It’s called “telling the bees”. Long ago, almost every rural British family who kept bees followed a strange tradition. Whenever there was a death in the family, someone had to go out to the hives and tell the bees of the terrible loss that had befallen the family. Failing to do so often resulted in further loss such as the bees leaving the hive, or not producing enough honey or even dying. Traditionally, the bees were kept abreast of not only deaths but all important family matters including births, marriages, and long absence due to journeys. If the bees were not told, all sorts of calamities were thought to happen. This peculiar custom is known as “telling the bees”. Not only is this custom a clue to our deep and wonderous connection to Nature, it hopefully will have you out today talking to the trees and bugs and all the small things upon the Earth. Can someone please go out and tell the bees that NASA is dead? How do we know? See the next story:
–We found the grave!! Deep beneath the Pacific Ocean at Point Nemo, the region between New Zealand and South America farthest from any landmass, lies a mass grave containing hundreds of discarded carcasses. These bodies, often shattered into several pieces as they descended, were once satellites, rockets, space stations, and other spacecraft carefully steered into the remote patch of ocean, dubbed the Spacecraft Cemetery, when they ran out of fuel or were otherwise decommissioned. #DownRange indeed!
–Put me under a tree. If you can’t do that, burn me atop one, I suppose. Missouri, here I come!!

We are usually able to wade through the heaping helpings of leafy green space goodness with relative ease, calm, wit, reserve, aplomb…it might take a bit of leafy green goodness off-air sometimes, but we make it to the end of the show with MOST of our frontal lobe intact. Until today. Today, today, today. Today,...

Today begins with a reluctant #WaltRant, one that comes from a deeply wounded, hurt-filled place. Over the last few months, a drama has been playing out in FE, and while not everyone was aware of the details, a story released at https://ourwayisthehighway.wordpress.com/2019/07/03/everything-that-was-beautiful-became-ugly-escaping-flat-earth-with-patricia-steere/ hit the web and revealed just how broken, splintered an...

Man, TALK about your lucky breaks!! When it comes to “Chance”, I say it’s time for NASA to start playing the LOTTO, buying scratch-offs, betting the ponies, shooting craps…wait, NOT the images they keep presenting, I meant the DICE game! Oh, but I kid the Space Clowns. It is entirely within the realm of possibility...

Walter J, [02.07.19 05:17] Thoth & Kinninagin, Planarly Speaking Today, we share a passage from the Emerald Tablets of Thoth – Tablet IV: The Space Born (Translation by Doreal) that perfectly describes traveling that astral plane and leaving behind the ideas of spinny space-pears and lands firmly on a Plane: List ye, O man, to...

We shared a story on our last show about a study declaring that Millenials are growing horns on the back of their skulls due to rampant mobile device use, a story urging any sane folk to let loose with a robust cry of “Shenanigans!!”. It reeked of utter-crap-reporting on an utterly crappy paper. Vindication is...
