Club Meetings | East Richmond Beekeepers Association

We really had a blast at the picnic, with around 30 folks and more food then we knew what to do with! The weather was amazing (who would have thought a mid-80′s day in July!)

/**
* issue #2: Bugfix for WebKit. Safari and similar browsers aren’t capable to handle jQuery.ready() right. The problem
* here was, that sometimes the event was fired (if js is not available in browsers cache) too early, so that not all
* pictures were displayed in the thumbnail bar. I added a timeout to give the browser time to load the pictures.
* During that time I found it nice to display a spinner icon to give the visitor a hint that “somethings going on there”.
* For this to display correctly I’ve added some lines to the css file too.
