* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Yep. Went to the grocery store and Michaels and they already have all of the Christmas stuff out.


My neighborhood Lucky's grocery put the Christmas stuff out on 1st November.

I actually prefer the depressing ones.  They're more realistic, imo.

Though I draw the line at "Christmas Shoes" because it's less "depressing" and more "manipulative and an underlying message that subverts the intended one."

 
That is the song I was thinking of when I said "depressing", though manipulative is a better term. (Brainfog is killing my vocab.)

So like it or not, it's that time of year again where you can't walk into even a convenience store without being assaulted by numerous versions of "Jingle Bells."

There's a guy on the other end of the subway platform playing the polka version on his accordion right now. November 8! No change for you!

Um, Finn? I hate to break it to you, but Wal-Mart (or was it K-Mart?) started running Christmas lay-away ads before the end of August. *shudders*

ok, these two things make sense.
Layaway ads should be out by the end of august, otherwise one wouldn't have time to pay it off, and craft stores should have christmas is june, otherwise you wouldn't have a chance to finish the project.

Very few other people have an excuse.

Like the Hallmark channel already running 24/7 Xmas movies? Again, not my choice of viewing; sadly, the maternal roomie has the remote.

*crosses fingers*  Please please tell me this is possible. I cannot stomach that channel and get subjected to it at least once a week.
