One part of liberty in America is that you do what you wanna do as a grown person. Just don't get none on anyone else that don't want it or can't legally say for themselves they want it. (kids, usually).

It's basic. You don't want to be a beekeeper, then don't be a beekeeper. No one should be making you be a beekeeper.

If you gonna be a beekeeper, make sure you do what you can to make sure you're bees aren't a problem for the next person.

Be responsible for the things you choose to do and don't force others to have to participate in your stuff. It's called respect. It's called responsibility. It's called Liberty.

P.S. This applies to just about everything else besides beekeeping

So today is Independence Day. very interesting.

Enjoy, have a good time, and in honor of the reason for the season, I leave you with this.

Working on developing a bumblebee trap-out system to do bumblebee live removals. Gotta keep those bumbles alive.

I am going to a meeting in which I am advising a local artist on bee hives for a new art project. That is so frickin cool.

well, just got back from the artist meeting.  She has some interesting ideas. Gave her an overview of bee space, types of frames, top bars, shapes, styles and sizes and how management would impact her designs.

 We'll see what she comes up with.

We take a look at the Sony HandyCam CX240 from a beekeepers point of view and how it benefits a beekeeper and how we use it day to day.

well, it's been what, 9 days since Father's day and the little wildflower seeds we planted that day are showing little leaves sprouting up through the ground.

We're all excited to see a smorgasbord of wildflowers for the bees to come and savor.

Every single person who sees my posts.   I don't care if you hate me or you like me.  Please go buy this book at full price today or Monday.

It's a cool read and it's way underpriced as it is.  you will love it.  if you don't love it,  I will set a bee hive in front of your house doors.

j/k.  but seriously.  buy this book.  

Not only is this guy a good author, he makes ice cream for a living.  now how much more freaking cool can it get?

go.  buy it.  pay the full price.   don't be a cheap ass.

Sorry. Traditionalist (read as staid old fart) here. I don't "do" eBooks. Dead tree books for me. Can I wait for the movie?

P.S. Go ahead and put that hive on my doorstep. I'll move it out to the backyard by the fence and maybe add a couple more. Won't that piss my godmother next door off. She just cut down two beautiful 30" diameter Camphor trees in her front yard because they were "infested with ants."

alrighty then. getting ready to go out and look at some queens with other Omaha Bee Club members. see if these girls are present and accounted for. If not, then there's some changes to be made, aren't there?

Hang tight Randy B and Dave W, we're gonna get this party started real soon here.

well, one hive is queen-less and the other hive has a queen.

The queen-less hive will get a new queen on Sunday.

The hive with a queen has other problems.  The beekeeper bought the hive which came from a fella retiring from keeping bees.  It was a two deep stack that on first quick inspection (which, I am told was just a general peek under the inner cover of the top box) that was very heavy.

I went over about two weeks ago and saw that the hive was mostly honey, old honey, and that there were really only about 4 frames of bees with no brood and no queen.

So, we get him a queen.

Now I had to tell this beekeeper that the hive needed new frames and comb in it.   The stuff in there currently was old, hard and black as night.

Two weeks later, there is still no brood at all and the queen is still in the hive.  This queen was taken from a mating nuc in which she was laying like a champ.

What is my suspicion?  The comb is too old and the queen doesn't want to lay in that mess.

The beekeeper is ordering new frames with foundation on Monday and hopefully by the end of the week will have mostly new stuff in there  then feed the heck out of these bees with some copious amounts of sugar syrup.

So we are to understand now that flags cause hatred and violence the same way that guns shoot people and forks cause obesity.

Someone please stop the world,  I want to get off now.

wow Kevin, you can sure play the lines from the party bosses can't you.

if you can't see your own game playing here in trying to project your own dishonesty, I don't see the need for you to continue posting to my threads.

Your lack of civility is most disappointing.

It's interesting to see how many people think anarchism and libertarianism are the same. So not.

Employment
  • Tech Dissected
    Beekeeping Technology Writer, 10 - present
    I write articles and reviews covering the technology of beekeeping. Covering a wide range from website hosting to websites to track beekeeping inspection information to hive tools to smokers, and much much more. Technology in beekeeping has been forward moving since the Egyptians hauled bees in clay pots on the Nile river to pollinate crops. Beekeeping in the 21st century has experienced a veritable explosion in technology that is accessible to beekeepers and able to be re-purposed to tech that is made available specifically to meet beekeeper needs.

Beeing the best I can bee
Introduction
I am a Topixqui and have taken the vow of Topixqui to be a resource for other Peoples as we meet on this path of life.

I am a blue-sash-at-the-side student of the Yang Taijiquan martial art form as it has been adapted into the topixqui way of life.

I am a Master Beekeeper (Homesteader style), certified by the Omaha Bee Club. It fulfills my obligation to practice an honorable trade of self sufficiency and giving back to the world as much as I take from it.

I believe in self sufficiency and that one of the most sacred things we can do in life is to be and help others to be as self sufficient in our lives as possible.

The variety of products available at Tomato Tomato is more than I thought it would be. and they keep working to bring more items in, especially since the new expansion. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about their products. The latter is especially important as most stores staff have little to no clue about where the products come from, how they are grown or made, etc... I would frequent this store even more if I lived closer to their location.

Howard's is a truly family friendly restaurant. Three generations of my family has been eating there since it first opened on South 24th St. The food is first hand, the staff are friendly and treat you like family. The food itself is incredible.You just haven't had good Mexican food until you've been to Howard's

This is a place that obviously puts people first. From offering free movies through the summer for low income families to hosting special and local elated events. The atmosphere and "personality" of Aksarben Cinema is always outstanding.
