"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.

I Got A New Toy


I get toys all the time now. Since I became an adult, I learned that I can buy things for me. The toy I got is a Golf GPS unit, a watch that doubles as a golf gps. I bought one some time ago and it had some problems but the company who made it was responsive and it got resolved. Therefore, I looked kindly on them and, this time, I bought a newer model of the same type. It still has some of the tricky charging attributes of the older model but worked well enough to charge it yesterday when I received it. You never know if any device is fully charged when it arrives.

It looks like the old one but slimmer and with some blue hi-lites on the watch and band. It is noticeably lighter too. The real test is today when I use it on the course.

My problem is that the GPS says it's 150 yards to the green. So I take out my 8 iron, which is supposed to go 150 yards. I hit the ball, and I look up, and the ball is not on the green. That GPS is a piece of crap!

Tom, 150 yds for an 8-iron? You would have to hit it perfectly, wouldn't you? And straight.
