    Re: Blackberry jam YUM!

    Tried out the "jam" this morning! I didn't wait the full week, but stuck a jar in the fridge. It's pretty dang thin, more like syrup. Oh well, it was GREAT on homemade scones with cream cheese!

  14. Re: Basic occult/pagan belief questions from an atheist.

    Ok, I get it now. By the way, I'm an atheist and was raised as one. It's not hard for me to conceive of worshiping a deity. The vast majority of the people in the US do so. Sure, it's totally foreign...
