dikhou is just an abbreviation of my first and second name - boring !!!.

I am a beginning beekeeper in UK. Keen to learn and also to use hive monitoring like hivetool. I made a top bar hive last winter and started a swarm in there in June. Unfortunately the swarm was tiny (about a couple of pints) and I believe the wasps got it after they had made a couple of small combs!  Maybe they just took off after rattling around in such a large space?

I have since got a couple of standard hives (BS Nationals) and have one very vigorous colony which I am feeding and treating for Varroa in the hope of getting them through the winter. Hop[e they get off to a flying start in March or April. At the moment they are very active bringing in stores which I am supplementing with syrup. The weather here on the east coast of England UK is very mild just now - an Indian summer already!

I'd be glad of advice on how to get registered on hivetool.org or .net to find out more about data logging.

All the best :)

the area i live in has a long history of pirates, with even the local football team calling themselves the pirates.  i perform cutouts and removals, so i thought hivepirate would be a cute name that both reflects what i do and the area i do it in.

In 1973, my parents moved from the Seattle WA area to Montana.  Kindergarten was optional there then.  My parents bought a log cabin church plus the minister's house for $25,000 and we moved and transformed the church into Happy Hollow Kindergarten.  In 2011, I bought a beautiful 3 acre place outside Washington DC. It is as if a helicopter put a house inside a park.  It's name...   Happy Hollow.

When I was in college there were a bunch of Erics. I however was the only Bos. I don't remember what was said or who said it but I jokingly said "that's Bos The Great to you..." Then I said I kinda like the sound of that. So that so that is where btg came from.

Mine comes from a hollyleafed Australian plant that grows in the forests nearby. The Lomatia genus is a member of the Proteaceae family which includes Banksia, Grevillea in Oz and Protea in South Africa. (Many, many members of this family throughout Australia)

The two sides of the Australian Intellect.

One names himself after a plant endemic to his area and the other uses the name of a beer endemic to his area  :cheer:

Well I was born with the name and earned the "Ret,Sgt. part of it by serving in the US Army for 27 years. I have most always used my real name on any forum with very few exceptions for security reasons that I shall not get into.

Thank you , Best Regards
