I actually grew up in Guysborough Co., and heck, I'm still a loyalist. tongue.gif

As for the move home, that has been postponed until next March. sad.gif Yes, I am quite upset about it. But what can you do?

I've been across most of Canada three times already by train, plane and automobile...and am currently residing in Vancouver. I was born in Ottawa and from there moved on to Chiliwack and Vedder's Crossing B.C.at the tender age of two, then off to the island in Victoria for a breather, stayed there for 7yrs. Happy times! Then more moving back and forth...I have family on both coasts. While I don't have many memories of the east coast, I'm still young and plan to visit soon.

Can't say I argue with you on that. wink.gif But why should I?

Well, we're moving at the end of the month. unsure.gif There is still a lot to be done, though. Ange and Coira will be heading home March 30th, and I'll be bringing up the rear at the end of April. I'm doing the honourable thing, and staying to keep the engineering dept. running while the other guy I work with (yes, just the two of us) is off to Thailand with his wife for three weeks. I could have taken off with the girls, but I couldn't in good conscience do that to the guy. Destroy a holiday he's been planning for years. It'll be hard, but the reunion a month later will be all that much more sweet. I just hope Coira waits for me before starting to walk.

Last year was the first year in the last ten that I didn't have a stand set up at Maxville (Glengarry Highland Games). I used to also set up at the Fergus Highland Games and the Montreal Highland Games to name a few. We're taking a hiatus from the games for a few years while I do some designing and hope to take the show on the road to a couple of the larger U.S. festivals.

...noone can argue about the beauty of the maritimes (ex-Haligonian here). I still can't get used to being land-locked here in Ontario.

I heard it was beautiful country up there! I can only hope to go to Canada one day as I so want to go so badly. With this current heat in Arizona, I could only hope to stay up there for eternity! wink.gif

Actually Canada is beautiful! I was there for 4th of July week and the temperature was lovely and the weather wonderful! I even had a custom guard let me bring in a case of canadian beer when I didn't merit the time requirement.

Beginning Dec 31, 2007 you must have a passport to go into Canada. I already have one so there was no problemo there but the beer is quiet nice.

I did stop at the duty free store which was a rip off! You can get the same prices here in the U S as the duty free store offers things....so don't bother stoping.

Well my sister-in-law is a natural red head and is full blooded Arab! Not a Muslim, she's a youth pastor actully but it just comes to show, you never know. I've crossed the border many times and it's rare they are rude but everyone has a bad day I guess and they take it out on others.

I get that feeling when I'm there as well. I've deep roots there but I have a problem with Canadian laws and their healthcare, although it's free and it does help, I know too many people who have suffered rathered then benefit from socialized medicine. Also I'm a Gun advocate and a conceled weapons holder and I personally think Canadas gun laws SUCK! I shoot with a Canadian down here in Florida. I got him into shooting and even he agrees. He took advantage of the right to carry permit. Other then that if it stayed summer there year around, I definatly find it hard not to live there. I think Nova Scotia is a touch of Heaven.

About three weeks ago, I had the pleasure of having two eastern Canadian friends come to Arizona to visit me. I can't tell you how delightful, polite, gracious and wonderful gals they were. I hope to get to Canada one day myself. Every Canadian I have ever met....and I have met many......appear to be really wonderful people. I know that things are very strict crossing the border right now........and you know what? I am very thankful in this day and age. wish we had more strict controls over our borders in Mexico! unsure.gif

Ciamar a Tha Thu?

Im not sure if this is the thread to post an intro...and Ive actually been signed up here for a while now.
But here it is.

Hi all, My name is Eric, and Ive lived all my life in B.C so far.
My origins are Scot...found that out like 3 years ago.
I love going to festivals, Its gotta be the highlight of my summers.
Ive played music for a long time now..10+ years and have written a number of songs.
btw...I play guitar, cello, bass and piano + I can sing a bit too.

A friend of mine asked me to record some stuff, not like high production, for sale or anything. Just something of a memoir, so people can hear it later.

I've been plugging away at learning Gaelic for a little while now, not spending that much time with it...time constraints you know?

Well thats a little on me then.
