Samuel Johnson, The Idler, 4/5/1760

    Miscellaneous Rambling Greatly enjoying: American Vandal, a new series on Netflix. I’m not proud that I’m enjoying it, but it really cracks me up for some reason. I detest the skies more and more. I normally question things like this, but if we’re talking airlines, I believe it: Flying Coach Is So Cramped It Could […]

    Miscellany I planted my last bed for 2017 last night. I really enjoy “working the land,” but it felt good to know I was done planting for 2017. At this point, I’ll let the sprinklers and Max take over most of the work, while I settle in to concentrate on my Catholic history lectures and […]

    Brews You Can Use The unexpected hangover: the bane of my drinking existence. I had four small (one shot, not 1.5 shots) gin and tonics last night, then woke up at 1:00 with a pretty bad headache. I’m still dragging this morning, and I have meetings and a pile of paperwork to get through, so […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling I’ve been looking at the best way to prep my land for next year’s harvest. Coincidentally, I ran across this in-depth piece about restoring America’s soil: Can American soil be brought back to life? “Promoting soil health comes down to three basic practices: Make sure the soil is covered with plants at all […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling Kinda interesting: Florida was never supposed to be habitable. “A Requiem for Florida, the Paradise That Should Never Have Been.” Gavin McInnes video on why school sucks. Pretty funny. Warning: Language. Pretty funny: “[I]f prices are any indicator of demand, which they’re pretty much universally accepted to be unless you’re discussing minimum wages […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling Happy 9/11 Days! My parish played the wretched 9/11 tribute thing again. Fortunately, I smelled it coming and was able to do the Judas Shuffle before listening to it. Okay, it’s not wretched. I liked it the first time I heard it, and didn’t mind it the second time, but 20 times, to […]

    BYCU It’s not often I get a story grooved right to me: Tomorrow is International Buy Your Priest a Beer Day. I think this is a fabricated day, much like Truffles Day and Urinate While Sitting Day, but it’s worthy of our attention, for all the reasons laid out in the linked article above. I […]

     


    "The Daily Eudemon is the sort of thing that Chesterton or Mencken would be doing, if they were alive today. It's what, in saner times, was called journalism. In the writing and in the reading, it's exactly the sort of leisure we should want at the basis of culture."
    Mike Aquilina, Author of The Fathers of the Church and TV Talk Show Host.

    "Literate Catholicism-urbane, witty, engaged-is alive and well! If you can read, you should be reading The Daily Eudemon!" David Scott, author of A Revolution of Love: The Meaning of Mother Teresa

    "If you like your blogs pithy, nimble, pointed, high-spirited, and waggish, then bookmmark Eric Scheske's The Daily Eudemon. Ooops! You want prolixity, density, meandering, dull, and sober? Then run (do not walk!) to the blogs of the major news outlets. They have just what you want. Honestly they do." John Peterson, Editor, G.K. Chesterton: Collected Works, Volumes 12 and 13.

    "Eric Scheske's web site is full of information and insight.  Always worth a read."  James V. Schall, Author of Another Sort of Learning.

    "Eric Scheske has one of the few indispensable sites in an overcrowded blogosphere." Thomas E. Woods, Jr., Ph.D., New York Times Bestselling Author and Author of How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization.
