"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."
(The right to looseness has been officially given)
"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.

Just a few short words now (maybe more later).
First - A salute to all our veterans. Whether you served in popular wars, unpopular wars, or in peacetime, you have my gratitude and thanks for your service. My time was 1965-1969 in the US Navy. But it does not matter to me if you were Navy, Marine, Army, Air Force, or Coast Guard, Active or Reserve, you are all my brothers and sisters.
Second - I had to remove the Dilbert Widget because it seemed to be causing my Firefox to crash. If I can get a fix for that, it'll be back up (though that sidebar is getting crowded).
Third - I don't have a green thumb but I am proud of my little Key Lime tree. It sits on my back porch and seems to be thriving. Everything I read says it should be 5 years before it produces but I have had it for about 6 months and this is the second attempt it has made to produce. The first attempt failed and they all fell off before they reached the size of a dime.
