Friday, 21st December, 2012     Greetings all,  ‘End of the World…again?’ I here you scream. With all the hysteria that has built up around 21/12/2012 & it’s Doomsday connotations, Bird&Bee reveals their last ditch attempt to dispel the myth that the end of the world is nigh!   You Maya have also heard weird and wonderful rumours about what is or isn’t going to happen to our planet Earth and it’s inhabitants today. As we hurtle around the Sun at 29.7 km per second, it is no small miracle that we exist in the first place, let alone try to predict when its all going to go horribly wrong.   I have written a witty little debunk on this highly unimportant and highly amusing topic which some of you will hav…

Thursday 13th December 2012  Greetings all,[As I write this, the low sun is striking a crystal pendulum hanging from  my window frame, exploding light beams all over the kitchen walls in a full spectrum of colours.] Firstly, as the New Moon appears today, I would like to say thank you to all the people that came to see us at Kelham Island Museum in early December and outside the Lincoln Cathedral last weekend. Harmony produced over 1000 drawings in the last 2 weeks - every one as unique as a fingerprint! We are just catching up with ourselves and should be on top of orders by Friday. For those of you who got to make your own drawings, we now have Harmony Drawing Packs available in the shoppe as well as Dr. Titus Bee's Astounding Oracular Pendulums (ask q…

Monday 12th November 2012 Hello to all, Our trees play an enormous part in our landscapes and in our lives; the way the sunbeams play through the leaves and branches on a breezy Autumn morning; the cycles that they complete throughout the year; the habitats they create and the food and resources that they supply in abundance – enough to cheer the soul whatever the forecast. After the almost complete demise of the Elm Tree in Britain & Europe in the late 1960s, we need to do all we can to make sure Fraxinus excelsior – the Ash, doesn’t meet with the same fate. We can all help stop the spread of Chalara fraxinea by looking out for tell tale signs and help to map the spread of this disease (find out how you can help below).   Two weeks ago, Hurricane Sandy bro…

Tuesday 27th November 2012 Greetings all, Busy, busy Bird&Bee - we have two more great 'Harmony' shows coming up shortly.  The first at Kelham Island Museum, Sheffield, as part of their 20th, wonderful Victorian Christmas Market (1st-2nd December). The museum houses some of the UK's finest engines and machines including the Crossley Gas Engine (1915), with a 14 tonne flywheel and 'The Don', an engine the size of a house! There's also a huge Dickensian Market, reindeer, a working train and us of course! You can find Bird&Bee by going through the Crucible shop, past 'The Don engine'  and outside the Hawley Gallery out the back! Please come and say hello and have a go with Harmony!   The second show, we are very pleased to announce, f…

As we tilt toward the Sun...

 Wednesday 21st March 2012 Today is the first day of Spring and the Sun is now spending more time above the horizon than below. So I thought I would take the opportunity to say hello and wish you all well as we tilt towards the Sun once more. The Vernal Equinox and the Autumnal Equinox are the only two days when, if you were standing on the Equator, the Sun would pass directly overhead. If you were up on the North Pole then the Sun would be skimming the horizon, full circle, beginning an uninterrupted 6 month day. Since 1582 we use the Gregorian Calendar (from Pope Gregory X111) which gives us the 365.25 days as one full year. The actual 'tropical' year is 365.24219 days (time it takes for the Earth to complete one exact orbit around the Sun). This meant that even though t…
