"I am a Canadian by birth, but I am a Highlander by blood and feel under an obligation to do all I can for the sake of the Highlanders and their literature.... I have never yet spoken a word of English to any of my children. They can speak as much English as they like to others, but when they talk to me they have to talk in Gaelic."
-Alexander Maclean Sinclair of Goshen (protector of Gaelic Culture)
Here in MN we get a lot of snow and it stays. It is almost like having 3 months of summer and 9 of winter. This year, however, has been really nice. I love fall and the colors are gorgeous here. I hope we don't have snow this Halloween like we have before. I doubt it, but anything is possible. I predict nice cool autumn weather. At least that's what I pray for....
"I hope that was a petting zoo." "First rule of combat...shoot them before they shoot you." "I can feel it...there's something evil here. Something's not right." "That's because you're standing next to the portal to Hell."
