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
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.
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.
I regret I am unable to enter into correspondence due to time
Search Facility and Indices
The ease with which a site can be navigated is an important
consideration. This particular site started small and grew in a
ragged fashion. My original, graphic "Shortcuts" routine
worked well up until development reached about 200 pages, but it
became slower as more was added to it, also during that time data
loading on the internet has increased and transfer rates have slowed considerably.
The next stage was the "A - Z" INDEX, but even
that started to show signs of overload at about 450 pages. I have now
created a set of "A - Z" INDICES that are arranged by
subject. This full set can be found on the
Find page. This page is a subset
of indices that covers all non beekeeping subjects.
The Search Box above only searches among beekeeping topics on this website.
