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.

Places I Don't Patronize

I am sure they don't miss me either.

MacDonalds - Stopped going there in the late 70's after missing the breakfast by 3 minutes. No big deal, I preferred Jack in the Box in California and Burger King on the east coast.

Ruby Tuesdays - Stopped going there about 5 years ago when we (me, my sister, and my aunt) were ignored for 45 minutes by the waitstaff (no one seemed to know whose table we were).

Outback Steakhouse - Faye gave up on them a few years ago when the local franchise couldn't cook her steak properly and I go along with her (less strife that way).

Sam's Club - They promise to build a Sam's in Sebring (I was driving 55 miles each way and getting real tired of it) and then didn't... They bought the property, razed the buildings on it, and have let it sit for 3 years.

Kohl's, Best Buy, Target, BJ's, and Costco - None in town but I was not a fan of Costco anyway.

In fact, there's a lot of places that we don't go to simply because they have no presence in Sebring. But, when we're in some town that has them, I have no problem going to them.
