I'd like to hear from my brothers in Christ, who have gone through the initiation weekend, about how the weekend, and The MKP affected you/affects you.  PMs only, please.

That sounds great! In Charlotte, our I-Group which meets every 2 weeks has from 3 men to 8 men depending on the time of year and how busy men are. I would offer the idea that as much as we like to see the numbers of men grow in a group, it is more important that the group meets for the men who come to it. You never know what is going on in a mans life and that the group may be a life line for him. Keep up the good work. Aho!

To answer your question Steve, it went well. Largest meeting in a year (five gentlemen). Was nice to see each other again, catching up with some beers and a fire under a lovely winter nighttime sky.

It's tonight, so far five men have said they would come. I'll get back to you after. Have to go home and get the area set up before it gets dark. Actually will have a nice, starry, cold night for a change. First one in awhile.

I'll be hosting our MKP group at my house this week.

I'm sure anyone reading this thinks not a big deal, but our group has been in critical condition for the past year. Infrequent meetings, and a very low attendance of two, sometimes three men. I've had up to four men say they would attend, a record, which I attribute to the fact I've offered my new sunken fire pit to gather 'round. Guys do like fire.

But the big thing for me is this; for the first time in my adult life I'll have a group of men over. Ever.

And given the prognosis for the group, probably the last time. I can thank MKP for giving me, once, something that so many take men for granted and do so easily.

Gotta go get me some firewood.

I am so appreciative of men who were on the MOS Team and worked so very hard  to nourish the staff. I am also  very grateful to Bill who was not only my C0-MOS King but my Mentor since I have never been a MOS King or have ever been on an MOS team. This was an wonderful experience and in my opinion, I believe all initiated men should staff and MOS at least once. Aho!

Great job, Steve! Going up to homecoming today to meet the new brothers!

Profanity and Vulgarity

My two 30-something sons tape a cable show called Penn & Teller: Bullshit! and I watch an episode every so often when I'm in the mood for something humorous and a bit risqué. I just watched the latest which was on the subject of profanity.Personally, I make a great distinction between profanity (as in using the Lord's name in vain) and vulgarity (as in using offensive or rude words).Generally I will say "Rats!" when something happens like I drop something.  Even though this word is old…See More
