Proverbs of the Moment
Gaelic Proverbs come primarily from the western Highlands and Islands of Scotland, and they have a distinctly rural or agricultural flavor which reflects
the society from which they were gathered. It is to be expected that many of them pertain to the weather, to the planting of crops, and to country life
in general. Others reflect the Gaelic love of company and hospitality, fear of poverty and laziness.
An am an éigin dearbhar na càirdean.
In time of need, friends will be tested.
Few countries have a greater number of proverbs than has Scotland. Even today, everyday speech in Scotland is
sprinkled with them. Scots are wonderfully given to this way of speaking, and the lovely Scots tongue loses much
of its flavor when forced to translate their unqiue language. Those that appear in English have been preserved
that way for at least 200 years!
Frae saving comes having.

Link of the Moment
Hello to all!
We are going into our 10th year of running messageboard and mailing lists about Scottish history and culture and would like to take this opportunity to invite anyone who is interested in Scottish, Celtic and medieval history and culture (serious discussion ranging from beginner to advanced) to join us - for free - at our fully interactive forums.
I'm a medieval historian and writer, and we have other talented writers and contributers on these forums. We welcome all who are interested in learning more about Scotland, Ireland, Wales, ancient Celts and even England (!) with some Viking medieval history thrown in for balance. We are looking for members who won't just lurk but who will participate. Ask questions; get involved in history and culture discussions or just use the general forums for great and friendly chat. We are a nice group, never allowing flaming or irritating people. Almost like a friends and family atmosphere, not an academic one.
So, if you are a history buff, or just enjoy reading and talking about Scotland, Celtic history and related topics, please accept this invitation to join us. To do this, just use the link below, register at the board (using the link at the top right), log in and join us in all the history and culture of our great heritage.
Hope to read you there. :)

The Celtic Zodiac
The Ivy, 9/30 - 10/27
Read more about your Celtic Zodiac sign!
The power of the Ivy lies in its ability to cling and bind, making it a potent symbol of determination and strength to the Druids. Ivy has been known to strangle trees and was once a portent of death and spiritual growth. Being evergreen in nature, the Ivy represented the perennial aspects of the human psyche. The Celts associated Ivy with their Lunar Goddess, Arianrhod, and their ritual to this deity marked the opening of the portal to the OtherWorld...or the Dark Side of the Moon. This door symbolized an entrance to the Realm of Faery and thus, the Ivy was representative of the mysterious and the mystical. Ivy was once carried by women for good luck and used to aid in fertility. When used correctly, it was said to heal headaches, muscle cramps and assist in the art of prophecy. Ivy was symbolic of the journey of the soul and the spiral toward to the self. It encouraged assistance toward others in their search so that they, in turn, might offer assistance. Considered to be powerful indeed by the Celts because of its ability to kill even the mightiest Oak, the Ivy has a tendency to create dense, inpenetrable thickets in the forest. It was regarded to be much more powerful than the Vine and rather sinister in nature.
Ivy can grow, spread and flourish under many conditions...cultivated land and wasteland...light or near darkness...fertile soil or upon rubble and stones. It will push its way through tiny cracks and crevices to reach the light and is strong and difficult to destroy. Since ancient times, the Vine and the Ivy have been regarded as enemies. If the Vine, through........ more
