information from Ohio State University, including pictures of
old longwall coal-mining machinery, circa 1900.

family of our faith.
- Wild Rose Outer Grove's web-space and library.

on being a priestess in
the wilds of Alberta, where the Wicca are few and the wolves are many.

Links from my own scrapbook:

who has certainly worked hard for that title.
- Lady Bhride's trenchant advice for seekers, worth reading by all who are searching the Web for coven contacts.

- A vast collection of Pagan and Craft essays by Mike Nichols, a Midwestern Witch who was initiated in 1970 and has, as the saying goes, "seen it all."
