I suit up based on what I plan to do. Removals I will start with a jacket and veil, if they are fairly calm I will often just use a veil. If I'm getting down into brood nests and making manipulations I will also wear my jacket and probably a pair of jeans. If it's just weekly inspections during the spring and summer flows, I'm usually in shorts and a veil, and sometimes a t-shirt. You will likely never see me without a veil, I use my eyes for too many other important things.

All have advantages and disadvantages.  Location is key for most sources of energy with the exception of geo thermal.

HUMOR IS A FUNNY THING / Bubble Wrap
« Last post by Michael Bush on Today at 09:10:13 am »
Had a job as a delivery driver once. Had to drop off a huge load of bubble wrap to an office. They told me to pop it in the corner. Took me hours.

Some people thought my idea of replacing Christmas wrapping paper with Bubble Wrap was silly, but at least I made my presents known.

Left work with a really impressive package.  Three staplers, a box of pens and a roll of Bubble Wrap.

Imagine the self control required to work in the Bubble Wrap factory.

I ordered some bubble wrap online just to see what it would be wrapped in.

What sort of music does bubble wrap not like? Pop!

I don't know how to embed these but here are the links:





Tommy Emmanuel is an Aussie for those of you from there.  He is a national treasure.

If you like this you should search on Youtube for each of them separately.  There are a lot of videos out there.

Hard to beat Hyrdroelectric.  Humans have been using Hyrdo for as long as we can tell.  Water wheels have been around for centuries at least if not millennia.

You can find some awesome videos of Chet Atkins (Mr. Guitar)  playing with various other amazing guitar players like Jerry Reed, Roy Clark etc.  Tommy Emmanuel plays like Chet and is quite amazing.  Gabriella Quevedo is a young lady who also does fingerstyle guitar and is quite amazing.

DARK SIDE OF THE MOON / Re: Watching For Comets

I haven't.  There is a telescope out in my barn with a 12" lens.  I suppose I should drag it out.  But the temps here are in the single digits right now...

I have several times received dozens of stings in a second.  Things can go bad quickly and unpredictably.  One time I stepped in a hole in the beeyard (gopher?) and I dropped a brood box.  It disintegrated.  10,000 or more bees in the air in less than a second.  Luckily I had some protection on.  One time I was brushing bees into a box that had clustered on the stump of the tree they lived in which had snapped off in a storm.  I had a jacket on, but it was plastered to my back with sweat and I got 20 or more stings on my back in about a half a second.  Luckily I had a veil.  I once brushed a swarm off at the top of a 20 ft ladder and it went down the back of my shirt.  Funny how a swarm swings before it lets go...  Again 20 or more stings in just a second.  You're not just wearing protective equipment for the predictable things...

GENERAL BEEKEEPING - MAIN POSTING FORUM. / Re: Washing a bee suit

"My bees are (for the most part) very docile"

Mine are too Regan for the most part. To be fair, there are some days that the shorts will not do and some of the bees will be in a pesky mood as Beemaster2 described above. On a day like that I will change from shorts to loose fitting dry fit material pants. Even these are much better than jeans or some of the other type pants for cooler comfort. Their again the fan is a huge asset. But shorts are my presence when working 'my hives' when the weather gets HOT...
