    The Rite of Memphis and Misraim

    in Radio

    On Thursday April 30th, 2015 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will present a discussion on the quasi-Masonic Rite of Memphis, sometimes called the Rite of Memphis and Misraim which is highly irregular in orthodox Masonic circles and is usually considered a Clandestine (unrecognized and proscribed) organization to which regular Masons cannot belong. This collection of rites or degrees (96 of them) has a long and colorful history which we will delve into consulting Mackey, Calvin C. Brut, John Yarker and Allen Greenfield. In the 1880's the Rite of Memphis infiltrated the Scottish Rites Northern Jurisdiction and went into competition with Scottish Rite itself to see which system would become an accepted Advanced (Red Lodge) along with York Rite for regular American Masons. Scottish Rite's 33 degree system won the turf war, with Albert Pike's help and the Rite of M&M disappeared into the College of defunct Masonic Rites (yes there is such an institution). The same thing had happened to it in France a hundred years earlier when the Grand Orient absorbed it and locked it up in their archives -- but the M&M is not easily suppressed. Its founder, after signing it over to the Grand Orient, sneaked it into Moldavia (one of Dracula's hang outs) and it briefly rose again. Recently Masonic mavericks Allen Greenfield and Jeff Peace have tried to resurrect it here in the United States. Jeff Peace tried to get a number of regular Masons who were interested in the esoteric involved in M&M, at their peril. So if you would like to explore a delightfully conspiratorial and deliciously controversial secret society that claims to have "All the Secrets of ancient Masonry and certainly enough of its degrees" then tune in and we'll sail up the Nile to the Pyramids.

    Replay - Jill Pond of Girl's Rite

    in Women

    Jill Pond is the founder of Girl’s Rite and Safe Kids by Personal Body Safety Programs and is a Senior Workshop Facilitator.  She is a Colorado native and mother of 2 little girls. Jill holds a BA in Communication, and is currently a Sexual Health Educator. She is a trained Sexual Health Educator through Planned Parenthood, as well as a trained facilitator of Our Whole Lives, a comprehensive sexual heath education curriculum. She teaches Growing and Changing to the 5th graders in Jefferson County, and to 4th and 5th graders in the Unitarian Church.   Jill also teaches Safe

    Kids classes to preschool through third grade in Jefferson County Schools.

    Her decision to form Girls’ Rite came from a deep desire to empower girls through their adolescent years, years that were awkward, confusing and full of angst for her. Becoming a mother of two girls provided her with the motivation to create a program that would support girls and their families during this potentially difficult time. Fed up with the messages and role models provided by our society and media, Jill believes that the need for education and discussion is imperative for girls. As they become young adults encountering new situations, she believes they need to be sure of their decision making skills and values, values which are so easily influenced by television, movies, music and peer pressure.

    Safe Kids by Personal Body Safety Programs grew from a desire to protect and empower her own kids.  Kids are the most vunerable and trusting people in our population, and by educating girls, boys and their parents, Jill believes that as a community we can significantly lower the rates of childhood sexual abuse and abduction.

    in Lifestyle


    Brenda, Lydia, Mel and NIna are going to celebrate the day by sharing some drink and food reipes. Join us and help us celebrate with some of your own ideas for the celebrations.  Another reason to celebrate is always welcome and we are hoping youwill join us to celebrate everyday not just on special occasions. Let's get this party of life started.

    A brief discription of Cinco de Mayo

    It is a celebration held on May 5th. It is celebrated in the United States and in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla where the hokiday is calle El Dia de la Batalla dePuebla (English: The day of the battle of Puebla).. Mexican Americans also often see the day as a source of pride one way they can honor their ethnicity is to celebrate this day.

    The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army's unlikely victory over the French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguin. In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is sometimes mistaken to be Mexico's Independence Day - the most important national holiday in Mexico- which is celebrated on September 16.
