May 28, 2012/From the Hive

Hive Number Seven is my first successful split. This hive is an offspring of Hive Number one, the crew that was busting out in January. Yesterday I noticed this bearding, which was about three times this amount at its peak, so I knew that the queen was laying (but checked to be certain) and it was time to move them into a standard ten frame five.

    If only the politicians were more like bees! The hive is the oraingsm and the individuals give for the benefit of that oraingsm. Bees are not about the individual bee. They are about the group. They cannot exist as individuals; they are totally interdependent. Their motto would be one for all because without the all there would not be a single one. As for politicians, how many of them see beyond themselves and the small group that they think are like them?
