Congratulations Cliff! Nice getting to know you. I know some friends from Jersey that are into “pest control” too. :wink:

Beekeeping, huh? Pretty cool. You have your own apiary? I’ve always thought that was cool. My land is too small to have any hives.

Thank you all. My brother has been a beekeeper 20 years. I just take the stings for him for a dash of honey. I have 3 active hives.
I am enjoying the forum almost as much as the lessons here on banjo ben. I am tinkering with Flinthill Special, and Earl’s Breakdown after getting some Keith tuners from the store here. Two of my favorite scruggs tunes. I will obviously have to get back to the lessons after a delusional hiatus into Foggy Mountain but they sure are fun. I look forward to more Pickers of the week. Don’t forget your make over like I did if you are going to go admit in public to pickin banjo.
