Hi New to the board.
Fri, 10-07-2011 - 8:26pm

My name is Mary (MysticFire). I just started posting and I follow a Celtic Wiccan Path.

Live in Omaha Nebraska.

I am 49 and have 2 boys (27 and 21), 2 girls (25 and 19) and 3 grandchildren (2 girls ages 5 & 1 1/2, 1 boy age 3).

I have one fur baby. She is a Shiba Inu named Misty I got her as a rescue 4 years ago. She was abused very badly but I feel I have helped make that up to her with lots of TLC and good training. She is my spoiled baby now. I am also looking to find a young cat but that will take some time.

Merry Meet,

Welcome, Mary! :) I am Gypsy. I am 64, married for 33 years, and DH & I have one grown daughter. We have one deaf from birth dog (pix in my siggy), Mika, who is Aussie Shepherd mixed with Border Collie and possible Great Pyrenees as she is bigger than typical Aussie Shepherds or Border Collies. Her behavior is mostly Aussie Shepherd. I couldn't face my days without her! She's a shelter rescue; although I'm still not sure just who rescued whom... :P I have been Wiccan for many years, and at present, am reconnecting Zen with my path. :)

Hi, Mary, and welcome to the board! My name is Nancy, I'm 50 and live in South Carolina. I've been a practicing Pagan for the past 30 years. I'm a Druid.

I have four cats who were all rescues: Billy, Blackie, Siren and Oscar. I work in an emergency veterinary clinic, so I'm surrounded by critters there as well.

I hope that you'll find a home here. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better!

Thanks for posting about yourself. I am Caly and the CL here at the board. I am 51 and live in TN with my Partner of 7 years and her 2 DDs ages 14 and 10. I also have a son 20, who lives in VT with my XH. We have a mini daschund name Pippin, who is a real character and king of the house. He makes us laugh so much. He will be 4 this month.

I am a Taoist, though over the years I have looked at all types of Paganism, and have always been drawn to the Native American belief system as well. I study the teachings of Lao Tzu, practice Tai Chi Chuan, and recently have added Qigong to my life.

Look forward to having you at the board and gettingto know you better. Please feel free to post and questions you have or ideas and topics for discussion. We talk about most anything here. 8-)
