Mustache Militia

Here i stand in the Holiest of Lands! I have stood in the presence of world wonders like the Nile and the Pyramids. I look out my bedroom window every morning and see the dome of the rock and the western wall. I sleep and awake to the Jerusalem call to prayer...I truly live in a land of magic carpet rides; it is a whole new world! How could i dare close my eyes? Such a beautiful place and yet i yearn for more!!! My heart it cries, "what a gaping hole there is in my left atrium...What is missing?!!!" I listen and i wonder and ponder. After many nights of resltess dreams and lost sleep due to the worry and need to fill my broken heart i have come to only one conclusion! I must join with the Mustache Militia!!! They have been signing volunteers here but a fortnight ago. I must sign my soul to a contract binding me to the growth of facial hair on my upper lip....this and only this will calm my troubled mind. In the carefully sculpted short stubble on my upper lip i will find peace...
If you too feel lost and alone....maybe your heart and soul cry out, "help us we need comfort!" consider the Mustache Militia. They are an elite group of substantial military prowess similar to that of the Navy Seals or the Green Berets...and yet they are more. It is truly a misconception that they are a symbol of burps and farts...wife beater t-shirts and Nascar. They are upper class gentleman with standards..."forks on the left and knives on the right," they order the uneducated. They are a symbol of all manhood. Raw Testosterone!!! They can simultaneously fold a man into a pretzel; Eat a nine course meal in a tux; and take a shower!
Think of the greats...Tom Selik...Chuck Norris...and Johnny Depp.
Mustache equals Peace!!!
cordially yours,
Jordan Mulford

The Wall

Well hello one and all...I know that i have not written as diligently as i need to do!!! I do have things to tell you though about this wonderful land we call Holy!! It is fantastic...I have visited many places and been witness to many examples of different religious beliefs...Let me tell you about one such occasion...There is a wall here known as the Wailing Wall this wall is held sacred by the Jewish people and they often are found worshipping at the wall. Jews will often pray at the wall and write written prayers and stick them into the cracks of the wall...when they pray they rock back and forth and read from the scriptures. They do this so that they can show the Lord that they are using their heart, might, mind and souls in their worship! After praying they back up slowly from the wall so as not to turn there backs on the Lord. I have also prayed at the wall and stuck my written prayer into the cracks that are all over in it.

Why is this wall so sacred you may ask. Well let me give you the brief synopsis. This is where the temple of Solomon stood before it was destroyed...than Zerubabel rebuilt his temple their. Finally Herod added onto the temple and made it a marvelous and magnificent place in his time.
This temple was destroyed by the Romans in 70AD. The Wall is what is left of the temple mount of Herod's temple. It is holy to the Jews as it is the last remnant of the temple that they have!

The other night i went to the temple to welcome in the Sabbath with my peers. The wall was transformed to a jovial party. When these guys say they are welcoming in the Sabbath they really do a bang up job!!! WE were dancing and singing and making merry! It was such a cool experience....people were in there nice clothes praying and worshipping together....It was so cool!!! Bottom line if you are the kind of person that is spiritual and at the same time loves to party it up...I have found the place for you!!!
