on markets and mark twain

This started with John but now seems to have a life of it’s own. This is a great example of Dan’s (not me, the other Dan) mind at work. It’s why I love his blog.


conserve for war 1943 posterIt’s nice to be reminded from time to time that our plight in this world , for better or worse , is most likely shared by plenty of others .There’s comfort , somehow , in that . What is it ? Misery loves company ? Whatever . Mark Twain said : All generalizations are false , including this one . 

I was reading the latest post written by another Dan , over at his blog No Facilities , about markets , and shopping , and marriage , and life , and college , and cooking .

About Dan Antion

Husband, father, woodworker, cyclist, photographer, geek - oh wait, I’m writing this like I only have 140 characters. I am all those things, and more, and all of these passions present me with opportunities to observe, and think about things that I can’t write about in other places. I have started this blog to catch the stuff that falls out, overflows and just plain doesn’t fit the other containers in my life.

Because it means I don’t have to go and the thrill of grocery shopping has been gone for quite a few years. So, we have an agreement – he goes and I keep quiet. Works pretty well except when he forgets something I really had a hankering for. :-)

      That’s a pretty good division of labor. I can be counted on in a pinch, but with my wife doing the cooking, I think she has to be doing the shopping, or she really has to invest time in a list. And, the list is going to include things like “a nice cut of meat” that will make no sense to me.


  2. I do love Mark Twain’s quotes. Back in the 80’s i had a Psych professor who said “Misery doesn’t love company. (The last thing a miserable person wants to be around is a happy person.) Misery loves miserable company.” So true. Hugs.
