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.

It's an Extra Deodorant Day, I Guess

When my family moved to Florida, it was the mid-1950's, we had no air conditioning. In the summer, we basically sweltered. I don't recall it being so oppressive as to be intolerable. Of course, I was just a boy then and could tolerate a lot.

It wasn't until 1963, when we moved to Orlando, that we got A/C.

I am getting to relive those days of my early youth. My A/C stopped cooling the house yesterday. Which means that I will be spending a good part of today trying to get an A/C tech out to my house. And sweating.
