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.

Girl receives thank-you gifts from crows

It's a really cute picture album. It began when the little girl would drop her food and the crows would follow her around to eat the crumbs. Now she feeds them regularly and in return the crows leave behind beads, buttons,  earrings, etc on their feeding tray for her.

D'awww!!! Also, I am enchanted by the crows' clear sense of 'a gift for a gift'.

I saw this! I think it's pretty awesome and a testament to the intelligence of crows. Unfortunately, I believe her neighbors filed a lawsuit with the parents over the damage the crows caused to their property.

That's unfortunate. Hopefully they can come to a compromise.

Crows rule. Or they would, if they had opposable thumbs.
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
