Thanks for the links.  I love following the moon phases. 

I've always wondered where the full moon "names" came from and their significance.  This link (below) is great.  For example, the last November full moon was called Beaver Moon by some and Mourning Moon by others:

You'll get no scorn from any here . For all we know Sasquatch could be territorial and like a bear or cougar that territory could cover hundred of mile . They may only be in certain area do to food supplies . A lot of research has shown that they follow herds of deer , different seasons can bring out berries or mushrooms . River runs of fish are seasonal also .

What the farmer plants could be another food source for them . Several years ago up on the Olympic peninsula a group of women went in search of Sasquatch , they tried different things to attract one . Dancing , sings , laughing etc. The only group that believe one camp into their camp at night was the group that worn no perfume . Make that what you may , scent of perfume could be something that act like and alarm to them . Take a shower with unscented soap and wear no perfume see if you can attract one that way .

Good to hear from you , do hope all is going well with you Aunt Thora , enjoy your upcoming holiday .

Very interesting read ....

     I can't say one way or the other what is true or not.  As I have seen a few things, that when I mention was scorn at for so I jsut keep my mouth shut and listen and watch. 

    We have a farmer who leases the land here and has for many years.  He has told us that he has spotted big foot a couple of times.  He is the type that most people respect in the area.  He has share this with a few others and of course in a small town things get around.  What I find kind of amazing is no one disputes him.  We also had a visitor that claims he had seem big foot as well.  I have lived her for about 8 years now and have gone for many walks and not seen any thing and that is very good by me.  If I do spot one will just wave and go about my way. Unless it is hurt then I will have to stop and do what I can to help.

       Alchymist I too would be very interested in hearing your story about the dragon

Good to hear from you , got two now congrates . How they are and continue to be health . Not all ISP cross borders or some may not be allowed in certain countries . Is there much of a monetary different between what you and what your friend has . Then again it could depend on who owns the ISP . Good to hear from you keep in touch if you can .

Does give one something to think about . Do think this tale is one that is world wide( with local variations ) . My Great- great grandmother told this to me ,, that at one time all things that lived could speak a single language but one humans . Taking pity on the humans a hound taught them how to speak and as punishment for what the hound had done that all of his kind where cursed to forever be at his side and not allowed to range free anymore . The curse can only be lifted when humans teach another species to speak their language .

Then again are there not certain animals that can confuse the minds of those that are sick on unstable . Coyote and Raven do enjoy doing it . Got me to thinking about Berkowitz and how his neighbors dog told him to kill . There was one from I believe upstate New York in the 50's where the mans horse told him to kill his wife .

Just because their cute and cuddly does mean their nice , what about Puss-in Boots ; a bipedal cat with a sword now that's dangerous .

Drac , would you then classify Wyvern as a subspecies of dragons or a different species all together ?. Dose that also cover flying snakes that have no limbs like the Olmec and Mayan feather serpent ?.

Hello  :)

I've been missing this place!  I just wanted to say hi, and ask for a bit of help from admin.  I haven't been able to access the forums from home for a few years, ever since I switched to a new ISP (which is one of the major ISPs in Canada).  I also can't access them from my mobile devices.  I've emailed admin a few times but haven't heard back.  I'm currently at a family member's house (who has a different ISP) and thought I'd check to see if I can log on, and I can!  I'm hoping someone might be able to help me figure out a way to log on from home (any time I try it says that I am banned).  I won't be able to view any responses here, so if you don't mind emailing me at that would be cool.  :) Currently a busy mom of a 3yo and 6mo kids and missing having a venue to talk about spirituality.

I can see Al has given considerable thought to the comparative metaphor of our cartoon characters offered up as therianthropes. Indeed to carry this forward, consider the cartoons where the characters are all humanoid but have a creature as part of their company who can think talk and act with human characteristics and traits, as example we have Scooby Doo. Then there are the half human half feline characters of the Thundercats who have Snarf as their companion creature. It's amusing to consider the comparisons, what was the thinking behind such inclusions?

And with the thought of Gods and their changes as OG illustrates, consider the fable of Leda and the Swan; Zeus turned himself into a swan to seduce Leda (the dude was a bit of a lush with the ladies of course). From her it was said was born Helen and Polydeuces of Greek legend.

To briefly step back a moment; trying to count Dragons is like herding cats. Because of there being so many, it would be difficult to quantify. Take the Chinese for instance or Japanese, they have a Dragon for every occasion (most particularly the elements - guardians perhaps? did they think that way?). Then you have every country and every culture all having their own versions of Dragons. Some with four legs and wings some with two, some that are snake or serpent like and also a very few with no wings at all. Next we can imagine the Dragons of fiction; epitomising what we fear in some cases and what we admire in others. The Dragons of Anne McCaffreys Pern books, they are of different colours which denotes their standing in each weyr; brown, green, blue with ranking Dragons being the colours of precious metals. There was also a white Dragon who was thought to be a runt because of his small stature, but turned out to be really quite a special Dragon after all.

Many believed that Dragons can transform themselves into human form, taking on the characteristics and frailties of humans; These are very beautiful people of course; there are again comparisons to these beliefs as to what Draconic characteristics are retained in human form.

Does give one pause for thought on what some of the older God/dess were , were they animals in human form or humans in animal form or part of each at the same time . Where they , their form or one worn just for us . Does not seem that the forms were to frighten us , and did those forms represent their part in nature or because they were something that early people were familiar with in the areas they lived . Could that be the reason why when one finds peoples worshiping the same God/dess in different areas they appear somewhat different for what they are like in areas that may not have the same type of animal living there or they could be different as in size or length of hair and colour ?.

An what about colour , does it play an important role . Those of you who no about the Native Americans know that white coloured animals are ones of great power . We have the White Buffalo , the White Deer , and the White Wolf . On the east coast if ones see a white squirrel it means a good harvest . A white deer can lead you safely home , a white wolf will aide you in times of danger . What of the other colours , a blood wolf ( red coloured ) means you will come to great harm , you should never follow a red bird in the woods . A red(ish) bears is a warning of great danger in pain in the near future etc..
