    That really is the route of least hassle...:(......all things considered.

    I wonder if i could glow paint the dogs face and teeth. He always jumps at the door window when someone knocks. Maybe add some terrible screams coming out of a window through a speaker?

    I find the door to the spirit cabinet becomes thinner at this time of year :rolleyes: Can't beat a nice warming dram when it's cold and dark out.

    If anyone fancies a good Samhain film try 'Song of the sea'. One of the best animations you'll ever see and full of celtic legends.

    Ooo thankyou. [Ive just read The Sea Kingdoms by Alistair Moffat, which is a good laymans book]

    And also, on the theme, someone might like this online comic, Slaine the horned god. Celtic myths and legends.

    [Now has anyone REALLY seen a ghost? Enquiring minds.....]
