My dad has been raising bees for almost a year now. For Christmas he gave me this awesome shirt with the new logo for his company.

I don't have time to look it up at the moment, but you should check out briandmyers past posts on the subject of bee keeping. Also, Saydrah has an uncle that is in to it and she posted a great video a while back that he made.

Tell your dad that the name and logo are great! Please let me know when and where I can pick up some.

I'm not sure why, but that tag ID is not working for me. You?

Anyways, a quick search shows me this old post Reflections on my first year with the bees (long) -It's a good one. T-Dog -check this out.

Also, here is the Saydrah post with her uncle -It's about how to prepare bees for interstate travel.

Good luck to your pops T-Dog.

Link didn't work, no. mk, bugski? I just re-created the link by clicking on a different #thingy, then backspacing over thingy, typing beekeeping then enter. That works, so I got nothing.

edit, To clarify, for me, that link goes to my tags page, showing latest, recent, etc. Click on any , say #news, then edit the url from news to beekeeping. That works.

Thanks, he'll get a kick out of Brian's write-up i bet, i'll send it to him. I wish he'd make a hubski account and share some of his experiences/thoughts on the subject. He sold out of all of his honey as soon as he harvested it (it tastes really great). When he harvests some more next summer I'll try to convince him to send some to you.
