    S4S, I`m surprised you like crows, the ones round my way certainly love lil squirrelets.

    Agent00Smiff, welcome to the real world! That`s what cookies are all about. Many times I see stuff on IAB that I was watching the previous day; when you get deja-vu it indicates that there is a glitch in the Matrix.

    @ Nickel2: Although crows and I have our differences, I still love them for their smarts. Raptors, by contrast, have little personality and seem like cold, heartless killing machines by comparison.
