2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "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 had no idea it was here, but I'm definitely going now! (Assuming I'm not working of course.)

I rarely get to Raleigh and of course, my next trip is scheduled for the weekend following Pagan Pride.  Maybe next year!

One can hope!

This will be the first time I can go on consecutive years. Unfortunately the Little Lady and I can't go on both days but it's great to be able to be there.

Also, not sure why it's there but there was, last weekend, a ski-lift looking thing set up going from the parking lot by the Educational Building all the way over to where the Festival will be. So perhaps they're experimenting with a fun way to convey folks from one side of the property to the other.

Oh,and while I'm thinking of it... Be sure to visit the flea market area too. They have some really awesome stuff both inside and out including a guy who sells lawn ornaments and assorted bric-a-brac; some of it pagan in nature. He's the one I bought my Green Man door hanger from years ago. Inside is a shop with wonderful spices and another with gems and such, plus one with some Amish goods.

Have fun at the Festival everyone!

Ski lift thing may be for the upcoming state fair.  IIRC, that'll be coming up very soon.  

I'm planning a stop at the flea market while I'm in town. It's one of my favorites.

I'm going! I can't wait!
I'm going on the 17th -- already signed up for the blood drive and all that good stuff. My husband is super bummed he's going to miss it this year. But he's sending me with a shopping list. So far, he's requesting 2 bottles of mead.

According to the vendor page, it looks like Starlight Mead will be there.

Looks like they are going to have a ton of cool little shops and booths there this year. The workshops look pretty interesting too.

So unfortunately I have to work all weekend with no chance of getting either day off. :( I suppose there's always next year.

Depending on how things go in the next year I may go as a vendor with a bunch of woodworking stuff for sale. I guess we'll see.

The Little Lady, her mom, and I had a blast today! Lots more vendors and such than in previous years and more people too. Seems my neighbor is not alone in his opinion on my talents with woodworking either so I am very seriously considering investing in some better equipment and practicing so that I can make some seriously awesome stuff.

I might see if I can get a picture of my necklace to post here so everyone can see what I was wearing.

I haven't stumbled aacross anything official as of now.

But... I'm generally a solitary person by nature who hates sharing the road so with rare exception I tend to stick to the house if I don't need to go out.

Though I do understand from your energy request in the other board that you're seeking some like-minded fellows to spend time with.


You have the unfortunate distinction of having resonated with a Path as spectacularly uncommon as my own. I've met exactly three others of similar belief and they are all Asatruar.

My advice, young man, that you didn't ask for; don't look for those who are just like you. Look for those who are different, at least slightly. You'll learn more about yourself and your Path that way.

Now, back to New Year's Eve... I've not one clue what Druids do for celebrations and all that so, please, enlighten me!
