On The Level
Thought of the day
The OREO Templar Conspiracy..
We all chuckle at Templar conspiracy theories but I thought I would share this one with you .
The next time you eat an Oreo biscuit you will remember the Knight Templar
The Edible Geography website explores the secret symbolism of the iconic Oreo biscuit / cookie .
You can't have a conspiracy without Templars lurking nearby
As it turns out, online Oreo-obsessives have spent as much time decoding the design as they have speculating on the identity of the designer.
The circle topped with a two-bar cross in which the word “OREO” resides is a variant of the Nabisco logo, and is either “an early European symbol for quality” (according to Nabisco’s promotional materials) or a Cross of Lorraine, as carried by the Knights Templar into the Crusades.
Continuing the Da Vinci Code-theme, the Oreo’s geometric pattern of a dot with four triangles radiating outward is either a schematic drawing of a four-leaf clover or cue the cliffhanger music from Jaws the cross pattée, also associated with the Knights Templar, as well as with the German military and today’s Freemasons.
No wonder the Oreo has become the most powerful cookie in the world, with more than 491 billion sold to date.
See, the black and white Oreo manifestly represents the beauceant, the battle flag of the Templars.
So it's clearly a Templar cross in the center. Clearly. ( LOL )
And the "Or" in Oreo is the French word for gold.
As in Templar treasure.
All hiding in plain sight.
Our Installation of officers is tonight, we eat at 6. install at 7. Open install if you want to bring the fam

"Masonry is an ordainer of kings. Its hand has shaped the destinies of worlds, and the perfect fruitage of its molding is an honest man." -Manly P. Hall, 33rd Degree
So who has been watching Sleepy Hollow, on fox?
When I heard that it had a huge Masonic Plot I was worried about how we would be viewed in the show. But We are "the Good Guys"
Let's hope the distortions are kept to a minimum. It's so easy for creative people to take a little more poetic license than necessary when creating an engaging story. I hope we don't get any undeserved labels out of it.
Brethren, don't forget this coming Monday the 11th @ 7PM sharp is our annual stated meeting. Great opportunity to reconnect with friends and, of course, VOTE!!!

nice to see us reclaiming Temples
Toronto’s storied Masonic Temple is better known as a live-music venue than for its initial purpose — a meeting place for the Masons, an ancient and semi-secret sect. But nearly 20 years after they moved their elaborate rites and rituals to other meeting halls, Toronto-area Masons want to find a way...
King Arthur was attending a Lodge meeting with his Knights at another Castle within his realm and on this particular night Queen Guinevere insisted he be home before midnight or else she would raise the drawbridge and he would have to spend the evening with one of the serfs.
The meeting finished late and King Arthur was hurtling towards Camelot and the time was fast aproaching midnight when he was in sight of the drawbridge which was slowly rising.
Unable to make such a huge leap with his trusty steed he uttered the words as he dived into the watery mess, "Ah! So mote (moat) it be"

Phoenixmasonry Masonic Museum and Library - USA
The Square is one of the most important and significant symbols in Freemasonry. As such, it is proper that its true form should be preserved. French Freemasons have almost universally given it with one leg longer than the other (like the one pictured above) thus making it a carpenter's square. American Freemasons, following the incorrect delineations of Brother Jeremy L. Cross, have, while generally preserving the equality of length in the legs, unnecessarily marked its surface with inches; thus making it an instrument for measuring length and breadth, which it is not. It is simply the trying square of a stone-mason, and has a plain surface; the sides or legs embracing an angle of ninety degrees, and is intended only to test the accuracy of the sides of a stone, and to see that its edges subtend the same angle. In Freemasonry, the square is a symbol of morality. This is its general signification, and applied in various ways: 1. It presents itself to the neophyte as one of the Three Great Lights. 2. To the Fellow Craft as one of his Working-tools. 3. To the Master Mason as the official emblem of the Master of the Lodge. Everywhere, however, it inculcates the same lesson of morality, of truthfulness, of honesty. So universally accepted is this symbolism, that it has gone outside of the Order, and has been found in colloquial language communicating the same idea. The Square, says Halliwell, Dictionary of Archaic and Provincial Words, means honest, equitable, as in "square dealing." To play upon the square is proverbial for to play honestly. In this sense the word is found in the old writers. As a Masonic symbol, it is of very ancient date, and was familiar to the Operative Masons. In the year 1830, the architect, in rebuilding a very ancient bridge called Baal Bridge, near Limerick, in Ireland, found under the foundation-stone an old brass square, much eaten away, containing on its two side surfaces the following inscription, the U being read as V: I. WILL STRIUE. TO. LIUE.--WITH. LOUE. & CARE.--UPON. THE LEUL.--BY. THE. SQUARE., and the date 1517. The modern Speculative Freemason will recognize the idea of living on the level and by the square. This discovery proves, if proof were necessary, that the familiar idea was borrowed from our Operative Brethren of former days. The square, as a symbol in Speculative Freemasonry, has therefore presented itself from the very beginning of the revival period. In the very earliest catechism of the eighteenth century, of the date of 1725, we find the answer to the question, "How many make a Lodge?" is "God and the Square, with five or seven right or perfect Masons." God and the Square, religion and morality, must be present in every Lodge as governing principles. Signs at the early period were to be made by squares, and the Furniture of the Lodge was declared to be the Bible, Compasses, and Square. In all rites and in all languages where Freemasonry has penetrated, the square has preserved its primitive signification as a symbol of morality.
