    Investigation Committee

    I still find it surprising & disappointing as to how many still don't perform very good background investigations on petitioners. Even having tools on the internet @ our disposal, many still don't know how to use these free tools. I believe until this is fixed (or learned), our guarding of the...

    Investigation Committee

    Curious to know if there are some here who may have documents or presentations willing to share on methods of how they perform investigations.... ie.. tools used like Google, myspace, facebook, etc..

    Does GLoT allow Wiccans to become TX masons?

    I read much on this topic, but never a clear answer. If the answer is NO, & a lodge still permits it to happen what are the consequences for that lodge? Seems to be a hot topic in some areas & yet isn't CLEARLY mandated by GLoT.

    Investigation Committee

    Being charged but not convicted of a felony is 2 completly different things. However, even that depends on the Lodge being solicited as some still go by "local" rules of preference.

    Fundrasing ideas?

    How about a Treasure hunt? Get about $100 worth of Sackagewea(i can't spell) gold dollars from the bank. Put them in a box and bury it somewhere. Make a map with a hunch of clues (make it kinda hard) and have people walk around alot for following clues. Make it for a 2 person team & one must be...

    Visitation between A.F.&A.M and F&A.M

    I think some are under misconception that F&AM and AF&AM are Mainstream and PHA which is not the case at all. I was raised in a F&AM(GA) and now reside in Texas under a AF&AM lodge(endowed member). Both are "mainstream or Blue" lodges. I heard that same comment/assumption about a month ago from...

    Well said.... I couldn't agree more. Waaaayyyyyyyyy too much pushing it out there. Personally I have a "peeve" with the word "gay" and it's new meaning. When I was growing up that word had an entirely different meaning. I've never understood why a word had to take on a new meaning when the...

    Although there are opportunities for Masons to enjoy relaxation & enjoyment outside the Masonic craft, I believe Shriners is much more than that. I see that there is more family functions, events, gatherings, etc... The Shrine I belong to constantly reminds us of our Masonic roots & why we...

    Drinking Age

    It was kinda ironic that at 17 I wasn't allowed to drink or vote, yet I was in the military (volunteered) & ready to do whatever it took for my country. Actually I even had to have permission to marry since I was a Texan and I was under 21 yrs old. I still have the document issued by a JP giving...

    Texas is a conservative state & although certain things are recognized (ie... wiccans, homosexuality, etc) doesn't necessarily mean they're accepted and by recognized I mean that it is known that it exists. Even further yet, doesn't mean they (recognized or viewed cultures or lifestyles) are...

    Would u return the sign

    I recall years ago while in the military (Ft Sill, OK) of a black woman coming up to me at a ball game and gving me a MM token. Talk about getting caught off guard.... LOL Of course I said or returned nothing & she proceeded to recite & say things that just threw me for a loop. I had never...

    Master's Hat

    I have a hat that is made by & I'm always getting compliments & asked where I got it. Many say it makes a great WM hat. It's a palm leaf hat, but if you check the web site you'll see it's really pretty neat looking. Mine is the top hat & one that looks like the "Abe Lincoln"...
