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.

The 7 signs of age-related depression

  • Catching a glimpse of that old person in the bathroom mirror when you expected to see the teenager you once were.

  • Realizing the hair growing in and on your ears is gray.

  • Considering a "push-up" to be getting out of a chair.

  • Loosening your belt before you sit down to eat.

  • Finding a 70-something person of the opposite sex "attractive" and "young", even "sexy."

  • Looking forward to going to bed early... to sleep.

  • Being surprised to learn the Oldies station is playing music from the 80's now.
