    Home-schooled daughter of a civil engineer and ornithologist (as the twig is bent...), university-trained in plant science, married to an inventor. Life-long odd-duck, I'm afraid. Prefer stinging invertebrates to most humans.

    I have a Petroleum engineering degree from Texas A&M college. It became a university in 1965. I still work part time drilling hostile environment deep wells and some desk-top work. I've spent most of my career in the field, and since the oil patch folks are very out-going and gregarious, I would think I am very extroverted.

    Beekeeping certainly goes along with my interests and personality. I'm an organic chemist. There are quite a few engineers who are excellent beekeepers in my local club, but among the best are also those who know agriculture.

    I agree with Chemguy in that I believe those with agricultural backgrounds are among, if not, the best beekeepers. The ag people are accustomed to caring for livestock, and they are well adapted to the constant observation and NOTATION of all livestock.

    BS in Animal Science. It only takes an hour or two of computer work, telephone calls, or paperwork in this complicated world before I need to get some "bee therapy" to wind down and remember what's important in life.

    I was a carpenter when I started keeping bees. I've been a computer programmer for the last 30 years. I took 16 semester hours of college chemistry, 13 semester hours of biology, 5 semester hours of physics and 10 semester hours of math, just because I was interested in them.
