Be Decisive



I saw this today and I chuckled to myself. I was remembering all the lodge meeting that no one could or would make a decision on the simplist of things. Like should we serve Orange juice at the next pancake breakfast, Or should we have Chicken or Beef Stew at the next Third Degree.

Im putting this on a card to keep in my wallet and read at the next lodge meeting.

The First Three of the Thirty Three Degrees of the Ancient and Accepted ...




You may know that I am an active member of both the Scottish and the York Rites. I also study both hours most days.  Above you will find a video on the First Three Degrees of the Scottish Rite.I think that it does an excellent job explaining the system and how it came to us.

It is written by Michael R. Poll.he is a very respected Masonic Scholar in my eyes and many others.
Michael is a Fellow  and Past President of the Masonic Society and many other Masonic Research organizations. He is the Editor and Owner of Cornerstone books, and lives in New Orleans LA.

I encourage you to take the time to watch the video,and you will have a much clearer picture of how it all comes together.

The Knife and Fork Degree


                                                                    Author Unknown

The Knife & Fork Degree

 I do not attend the meetings,

 For I've not the time to spare,

 But every time they have a feast,

You will surely find me there.

 I cannot help with the degrees,

 For I do not know the work,

 But I can applaud the speakers,

 And handle a knife and fork
.
 I'm so rusty in the ritual,

 That it seems like Greek to me,

 But practice has made me perfect,

 In the Knife and Fork degree.


I do say in fun and jest. For I do enjoy a good meal at lodge and I do cook a few of those means as well. But I do the work after.
