Dave Cushman died on 22nd February 2011 and shortly before he died he asked me to take over his websites. I later learnt he bequeathed them to me. I am a beekeeper and we discussed the future of the beekeeping website with Dave telling me I could develop it how I wished. He specifically asked that all non-beekeeping websites and pages stay exactly as they are and I promised I would maintain them as long as I could. I understand his reasons and will respect them, so I am unable to accept any offers of additions or updates.
I am aware these pages are used for reference by many people. I am happy for them to continue to be used providing the user is satisfied the information is suitable for their purposes and they take the necessary precautions.
Throughout these pages there may be references to people who may no longer be with us. I have deliberately left the information for historical purposes. Please be thoughtful if you try to contact them and try to find out the situation before doing so.
Dave lived in the U.K. Midlands at SYSTON, Leicestershire.
The emblems at left indicate my aspirations in web coding and my attempt to adhere to high standards. However in some cases, non standard code has been applied in order that the pages will render in a reasonable fashion on those browsers that do not adhere fully to the rules laid down by W3. Such non standard code is usually ignored by those browsers that do play by the rule book.
The pages will render very much more quickly than sites that rely on software generated code.
