Greetings, just wanted to say what a lovely site this is! So much information, no nonsense, and a great layout! Many Blessings of Isis be with you!

You never fail to keep me up to date of the forthcoming sabbats! And on top of all the little remimders, there is always a boat load of info just to remind me of why I need to remember such ancient traditions! As a nurse, nights are my domain, which means days merge very swiftly into other days, leaving me clueless as to where I am! Thanks to you, I now put little reminders around after reading my e-mail. Thank you xXx
