    Brews You Can Use I’ve never been a fan of the Bloody Mary. Primarily, because I detest tomato juice so I’ve never even tried it. But it’s still an American classic, and this article contains a handful of neat facts that are worth checking out: 6 Things about the Bloody Mary You Should Know. Excerpt: […]

    Amen to this. It baffles me that people refuse to acknowledge that, if the priest has 30 minutes, and there are ten people in line, and you take up 20 minutes, other people don’t get the sacrament at all. And it baffles me that people don’t appreciate that, if there are ten people in line, […]

    Theology on Tap, New Gardening Product, Tolkien Max is going to grow seedlings to order this spring: You place your order with him; we’ll grow it for delivery at the date you request. You then pay for it and transplant it. All non-GMO all the time; organic. For an extra dollar, he’ll provide it in […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling Halfway through January. We’re getting there. My gardening finger is getting itchy. If yours is too and you’re looking to start seeds indoors, check out products by Bootstrap Farmer. They’re a little more expensive, but far better than anything else on the market that I’ve seen. I provide a few product ad links […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling The new podcast is up. It starts with a review of The Mind and Art of Albert Jay Nock, an unlikely book that makes my Top 50 books of all time. The Show Notes: The Mind and Art of Albert Jay Nock. Great book/introduction into the life and thought of the godfather of […]

    BYCU The Brutal Hammer of Truth continues to crank out a study supply of BYCU stories: Interesting piece: the demise of the hotel mini-bar. Basically, it appears to come down to this: Hotels charge such outrageous prices for the drinks, no one buys them, so now hotels are getting rid of the mini-bars because they […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling I guess LeBron made a reference to Jewish people and their supposed wealth and there was an outcry. This apparently happened during the holiday season, during which I was either indisposed or inebriated, so I missed it. I first read about it in last week’s “The Week that Perished” at Taki magazine. As […]

    Midweek Rambling Whew. No energy these days. I think I had touch of stomach flu or something last week. I started feeling better on Sunday, then came down with a migraine on Monday. Yesterday, I was just kinda dragging all day, though I was able to log in a full day of work and a […]

    More Miscellaneous Rambling Kinder and gentler ink: “With cleveland.com’s right-to-be-forgotten experiment, we are removing names from dated stories about minor crimes and other embarrassing news.” Link. It’s great to hear that I’ll get my Elvis-obsessed indiscretion at the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame out of the newspapers. Interesting: 30 Transgender Regretters Come Out Of The Closet. […]

     


    "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.
