Okay, and in between reading those Australia, Brazil, Arizona and other current event headlines of the day, I've been reading a lot about those birds and fish that have been dying in the skies and seas and that have been in the news a lot lately, so much that I came across this post on one of those birdaholic websites to be found in internetland as follows:
Top 11 Reasons the Animals are dying
It's too Cold
Virus or Flu
They were drunk
Got caught in updrafts
They got confused
Old and died at the same time
It is just natural and normal
This has absolutely nothing to do with it
oil leaking from the Gulf floor
animals dying without explanation
bee colonies collapsing
compasses being off
the North Pole moving towards Russia
Increase in earthquakes, floods, volcanic actiity
Perfectly round "sinkholes"
Sun turning white
It's all perfectly normal.
Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind.
