I am listening to: Sting "Fields of Gold"
My cocktail du jour: "Mead Wine"
The blow torch is produced and this is when the fusion of layers of wax takes place. This is a tense time and I need the supporting words of :-
WB Yeats as he reads to me about about "The Bee Loud Glade"- from his "I will arise an go now and go to Innisfree"
And My Honeys I am still excited and fascinated by the Fibonacci's concept. Earlier post
My reading has revealed the following on:
The Bee Ancestry Code
Fibonacci numbers also appear in the description of the reproduction of a population of idealized honeybees, according to the following rules:
If an egg is laid by an un mated female, it hatches a male or drone bee.
If, however, an egg was fertilized by a male, it hatches a female.
Thus, a male bee will always have one parent, and a female bee will have two.
If one traces the ancestry of any male bee (1 bee), he has 1 parent (1 bee), 2 grandparents, 3 great-grandparents, 5 great-great-grandparents, and so on. This sequence of numbers of parents is the Fibonacci sequence. The number of ancestors at each level, Fn, is the number of female ancestors, which is Fn−1, plus the number of male ancestors, which is Fn−2.
