Unbelievable Deal - in my opinion...

This has to be a deal worth blogging about... (and read to the bottom for my special teaser message)
I just renewed my Skype subscription for another year. I pay a year at a time. Why do I pay, you ask? Because Skype is free isn't it? Well yes it's free if you want to just call other people with Skype but if you want to use it to call anyone, on virtually any phone then you need to pay. So I have my long distance now cut down for the next year, unless I get lazy, to a mere $24 roughly. Yup that's ANNUAL, not monthly. And if your in Canada or the US I can call you for free and sit on the line for hours. Don't cost me any more.

I may be a bit of a tech geek but Skype is easy to use. Use this link and get 33% off 3 or 12 month calling subscriptions from Skype until 1st June. That's not far off. And rememebr just to go for the year. It isn't much money anyway. You might want to get a headset to use as well, for better quality calls. Or go all the way and invest in a Skype-enabled phone.

Skype comes in handy for my upcoming masonic podcast program too... And you though I was slow on posting? I have been working on something larger that took my energy elsewhere. Stay tuned!

Ad Astra Lodge's Last Meeting at Freemason's Hall, Halifax, NS

It's been so long since my last post. I'd like to make a quick post tonight and remind all my brethren that there is an open invitation to my lodge's last meeting in the Grand Lodge building in Halifax, NS (Freemason's Hall). After which the building is sold to a developer and we are moving to a new hall... soon-to-be renovated from a catholic church. I guess that will be done over the summer.... June's meeting has to be held elsewhere, under dispensation.

The meeting starts at 7:30 pm and it will be a Lodge of Education. I'm told the Grand Master of Nova Scotia will be present in a non-official capacity.

As e-mailed to me... here is the nights agenda...

We are pleased to announce that the "Whither Are We Directing Our Steps"
part of our program will be presented by
Brothers Steven Foley, John Fawcett and Dion Randell.
It concludes with the examination of a Stone Mason, in Scotland, (as recorded in the year 1700)
as he requests entrance to a Lodge.
