Just wanted to let you know that I’ve really been enjoying your beekeeping videos on YouTube. I’ve been hanging around the fringes of beekeeping for some years now – I have a lot of gear and have helped other people keep their bees – and have finally decided to get hives of my own. I want to have them up and running by early spring, in time for the nectar flow here in Arkansas.

Anyway, wanted to let you know that you’ve helped germinate another beek! Thanks again, and have a great week!

Your spider plot of global temperature change is brilliant. May I use your code for the education purpose, for example, seminar or open day, at our university?

Best regards,
