Beekeepers,
Though I have had a blog for several years, my efforts here are  a small rekindling  of my interest in this format.  I  will be posting more PowerPoint PDF files and  short Video files  on this medium and will be using this site more for general bee-related discussions.  Look in the pull down menu for my preliminary efforts.  

 If I can maintain my focus and direction, I hope to use this medium to communicate with beekeepers in a more efficient manner while I grow more competent in the electronic bee community.

The pictured beekeeper is James E. Tew, 43 years ago,  working his first hive at the Auburn University apiary.  As a brand new beekeeper, I wore canvas gloves, an Alexander Veil,  and taped my pant cuffs.  I was crazy for bees.  I still am.
