Words to live by...

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

[Spanish Proverb]

Ius luxuriae publice datum est

(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.

That's impressive...

Plans have been put into action to gather those items left behind and ship them to our next stop in time for us to have them for the rest of the trip. Whether those plans work out remains to be seen.

We are firmly ensconced in Biloxi in a hotel/casino. Faye is happily gambling and I am happily sitting around in our room, watching TV and playing computer games and reading.

I have noticed there's a big difference in gambling cities. Las Vegas has a better looking clientele than Biloxi. I don't want you to get the impression that Biloxi caters to the toothless and obese trailer park types. Far from it. But they are also way down on the glamorous scale. I have seen a number of wide bottoms with "Juicy" stitched on the denim stretched across them. This is not something one easily spots in Las Vegas... For one thing, the writing is much smaller and the letters closer together there.

It's just a different atmosphere overall.
