One of my first choices, and never a regret. I feel very lucky he came on board.

Thanks, Perry

Perry, I've gotten such good and honest advice from you, and I'll tell you the day I turned the corner on 'getting into my hives'. The first year I was on this forum, starting in January, I was posting so much on what I had found in my one hive. I was getting a lot of comments on how much time I was spending in the hive, and I should be leaving them alone more. But I was on my own, no mentor, and I ignored the comments. Then, another member showed up on the forum and was hesitant to spent too much time in his hive.

You said "Folks! You Have To Get In There!" explaining that we newbees have to learn what things look like in the hive, what looks healthy, what doesn't. What do capped cells look like, what do eggs, larvae, drone brood, queen cells look like. I was so releived to get that info from YOU! Thank You! 

PS. There are some of us who need a little more time to learn things. Patient teachers are diamonds to us.. eh hem   :eusa_clap:
