mikelheron20 When I graduated in 1973 I shook the hand of the Vice Chancellor - a well known Freemason. I wasn't a Mason but for the hell of it I gave him a Masonic handshake. The look on his face was priceless. They still believe their silly rituals are secret despite the existence of hundreds of books and television documentaries revealing their childish secrets.

Speaking as a lapsed Freemason, (Third degree master mason and senior warden when nobody else could remember the words, it is all a bit silly.)

It's mostly to do with raising money for charity, no bad thing, and, if you're of a spiritual persuasion Masons are encouraged to view the "craft" as an enhancement to their existing faith, which all Masons are required to have.

The "secret" handshakes, grasps etc. etc. have been common knowledge for ages, as have the ceremonies, rituals and all the rest of it.

I joined up to meet my father at the lodge once a month, as he lived a hundred miles away and it was a chance to have a few beers, a good meal and meet up with a few decent chaps.

It's about as sinister as the cub scouts, probably as sinister as the Beavers, (who thought of that?)

Well, sure. The Freemasons have a lot to offer, but there might be negative things, too.

A friend [He has no friends. – Ed.] recommended the old series Golden Boy for its intentionally over-the-top humor.

I watch it for the plot.

This is plot.

So much tight . . . plot.

I felt empowered because I was told I was doing this to protect the Emperor of Japan.

What I didn't know at that time was that the Emperor of Japan had no plans to protect me.

It's always refreshing to see Bono from U2 pontificate about world poverty, global "fair trade" and eliminating international debt. Sometimes these celebrities "say and not do" in such matters. Not Bono. He recently personally re-distributed wealth by charging $200 for punters to listen to shit songs in Mumbai.

Margaret Emily Noel “Peggy” Fortnum was born on this day, December 23, in 1919.

Before she illustrated Paddington Bear, she served in the British Army. On fighting Nazis, she said:

“I did not want to find myself on the inside being defended; but outside, helping to defend.”
