Did You Know?

The shillelagh [siúil éille] is an old Gaelic word meaning
“oak club”.

But the shillelagh isn't 'just an Irish walking stick - no, it's much more than that!

Another Gaelic term for the staunch wooden club is ‘bata’ meaning ‘fighting stick'. It was used as defense and for sporting fights when Irish weren't allowed to carry firearms.

So, is that where the term fightin' Irish comes from? ;-) Come to think of it, is that where the word 'bat' comes from?

Every magazine has an editorial 'slant'. At Highway 7 Online, we believe in good old-fashioned values, giving what we can to show off our Eastern Shore to the rest of the world and following the principles of sustainable development. Like the people who live along Nova Scotia's 'real' Hwy#7, we use today's technology to learn from the past, pay attention to the present, and build for the future. Read more...

C.E.D. Community Economic Development
Across Nova Scotia, people are banding together with one goal in mind - to make their communities better places to live and work. They're doing C-E-D: community economic development.
Common Dreams
It's been said that dreams are our roadmaps to the future. If so, where are we headed? Common Dreams offers an eclectic mix of politics, issues and breaking news with an emphasis on progressive perspectives that are increasingly hard to find with our corporate-dominated media.
