I just watched the full version.

There are many qualities that I admire in people. Dedication, the pioneer spirit, invention, ability over adversity......

The one quality that I admire most in anyone is idiocy.

I admire your qualities, sir!

Thanks? I think? LOL
The full version really does show my ineptitude much more than the edited version..

Every time you get stung all you have to do is think of the delicious mead you will have in the future. At least that's what I'd do.

Aw man, that sucks! I got hurt by chicken wire , but so far no bee injuries to me today. They were so cooperative, it was amazing.

The worst thing though, is I've had "Eye of the tiger" in my head all weekend, with thoughts of me running around the yard blasting the smoker everywhere...

ANywho, I'll keep my bees' progress updated too and keep checking on yours too. Its fun stuff so far!

So do you guys have any books that you recommend for beginning beekeeping?

There are tons of books on the subject, and I am not an expert by any stretch of the imagination, but the best book I read, and the one that I refer to the most is the revised and updated version of "The Backyard Beekeeper" by Kim Flottum.. It's got tons of full color pictures which really help.. It's an awesome, awesome, hobby.. I spent half the day yesterday just watching the bees! It was the first day since I installed the hive that the weather was good.. we have several fruit trees and the bees were simply going CRAZY gathering nectar and pollen.. It's so cool to watch them buzz back into the hive just covered in pollen...
