  1. Picking a Deputy Principal position. A rural high school in the deep south. We picked up 8ha of land in Central Otago, near Alexandra, last year that we want to start building on. Will be the flashest bach around for a couple of years till we move there full time. The neighbours are an organically managed vineyard and other, similar sized blocks of land. When they were developed they were planted out in white clover and grasses. The whole area is white with clover late spring. Aside from being good for my bees, the view isn't bad. Was down there last week to mark out the building platform wi

  4. I wouldn't mind an inspector to do a few of my sites in 3 or four weeks, they can pull strips out while they're at it plus its always good to get another professional in to have a look once in a while.

I know what I wanted to say to her but I just politely suggested she cut the tree down if she didn't want bees around.

The rodeo was a very low key local event but obviously a significant event and very well attended.

There was netting over top of it which I guess stoped people falling in as everyone got more drunk as the day went on. As the day went on I started to wonder if the trough was big enough. There were separate plywood stalls for n

  7. The only case of AFB I ever had in my own hives was found when it was the first hive I went to in the spring. Even worse (?) it was in the burr comb between the boxes - I had cracked the top box and there in the bit of comb was an infected cell - not one doubt about it. I hadn't even, strictly speaking, lifted a beehive that season yet! Already, I was anticipating a massive level of infection through all my hives. That cell was the only one I ever found in the colony. Having AFB may not be a beekeeper's problem, but continuing to have AFB is the problem. And, as we know, it ca

  8. How do you know?? Plenty of others are trying and failing @Boot Not this again??? Why would a co-op be any more successful than any of the other companies currently trying to achieve higher than international prices.

  9. Long incubation period of COVID means the longer time at level 2. Not going to explain it here because it’s like apologies. As in, never apologise - your friends do not need it and your enemies will not believe you. Sounds like COVID explanations too
