    The "01.01.2013" date print in the clip does cause me to ponder "Irish Humour.".............Not that it really matters. >)

    Which one of the 9 Glens"
    It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't.

    Every time I replace the spare battery when I'm hunting it resets the date & time, so I have given up fixing it.

    On the 2nd day we started off in a wood close to glenshesk, we then moved to the foot of glendun. I'm from a village called cushendall which lies at the foot of glenballyemon. But I hunt in all of the 9 glens.
