THE COFFEE HOUSE ((( SOCIAL - ROOM ))) / Re: Why Trump should not be reelected

>The rioters are as guilty as the rioters in the BLM demonstrations.  There are Trump supporters that disagree with that.

Absolutely and I have heard NO ONE disagree with that.  They should all be charged with whatever crimes they committed and prosecuted.  If they broke windows or assaulted a police officer they should be charged with that.  A lot of them, however were just let in by the police.  I don't know if you've seen that video, since the mainstream won't show it, but they were.  Those people, I'm not sure committed any crime.

However the narrative that the President incited this is inconsistent with the timeline.  Several DAYS before the FBI was saying there was a plot to do this and there were several arrests before Jan 6.  Then the break-in occurred before Trump finished giving his speech.  Then the people at the rally walked peaceably down to the Capitol.  I left a few minutes early to try to miss some of the crowd and there were flashbangs going off.  I thought it sounded like a cannon and couldn't figure out what they were at first.  None of those people leaving the rally were rioting.  The rioters were already there.

>Trump was impeached a second time because he encouraged the rioters.

Except he didn't.  Both Don Jr and Trump asked for peaceful protest.  Specifically.  Don Jr. made it clear that being violent and destructive was not who we are.  Trump asked for everyone to peacefully and patriotically walk down to the Capitol.  And the riot had already taken place and the Trump people were still at the rally listening to the President.

Member with the top box full of stores I would not think a healthy hive would have starved. No Q/E right? Close up pictures of the combs tomorrow for more clues would be good. By the way you post really good and clear pictures. Good job.

GENERAL BEEKEEPING - MAIN POSTING FORUM. / Almost Dead Hive
« Last post by The15thMember on January 14, 2021, 08:44:22 pm »
It was approaching 60F today and yesterday, and I noticed that all of my hives were flying except one, so I decided to pop the top and take a look.  This hive was in 2 mediums, and the top box was completely empty of bees and full of stores, and in the bottom box was only about a handful of live bees with the queen and the most of the rest of cluster dead on the bottom board.  There were about fist-sized sections of bees dead with their heads in cells like they were starving, but the cluster wasn't separated from stores.  I put the remaining live bees in another box on a clean bottom board and gave them their stores before cleaning out the box of dead bees.  I couldn't get any pictures of the combs or live bees because it was chilly and I was trying to work quickly, but here are some pictures of the dead bees.  I can get some pictures of the other combs tomorrow if you think they'll help.  Any ideas what happened here?

Starting to pickup here in Hawaii too.  No flow yet, but pollen coming in in some hives.  I've already been called out to remove two swarms since the New Year.

Two swarms already?!?!  Good for you, I wanna work with my bees too, but I have to just sit and wait for warm winds:  March or April for me.  Until warmer weather? I?ll just keep reading about you beeks in warmer climates with my envy.  Every year, about this time, reading post on BeeMaster, I experience Apis Empathic Syndrome or AES, I call it.  Don?t worry, I?ll be fine in Spring.  Keep posting: swarms, pollen, flowers, I adore the post.  Yes, BEEBOY, post pics please.

Blessings

We used to get two or three weeks of frosty and freezing weather which was great setting the blooms on a pear tree I have. The harvest has gone from three or four bucket of pears to just three or four pears each year. Seems like for this year I'm looking at a short cold period with a longer and cooler spring.

The only sure way I have found to keep wax moths out of stored supers is to use paramoth crystals every month or so and air them out before putting them on my hives. The boxes I had to clean up were from lost hives that got taken over by wax moths trashing the comb which isn't a fun job.

I'll try to get some pictures of the pollen coming in posted just to help all you northern beeks get through the winter.

If they were trying to take over no one there could have stopped it.
They didn't.  The capital was taken over.  What they did not achieve is taking prisoners because there is a safety protocol in place to protect the congress in lieu of an attack.  Assumed to be from a foreign country.
The rioters are as guilty as the rioters in the BLM demonstrations.  There are Trump supporters that disagree with that.  Trump was impeached a second time because he encouraged the rioters.  It fits the definition of treason, could be punishable by death.
Had the senate done their job on the first impeachment this would have never happened.  The election would have been Biden against Pence and might have been a different outcome.  If you want to look for what went wrong look to the senate and their ring leader Mitch for reneging on their oath of office.
Many of the republican senators know what they have done was wrong and have admitted behind closed doors but they fear the mob.  They don't fear Trump anymore but they still fear the mob.
The Trump empire is crashing and Ivanka's hopes and dreams of being the first woman president are vaporizing.  She and her husband have already been snubbed by high society.
Those senators who knew what they were doing was wrong but did it anyway for fear of primary challenges are going to have a hard time justifying their record in next elections.

HUMOR IS A FUNNY THING / Re: DON'T OPEN THIS! iT'S SPAM!
« Last post by rast on January 13, 2021, 09:18:08 pm »
 I still fry myself some spam every now and then, white bread and mayonnaise. My granddaddy had what he called his "cleaning cage" he put the possums in and fed them table scraps. Granny usually baked them and too greasy for me. The tins of sardines in oil were a staple as long as my Daddy was alive.
