Åbro Sigill (Öl)

Sigill kommer från Åbro som är ett av Sveriges klassiska bryggerier från den Småländska östkusten, Kalmar. Dom benämner själva produkten som ekologisk lager som är krav märkt. Vid upphällning i ett för ändamålet anpassat glas och man därefter tar en första klunk, så det man slås av är hur mycket man vill att det ska vara sommar och ha sin favorit sill framför sig med perfekt kokt potatis till. Vid första klunken känner man en lätt citrus smak, som avslutas med en härlig lagom beska långt bak i gommen. Humlen ger sig till känna och med sina 5,2% i alkoholstyrka så är detta verkligen en öl för kompiskvällen och utan problem kan det avnjutas 8-10 st. Enligt systembolagets hemsida vill dom även göra gällande att den har en smak av rostat bröd, vilket jag inte kan känna. Continue reading

Upside down trees (Mysteries)

The Mystery of the Upside Down Tree

In different areas of North America, people have found trees, big trees, that have been uprooted and shoved back down into the ground in an inverted position. Does bigfoot cause this, or is there some other explanation?

One photo on that site shows an upside down tree found on top of a ridge in Northern Colorado. It was located near an old burn area and the site says, “This is Sasquatch related activity mainly found in the West, Canada, and Alaska.” The upside down tree is estimated to be about 30 feet tall and looks as if it has been in that position for awhile. As noted on that site such a feat would require either machinery or a phenomenal amount of strength. The site also notes that such feats are demonstrations by Bigfoot of their strength and they are signs to let others know they are still in the area.

It might be noted that upside down trees with the tops buried 5 to 7 feet in the ground and roots showing towards the sky is not anything new and has nothing to do with Bigfoot. They are found in a place called Glacier Gardens in Juneau, Alaska. In that botanical garden you will find just such upside down trees. They garden calls them “Flower Towers.” Their website even tells you how to grow your own! Of course you have to dig a hole at least 5 feet deep to accomplish the feat. Fish netting is used to line the root ball of the tree and mosses are put down over the netting for nutrients.

So might not the upside down trees found in the wilds of Alaska, Canada, and Colorado might not be the product of loggers? This is certainly possible and even probable. To slam a tree 5-7 feet into the ground would require phenomenal power and although Bigfoot is physically stronger than humans I highly doubt they are strong enought to accomplish something of this magnitude.

CD skivan är snart död (På Engelska)

If the CD isn’t dead already, its days are certainly numbered at record stores.

While looking through year-end figures for 2014, Paul Epstein, owner of Denver’s Twist & Shout Records, noticed something he hadn’t seen in 25 years: Gross dollar sales of vinyl records had surpassed that of CDs.

“There’s a romance with (vinyl) now,” Epstein said. “For years, millions of people have swapped convenience for aesthetics and in some crazy cultural way they all woke up and realized they had nothing and their music means nothing and iPods suck and they want to get back to music and caring about it.”
