Hi Matthew.  I check our Well Fed Neighbor site every day even though there is not much activity on it these days.  Habits are hard to break.  I still need to go see Bill on his tomato blight thing.  Anyway, per our conversation recently, I found a phone number for the totes we were talking about.  It's 417-718-8646 and the price I have on my note is $75.00 for a 275 gallon size.  This note is dated (probably two years old) so I can't guarantee the info on it.  I do see some on Craig's List occasionally.  Hope you guys are all doing good.  Merry Christmas ole bud.

Our supply is running low, so it's good timing, too.

Looks like cold weather is here. I'm sure the trees don't mind as much as I do.

Thanks Matthew we enjoyed the visit.  I think JKan Michael will have bees this year and I will benifit from it.  You had a great crowd there today and everyone appeared to be having a great time. Thanks again

Bill, quite alright to bring him by. We'll start the fire between 9:30 and 10, and as you know, it will go for a while.

Sorry about your mat. I'm going to buy one if I can find it.

Matthew I'll Try to get by and watch for a little while.  I can't believe its already that time of year.  I have a next door neighbor that is wanting to get into bee keeping.  He has been reading up on natural hives.  I told him about your hives and I was wondering if I could bring him by so you could tell him about hem?  My heat mat (I use the term loosley) bit the dust, so I am a little behind schedule.

Hey Bill, I was wondering the same for you and your sprouting.

We did tap a few days ago, and will continue to tap a few more.

I'll be boiling next Saturday, Jan 26th. If anyone here wants to stop by, let me know. It won't be a problem.

Great visits from both of you, Bill and Gary. Haven't bottled yet, but there's between 1 and 2 gallons from today. Thanks for the help and the artichokes and the company. There's worse things than being called defiant, and it might just fit anyway.
