Food For Thought
Foreword - updated on 24th March 2018
Welcome to Food for Thought pages. My apologies for the delay.

In my Blog pages there a links to the Holiday furore about masonic influence in the UK Houses of Parliament.

I have at last changed of how I archive my Blogs as PDF files, but am not fully satisfied yet so I may revert to the old more manual method.

I have had a real problem writing my topic page for this update. At least that was until today, when my wife drew my attention to a Facebook item reporting the appointment of our editor and webmaster Russ Pratt to District Grand Master of Kapiti-Wellington District. MANY CONGRATULATIONS..

Finally I have changed the Historic Reference files button to go to a menu of websites with great magazine issues. I have collated and written a table of contents for each to help you access them directly.
