"The only end of writing is to enable the readers better to enjoy life."
Samuel Johnson, The Idler, 4/5/1760

    Brews You Can Use I made my annual trip to Trader Joe’s last weekend to buy “unique” products for client baskets and office presents. I saw for the first time wine in a can: Simpler Wines. I haven’t tried any yet, but the packaging made me thirsty. I guess the market for the innovation has […]

    Midweek Rambling AMAZON LINK. The business conference I attended two weeks ago said the entire Internet is going video: no one reads any more or, if they do, they won’t be shortly. In order to get your content noticed, it must be on video. So, with dread, I bought video-editing software last Sunday and started […]

    Midweek Rambling Thanks for the Amazon support. Please continue to access Amazon through TDE. It’s not a big deal to me, but the thought and extra beer money is appreciated. Speaking of Amazon, a lot of “uncontacted peoples” in the world live in the Amazon Rainforest. Here’s a list of all those radical nonconformists who […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling I was stunned/shocked to hear Bishop Morlino died. I only spent one evening with him, but I considered him a friend . . . and a fellow traveler. Needless to say, the Church lost a stalwart who was willing to call things like they are. It’s a terrible blow. In case you missed […]

    ENTER AMAZON HERE FOR CYBER MONDAY DEALS. THANKS! New podcast episode posted yesterday: Black Friday, Puritanizing Marijuana, Poustinia, Fools for Christ. I had to rush a bit, so it’s not my favorite episode, but neither am I embarrassed. Here are the Show Notes: Black Friday and the Gorillas: Are Black Friday shoppers near descendants of […]

    Rambling Please support The Daily Eudemon and its podcast by accessing Amazon through the various links you’ll find here or at eudemonpodcast.com. The commissions from Amazon during the holidays pay my independent website hosting costs, which allows me to justify this little hobby to Marie. The Amazon link in the upper-righthand corner doesn’t appear to […]

    On Black Friday Welcome to Black Friday, an infamous day that I have long railed against but one that grows on me for three reasons: 1. The cynical side of me recalls Albert Jay Nock’s “revelation” that he shouldn’t be disgusted by the bum on the street any more than he should be disgusted by […]

    Happy Thanksgiving

    Thursday, November 22nd, 2018

    “Thanksgiving Day originated in New England when the Puritans realized they had succeeded in exterminating their neighbors, the Indians, instead of getting exterminated by their neighbors, the Indians.” Mark Twain “Gratitude is a fruit of great cultivation; you do not find it among gross people.” Samuel Johnson “Beggar that I am, I am even poor […]

    Brews You Can Use: Special Black Wednesday Edition Black Wednesday arriveth. The biggest bar night of the year. The Top 10 Reasons Black Wednesday is The Drinking Night: 10. College kids return home. 9. Elementary school kids have only a half day. 8. Four days to recover from the hangover. 7. Four days to recover […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling Day Four of absolute sobriety. Black Wednesday looms. It’s possibly my favorite night of the year. I hope to have a BYCU Special Edition post tomorrow. This story didn’t surprise me: For the first time, researchers say Facebook can cause depression. Moreover, the speculated reason for it doesn’t surprise me at all. Many […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling Shew. Long week . . . and now jet lag. They say it takes one day for every time zone difference to recover. Las Vegas is three hours behind us, so it sounds like I won’t recover until Tuesday. I’ll be recovered just in time for Black Wednesday. Out of the drink and […]

     


    "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.
