recognized for something and you figured Oh bees the newest green
thing . Your bandwagon leaves a sour note in my mouth. Whatever your
take is on CCD you are welcome to it. I myself am going back to the
true old fashiond way of beekeeping. Let the bees decide and honey
is second. I have that luxury and intend to keep it and will keep
very very close records on my bees No pesticides no insecticides no
trucking to other states no So-called medicines and so forth. I am
going Lusby. I am from NC and find as another gentleman did yes
there are many math challenged individuals here it does not help
the cause of reviving the honeybee.I have my own theory and only
mention it to close friends. I find it more comfortable and don't
need someone rude to call me stupid. The Lusbys are already ahead of
the bee game, thank god they do not follow someone like you. Take
care Dennis for a foulmouth like you may have to swallow their own
you know what.
