* "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.

Meet the Mediums of Lily Dale

A hamlet in western NY is home to a community of Spiritualists

The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

Meet the Mediums of Lily Dale

For people who want more, there's a great book by Christine Wicker from 2003, called Lily Dale: The True Story of the Town that Talks to the Dead. Tons more detail, and it's a fascinating place.

YAAAASSS! Finally seeing some press about Lily Dale!! (Background: I'm from Buffalo NY and they would come to the different conferences and exhibitions that occurred in the area).

I know they're not everyone's cuppa, but in an area that really doesn't have much in terms of Pagan-related stuff... They definitely helped fill in that void.
