* "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.

The season is about to change again, so it's time for a new installment of the To-Do List thread.

If you've done this before, you know what to do next. The season for this thread will run from March 20th until June 20th.  As always, lists may be posted prior to the start of the season, but updates should not begin until the first day of the season.

If you're new to these threads, here's how to join the fun:  
  • Post your list of goals to be accomplished during the season. These can be goals of any sort- large or small.  There's no minimum or maximum number of goals required. These can be subdivided any way you like - dividing by topic and month are both popular methods.  
  • When posting, please either number your list or post a running total of the number of goals made and completed.  This makes tracking group stats much easier.
  • Let everyone know how things are coming along by periodically posting updates and progress reports on this thread. Most participants typically update on a weekly basis... or as they remember! I'll try to give stats updates for the group every week or two (number of participants, total number of goals completed, etc).
  • The fun ends on the last day of the season. I'll give everyone a couple of days to do their final updates and then post one last set of stats for the group.
  • Toward the end of the season, look for the link to the coming season's thread.

 

1. Start and Maintain my new garden
2. Read atleast one book on green witchery
3. Take part in atleast one full moon ritual
4. Start running. :eek: A healthy body is a happy one.
5. Continue learning about one new herb each week.
If we all lived a little greener, Then perhaps our children\'s children will live a little longer.

I haven't done this in a while (and I hesitate to do it for spring, since May is my busiest month every year)...but here goes...

1. Finish writing the first draft of my current myth in progress

That's it: my one and only goal. Now I'm committed.
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

Welcome back!  I wish I could narrow my list down to one goal.  I have a feeling that if I did, I'd end up sounding like Mel and making it "Don't kill anyone".  Actually, considering how the year has gone so far, that might not be a bad goal to consider.

Well, my world has been thrown into unexpected chaos, so I'm doing a major revamp to this list.  My landlord has unexpectedly put the condo I rent up for sale, so it looks like a) I'm moving and b) as a result of potential moving expenses, my plan to go to Norway is delayed indefinitely.
:grr:
  • Get the gardens whipped into shape.  Changed to: Decide which plants are moving and which are staying behind.
  • Continue writing weekly posts for the Pagan Blog Project. -WIP.  This one I'm keeping, although I need to post yesterday's G-word.
  • Put away additional money for vacation move.
  • Learn basic Norwegian phrases and vocabulary. Changed to: Get all of the non-essentials packed.
  • Hit monthly goals for Wellness Incentive. - WIP.
  • Start brainstorming for NaNoWriMo 2012.   - How about a horror story about someone who values their privacy and personal spaces suddenly having their home invaded by obnoxious real estate agents?
  • Photograph the new pieces and get them posted to Etsy. Changed to: Start looking for a new place to live.
  • Go through entire wardrobe and donate things that don't fit. - Done!
  • Do spring cleaning/cleansing. Changed to: Lay down some heavy duty wards/spells/charms to keep away any nastiness that potential buyers/realtors might drag into the condo with them.  
  • Schedule my annual physical.
  • New goal: Check out local UU church. - I'm not particularly interested in it for myself, but this latest upheaval has proven that the parent who lives with me really needs to put down some better roots in the community.  Joining the UU church has been the only option so far that she's shown an interest in, so it's off to church I go.  
Total Goals: 11
Completed Goals: 1

and did I mention...

Aw, thanks.  I was just a bit frustrated because we'd just been told over the winter that they weren't planning to put it on the market for at least two years.

Craptastic.

Oh yeah, it's definitely that.  I've already been out on a Sunday drive to check out various rentals and may have a lead on townhouse.  *fingers crossed*
