American blood spilled to protect the freedom and peace of people all over the world.  320,000 USA casualties in WWI, 1,076,000 USA casualties in WWII, 128,000 USA casualties in the Korean War, 211,000 casualties in the Vietnam "conflict", 57,000 USA casualties in "War on Terror".  Benghazi, Libya, 13 USA casualties. These figures don't include 70,000 MIA.  But, the leaders of one political party of the United States of America continue to make the statement..."What difference does it make?".

"We can't expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism."..."The press is our chief ideological weapon." - Nikita Khrushchev

38 of fifty for me.  Most wrong answers were 'treatment related' and since I don't treat I suppose it was expected.  Some of the questions didn't leave room for other accepted methods (ie) Under feeding bees, sugar syrup wasn't even mentioned, so I had to choose corn syrup as a safe feed despite disagreeing with its use.  Oh well the test proclaims I am a formidable beek so I am satisfied.  I'll likely take it again sometime.

Got adequate beekeeper (29/50) the first time and
formidable beekeeper the second time (35/50).

Maybe I'll do better next year when I actually have some bees.   :)

Good test, I scored 34 our of 50. The history and honey composition questions got me. Didn't know much about flowers either. Made you think.
Later,

32 out of 50. Interesting quiz but some of it wasn't relevant to Aussie beekeeping.

For anyone having trouble opening this in Internet Explorer, try Google Chrome. Worked for me!

Scored a 30 ... which according to the test results makes me an 'adequate beekeeper'. Well, it's official. A test states I'm a beekeeper!
I printed my results and they are now displayed on my beekeeping trophy wall - which aside from the test results is empty.  :(
Can someone explain why Brits say 'Bee Keeper' (two words) while we say 'Beekeeper' (One Word) ???
