It's funny, I walked into a captain's office a few months ago (I'm an E-6) just to visit and say hello. At the time, I was a FC so I was catching onto things in Masonry. I walked in and said hello and he extended his hand to me and shook it in a peculiar manner. So naturally, my mind was stuck there for about 3 minutes as he's describing how to do something I had casually asked him about related to Air Force. After a few minutes, I finally said, "Sir, are you a Mason?" He started cheesing and said "I sure am!" I didn't say why I assumed he was but I just said "I thought you were" We got a good chuckle out of it and started asking each other questions which lodge and this and that. I was about to be raised in a few days and low and behold, he came. He drove a good hour to my lodge and attended my ceremony. I thought that was really cool and I appreciated that a lot.

Always interesting when you find out someone else, maybe you've known for years, is brother.

That happen to other folks?

I'm pretty sure that happens a lot based on my own encounters and those around me - and it was very cool that he drove all that way to attend your raising.   Congrats, looking forward to good things out of you!

About 20 years ago I was on a filed assignment with Harris Corporation in Germany, testing a comm system we had sold them. We were setting up in a training area near Kaisersalutern; a detachment of the Belgian Army was doing an exercise adjacent to us. One morning, one of the Belgian NCOs came up to me, pointed to my ring, and identified himself as a Brother. We had a nice chat, after I got over the surprise.  Also while there, I met a member of the local (Pirmasens) Lodge who worked on base, and had the opportunity to sit in Lodge with them. A very nice experience.

Biver no longer has a day-to-day role in Hublot, but rather manages Hublot replica watches along with other LVMH watch brands from the top. For instance, it was recently announced that he replica watches would be filling in as the interim CEO of TAG Heuer - another LVMH brand. That isn't a job Jean-Claude probably rolex replica wants right now, as he has been toying with retirement for a while - but he steps up when he is rolex replica sale needed. Hublot has been doing a good job of keeping the fire alive without Jean-Claude, but with Ricardo always out and about, I can't help but wonder who rolex replica keeps the peace back at HQ. I mention the above as a semi-explanation of the fact that Hublot doesn't always have all the replica watches details settled when they announce a new replica watches uk partnership or product. The major question on the table is whether or not there will be a limited replica watches uk production "Mr. Brainwatch Edition" watch.
