- Most balanced Masonic blog: Masonic Traveler.
- Best international Masonic blogs: Grail Quest (Danish-Irish) and Middlesex-Fire (British).
- Most introspective and thought-provoking Masonic blog: Movable Jewel.

w00t! Best! :-)ReplyDelete
(Oh, never mind that Grail Quest shares the honour with Middlesex Fire, that well-articulated, positivity-exuding, activity-brimming blog of much greater interest to the readership at large!)
Kudos to everyone – keep blogging! And thanks to WS for his impressive output of honest and thoughtful musings.
I am honored to be listed among such a distinguished list of Masonic blogs! I wish you all the best in the New Year and in Masonry!ReplyDelete
Due to the intention of my blog, "Most Masonicaly Useful" is the highest compliment it could receive. Thanks for the consideration, brother! Happy New Year!ReplyDelete
Thanks, WS. Humor is serious stuff: I knew it was going to be tough going until I could edge out Erma Bombeck.ReplyDelete
The Tao of Masonry
It is great to see that all 4 Bloggers from the Nutmeg State made the list. Thanks W.S. I hope to realize my potential someday.ReplyDelete
Man, I feel so shafted. :)ReplyDelete
Man, I feel so shafted. :)
Cory says- Don't feel slighted Bro. Just keep on keeping on and next year we'll see you on the list.
Thank you, WS, for bestowing upon me the dubious distinction of "Laziest Masonic Blogger." :)ReplyDelete
Truth to tell, I have not had much to write about since September, when I was accepted by my lodge but unable to attend the EA degree that was held that month.
Chances are good that I'll have much to write about in another month or so.
Wishing you all a very happy new year,
My blog is the greatestReplyDelete
Bucket of Masonic Bullshat!
it is not about you
it is all about me!
BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH
WHINE WHINE WHINE
I'm regular as a mason and in my Bowel Movements!
Oh yeah, and my Grand Lodge rules!
What a great time to be a regular, recognised mainstream mason!

While I'll admit I found your initial presence here as a mocking parody amusing and pretty on-target, its entertainment value is dropping fast.
Your point is made, and bravo.
But satire can only go so far... ask Jon Swift (the original one).... Everyone says they read Gulliver's Travels, but most of us barely got through the bit about the horses and the tiny Lilliputians. Too much satire just bores us. (More proof — no one watches SNL anymore.)
What I'm saying is this: Enough already. Please contribute something to the flow of discussion here, or go taunt your subject of derision directly.
I myself got past the Brobdingnagians. But I have a high satire tolerance.ReplyDelete
Many thanks for your kind words about Movable Jewel Brother. I am humbled that I can perphaps provide some thought provoking material for my Internet Brethren.ReplyDelete
All the best to you and those you care for in 2008.
Most balanced... sniff sniff, I was hoping for at least sometimes edgy.ReplyDelete
Just kidding, brother, I appreciate the mention and the nod. I've been neck deep in life to keep up with the blog train, but I am glad to know that you still carry the torch.
