Just defined economics in the simplest terms possible.
Basically, getting and spending.
"Economics is the most mathematical of the social sciences. Thats not because economists are smarter than, say, sociologists or political scientists; trust me, its quite possible to say stupid things with equations. Its because the subject matter of economics basically getting and spending is cruder and hence easier to measure than the subject matter of our sister fields."
I have a Kindle I found that you can "lend" books you have bought to others who either have a Kindle or can read Kindle files.
This loan is for a 2 week period. I would be willing to lend books to other DU'rs who would like to just sample to see if they woiuld want the book or read the whole thing.
Is there a better forum to ask this question?
From 2017. I think I have more from my camera.
On a train ride from Vienna we talked to the head priest of a big church in Munich. I asked if they had organ concerts.
His reply was that they didn't have a significant organ....
This is St. Margaret's which has concerts both by visiting organists and the Church organist Christian Bischof, pictured.
Since 2017 when these were taken they have completely rebuilt the organ and added to it.

How they work..
Driving across Ireland. From 2017's phone archives.
doing some electronic decluttering.
Read an article about decluttering your electronic lives. Other than going through cables you will never use again and send off to recycle it was to work on your phone. these days I transfer my hone in 6 month blocks to my external hard drive then erase those from the phone. Here are some from Salzburg from 2017.

We watched a German TV show on customs enfocement. They are trying to catch contrabrand from getting to market.
They have an X-Ray truck, at least one. They park it in an area that has plenty of room for vehicles to maneuver. They extend a frame work to make an arch. When a vehicle is brought in it is parked beside the unit and the driver gets out. Then then the X-ray truck moves down the length of the vehicle being inspected. 2 people are in a lead room and watch the video of the X-ray. Good for tractor trailers and smaller.
To keep TFGs mouth shut and tiny fingers off his phone.
When he shows up in Georgia for his arraignment, he gets held for 24 hours before he is arraigned. During the arraignment, tell him this is what will happen if he violates the court orders.
Fits right in with the conservative scared straight mantra they used to spout for kids.
A new name for TFG, Donnie Dumpster, ...
