Many thanks again, Mac! I lived in Tucson for many years. Love it there. Now live in a small town between Phoenix and Tucson. Love it here!

Yes, Garden of Eden. East River St. Mary's is maybe a ten minute walk from my parents farm. That sure as hell is my neck of the wood. If I had a picture of the farm, you'd probably recognize it. laugh.gif Mind you, it's on one of the only straight stretches on the 347, and most people fly by at top speed taking advantage of it. (lost too many dogs to that road sad.gif )

Important is right. PEI is the birthplace of Confederation. It's where Canada as we know it was born. (Charlottetown to be precise)

That's so cool that the two of you are from the same area, yet live so far apart now, yet have been introduced here on the forum. Just way cool. smile.gif

btw, welcome to the forum, Rory. I like your name. Rory is not a very common name.

Thanks, Brian. It is really neat to meet up with Raven here. But one thing I've noticed over the years is theat there are Atlantic Canadians everywhere I go! People must be the biggest export from that region - in addition to fish, apples, and potatoes! Rory is actually my nickname, it means one with the red hair, which is what I have. But there are a fair number of Rory's in Cape Breton, NS.

Raven, where did you say you are living now?

I'm in Edmonton now, (my cousin from Goshen actually lives in Yellowknife). And I know what you mean. I stopped being surprised to hear someone is from the Maritimes, NS in particular. Just go to a Jimmy Flynn show or the Atlantic Trap n Gill here in Edmonton, and you'll notice just how many of us are around. My brother and I saw Flynn once here in Etown with our boss and a few fellows from work. They were the only Albertans there, and every time Jimmy cracked a joke, they'd laugh along, then look at us for translation. laugh.gif

And you're right about the exports. Did you know that despite the steady number of new births in NS every year, the population is declining? All heading west.

I know of a few Rory's, and the one I graduated with had red hair.

Do you ever make the trip into Etown? If so, give me a holler first, and I'll fire up the BBQ. beer_mug.gif king.gif thumbs_up.gif

Raven, I was down last November for a teacher's conference. I have no plans to come down anytime soon, however, if things change I'd love to come for a visit. Thanks for the offer!

Hey, Lucinda! Great to hear from you! OldRaven and I are also in the West now, but we are hardcore Bluenosers, first and foremost. We are trying to spread a little light into the darkness of the west! laugh.gif

As for your Scottish community, any efforts to raise awareness of Gaelic and the contributions of Highland Scots to the making of our nation are very important. It is sad to think that most of the descendents of Highlands Scots don't even know that their ancestors came here speaking a different language! That is the problem with how Scottish culture is celebrated in this day and age. We celebrate kilts and tartans, but do little to understand the true ways of life that our forebears lived. The kilted Scots are a modern invention and the more you study, you'll find very few Highland immigrants waded ashore in Canada wearing kilts, sgian dubh, etc. (I won't get into the history of the kilt, but it is a long one in some respects, and a short one when it comes to the modern kilt and people's fascination with it.) However, they were almost all Gaelic speakers and practioners of a culture that was closely intertwinned with the language and the values that came with it.

Anyway, nice to see you on hear and all the best with your endeavours.

Hi everyone,

Last year I moved out to PEI for two week to go to university. While I was there I fell in love with the island. I plan to go back very soon. My dad lived in Cape Breton for five years. I love going to Nova Scotia when I can to visit. The games, food and atmosphere down there is just amazing.

Hey there White Goddess. smile.gif The wife and I head down to Calgary about twice a year. We used to go visit her brother there, until he moved to Toronto with his gf so she could go to school there. But just next month my cousin is getting married there.

But I won't be in the west much longer. smile.gif After our first is born this may, we're packing up and heading home. We came here to pay off our student loans and get established. Now that we're square again, we're going to make a go of it back east.

Even though I live in the USA and I'm a proud American, I'm also very proud of my Nova Scotia heritage. My Greatx4 Grandfather was a loyalist settler there and my family still has a summer cottage on a plot of that original land an my Great Grandfather was from Guys Borough and his family was part of clan Gordon. Nova Scotia is probably the MOST BEAUTIFUL place on the face of the earth.
