===Ok…if I ever need more bees, I am getting them as Nucs…(Nucleus hives) ===I just had the best experience I have ever had with a hive install.  There is a breeder reasonably local to me, who breeds Russians that he is adapting to the area.  I just got a nuc from him…5 frames of bees [...]

Mithlond Weekend postponed…and other things!

Friday, July 29th, 2011

===Indeed, we are re-scheduling…while seeing the one person that did not have scheduling issues would have been wonderful, it is not quite the “reconnect/hang with cool folks at Mithlond” weekend that could have been.  So I will be scheduling for the re-start of the regular event in August, and will post up when we choose [...]

==Oh, good…I have been looking for videos of someoen working with a loom like mine: Weaving on the Schacht Table Loom ===Mine is based on this design…some differences, such as mine being a fair bit larger, but this will be a great help in learning how to use it.  ((I have a fondness for hand-woven [...]

In the heat…..

===For the first: The website for Crossing the Thresholds 7 has been updated!. ===I am rather pleased with the folks that have picked up the slack that developed with my being (possibly) unavailable for the daytime hours of Thursday and Friday, and apparently the co–organizers scheduling issues falling during the same time.  I will be [...]

Not a bad weekend, overall…

===I got most of the paperwork I needed to get done, done. (sending off some stuff that needs to be hardcopy today…we got ink for the printer, after we finally remembered that we needed it and had the information with us to get it.  I di wish they designed computer printers these days to just [...]

===Edited with new info: ===It is happening September 8-11 this year. ===Due to a number of things going on at the moment, I am not as involved in the planning and such.  If you are attending, it is best to contact Andy Cowan at : awc34@cornell.edu directly. He is handling a lot of the logistics [...]
