    Do you know what I just realized? The cases look REALLY similar to the GMail symbol.

      Lol yeah that’s sort of a joke among Masons right now – the red and white Royal Arch aprons look a lot like the GMail icon.

    Would you mind if I used 2 of your pictures on the web site http://www.masonswi.org? I added them to our email page so you can see how they would be used.

        Hey, what happened to the Excelsior Lodge link in your name?

        • #6 by Joshua on June 24, 2010 - 6:29 PM

          For me it still shows up. That URL is dead tho (as is Excelsior – we’re Lake Lodge now). I should really change it.

            Ookay. It shows up when I post while logged in but not when I use the forms. Also, how do I change what link it posts when I’m logged in?

            If you hit Edit Account, and find the Personal Settings, the link is down in there, near the bottom.
