Title: Beemaster Welcomes you to the forum - spoof but sincere video
Post by: beemaster on January 15, 2011, 02:16:00 am
Southern Style Forum Intro (humor) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdjjWnR54z0#ws)

To all who are new, I put together this rather silly video a while ago, but members like it and new members should get to see Beemaster enjoying himself too :)

Please take this as entertainment with some learning inside. I thought going onto my alter ego (he's been a round a while) while welcoming new members. This will be replaced at some future date, but whether you get I enjoy playing that character, I feel compelled to use it sometimes.

I like to say now, it has no ethnic origin, although I live 2 month as a Summer for many years at a North Carolina Purdue Chicken Ranch.

I think I picked up my exaggerated accent.

So listen careful, I cover feature, rules, friendship and other things, I was told it would be perfect i I edited just a few things around - I'd rather have the unscripted, one take video, like this one.

Enjoy the spoof, but learn the rules please, there aren't too many, being kind to others ere is a great quest that can grow on you over night.

Let me know if you like he video, I just want something where new members could get an idea of how much fun we have here as we all learn to be better beekeepers.

Welcome to the forum.

 :-D  Great video, but there was one problem.   Any god fearing self respecting southern person would have a shotgun sitting in the corner by the door.    :-D   
Love the video.

I agree! You need to redo the video with the shotgun. Larry  :-D

Once my Aussie ears adapted to the accent, I had my head in my hand, shaking with laughter and wiping tears from my eyes. Lots of fun  :) and quite instructional - I even learned about parts of the forum I haven't visited yet.

Much better than reading the rules!

I agree with BeeKDavis, more fun than reading the rules. Oh and how many picked up on the Monty Python reference at the beginning?

Thanks for the welcome...and the video...but that ain't no North Carolina accent! That's straight from South Louisiana.

Getting started back, as a hobby, after 20 something years. Retired, 74 yo, in South Georgia.

It's funny to see a resurgence of this post, it has been a while. I enjoyed doing it and it was one take, so it was pretty good considering I winged it all. The low resolution shows the age and maybe I'll have to make an update, but I kinda said it all in this one - lol.

Thanks for the kind words.

I am a new member. I am in West Texas near Midland. I am also a new beek. I have 1 tbh with bees in it and I am building 5 more 4 foot tbh's for next year.
I had 3 swarm hives this past summer but didn't catch but one swarm.  They were doing good until last week when we had 70 mph west wind which blowed
them over I set them back up and reattached comb with 2in by 1in rabbit wire. I don't think there are enough bees to make through the winter.

Welcome to BeeMaster Johnny.
One of the results of a hive crashing like yours did is that quite often the queen gets squashed.
Did you find the queens in each hive? If not, as soon as the weather permits, I would go back in in a week and see if you can find her or find eggs/larvae. Combine the ones with no queens to queen right ones. If the numbers are really low, reduce the amount of comb to what they can cover. Small hive beetles and wax moths will take over the hives if there is more comb than they can cover.
Good luck.
Jim

Hello fellow bee's.
My name is Greg.
And I hale from the great state of Arkansas!!! Yes sir!
I hope this is the right place to introduce myself.
I am a new beek and have a great love for this fine insect we call the honey bee.
I have not acquired any bees as yet.
Still learning and reading and dreaming of the day.
I wish to wait until I feel I have the knowledge and experience to give my bee's the greatest chance of success.
But I am truly fascinated by bee's.
Also I am a hobby goat farmer to (nubians)
I am having a slight amount of trouble maneuvering the sight, but feel I'll get the hang of it.
I am glad to be here and talk with fellow bee's.
Greg

If you are like me, the minute you open a hive you will not remember anything that you read.  I found one of the things that did help quite a bit was me watching a guy go through hie hive.  It was just a comfort thing cause I still didn't know anything when I got in by myself but it did help with just the intimidation factor that is invoved with bees and also the newness making you scared you will be too rough.  You don't want to be rough but bees are not fragile either.

Welcome

Thanks for the welcome. Wondering if there's an English version or sub titles for the video?
We live SW of Brisbane, Qld and had my first hive for 4 days now so I recon I'm about ready to start giving advice. :-)
Hope to learn heaps on the forum for what appears to be a fulfilling pastime.
See you around, Kelvin

That nick catching my eye I come in late, Kelvin... with a "Thanks" -   I think -   for the heads
up on ol' mate's video. Who said Bob Katter never travelled offshore in his heyday. heh heh :-D
Question, if you please?
Is your newstart colony actually in Logan, or away in the SouEast on the old dairy country?
And whichstyle/format did you opt for?... okee, that's two (2) questions..cheers

Thank you for the add. I am also a New Jersey lady. I have the opportunity to buy nine supers and wanted to find out what else I would need and also if they are used is it OK to buy them. Thank you so much and your video was very informative

Welcome to Beemaster Kelly.
How old are the supers? Are frames included? If they are just boxes and rather new, yes.
Ask what the seller treats his bees with. If he is using antibiotics, run. They are used to keep American Foul Brood under control. If you do not do the same, and you do not want to be putting antibiotics in your honey, in 3 years they will bee infected and the correct thing to do is burn all of the equipment.
