  • GLs of Tahiti and China : Joint Recognition

    02 March 2012

    It’s not going to cause major waves in international Freemasonry but the first recognition of a new Grand Lodge is an important milestone in its brief history. For the moment it would appear that the Grand Lodge of Tahiti and the Archipelagos (GLRT) is...

  • It’s raining writs !!!

    02 March 2012

    And who said the French judges were overworked ? All alone the GLNF blue apron brigade keep an abnormally large number of our magistrates more than occupied (and at our expense, in general, not only as taxpayers, but as sometime payers of GLNF dues)....

  • Dupinay sacked by Miss Monique

    14 March 2012

  • Last act of a tragic farce, or a farcical tragedy !!!

    18 March 2012

    Where are we today, more than 27 months since 34 Brothers stood up during a meeting of the SGC, removed their aprons and requested permission to ask a series of questions. Two whole years have gone by since Ephesse found himself in a minority at the AGM...

  • Send Ephesse an e-mail, or phone him !!!

    21 March 2012

    Brethren, for the past 16 months Winnie has been informing you of the day to day evolution of the GLNF crisis. Well, Winnie has had enough. The publication of the names of the 10 candidates for Grand Master, the “squeezing” of 5 others, in particular...

  • Birth announcement

    24 March 2012

    Birth announcement The « hatched, matched and dispatched » column of the « Times » is beyond my limited budget. So it is on LML in English that I proudly announce the birth of the new regular Grand Lodge in France, the Grande Loge de l’Alliance Maçonnique...

  • Ten green bottles … !!!

    28 March 2012

    You all know the old song : “…And if one green bottle should accidentally fall, There’d be X green bottles sitting on the wall…” Or, without seeking to be racist, the title of an Agatha Christie classic, “Ten Little N…..s”. A few days ago there were ten...

  • Heyraud’s no hero !!!

    29 March 2012

    The fastest quill in the GLNF, usually dripping vitriol (pun intended !), could whip out a dozen suspension and exclusion ordinances before breakfast. And twice as many before morning tea. At least a thousand by the end of the day !!! Yes folks, I’m talking...

  • And then there were six, and only one round !!!

    29 March 2012

    The ink was hardly dry on my previous article when I learned that No Hero Heyraud had thrown in the towel. A rubber chicken got stuck in his throat at last night’s swish reception for the movers and shakers. Or maybe he put on his glasses and saw the...

  • Don’t bank on a June 23rd AGM

    11 April 2012

    Several weeks prior to the March 30th meeting of the SGC, a former close advisor to Ephesse suggested that should he (FS) be re-elected (a foregone conclusion because of the gerrymander) the ratification by an AGM would be postponed almost indefinitely....

  • Get it Rite !!!

  • Recognition : dotting the « i’s » and crossing the « t’s »

    24 April 2012

  • Ephesse wants Miss Monique to disappear… …and Miss Monique contests Ephesse’s election !!

    05 May 2012

    It was never meant to be a marriage made in heaven. But it seems the divorce proceedings will be on public display in the market place and the only winners will be the legal eagles. Miss Monique has yet to digest being pipped at the post by Ephesse on...

  • Fiction from the Stifani faction !!!

    31 May 2012

  • The Big Apple spits the pip !!!

    02 June 2012

    Philippe Tardivel’s diatribe of lies and half-truths, concocted to try to stop the wave of Amrerican rejection has got its first reaction. And it ceretainly isn’t what he and Ephesse were banking on. Our American Brothers were not fooled. The Grand Lodge...
