Universal - very similar to Taylors.

It's based on Emulation. Nigerian I believe.

AndyJo - Agree, GQ Street is lovely and woolfs do a mean burger!

We use Universal.

Just got back from LOI - second as IPM although I am filling in JW for a double initiation next month. So much easier now there is no pressure and love that I still have work to do :-)

Blimey, I wasn't aware there were so many different workings. I know it is only small subtle differences, but they are noticable when visiting.

Craft Guide for W Kent Provincial lodge, with unique variations. It's been recreated on a word processor.

Emulsion words with Taylors rubric for my London outfit. The Lodge is only two months old, formed Dec 2011 from a terminally sick Lodge. We are completely revamping everything and have over 30 interested gentlemen in waiting - a nice problem to have.

Some of the differences are not so subtle. I visited a lodge to see a third in Bristol that observed old Bristol workings and I couldn't believe what I saw yikes!

Congrats. It's a bit different eh? Quite an experience, and I actually found it more powerful doing a 3rd as WM.

Congratulations! IMHO it is easily the most beautiful ceremony. Hope you enjoyed it.

Anyone else think we should get a lodge together where we do all the floor work in cars?! We may need a rather large lodge though...

Saw my first WM installation at the weekend (well I got kicked out half way through... but invited back in at the end) thought it was a great ceremony. Also my first time visiting and was made to feel very welcome (the tyler was quite fantastic company) obviously the best part was not driving with it being the weekend so lots of drink so if any of you on here were at the John Brunner lodge on Saturday then it was great to have met you (and I'll be visiting again soon)

Even this is disputed. Martin Short, who wrote about the Masons in his 1989 book Inside the Brotherhood, says the handshake is real. "If you meet a middle-ranking police officer, you'll suddenly find this distinctive pressure between your second and third fingers. The thumb switches position and you feel that someone is giving you an electric shock."

hehe

isn't that a FC's handshake on his 3rd?

Martin Short made more money out of Freemasonry (with his ludicrous book) than any mason has.
