Doing the crossword in the free paper Mr Babs brings home for me (the easy one) I actually learned something.

A beekeeper is called an apiarist.

There you go, I don't think I ever knew that before! I loftily announced to Mr Babs that "oh whatever it is, it must be based on the Latin". And it was, the latin for bee is apis. But I didn't know that either. We had to google it in the end, the dictionary was extremely unhelpful! And you don't know how hard that was for an ex-librarian to admit!
