Springfield, MA -- Massachusetts has always been on the forefront of innovation in Freemasonry, so it was no surprise when the Grand Lodge announced that they are ready to release a modernized second section, or "staircase" lecture for Those might have been important in the old days, but now that everyone pretty much has the same liberal arts education, we've decided that it's time to make the educational staircase lecture more relevant.
More high tech, you know? Altoona, PA - The proliferation of YouTube videos and other online tutorials have encouraged a growing number of Freemasons to take on basic and even some advanced building improvement in and around their lodges. However, noting the increasing numbers of mishaps in the last several years, the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania has worked with a well known commercial insurance group to offer lodges coverage on what many are calling "Bro-bono Contractors.
No offense to many of my well meaning brothers, but some of these lodges get together for a work party, armed with a few cases of beer, some old tools, and an internet connection. It doesn't always end well. Naturally they ended up mixing oil based paint with latex, and the walls actually had to be town down and new sheetrock put up. The Past Bastard asked if the Grand Lodge shouldn't try to discourage some of these brothers, instead of offering insurance. Doesn't that just encourage them?
The more independent minded would just offer to do it themselves, and that's who we're looking out for. The Past Bastard asked why the policy coverage pays for non-Masons to do the work. And then they'll take six months to even pay the guy because some past mater will complain about some little detail, and then there will be some kind of feud. You know how they get. Unfortunately, none of us foresaw what the state of Freemasonry would become.
Almost two years," said RW Curtis Bullock. They asked for my employment history, where I went to church, where my mom went to church, you name it. Almost two years! But this guy I work with, he joined the state lodge in his town, right? It didn't take even two months from getting that blue paper to his initiation. I honestly thought he was joking with me when I heard that. Two months? Join Our Free Trial Now!

But the point is that Glen, who is supposed to "fix" Bone's illegitimacy by serving as a father for her, in the end only makes her fatherlessness worse. Even though Bone herself doesn't seem to care too much about her illegitimacy, it's a problem that keeps hurting her. Everybody the novel keeps talking about who looks like whom, what people looked like when they were younger, what people are going to look like when they get older, where people got their hair or eyes from The Boatwrights are obsessed with looking like each other.
We also know that Granny describes the family as "[n]one of us quiet, all of us fighters" 2. She even thinks that real Boatwright men get thrown in jail regularly; if you're not in jail, you don't have enough spirit. It's rare that you'll find a character anywhere who isn't somehow defined by his or her family or lack thereof , but in this novel family is huge part of each character's identity.
Bone loves her family, but at the same time she hates how trashy they are. After all, if they're trash, then she is, too. On top of that, Bone doesn't exactly fit the Boatwright paradigm: she's not exactly a regular hell-raiser though she does have her delinquent moment when she breaks into Woolworth's , and she has black hair that she may have inherited either from her Cherokee ancestor or her absent father.
Bone is dealing with some big identity issues when it comes to her family. The Boatwrights are always trying to reassure Bone that she is one of them, but the fact that she needs reassurance at all indicates that she's lacking a little in the Boatwright department.
So there are times when she feels like an outsider in her own family, and there are times when she feels too much like a Boatwright like when she gets her photo in the newspaper after she has been raped.
We'd like to think that Bone's got the best of the Boatwright genes, and the novel seems to concur. Just take a look at the last lines of the novel: "I was who I was going to be, someone like her, like Mama, a Boatwright woman"Bone is a natural product and can vary in color between white and off white; Narrow Dobro bone nut blank *PLEASE CHECK SIZE BEFORE ORDERING; Size is approx. 2 1/32" x 3/4" "x 3/16" or mm x mm x 5mm; 1 bone nut blank; Many luthiers and guitar manufacturers prefer bone nuts for their instruments.
