Well, inspite of having flu (and having a birthday lunch when I should have been in bed) I had a rather fruitful day in terms of beekeeping kit aquisition....

...When I moved out of the folks' place back in 1997, I left quite a bit of kit in a shed that was subsequently dismantled and I presumed all had gone..but not so.

Dad said he'd been digging about in one of his remaining 3 sheds and found a bit of my old bee kit....

A honey warming cabinet with thermostatic bar heater
A 100kg stainless steel honey ripener with seive
72 glass jars and 144 caps
assorted frames that need cleaning up
1 large tub of pdb crystals (yes I know!!)

all in all a fruitful day !

oh, and I still have flu !

regards

Somerford

At least the good news might make you feel a little better!

A couple hundred quids worth, maybe more. Hpoe you haven't replaced all these bits with new - or that may make you feel worse!!

You are welcome to the flu. I'll get my jab on Thursday.

Regards, RAB

Well done:.) Not sure how you forgot about all that though, or maybe I do know as my memory not great:.)

Hope you feel and get better soon:.)
