Yes, I am buzzzzzed about bees. Mighty but small. Will look into sites. I was raised around bees. Most people are scared around them, but, they can sense the fear. Calmness is the key around bees.

Would like to raise honey bees someday. Do you know of any good sites? Honey bees are kind of endangered. Their little blite has not been a good one lately. Just moved about 2000 head of cattle today, so if this sounds slap happy, it is because I am slap happy. Have a great day!
