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

    The Tuesday Eudemon

    Tuesday, October 31st, 2006

    My first issue of Rolling Stone arrived yesterday. Yup, I’m now a subscriber to the gray haired hippie rag. I received a subscription when I signed up as a member of the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame during my visit last summer. The cost of getting my large family in the door was cheaper with a [...]

    The Monday Moanin’ Eudemon

    Monday, October 30th, 2006

    What better way to perk up on Monday morning than to read this: testosterone levels are falling across the United State. Researchers don’t know why. I’ll hazard a guess: Men are so over-sexed, they get tired of it and don’t want It as much, so their bodies decrease production of testosterone. There are all sorts [...]

    Something for Sunday Morning

    Sunday, October 29th, 2006

    Jesus is the same today as He was in the Gospels (Heb 13:8). He is full of pity, mercy, and compassion for You (see Ps 103:8). You may be in a desert now (Ps 126:4), but Jesus can turn even the hottest desert into a place of refreshment and rejoicing (Ps 126:1-6; Jer 31:9).

    The Weekend Eudemon

    Saturday, October 28th, 2006

    An abbreviated WE today. I have to leave at 6:15 for my son’s last junior football game. I’d like to sleep on the way, but I’m driving, so that makes it tough. I might take a snooze when I get there, but I’ll probably end up reading a bit and taking an exercise walk or [...]

    Brews You Can Use IV

    Friday, October 27th, 2006

    Great site, if you’re dealing with keg issues. I rarely buy a keg anymore. The mess, the ice, the deposit, the 25% chance that the distributor will give you a defective pump, the heft (and corresponding bad back the next day). It’s simply not worth it. But I have to grapple with kegs at least [...]

    Brews You Can Use III

    Friday, October 27th, 2006

    Funny beer ads. A handful (some a bit racy). Make sure you watch this one until the end.

    Brews You Can Use II

    Friday, October 27th, 2006

    Guinness is going red. Daggone Commies. I can’t drink the stuff, incidentally. Might as well pour 10/40 down my throat.

    Brews You Can Use

    Friday, October 27th, 2006

    I missed this little gem last summer: Zen Beer. Wisconsin micro brewer BluCreek is coming out with a new beer called Zen. The idea is to give a brewski the supposed health benefits of green tea. The brewery said the English-style India Pale Ale could be the first of its kind and has a subtle [...]

    The Friday Eudemon

    Friday, October 27th, 2006

    All sorts of good stuff out there today, but I’m pressed for time. A bullet approach: If you didn’t last night’s The Office (the only TV show I watch, though I’ve seen it only five times), download it from iPod for $1.99. Hilarious. It’s about the “outing” of a gay co-worker. From what I could [...]

    Being the Crocodile Hunter

    Thursday, October 26th, 2006

    Mark Steyn’s regular obituary column in the current issue of The Atlantic Monthly talks about Steve Irwin. It’s a very nice tribute to the Aussie, notwithstanding this blurb that cracked me (caution: vulgar material coming up): There was more than a grain of truth in the South Park episode in which the guys are lounging [...]

    The Thursday Eudemon: Melvins, Juans, and Brucies

    Thursday, October 26th, 2006

    Possibly the best opening line of all news stories this week: A high school principal received a six-day suspension and a letter of reprimand for giving one of his students a wedgie. The rest of the story isn’t that great. I was hoping it was a form of corporal punishment, “Now, walk around like that [...]

    The Wednesday Eudemon

    Wednesday, October 25th, 2006

    When’s the last time I did a Wednesday Eudemon? It’s been awhile. Long-in-the-tooth readers might remember that this blog used be called “The Wednesday Eudemon.” That’s because I only posted on Wednesdays. That changed about 20 months ago, and so did the name. I’ve always liked finding studies that are common sense. This one isn’t [...]

     


    "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.
