Freemasons have more fun!

I really don't know anything about the Freemasons except that they seem mysterious and cool. Their mystic symbols and art, originating from the 16th century, are down right dreamy in my book..

The list of famous Freemasons though-out history is impressive. A few that caught my eye include Harry Houdini, Marc Chagall, Davy Crockett, Mark Twain, Clark Gable, and all the Ringling Brothers. Many U.S. Presidents were Freemasons, dating back to George Washington. What do these guys know that I don't?

It's a bummer that they don't allow women to join the Freemasons. But what if a woman or two rented the Masonic Lodge, what then?
That's where this post is heading... the Masonic Lodge is for rent.

Tomorrow a few of us shall enter this forbidden temple, shrouded in centuries of mystery, and perhaps a few secrets shall be revealed!

Well, although traditional mainstream Masonry does not admit women, there are branches that do. The Co-Masons in this country admit women.

Although I am only familiar with mainstream Masonic ritual I am told that the Co-Masonic ritual is pretty mych the same.
