Joke Just For Fun

Posted by Ed C. Olifernes on August 26, 2011 at 3:35 AM Comments comments (0)

If a woman sleeps with 5 men everybody calls her a SLUT.  

But when a man sleeps with 10 women everybody calls him "the REAL MAN".  

Why so?

Because Confucius once said:

"When one lock can be opened by 5 different keys, it is a bad lock.  

But when one lock  can open more than 10  different locks it is a good key.

And, it is called a MASTER KEY".

- By Brother Bong Mendoza Villacorta

The Lost Word

Posted by Ed C. Olifernes on August 25, 2011 at 4:45 AM Comments comments (1)


I am a mason because I am free, I always practice honesty,

A citizen of high - caliber, Before, today and thereafter.

Of manners irreproachable, Of very good intentions,

A man of responsibilities, An enemy of passion.

A lover of reason, Gladiator for the truth,

Mason of great emotion, In the confines of brotherhood.

Remember Bro. Alexander Dimaranan.

Posted by Ed C. Olifernes on July 23, 2010 at 1:30 AM Comments comments (0)

Adding the name of our late brother, Bro. Alexander Dimaranan, among our fallen brothers whom we ought to remember is in order.  He joined the craft a few months after I became a Master Mason. Kindly include his name as a fallen member of our Masonic family.  I believe his father, VW Bro. Magdaleno Dimaranan, is unaware of this but I likewise believe he would feel happy knowing that we remember Bro. Alex.

Remember Bro. Cervantes.

Having much free time in Pasay City it has been my habit to always visit our website. As I was reading the list of our fallen brothers I missed reading the name of  one of ours who in his life was very bubbly and was actively involved in the affairs of our lodge.  He was, in his life,  an IRRI employee and perhaps most of the brothers who used to work at IRRI also know him.  I forgot his first name and his death came at a time when I myself was inching my way to resurrecti...

Masonic wisdom (copied from Bro. Serge Arevalo’s blog.)


It was a tale of Masonic men surrounding a campfire in theOld West, at night, discussing the Fraternity and its teachings. One old manlistened patiently, and finally spoke up:


'I can tell you more about Masonry in a little example than some of the greatMasonic philosophers can in books. Everybody stand up, and gather in a circlearound the campfire.'


They did that....
