  • Grateful

    Dallas got hit by 80 mph winds yesterday. Not surprisingly, lots of homes, ~630,000, lost power, ours included. But almost exactly 12 hours later, our lights were back on. I think that’s an impressive response. Thank you to the men and women who did that!

  • from The Great Good Place by Ray Oldenburg /
    ... the third place tavern combines drinking with conversation such that each improves the other. The talking/drinking synergism is basic to the pub, tavern, taverna, bistro, saloon, estaminet, osteria -- whatever it is called and wherever it is found... [J]ust as conversation is enhanced by the temperate use of alcohol, the artful and witty game of conversation moderates consumption of liquor. As Tibor Scitovsky remarked with respect to those who know how to use a public drinking facility, "a half-pint of beer is to talk as bed is to making love -- one can do without, but does better with.”
