Bees' Bermuda Triangle Theory

Bees here with an exciting update about the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle.
I have the answer to the long standing question of what's behind the strange disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle region.
Hard to believe? Yes, but it's true.

Pictured above is the area widely known as the Bermuda Triangle. Over the years many planes and ships have disappeared under mysterious circumstances in this region and no one has ever been able to come up with a conclusive explanation as to why. Until now! (Imagine some really heavy music at this point.)

Now we all know that the Earth's Magnetic Field is in the process of reversing. If you don't know this or believe me check out some facts (from Nature), findings (National Geographic), and figures. And during a reversal several million years ago there were fluctuations in the Earth's Magnetic field of up to 6 degrees within a day! Woah.

This diagram shows the current variation of the field.

This shows how the field has fluctuated over the past few hundred years.

Looking at the images depicting earth's magnetic field you can see that the field varies considerable from place to place and from time to time. My hypothesis is that the degree of variation/fluctuation within the Bermuda triangle is such that it causes flights, etc. to go off course irreparably.

Pilots of smaller planes generally plot their flight plans according to true north, however the navigation while in flight is plotted by magnetic north and is controlled by electronic equipment. There would be major discrepancies between the flight plan and the actual course if the magnetic field were fluctuating. If North were to change by even a few degrees it could put a pilot so far off course they would never reach their destination.

So there's my theory.

It's either that or as Lawrence Kusche explained in his book The Bermuda Triangle Mystery - Solved there really is no Bermuda Triangle because statistically occurrences of disappearances are the same as in every other region of the ocean...
You decide!

Eagle vs. Snake

Eagle Vs Snake at Bees and Trees on Etsy

The eagle, representative of spiritual flight, battles the snake which is representative of physical, earth-bound existence. This is the struggle of all who seek to elevate their consciousness beyond the illusory, earthly concerns.

Miss Ecstatic 1962

Miss Ecstatic at Bees and Trees on Etsy
Miss Ecstatic hops up quickly and nearly skips to the door. She's wearing the cultured pearls she got at her sweet 16 party last April and her brand new Haymaker Orlon sweater. "My, this outfit was a prescient choice!," she bubbles to herself. She hadn't been expecting a caller, but in Miss Ecstatic's opinion it's always a good idea to dress as if one is.

Hopefully there are still a few cucumber sandwiches in the fridge from the get-together last night...

Today is the First Day

Bees and Trees start today on a journey to spread enlightenment and love throughout the world.

Bees and Trees are a couple of bindlestiffs from Tennessee. We don't live there now, of course. That's how it goes when you're a bindlestiff.

We spent a couple of years tramping around the Detroit area, but soon the Motor City grew stale and we had to move on. Thus began our long and troublsome time in the big city. New York City.

Then we got the North Carolina Blues again and packed up our few belongings for the long journey south. One ABF truck and 2 cabins later we found a place for ourselves in Asheville, NC. The mountain air is doing us good.
