Hello, Elizabeth,

  Thank you for the personal invitation to the Beeks meeting. It's a maybe. I have 7 horses that must be fed and stalled or they whine that I'm being so mean to starve them. Plus, and I hate to admit it, I really don't like driving at night anymore.  sigh   I'll see if someone I know who lives down here in the valley could give me a ride.

Sorry for the slow response. I am a California native going to school in Bar Harbor, ME., but scouting for internships all over the country because I want to live in a new place for the summer.

Sure. I can probably use all the help I can get. If you are referring to the cut out Ben set up then I am hoping to do it this Wed afternoon/evening. I am still fairly new to beekeeping but not new to construction & contracting.
