Some feel uncomfortable with “For Dummies” books but for me, they’ve been some of the best learning resources ever. Since buying ‘DOS for Dummies’ in 1991, I’ve been hooked on them for fast, painless, humorous education. You’ve got friends that you’ve lost touch with, grandchildren who are online nearly all day long, and Masonic Brothers you’ve never met but where can you connect with all of them? Facebook is the place! Ah, but you don’t understand that foolishness, right? Here’s your answer: grab the book pictured on the left and learn all about it! $15 and you’ll be amazing yourself in no time. You’ll find friends from years past – and reconnect with distant or near family painlessly. It’s well worth the effort to learn this stuff and you’ll be amazed at the many Masonic connections you can make out there. Friend me by looking up ‘Ed King – masonicinfo’ and then look at my friends list to get started. It’s something I think you’ll really enjoy once you start. (PS: avoid the games which are time wasters!)
