Re: Donations

I'd be more than happy from time to time to send a check.
I appreciate the site too much to let paypay dictate this.
But I cannot find an address for the site. Do you want
to share one with me?

A Blessed Ramadan to all.

I have a small book called Enchiridion somewhere.

According to Etymonline,LukeJavan8 is almost correct. "hash" is a shortened form of "hashish" which in turn derives from Arabic (not Farsi) "hashish" https://www.etymonline.com/word/hashish It is etymologically related to "assassin" https://www.etymonline.com...

Re: Bannish

The concept of a man with two families was the subject

Re: Hash

I've heard the smoked kind is related to the Iranian terrorists
known as the 'assassins' who smoked hashish before going
on their raids. Don't know how true that is.
