I Do, I do! I love it, absolutely love it! I use the "Top Bar hive" method, which is also known as Organic beekeeping. It is a more natural method of keeping bees, same deal pretty much, but they are allowed to draw their own comb etc...
I am reading "the barefoot beekeeper". Really great book, but not really great pictures.
Check out this websight...http://www.backyardhive.com/
And this is the bookhttp://www.biobees.com/cb_sale2.html
I have 2 young children and I feel completely safe having the box as honey bees keep to themselves. It is so easy, I wish I got started sooner.
Good luck, keep me updated!
