BEEKEEPING CLASS INSTRUCTIONS

I just got an email with instructions and "waiver of liability and hold harmless agreement" that has to be signed and witnessed!  Nah, that's not making me nervous, no sir, not at all...LOL!
Clothing for the day:  Long sleeved shirt, blue jeans, a baseball hat, and boot or other sturdy shoe that covers the ankle.  I'll be there with bells on!
(or wait, that might scare the bees!)

I would love to have a source of honey in the yard but I have had a fear of bees for a long time. NOT that I don't think I couldn't get over that fear-I could, but I also know nothing about them. It is on my to-do list to get a book and read up on it so IF I ever get the chance to have some, I will at least have some idea what I am doing.

Come on. You're in insurance. You know they're trying to cover their butts 6 ways to Sunday. What if someone who doesn't know they have a bee allergy decides to take the class?

I can't wait to hear about your class. I'd love to do bee keeping, just don't have the time.

@becky3086: I totally understand. I haven't ever been frightened of bees, but I haven't been casual with them either. It's usually just a mutual respect and I leave them alone. The thought of intentionally stirring them up makes me nervous, but we'll see how it goes. I too know nothing about raising bees (I do have a couple of books that I've started reading lately). This class is a real introduction, so I'm hoping I'll learn some of the basics.

@kelly: of course they are covering their backsides, ha. It's probably like the fine print on the back of an amusement park ticket. "If you fly out of a roller coaster, we aren't responsible", ha. It should be fun though. I'll bring my camera and take lots of pictures.
