* "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.

I need to learn a few things
« on: January 20, 2014, 08:43:27 pm »
I'm a bit of a contradiction in a lot of ways.  And am confused about that.

Have gone to a regular church at times, feel good about what they are doing. But at the same all that was not quite "me".

Part "hippy". Part "red neck".

Firmly believe in peace, beauty, and the best in people. But realize some people, and reality is not always quite that peaceful and idealistic.

I like the change of seasons, like winter, like feeling the sting of the cold of my cheeks while I look up at the clear sky at night.  But can admire a green forest, on a hot steamy  night, maybe with a thunderstorm off in the distance.

A true open minded progressive, nice to anybody who wants to be my friend.  But know how to run a business, know the realities of economics sometimes has to be harsh to keep us all fed and functioning in such a tough world.

Young enough that if you are in your 50's or older I might seem young.  Old enough that if you are in your 50's or younger I might seem old.

Care deeply about nature and the environment but spend enough time outside to know that nature is harsh and traditional "environmentalists" don't always have an accurate view of nature.

Yet I always find myself (and one or two special people) outside in dark, remote, abandoned (by "normal" people) places... admiring all that we know is good.

Anybody else feel like all that?

Anyway, thanks in advance for anything I can learn from all of you!

Im like that.  Usually, and depending on the mood.

You might be interested in panetheism/pantheism, druidry, and hedge witchery...if you want labels. :)

I used those terms to get started reading.  Especially Hedge witchery, will keep me reading and learning for some time.

didn't know where to start, thanks for the nudge in the right direction Merin.
