A group of Master Masons talk about topics of Masonic interest--each from their own unique perspective. You'll find a wide range of subjects including history, trivia, travel, book reviews, great quotes, and hopefully a little humor as well on topics of interest for Freemasons and those interested in the subject of Freemasonry.
Truman made a speech at the Washington Garden Club. He gave credit for his
beautiful flowers to the good "manure" he used to fertilize them. The prim and
proper ladies didn't think much of the President's repeated use of the word
of them said something to the First Lady, Bess Truman. She asked Bess if she
could make him stop using the word "manure." It was a vulgar word in their
opinion, and he was, afterall, the President of the United States.
"Heavens no! It took me twenty-five years to get him to say 'manure.'"
