You don't actually have to eat the haggis... the site offers a treasure hunt and prizes.

HEY! I HAD haggis when I was over in Scotland... And it is sooooo good! (The real stuff, not the came-in-a-can crap) It's the blood pudding that I cant stand.

Haggis tastes just like spicy (read HP sauce) ground beef.

I'm glad the game didn't involve tracking down and dispatching a creature such as that depicted in your post....not much meat on those shanks...kinda puny and sick looking...not really good table fare.

As for searching the ral "Haggis" from the web cams...how hard can it be to spot a wad of grain and tallow boil4ed inside a sheep's stomach from these telephoto angles....I bet a true scotsman can spot a haggis at 2000 yards and smell one even farther....for the rest of us non scotish folk we need a handicap depending on how hungry we are when we're looking for it ;-)

While searching for the elusive haggis... I came upon this new site.

The new Liberal info web site is up and it's off to a lame start. The main feature is some weak objection to Harper's intent to reduce the GST from 7% to a much friendlier 5% that all businesses and consumers alike will gladly embrace.

If this is the major item in the Liebral fear propaganda campaign of the ominous Harper agenda, then, clearly, The Liberal party is up the creek without a paddle.

The launch of the Liberano website, although well designed, is clearly a bust and shows a political party on it's way down hill.

We voters were expecting to see some honest evidence of the stealthy and ominous CPC agenda, as is so steadily advertised by the CBC and the MSM, yet their best, launch the campaign effort, only produced a mention of Harper's intent to lower the GST. Liberal site

I guess this is the green light for all those who worried about a hidden CPC agenda to go ahead and vote for Harper.

If there had been any such agenda, the Liebrals would most certainly have launched their new website announcing it to the world. TG

Haggis is also great for plugging holes in drywall and steel belted radials as it is waterproof and weatherproof....

Them Scotch are sure an interestin' folk. The men wear skirts and everyone eats sheep innards. I'd a thunk those guys was from San Fran if I dinna know they wuz Scotch.

They do, however, make pretty good single malt scotch. I'll have to sample them all... when I get richer, of course. For now, it's Paarl Tawny Port for the Sentinel.

Just hold yer nose and think of Scots like William Wallace when you down a haggis Sentinel..... the Scots may not eat very well but they survive and thrive in hostile environments that would make lesser cultures extinct....that's why they were instrumental in opening up Canada's economics and charting and taming it's wilderness...don't forget guys like; Sir John A MacDonald, WL Mackenzie, Sam Hearn, David Thompson, Simon Frasier, Alex Mackenzie and the millions of highland Scots that followed John Gault to homestead wilderness.....if chewing haggis did that, I want all I can get. ;-)
