When I was a more frequent drinker it took me two boots to get a buzz. Now, I doubt it would even take one.

2 liters? Was that straight up or a mixed drink? I can do 2 liters of a mixed drink, but I'd probably pass out if it was straight booze.

It will Optimate you. It's a heavy dark German beer with twice the alcohol content of the mass-produced domestic swill.

Been a beekeeper since 1982, started in Phoenix AZ with the VanDruff Apiary
there ain't no bigger lie going around than CCD.
It's varrora mites that caused this false diagnosis, and not treating the apiaries
correctly. This was discovered in 2008 right after the first fallout in 2006 with Jim in FL.

Bees just up and abscond when mite overload happens. It's a proven fact.

so RJ hows your bees? or were you a typical save the beehaver, a status symbol person..."I have beees"...

hope not...most people since 2007 are wannabe beehavers and bee murderers. Buying bees to replace their untreated bees
after they kill them with bee diseases due to Varrora Mite overload in Aug/Sept and in Oct Nov they are dead gone. sad...

myself I manage 740 colonies, and have 400 nucs going into this winter. We harvested 47 tons of honey this year.
Sold 1200 Queens, and 1100 nucs.
and my winter losses are less than .01% for which I am Proud. typical due to winter cold and winter colony dead outs.

Takes a lot to be a BeeKeeper

Wow. 47 tons! That's a lot of honey.

Are you aware of this little device and if so, what do you think of it?

Someone sent me a link to this last year I believe. I'm not a bee guy or a honey guy, but I thought this was one of the greatest innovations I had ever seen.

Just awesome...absolutely AWESOME!!!!

Missing link there, Mark.

Tree, you collected 47 tons of honey! The number of bees needed to produce that volume is staggering. It must be in the hundreds!

Here's little story for you.

One time my friend Gerhard and I met for our usual Wednesday beer, and there were a couple of Swedes at the table next to us who were eating and drinking normal-sized beers. Gerhard and I usually drink out of one-liter mugs. They finished their meals, followed it with some kind of after-dinner schnaps, then ordered one-liter mugs for themselves. After they finished, they apparently asked whether there was anything larger. So out came two boots of beer. Assuming they were on their first beers when we came in, that's threee and a half liters of beer and a schnaps each. Now, I could do that myself over the course of a long evening--but I live in Germany. One of these Swedes was clearly not trained to accomplish such a feat, and he was literally stumbling all over the place. The other held up pretty well, though.


I went to Walt Disney World last summer and as part of the trip we FINALLY got to the Biergarten which is in the Germany section of EPCOT.

As part of the meal, we got a choice of beers. I don't remember what I had, I think it was probably a liter, but I couldn't finish it! I'm a wuss when it comes to beer.
