Horrified by the news of another wildfire in California, I set myself to prepare a listening activity for my students so they could get into the habit of watching news in English. It was then, when I happened to ‘bump into’ some terrible facts that seem to make some of these fires different from the ones we are, unfortunately becoming more and more familiar with. Some of these fires don’t seem to behave like any other fire. The video is from The Watchman Reporter on Youtube, and I don’t agree on his theory about a divine intervention behind these fires, but I agree that the issues he mentions in his video, make one wonder if they have been caused by other means rather than accidents or arsonists. Watch the video and reach your own conclusion, as this may be true or not.
Now the cold weather has arrived, people retire from the streets early to take refuge in their warm houses and, as usual there is nothing decent on telly. Now is the time when we really feel like curling up on our couches, cat-like, with a hot cup of tea, cocoa or coffee, opening an enjoyable book for a peaceful evening read. Many of you have told me about your literary taste, and a few even said they were keen on horror stories. I happened to come across Madeleine’s blog with these incredible, bone-chilling stories and I would like to share them with you.
Be aware! You may hear strange noises, see creeping shadows and never, ever sleep again!
