Samuel Johnson, The Idler, 4/5/1760

    Commie Symp Rambling The forced acceptance of a massive Muslim invasion; the gag order on the British press surrounding Tommy Robinson; European press compliance with whatever Brussels dictates; a 180-degree turn in the mass culture with respect to homosexual activity. Something sinister has been afoot . . . and probably has been for many years: […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling TDE reader who knows I really dig Cedar Point sends this nuggest along: “Sandusky was a very German city in the late 1800s. Also was an Underground Railroad endpoint, to get on boats to Canada. Saw an article once that said Canadian blacks (never slaves) used to put down the former slaves saying […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling I really like Netflix, but I’m afraid I’m going to have to cancel my subscription soon. Like all media outlets, it just can’t leave the political button alone. American Thinker lays out some of the evidence. I was giving [the children’s show, The Who Was Show] mild attention as my kids watched in […]

    Holiday Weekend Rambling Whew. I think I dodged a bullet. I worked late last night, like I do every Friday of Memorial Day weekend, drinking gin and cleaning my office. I texted a friend of mine to see if he was available for a drink around 7:00. He didn’t respond, so I rode my bike […]

    Welcome to Summer BYCU I’m not a huge fan of Liquor.com, but sometimes, they suggest a recipe that looks too good not to try. This Summer Friday Cocktail is one of them. It sounds like a perfect way to start the summer today: 1 1⁄2 oz Vodka 2 oz Coconut milk 3⁄4 oz Simple syrup […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling Freakin’ Africa. Stupid, ignorant Africa: “More than 200 farmers from South Africa have applied for humanitarian visas in Australia after allegedly suffering attacks for being white, according to the Australian Home Affairs Ministry.” Link. So they’re going to take the land from the white farmers, who have held it for 400 years, and […]

    Hump Day Rambling My home garden is almost finished. The side yard is looking nice (see pic below). I’m really hoping the poppy flowers I planted come in. They’re “Jimi Purple Haze” poppies. I suspect I planted them a bit too late and may have planted the seeds a bit too deep. Maybe I’m worrying […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling Memorial Day weekend is almost here. Marie and the kids abandon me for the weekend so they can go bird watching with Marie’s family. I have the option of going, too, of course, but I’d rather slam my genitals in a car door, so I’ll be flying solo. I’d rather have my family […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling I ran across a really cool program this weekend: Acorns. It’s micro-investing. For just $1.00 a month, you can tie your credit card to the program and it will round up your spare change from credit card purchases and invest it. So, for instance, if you spend $9.46 on lunch, the app will […]

    "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.
