* "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.

It's That Time of Year Again
« on: February 14, 2014, 11:44:03 am »
Happy bad candy and obligatory cuddles day, everyone!
(For those of you who may be across the date line, happy late bad candy and obligatory cuddles day).

Got any cheesy Valentine's Day sayings? Weird stories? Complaints about the holiday, or suggestions for improvement?

I complain that it's not also called "Happy forever alone day", by those with nobody to celebrate with. (That's pretty much a joke between me and my friends, because I've never had anybody on valentines day.)

Tomorrow is the real holiday, 'cause the chocolate goes half price. :p

My mother insists on a  2lb box of Chocolate, then puts it in the refigarator and does not open it until after Lent.  She does not eat Chocloate or Candy during Lent, but will eat  Cake, Pie and Pudding during Lent.

Willpower?  It drives me crazy.  Chocolate is the only food group, how can she go 40 days and nights without it.

She eats at lease one Almond Joy, Monuds, Baby Ruth, or Hersery bar anyother day of the year.

One of my grandmas died on Feb 14 and another on Feb 15.  It has been a long time now, but I just can't associate Valentine's Day with anything else.

I also hate getting sympathy for being single.  I actually really enjoy being single.  If I find a guy I want to date, great.  But until then...there's really no need to feel sorry for me!  I like being independent and doing most whatever I want on a whim.

I am treating myself to some dark chocolate and red wine tonight, though.  Any excuse will do for that! :)

Growing up, my parents would always give us a sweet little something on Valentine's - usually a toy, probably under $5 at the time, but it was one of three days a year we got anything so it was always wonderful :).

Once I moved out and was single, my dad started sending me flowers.  So Valentine's has always been, to me, a day to feel and give love and appreciation, not necessarily romantic.  Now that I'm married with little ones, it's one of the few days a year my husband and I set aside to spend 'just us'.  Honestly, it's nice to have the day, because it's not the kind of thing we'd ever plan otherwise.  Last night we ate baby baked potatoes and watched House of Cards, so it's not fancy or commercial for us - just a reminder to spend some time together.

Well, I do not hate that day,

Anyway - I thought   from the title the subject was Christmas approaching.

But in 2015 there will be a Valentine's Day again - and it will be topical then again.
