    Seems an odd place to store duct tape.

    You suck at life. Why don't you quit?

    My dad told me I could be anything I wanted when I grew up. So I became an Asshole.

    I think we made 1 mistake, we fed the bees another dollop of honey that I don't think they needed, bees are all in the hive today instead of out looking for nectar on such a nice day

    They'll have that cleaned up in no time I'm sure. I glanced at my hives today before I left for work and there was pretty heavy traffic in and out, at least for what I've seen so far. It's definitely a nice day. I'm hoping to see a lot of new comb drawn when I do my inspection Friday.

    I have plenty of traffic in and out yesterday when the plate of honey inside the hive was nearly empty, today, not so much traffic
