To celebrate Independence Day (coming this Saturday), it is Secession Week over at Let A Thousand Nations Bloom. Here is a blurb from their intro post about why they are calling it secession rather than independence: The Fourth of July is commonly known as Independence Day, but a better term for it is Secession Day. … Continue reading Day 181 – Secession Week

Today, my parents and I went to the Huron Herb Fair at the Mulberry Creek Herb Farm in Huron. I am not all that interested in herbs, so I wandered around and took photos.
A few of my friends played at Peabody’s in Cleveland tonight, so I went out to take some photos of them and another band. As always, click on the photos to view them at a larger size.
I came across a PDF version of Aesop’s Fables today, and I spent a while reading them. While reading them, I was struck by the economic principles his fables contained! Though the principles were not named until long after his time, some of his fables definitely contained some ideas that modern economics uses. I suspect … Continue reading Day 176 – Aesop’s Fables

I decided to cook dinner for my parents tonight, so I made a spicy chicken stir fry, spinach salad, and vegetables with dip. This was my first serious try at cooking entirely by myself. (The photos above were an afterthought, so they are composed of the left-overs, not single portions. The portions were much bigger … Continue reading Day 173 – My Night to Cook
First of all, Happy Father’s Day, Dad! I love you! This morning, my parents and I went down to Fin Feather Fur in Ashland to let my Dad pick out his Father’s Day gift.

Today was a day of cleaning for me. Amanda came over and helped me clean out my room and we took a few bags of trash out and reorganized things significantly.

Today, I worked in the morning, then went to visit David Wagner. We decided to go canoeing on the Huron River, which was quite an adventure. The weather was excellent when we started out, but by the time we got about a mile and a half up the river, a huge thunderstorm rolled in. Around … Continue reading Day 170 – Canoeing in Huron
This summer, the Amherst Rotary Club is sponsoring live music on Thursdays at 7 p.m. in the park that it maintains in front of Amherst Hospital on Cleveland Ave. Tonight the LCCC Jazz Band was playing. I took the opportunity to go out and take some photos. Let me know what you think. As always, … Continue reading Day 169 – Music in the Park
Over the past few years, I have had numerous conversations with people on property rights and why I believe property owners should be able to use their property as they see fit, as long as it does not involve aggressing against another’s person or property. Here is a usual response I get: Friend – “So … Continue reading Day 168 – Two Articles Against Zoning Laws

First of all, thank you Joe Teets (nonarchist) for doing my updates for the past two days on such short notice. I flew home from New York on Friday, come home for 20 minutes to repack, then drove south to Ohio University for the weekend for my cousin’s graduation. We stayed in a cabin, which … Continue reading Day 165 – Weekend Recap

Thanks again for letting me post the last 2 days, thereby making my contribution .547945% of Project 365! I saw The Hangover last night (overrated in my opinion), so that … Continue reading Day 164 – Another Guest Post
