    I have a couple of questions for you, and please feel free to not answer them if you don't feel like it:

    ( 1 ) Could you please comment on this old post of mine, regarding Lachlan's car chip? Link to post = http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showpost.php?p=4882956&postcount=413


    ( 2 ) Could we safely assume that you are in the DR area (CR, Pembroke, Petawawa, etc.)?

    Thank you in advance

    ETA: One more question, if I may, please:
    ( 3 ) You mentioned "a spare torch" -- Does it mean Lachlan was carrying a flashlight, and had a spare one in his pocket? (unless I'm wrong in assuming torch means flashlight).

    Well, then, can we assume:

    #2. That you are in some country where "torch" does not mean a flaming stick, usually fueled by gas; and

    #3. If not, that would be painful.

    Forgot to add that "gas" is known as petrol in some countries.

    Thank you Mole

    My question ( 3 ) was actually: "( 3 ) You mentioned "a spare torch" -- Does it mean Lachlan was carrying a flashlight, and had a spare one in his pocket?

    When you mentioned SPARE torch, I immediately pictured Lachlan carrying another torch or perhaps using a headlamp, like the one mentioned in this site:

    By far the most popular destination for a moonlight ski is none other than Gatineau Park! You can classic or skate in a large part of the park at night. It's best on nights were it's snowing, because then the reflected light from the city really makes it brightest. The moon does a great job of lighting up the trails when it's out at full strength and generally there is enough moonlight or reflected light from the city for good visibility. A head lamp is sometimes needed on those moonless or cloudless nights. A headlamp, ~$25 at MEC for an LED version, is always a good idea for when you need to find your keys or apply some wax to your skis. They also help you see oncoming skiers. One tip on how to avoid being yelled at - Don't shine your light in the eyes of oncoming skiers!

    Burma, Ridge Road and other smaller trails are sometimes an option on nights were there's low clouds or snow. But they aren't always so inviting at night if you are unfamiliar with the terrain. Even with a headlamp, a 90 turn or bump isn't always obvious quickly enough at night when I find your senses are a bit dulled. It's for that reason that night skiers tend to stick to the wide open parkways. These can be a bit cold and windy, so bundle up a bit more than usual.

    A flashlight is called a torch in England and most people who
    have come here from England still call it a torch.

    Also petrol is a common name for gasoline in European countries.

    A flashlight (usually called a torch outside North America) is a hand-held electric-powered light source.

    The name flashlight is used mainly in the United States and Canada. In other English-speaking countries, the more common term is torch or electric torch.

    UFOs at the UN -- A Close EncounterUpdated: 2 hours 5 minutes ago

    AOL News (June 25) -- Will the European Union disclose any UFO files it might have, as one lawmaker called for several days ago, perhaps bringing new facts to a field long relegated by government officials as science fiction?

    Maybe, but this isn't the first time world leaders have had a close encounter with UFOs.

    As AOL News reported here earlier this week, Italian Northern League party leader Mario Borghezio has urged all 27-member EU governments to open the books and reveal any previously secret UFO files.

    IMHO, the second link (red arrow) has Welsh Bay marked in the wrong place. Wouldn't that red square be where Tack Point is?
    If you 'pan' that map, you will find another Bay to your right, which in my opinion is Welsh Bay. At least that is what Google Map shows.

    Could someone local please confirm this? And in the process, could you please indicate where exactly is Tack Point ~~ is Tack Point the name of that whole smaller bay or is Tack Point that "point" that sticks out from that small bay. THANKS!!!

    More Welsh Bay

    "Deep River Ice
    Because the Ottawa River narrows between Deep River and Chalk River, it tends to clog with pack ice. Consequently, the ice remains longer off Deep River than at Point Alexander. But with care, you could probably launch your canoe from the Deep River Pier if you really wanted to.

    Reports have it that for the last several days, bald eagles have been fishing the edges of the pack ice. I may have seen a pair today, but I'm not sure. I returned later with better binoculars but all I saw were gulls and crows.
