Riverbee's Loss count
« on: April 08, 2018, 05:22:49 pm »
Riverbee is asking who lost how many hives everyone has lost.  I wonder if she's going to calculate the percentages for the forum.

I hope she does the math right.

For example, if you had five hives going into Winter, and came out of winter with only four hives, then you would have suffered a 14% loss.

Don't believe me?  Just as Ma and Pa:



What you say about someone says a lot more about what kind of person you are, than about the other person.
How you treat someone you like reflects your taste.
How you treat someone you don’t like reflects your character.

Don't argue with me about proper math.  Others have used this technique with great success.

For example, did you know that if Perry were to add 7 new hives to his apiary each week, he would have 28 new colonies at the end of 13 weeks?

Don't believe me?  Just ask my good friend, Costello:





What you say about someone says a lot more about what kind of person you are, than about the other person.
How you treat someone you like reflects your taste.
How you treat someone you don’t like reflects your character.
