"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."
Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

I need to improve this site's image(s)
Just testing how to place a picture in a blog entry... so I took an old picture I had and plugged it in. That was a much younger me (as you can tell by the beard color). It was taken with my (then future) wife upon my knee. They dressed me up like an old time gambler, Faye like a dance hall gal, and posed us nicely. Faye won't let me show you the rest of the picture. I think she looked pretty good as a dance hall gal.
I need to do some more playing with this so I understand how to place the pictures where I want them. It would be nice to do this with my Snippet of Life series.
For instance, below is an old picture of the school in Farmingdale. How much easier it would be to grasp the description of that school when there's a picture to guide you. Of course, that picture was taken many decades before I was a student there. They had added onto it. To the right, there was a an auditorium. In front, a grand old oak, majestic and broad. A circular walkway led up to the front steps from the sidewalk along Main St.
Yes, I think this site will definitely benefit from this. I've also added a couple of things on the sidebar. Dilbert, for those who love office wisdom and "Martha's Word". Martha sends me (and many others) an email each day that tells about a word. I find them interesting to fascinating. I am hoping you do also.
