Okay, so the quote is waaaay outta touch with modern science but I still like it! I’ve BEEn interested in the wee BUZZards since I found out how unbelievably skilled and efficient they were in geometry. (I dig math, okay?!)
FACTS TO GET YOUR HEAD BUZZING ‘BOUT BEES…
~Bees do not see the color red but they can see ultraviolet colors
~~A queen bee chooses the sex of her offspring
~~~Honey bees are not born to make honey: they are taught by their elders
~~~~Been around for 30 million years
~~~~~A honeycomb is made of hexagonal cells with walls that are only 2/1000 inch thick, but support 25 times their own weight
~~~~~~Bees pollinate an average of 15 billion dollars in crops every year
~~~~~~~Bees dance to communicate
~~~~~~~~Bees are super-smart at math and can calculate angles
~~~~~~~~~The hexagonal honeycomb shape is a reflection of this ability, as it is the most efficient use of space for them to store food
~~~~~~~~~~Honey is the only food made by insects that is eaten by man
~~~~~~~~~~~Honey has everything in it to sustain life, with an added antioxidant that promotes brain functioning
~~~~~~~~~~~~Human brains have trillions of glial “glue” cells that form a honeycomb pattern that nourishes and protects neurons
I stayed up way too late the other night watching The Code on the Science Channel. For some reason my brain gets hungry for information late at night. I started watching The Code and was blown away (ha!) by the bubble artist and his explanation of the conservation of space that bubbles inherently possess. Check out the video, even if you’re not a number or shape freak, the bubble formations are incredible to watch!
Okay, so the song is dorky but I would only be kidding myself if I did not own up to my dorky-side:)
I love Malt Shop Oldies (yes, I got that term from the infomercial) and I thought it was perfect for today’s alluring VENUS TRANSIT!
This is a SUPER DUPER time for everyone on this beautiful planet as the SUN and VENUS are joined together in the sky! I found this sweet little article that goes more in-depth and what I particularly found crazy/cool is that the author gives a mini-history lesson on the transit, as well! Hope you enjoy!
Don’t hold back! SPREAD YOUR LOVE!

The roots of my intrigue with astrology seem almost imprinted in me. I have ALWAYS questioned the reasoning for stars it seems as though I have just always “known” about horoscopes, since I cannot recall ever being taught. My higher perception of astrology has given me an overall higher perception and awareness of both the Physical and Spiritual aspects of myself~

Did ya get to see the Eclipse last night??!! I loved seeing the pics but unfortunately, I was not in a peek site to see it well and it got awfully cloudy her in Mid-Missouri Although I did not get the pleasure of seeing it with my own eyes, I sure as hell felt it’s effects! The annular eclipse was in the sign of Gemini (Twins) that rules my HOME and FAMILY~ I spent the morning hanging out with my daughter, playing board games; the afternoon joyriding with my husband talking (I verbalized my desire to go for my Master’s in Psychology/Counseling) and listening to Silversun Pickups new album Neck of the Woods (which is phenomenal!! XOXOXO)! ; and spent the evening by myself, as my two darlings were asleep by 8:30PM!
I am an only child and I am not ashamed to admit that I flippin’ love to be by myself~~ I can reflect and think and ponder and wonder and do whatever the heck I wanna! (FREEDOM!!) For some reason I was drawn to read the Book of Revelation! Yes, weird, I know, but Gemini rules the mind and I just rolled to where my mind took me, ya dig? I’m still on a bit of a mind trip from that read but luckily, I found an artful and brilliantly directed movie to deflect the thoughts of the Seven Seals, called Blue Valentine, with Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams.
I did not jump on The Notebook bandwagon and to honest, the only flick I’ve seen him in is Remember the Titans but after watching Blue Valentine, I could feel a kick of OCD set in cuz I wanna see every film he has acted in, now! I thought Blue Valentine was simply beautiful, perhaps because it mirrored quite closely to the my own marriage in many ways. There is reverent subtlety that is used to encompass many deep aspects (alcoholism, mental/physical abuse) that I thought was genius because it gave more power to the acting.
Watching it made me feel extremely greatful that my husband was sleeping (snoring, actually) right beside me because three years ago he was not. We had moved to this ugly dimension of resentment and anger, which led me to pick the hell up and leave. At the time, my daughter was two and I thought I was doing the right thing. “She doesn’t deserve to see all this arguing and fighting” I would say. I was shocked as all get out that happiness did not lie in my departure and shocked even more when I finally realized and took responsibility for my own behavior and part in the breakdown of our relationship, which in turn gave me great empowerment to get back everything that was thrown away so quickly (everything except my Christmas decorations…) I was pissed at myself for not fulfilling my “potential” and hated my ho-hum life,which shadowed all the positive aspects of my personality and I morphed into SUPER BITCH. I called out every wrong behavior on my husband him but did not clearly see my own and I blamed the hell out of him, wasting gobs of energy into a bottomless pit of ~ Blue Valentine is both heartwarming and heartbreaking, as you watch the characters morph into their own ugly dimension.
Ahhh, this Eclipse is still workin’ its energy in my mind, my actions and my attitude towards pretty much everything!
