I’ve been thinking it would be really cool to make a list of links to all the Blogs written by Miramichiers whether living here or anywhere else in the world. So, are you a Miramichier who blogs? If so, let me know. I’ll post your URL in our links. I could also include it on the Hello Fer Stuff page in BnM. Wouldn’t that be cool?!

Just a few things to clarify about my earlier post —

New Orleans was just the first place that popped into my head, I don’t know anyone who lives there and I was in no way picking on anyone who has moved there.

And my comments were directed toward our youth and nobody else. Because if you’ve been following the discussion it is our youth who seem to be doing all the complaining without accepting any role in the solution. I’m talking about people in their late teens, 20’s and early 30’s who don’t have kids — people who are pretty much free to do as they please without having to weigh in how their spouses or kids might be effected.

I understand all those people who have moved away and started families not being able to uproot their families and bring them here. My aunt and uncle in Calgary still consider the Miramichi to be home and would probably love nothing better than to move back, but their children and grandchildren are Calgarians, born and raised. I understand when you’ve set down roots someplace else you learn to live with missing the Miramichi, visit as often as you’re able and enjoy your life where your family is. Home is family, afterall.

I just wanted to clear that up. Just in case, you read the post earlier and thought I meant everyone who ever left the Miramichi should pull stakes and come home now. 🙂

I loved the comments earlier, by the way. It’s a great feature! It’s wonderful fun getting instant feedback like that, so keep ’em coming!
