Join us at http://groups.google.com/group/Eponymous

There a lots of serious ritual traders there posting all of the time.  Mostly Greek orgs., but also other secret societies such as Oddfellows, Acacia, and Freemasons as well.  It is a closed forum, so you may post freely as only other members with your interest are admitted.  

Hope to see you there.

I live next door to an Oddfellows lodge and they need to learn how to cut their damn grass more than once a month! So sick of their 2 foot tall grass making our street ugly. Be benevolent to your neighbors by maintaining a decent yard. Most the time it looks like an abandoned building with no one to care for it and apparently the city doesn't care to MAKE them cut it. Half the time it only gets cut because of a neighbor down the street and his riding lawn mower.

Thanks for the necro-thread. Why are you telling us and not the Oddfellows? Wait, don't tell me because I don't care about that either.

My understanding of the Oddfellows besides being used as a name for many pubs (public houses) is that it was one of many 'friendly societies' which flourished during the 19th century whose purpose was to look after the welfare of it's members and their families in times of financial hardship and ill health as this was a time before trade unions and free health care existed so these societies functioned in much the same way. There were many such organisations which took grandiose names, titles and claimed ancient lineage my own particular favourite being The Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffalos ( R.A.O.B ) which my grandfather was a member. I think such organisations that continue to this day operate in much the same way though in the UK at least I don't think their numbers are anywhere near what they were in their heyday.
