    BYCU I’m not sure what to do with this information, but it strikes me as nifty: The most commonly searched beer in every state, according to Google. Most states are searching mainline denominations (and way too many are searching for Corona . . . awful stuff). Michigan, however, tilts differently: Detroit Beer Company. Bookmark it: […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling Well, summer is here. I had a very good weekend. The forecast called for rain throughout the weekend . . . and we only got a little. Actually, we got quite a bit, but it came at night or in big dumps, so 90% of the weekend was open for outdoor activities. I […]

    BYCU My two oldest sons have been in Oaxaca, Mexico for the past four weeks. They’re taking “immersion classes,” which means, “Do everything in Spanish for four weeks.” They live with a Spanish mom, take Spanish classes in Spanish, take excursions in Spanish . . . and drink like Mexicans. And that means plenty of […]

    From the Notebooks The four courts: Court of Law, Court of Religion, Court of Morals, Court of Taste and Manners. (Referred to on page 30 of Nock’s Memoirs) It seems the culture wars should be fought first in T&M, and then Morals. Too many of us cede the Taste and Manners (including me) but then […]

    Background: When I was the editor of Gilbert Magazine, I was responsible for the “Tremendous Trifles” column. It was occasionally hard to find a sufficient amount of interesting GKC material to fill the page, so John Peterson sent me a file full of Chesterton ancedotes. They were idiosyncratic, historical, and Chestertonian. He gave me permission […]

    Miscellaneous Rambling The farming crunch is on. Seedlings are going into the ground faster than cocktails into a Kennedy’s gut. Two dozen flower seedlings yesterday; a dozen more today, plus six tomato seedlings. More go in tomorrow. I would’ve put more in today, but it was just too cold and windy. And those two black […]

Meditation, even the most secular, focuses on taking yourself out of time and space. Why? Time and space are the realm […]

    "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.
