You need to get more protein.

I recommend a diet high in infants.


You, my friend, are absolutely right.
I shall start immediately.
No more noodle arms!

You'll find libraries like that all over the World. The lodge I was raised in had an amazing library originally built in 1929 and has been collecting ever since. Every once in a while a Mason would die and leave all his books to the library so it was always expanding. The only downside is that it was very underused and so very under funded.. because of that there was no environmental controls and some of the oldest books written in the 1800's deteriorated. They also had the original furniture from sometime around 1910 .. most uncomfortable couch I've ever sat on.


So if you ever get the chance to see the libraries of other great lodges that may not be as well funded as the one you visited remember to drop a few bucks for a donation. contrary to what many believe, most Lodges are poor .. even the huge neoclassical masterpieces.


Thanks for telling me, I didn't know that!
I will definitely leave a donation next time.

Oh no, not the infants again!!!!


You do realise the stir this caused last time.....


Seriously, if you could please ask them if you could take photos to post for us a world away and never likely to see inside the library. I would be suitably impressed and awed, promise.


Lastly, congrats for being at home with the deity you choose to believe, and not allowing popular opinion to sway you. Such a thing is rare in this world.

Im a Christian and a mason, but I've got to tell you that its a breath of fresh air when someone is as comfortable as you are in their beliefs, knowing that people are going to try and ridcule you. I wasnt a mason when i went to London years ago, but being a brother now, i want to go back and see it. So if you do get some pictures, please post them.

Lots and lots of beer!


Ah, infants and beer, a connoisseur.


That sounds like a proper Masonic festive board
