Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up out in the country near a small town in southern WI. and

nature, beekeeping, insects, plants,..etc.

probably not be what anyone would call,.. "professional",..is
I like to put up a few Bluebird houses around in the countryside
and take care of my honey bees. I'am a "good listener" if that's
