Renovating some WBC's as garden ornaments (although one may be a bait hive next year). Then trying to dig up some 'Tree of heaven' roots until I give up and resort to beer and watching F1.

Overseeing the filling in of a swimming pool to make a sunken garden with a waterfall at one end. Will have a slabbed floor and raised flower bed all round. Barbie and seating area will fit in nicely!

And HWTHSBO has made me the first of some brood boxes to hold 2 nucs each with solid division. Looking good- ready for those swarms next year (not mine, I hasten to add)- and queen breeding - :)

I am trying to understand powerpoint.

I seem to have got into giving bee talks (to the totally uninitiated, thank the Lord!). This is going to snowball, I feel, and it is a good way to help subsidise the new out apiary.
I have a computer - obviously - so what the hell is powerpoint-what extra equipment do I need (have a laptop) how do I get started - help.
Not a computer nerd, but this is all new to me :ack2:

Love the outfit:cheers2:

You will need a digital projector.

Fragile buggers, you have to wait until they have cooled before switching mains of or the bulb will fry. Some bulbs can be £100's, so watch which model you get.

A real minefield when buying.
