    When I joined BYC I lived in Sin City, USA....Las Vegas. It's a double entendre. And my first avatar was a photo of Peeps in a Strip Club, since removed. Twisted, yeah, I know. But it was pretty funny.

    Wow you all have been a very chatty bunch this weekend! [​IMG]
    SCG yes, I do think we know all about not winning drawings for things we really want. [​IMG]
    Bamadude, my avatar name is actually a version of my nickname. My nickname is DiDi and the first time I went to get an email address I wanted Dsquared but that was already taken so I took out a couple of vowels. I have used dsqard for many login names since.
    I went on a hike to a mountain lake on Saturday. It was my second big goal to do once I quit smoking because I didn't make it there the first time I tried. I made it to the lake and I swear got a cosmic reward for my hard work on the way down.

    Cynthia, you have probably heard of Lake Blanche in Big Cottonwood Canyon.



    It was a gorgeous day to do the hike and a gorgeous trail to take.

    I still think it's funny, at least the peeps didn't have any bite marks.

    I've never used a queen excluder.
    I've seen some people use mediums for brood chambers but around here we usually use 2 deeps on each hive for brood. The queen rarely goes above the second deep. We think it's important to get a lot of brood built up through the summer and deeps are better for getting the cluster through the winter.
    2 deeps will give the cluster a lot of honey above it to move up into as winter progresses.
    I always use foundation. I have a mix of equipment. Wax foundation, plastic foundation and full plastic frames. I have mostly deeps and shallows but I have about 3 medium supers.

    Do you know a good way to catch a pet rat that is running around my back porch? There are lots of hiding places but he comes out periodically day and night.
    I want to catch it alive.

    Beautiful pictures.
    In my mind, I was pronouncing your screen name like discard.[​IMG]

    Cynthia or any other Utah people near Orem?
