Something has gone wrong somehow.
It´s still below 0C (32F) but the rain has already started. Well rain is perhaps the wrong word, it´s more of a drizzle to be honest. But it is rather nice to be outdoors because of the rather high temperatures 🙂
I guess I can´t avoid it any longer since 70 birds, Jackdaws, just fell down from the sky and died. Most of them were dead already when they hit the ground and some died when a lorry ran over them. This has been happening all over the world lately, yesterday 8000 pigeons died in Italy. They have also found a lot of dead fish in many places but I really didn´t understand how bad things are until I read this article in the EUTimes! (the link will hopefully open up in a new window for You).
Birds and fish have died before in mass numbers but never in such short period, unless we are talking about earlier global catastrophes of course. So why do all these animals die now? Some blame the global heating, but as You know its getting colder here in Sweden so that doesn´t fit the deaths of our Jackdaws. Personally I like the theory about the Mayan calendar.
According to that calendar the earth as we know it will get destroyed in one way or the other. I think the Mayans blame it on all planets being in a straight line with some other thing out in the space. I´m not so sure about that though, from what I read that has happened before and nothing occurred then. Anyway, the calendar says that some time before the destruction of this planet birds and animals will die in quantities, lots of natural disasters like earthquakes, volcano eruptions and bad weather will happen too.
So far it seems they have had quite right in their predictions, but then again all predictions can be interpreted in almost any way to make it fit our history 🙂 🙂 :-)According to the Mayan calendar the last day we´ll meet is the 21st of December 2012. Personally I´m not that sure our days are counted yet, but I will buy a couple of Guinness a couple of days before sit down in the kitchen by the stove and wait to see if anything will happen 🙂
Until then however I´ll make a lot of pots with tea like the one I have done this morning 🙂 Have a great day now!
