You know, there are reasons I don't read Pagannation, and a lot of them have to do with the forums on Druidry. Does anyone there know what they're talking about?
Back to work. Gotta call the Vet and re-schedule so I can take a call tonight.

I just glanced over it, and even though I'm no druid, I would have to say that it looks like they got their information from D.J. Conway, and that's about it.
Well I am an ODU Druid...and ehhh some of what i read on your link is just ...plain...buberlescop...yeap. At least to my way of thinking...
One of our memebers is going to be a speaker there though. I don't really get into the happy faery loving tree hugging type folks...
But each to their own I guess...just remember there are many differnt prespectives on Druidry just as there are many different presepctives on Wicca, Christianity, Buddisim...what have you.

In defence of internet learning, though. http://www.religioustolerance.org/druid.htm
That wasn't terrible. I actually sent it off to a family member. it's a bit simplistic, but that's what my family needs is simple. And I don't think it's so glaringly incorrect that it makes me hurt.
hey, i thought nate did an okay job trying to bring some level of sanity to the discourse.

I read through the Druid forums and found them fairly typical of online forums. Even some of the ADF mail lists challenge my patience occasionally. Really regretted that I couldn't get into their auction site without signing up. Would like to see what sorts of stuff I could buy.
"Real Witches Ball 2004"?? If you have to put "Real" in the title of your event then you are obviously working too hard to attract people.
When AJ Drew first began holding his Witches Ball in Columbus, he was competing against Shadow of Shadow Realm, who had already been putting on a Witches Ball in the city. Given AJ's need to dis folks who come before him, he added "Real" to the title of his soirée in order to imply that his was the only one worth attending. Although Shadow Realm went out of business several years ago, I still don't find that to be the case. My 2 pfennig.
I thought that it just meant "Real Witches" Ball, ie, as opposed to Wicked Witch of the West/Witchipoo type witches. A ball of real, not fictional, witches. At least that's how it was explained to me.
No difference, really. It implies that those who attended the other Witches Ball weren't "real witches." You'd have to understand the depth of antagonism that developed between AJ and Shadow to appreciate the history there.
ain't that the truth.
although, to be fair, aj did have a store before shadow, i think...it was just in obetz :/
Actually, I believe that Shadow's store on Brighton Road pre-dated AJ's Obetz store by a year or two. But no one can say there weren't bad blood betwixt those boys, regardless.
you are prolly correct ;) on the bad blood too. it seems that regardless of how long either had/have been in business it doesn't seem to have increased their maturity.
