hello from Eastern Ontario
« on: August 08, 2016, 11:56:51 am »
hi everyone
Have been lurking here as a guest for opinions etc for a while, so figured I'd better get on the board proper now.
Not on the computer all the time, just for research when I'm not doing my actual job.

I have had bees since 2012.
My first were bees from the same family that built this homestead in the 1890s. They brought them from England.
Hope to learn much from you all here!

Jeff,
Speaking of not having "no room to talk".  :cheesy:
I have spent a lot of time in the Keys. I used to do inspections (2 weeks long) on the Hydrofoils every year for several years, in Key West while in the Navy. It is a whole lot cooler in the Keys with the sea breeze than it is here in N FL, especially inland, away from the coast.

Hot gets hotter, cold gets colder, and heavy gets heavier..,
