I wish that I would have realized that before I spent 15 minutes filling out the forms for buying a license on the Maine IF&W web site.

My wife, being all cool and shit, ordered me the 8 frame hive kit that I had my eye on. It came in a box with about 100 little pieces of wood. I couldn't bring myself to nailing the kit together, so I broke out the brass screws and the wood glue. I'm looking forward to dumping a big box of bees in to it this Spring. Hopefully they call it home.
I'm probably going to build another hive as well, but this time, I'll probably build the boxes myself.

This new socket is pretty nifty. I'm always amused when we come out with specialty tools, designed to make a specific task easier. This particular one is for removing turbo flange bolts on six liter diesels. It's just a funky little ten millimeter socket. The part that I like the best about things like this is that somebody, somewhere along the way will find a use for this that is even better than its origin intended use.
