So, did anyone ever figure out why all of the birds died?

So all of us could come to this thread and meet each other. Finding new friends to chat and share with, it was all part of a grander scheme

Ah, well, I don't mean to take a morbid tone on this, but it occurs to me that, if this incident actually happened, then we should all be concerned and invest a bit of effort into discerning the cause.

Afterall, if there IS something out there that is causing the sudden death of anyone or anything within its vicinity, then we could wind up 'chatting' about all of those "new friends" we met online who aren't with us anymore because no one bothered to exercise a little effort into discovering the cause of the bird deaths...

Just saying.

There is a cabin on US68 on the way to Lexington that proclaims it is the ACTUAL CABIN where Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote "Uncle Tom's Cabin". Historical Plaque and all! Well preserved by the KY Historical Society. It's right after Maysville and right at the Washington red light.(If that tells you anything) I 'spect you could use Google Earth 3D and walk around it.
There are several places throughout the state that lay claim to being the actual cabin where she "wrote" her book. I suspect she visited several cabins-areas, but did not "write" in any of them.

That is why I stated that "it was reported" that she had visited a slave market around Maysville which is a strong possibility since that was a "jumping off" point for run-aways crossing into Ohio over the river and many were recaptured by bounty hunters along the Maysville-Lexington Turnpike.

It would not have been uncommon for Harriet Beecher Stowe to visit several places that could have had some bearing on her 1851-52 book "Uncle Tom's Cabin". She was born in Connecticut but moved to Cincinnati at the age of 21 where she was a schoolteacher and novelist. She returned to Hartford after 1863.

I am late, was watching "RED TAILS". The story of the 332nd black fighter squadron known as the Tuskeegee Airmen that escorted the heavy bombers on the first bombing run of Berlin.

Later, I will watch Jimmy Stewart (who was one of the bomber pilots with the 8th Air Force) appearing in the Alfred Hitchcock classic "Vertigo". So have a good night and party without me, LOL

I believed they ruled that a methane explosion over at the old bird cemetery was the cause of all the dead birds falling from the sky.

Of course it could have something to do with government experimenting with bird mass mind control. They got in them birds' heads and made them want to dive bomb the ground.

Maybe it was all the fast food scraps they eat. Too heavy to fly?

Dog is up for the 3:30 am tree party but the roosters have yet to toot their horns. No fireworks here either, since there is no one around to light my fuse. LOL
