had some Benadryl in me, but the sting site didn't swell or anything even after the Benadryl wore off.  It turned white in the center, which doesn't normally happen to me with honey bee stings, so that's kind of interesting.

THE COFFEE HOUSE ((( SOCIAL - ROOM ))) / Thought this might go in humor
« Last post by Kathyp on Today at 04:55:19 pm »
but I decided to put it here  :cheesy:

We just took a trip of over 600 miles.  It took about 11 hours.  We were laughing about the amount of time it would have taken if we'd been driving an electric car!  Even a train, at 17+ hours, would have been faster than the electric car and charging times. 

CA has mandated electric cars by 2035.  My state usually follows CA mandates as if we were a lost puppy looking for love. 

Granted, they may make improvements that let us travel farther and charge faster, by 2035...and maybe I'll remember to check back on this post then and comment!   :grin:

Oh, and those electric car subsidies?  Those are for people wealthy enough to buy the things because even with the subsidies, they will cost more than most can/will pay right now.

Everyone has an agenda.  I asked you to put yours aside and answer a question after you watched the video.  I understand if you don't have time to watch it.

Oh contraire, he was virtually.  It is a real thing.  We even teach a sector of the population in this fashion.

Ah yes, that must be it.

Food production has always been supported by government in this country.  Even with all the support small farms are a thing of the past.  The 1% has controlled the food supply for almost my entire life.  This is a result of capitalism supported by socialism like it or not.

DOWN UNDER BEEKEEPING / First swarm cells 2022
« Last post by Bee North on Today at 05:15:34 am »
I was making nucs today and one of my hives was preparing to swarm. It had 7 or 8 capped cells and packed with bees.

All my hives have a lot of drones. They are all strong, hence the splits.

And so it begins!
